If Pakistan splinters, it will hit the biggest stakeholder and benefactor China. In order to safeguard its strategic interests, Beijing therefore will make every endeavor to prevent the breakup of Pakistan, even to the extent of military intervention in support of the Pakistan Army.

…the migrant Muslims in West Asia (Middle East) while introducing themselves take pains to assert that they are Muslims from India and not Pakistan.

The Chinese will suffer major setback, if dysfunctional Pakistan splinters in the near future.

Many Malaysian Muslims will hasten to tell you that their country should not be compared to Pakistan. Or the migrant Muslims in West Asia (Middle East) while introducing themselves take pains to assert that they are Muslims from India and not Pakistan.

The Union of India’s consolidation and integration as a nation will get a new fillip, as the distraction created by Pakistan in the name of religion is eliminated.

Serious contradictions within Pakistan have pushed it in the pit of despair from where; it is almost impossible to recover. It is reported that many young Pakistanis out of sheer frustration are repudiating Islam and converting to other religions.

Possibly, majority of the Pakistan’s dominant community, Punjabi Sunni Muslims living in their isolated world of self-destruction do not realize the damage they are doing to Islam.

The likely breakup of Pakistan in the near future will stall expanding Chinese footprints.

Pakistan is appears to be hurtling towards self-destruction.

Beijing treats Pakistan as an extension of its war machine and a surrogate colony. The likely breakup of Pakistan in the near future will stall expanding Chinese footprints.

Impaired Pakistan is a cause of deep worry for Beijing, since Islamabad’s capability to tie-down India by launching terrorist attacks will also suffer.

If Pakistan splinters, there will be enormous gains for India.

PoK will revert back to the Indian fold and peace will prevail. This is the singular reason for Chinese to move their troops into PoK. The strategy is two-fold. First, occupy or gain influence over as much occupied Indian Territory as possible, incase Pakistan breaks up.

Second, to keep up the pressure on Indian borders since Pakistan is no position to do the same, given its present internal disarray. Further, China does not want India to be emboldened to mount an attack on Pakistan, which is already gasping for oxygen.

Anti-India rabble rousing by ISI inspired elements in Bangladesh against India will no longer be possible.

With the break-up of Pakistan, ISI activities like export of fake Indian currency and infiltration of terrorists through Nepal will cease. Anti-India rabble rousing by ISI inspired elements in Bangladesh against India will no longer be possible.

American attempts to unhook Pakistan from China will continue to fail despite the dangling of carrot of modern weapons and technology as Islamabad’s strategic dependency on Beijing is now irreversible.

The Union of India’s consolidation and integration as a nation will get a new fillip, as the distraction created by Pakistan in the name of religion is eliminated.

India then will be able to concentrate on the principal threat posed by China.

Fragmented Pakistan will lesson the heavy financial burden placed on India’s economy with drastic reduction in the security apparatus. This will enable young India to make rapid economic strides that can outpace ageing China in a short span of time.

Similarly, colossal gains accrue to the West, if Pakistan splinters.

The West led by America is losing the plot in Afghanistan because the problem is the Pakistan Army and its Irregular Forces led by General Kayani.

The West led by America is losing the plot in Afghanistan because the problem is the Pakistan Army and its Irregular Forces led by General Kayani. Washington was forced to admit recently this worst kept secret, when its supply routes to Afghanistan were snapped by GHQ Rawalpindi and NATO convoys carrying fuel to Afghanistan were conveniently torched by the ISI controlled Ghost Army of Jihad with impunity.

American attempts to unhook Pakistan from China will continue to fail despite the dangling of carrot of modern weapons and technology as Islamabad’s strategic dependency on Beijing is now irreversible.

The ‘real estate’ of Pakistan was created so that the West could monitor and manipulate the former Soviet Union, China and India.

However, if Pakistan falls apart, Sind which has very strong democratic yearning is certain to charter its own independent path but in consonance with Indian value system.

Independent Baluchistan with its rich resources will be definitely against the Chinese, who in conjunction with Islamabad are exploiting its resources.

Independent Baluchistan with its rich resources will be definitely against the Chinese, who in conjunction with Islamabad are exploiting its resources. Denial of Gawdar port will preclude Chinese navy from the warm waters of Indian Ocean and direct access to West Asia.

Afghanistan will gradually witness unhindered growth of democracy; the spoilers Pakistan Army with ISI would have disappeared.

Therefore, democracies will find many friendly places to operate from and access the resources of Central Asia to the mutual benefit of all players.

The biggest gain for the democracies will be that China’s expanding authoritarian influence will be sharply curtailed. Also the Jihad fervor being orchestrated in this part of the world by the Punjabi Sunnis will die a natural death due to fatigue and lack of resources.

The spread of two authoritarian streams, Chinese communism and the Islamic fundamentalism, in combination or otherwise, threaten the survival of democracies in Asia.

With independent Sind and Baluchistan, the Chinese supply lines from Gawdar would not be possible.

If Pakistan splinters, one of the threats will be substantially neutralized.

This in turn will make Central Asia a safer place where Pakistan aims to attain strategic depth with the help of Islamic fundamentalists.

If Pakistan splinters, Sinkiang in China will face renewed instability and the Chinese flank in occupied Tibet will come under severe pressure.

If Pakistan splinters, Sinkiang in China will face renewed instability and the Chinese flank in occupied Tibet will come under severe pressure.

With independent Sind and Baluchistan, the Chinese supply lines from Gawdar would not be possible. This will force China to revert to ‘peaceful rise’ instead of laying claim on territory or islands of other nations.

The power of the Shias will increase, thus creating a balance with some of the Sunni sects that are mainly responsible for terrorist acts worldwide. Two successive British Prime Ministers have stated Pakistan accounts for 75 percent of all such acts.

If Pakistan splinters, this percentage will drop to abysmal levels.

Most often remarks on Pakistan are prefaced by, “ Just like you Indians cannot live with Pakistan…”

The truth therefore is that “Pakistan cannot live with India.” The converse is absolutely preposterous.

This premise is false. An average Indian can live with Pakistan, as long as Islamabad does not interfere in internal affairs or connive against India. It is irrelevant whether India dialogues, trades or maintains diplomatic relationship with Pakistan; growth of the Indian economy or the growing status of India is not even remotely connected with failure or success of Islamabad. The ‘Pakistan Story’ failed because of the inherent flaws in the values professed and not because of “Kashmir”! The “Indian Story “ shows success because of its belief in secular democratic values.

The truth therefore is that “Pakistan cannot live with India.” The converse is absolutely preposterous.

If Pakistan splinters, it will hit the biggest stakeholder and benefactor China. In order to safeguard its strategic interests, Beijing therefore will make every endeavor to prevent the breakup of Pakistan, even to the extent of military intervention in support of the Pakistan Army.

If Pakistan splinters, forces led by Barak Obama will win. On the contrary, if China is successful in its intervention, authoritarian regimes will hold sway in Asia.

Who wins the great game in Asia, will depend on the finesse with which the cards are dealt by the contending sides.

  1. Excellent article, a subject close to my heart.

    However, if Pakistan was to splinter, China could well enter pok and attempt/succeed in annexing it, an aspect that needs India’s serious consideration.

    20 % of Baluchistan is under control of Afghanistan and Iran. This remains unaddressed.

    Meanwhile, to speed matters to such, govts in exile should be facilitated, on both sides of Pakistan.

    The durand line remains uncovered in the text, but then the map says it all…

  2. As a Pakistani American, I believe that since the formation of Pakistan and India on the principle of Two Nation Theory by Jinnah and Ghandhi, India strives faster than Pakistan to build its national fabric of a nation. This only occurred because the Pakistan Army under direct control and benefactor America and India and All western forces banded together to get rid of Mohtarma Fatima Jinnah from the National Scene of Pakistan politics. If Mohtarma Fatima Jinnah would have become the Prime Minister, Pakistan being a smaller half of United India would have risen as an Asian tiger both economically and militarily and religiously because true Islam doesn’t promote terrorism or corruption. However All this was curtailed by our unpatriotic Pakistan Army, Establishment and Politicians who were bought and sold for a price. And since then till now it’s the same setup that has totally bankrupt the country and brought it at the brink of destruction.

  3. Pakistans corrupt and jihadi military has no reason to exist other than periodically promoting the bogie of Hindustan.

    The assessment is superb and would help the entire region to develop, currently the basket case of Pakistan is acting as brakes on development of entire sub continent by exporting salafi and wahabi elements to foment trouble in both Afganistan and Hindustan.

    We should have annexed pakistan after 1971 war but we resorted to funny arrangements where the loser pakistan gained advantage e.g. Shimla agreement.

    The less said about china the better, they don’t believe in any sort of international norms or laws. They produce weird maps showing half of the bloody world belongs to them…..in future they could claim that even US and USSR were ruled by Fu-KING dynasty 10000 years back.

  4. Bharat Verma’s – wishful thinking PART ii –

    To counter the rise of China he say’s, Beijing can be made to suffer a major setback to its long-term economic and internal security plans if Pakistan splinters as this will preclude the Chinese navy from access to the warm waters of the Indian Ocean and direct access to West Asia through Gwadar, but then dampens his wishful thinking by adding that to prevent this from ever happening China is ready to make every endeavor, even to the extent of military intervention in support of the Pakistan army.
    To entice the US and its Western allies he say’s, colossal gains accrue to the West if Pakistan splinters. The West led by America is losing the [$1 trillion] plot in Afghanistan because the problem is the Pakistan Army and its Irregular Forces and if Pakistan splinters and the spoilers, Pakistan Army and ISI disappear, then Afghanistan will gradually witness unhindered growth of democracy.
    The biggest gain for the US and its allies if Pakistan splinters would be that China’s expanding authoritarian influence would be sharply curtailed in the region and there would be many friendly places to operate from and access the rich resources of Central Asia to the mutual benefit of all players.
    A lot of wishful thinking by Bharat Verma, veteran Indian army cavalry officer and former editor of Indian Defence Review website and author of the books, Fault Lines, Indian Armed Forces and India Under Fire: Essays on National Security, in his blog titled, “If Pakistan splinters” http://www.indiandefencereview.com/if-pakistan-splinters/ has schemed. But then the Bharat Verma a so called defence expert and author on defence and national security completely fails to tell the readers as to how India could execute his ‘diabolic’ plan of splintering Pakistan and curtail the rise of China in the region no one will ever know – Bharat Verma and his wishful thinking were burnt to ashes in 2014 on his demise, while this article was published in 2015.

  5. Bharat Verma’s – wishful thinking
    If Pakistan splinters is defence expert Bharat Verma wishful thinking wherein with his diabolic imagination he writes, if Pakistan splinters it will lessen the heavy financial burden placed on India’s economy with drastic reduction in the security apparatus. and this will enable India to make rapid economic strides and outpace China in a short span of time.
    He further imagines, Pakistan appears to be hurtling towards self-destruction due to some serious [sectarian] contradictions within Pakistan and if certain disgruntled elements are pushed into a pit of despair from where it is almost impossible to return and as a result if Pakistan splinters, this could stall the expanding Chinese footprints in the region. But in the same breath says Pakistan then will be treated by China as an extension of its war machine and surrogate colony.
    Again with more wishful thinking he assumes that Baluchistan with its rich resources is already up in arms against Islamabad for exploiting its natural resources and presumes that If due to this Pakistan splinters, Sindh which has a very strong democratic yearning is certain to charter its own independent path, but in consonance with Indian [aspirations] value system.
    If Pakistan splinters he tries to reason [with the West] the spread of two authoritarian streams, Chinese communism and Islamic fundamentalism, both in combination or otherwise, will not only reduce the threat to existing democracies in Asia, but also deter other authoritarian regimes from holding sway in Asia.
    To counter the rise of China he say’s, Beijing can be made to suffer a major setback to its long-term economic and internal security plans if Pakistan splinters as this will preclude the Chinese navy from access to the warm waters of the Indian Ocean and direct access to West Asia through Gwadar, but then dampens his wishful thinking by adding that to prevent this from ever

  6. Independent Baluchistan with its rich resources will be definitely against the Chinese, who in conjunction with Islamabad are exploiting its resources. The Chinese will suffer major setback, if dysfunctional Pakistan splinters in the near future. Beijing therefore will make every endeavor to prevent the breakup of Pakistan, even to the extent of military intervention in support of the Pakistan Army.

    But with Sindh and Baluchistan province’s deep seethed and simmering resentment of Punjabi domination in Pakistan – with both communities speaking the other’s language, sharing the same customs, traditions and culture and Baloch and Sindhi inter-marriages common – and with both provinces facing the entire length of the Arabian Sea coast from Sir Creek in Sindh to Gwadar in Balochistan – Chinese supply lines to the Arabian Sea in Karachi and Gawdar can be severed – and denying access to Karachi and Gawdar ports can preclude the Chinese navy from the warm waters of the Indian Ocean and direct access to West Asia.

  7. We had offered many chances to Pak to mend its ways. But failed. So the next best way is to support liberation wars in sindh, balochistan and gilgit baltistan. This is easy and economical than to go for all out war in view of nuclear weapons with Pak.

  8. Pakistan is mindful of her security concerns also. The reason why the armed forces of Pakistan were not destroyed in wars with India, is because Pakistan was looking to fight limited wars with India to do within a restricted time frame, whereby she would make noticeable gains within a short time and then perhaps negotiate keeping the gains with the Indian govt.. I don’t think Pakistan ever wanted a prolonged war with India, and I don’t know why Pakistan would initiate a war with India, for the reasons I previously mentioned. Those that matter in Pakistan want her people to be wary of India.
    The current stalemate with India that Pakistan shares, perhaps have a relation with the war of Bangladesh’s independence. I believe, that Ms. Indira Gandhi divided Pakistan partly because she wanted to send a political message to the Indian voters. Perhaps the Pakistan establishment feel that Ms. Gandhi wanted to impress her domestic audience too, and that is why she wanted to liberate Bangladesh. The Pakistan army has the same distrust for Pakistani politicians also, and that is why they hanged Zulfikar Bhutto.
    Being in a multifaceted conflict with India gives the impression that Pakistan cannot control her foreign policy to advantage, and Pakistan cannot help herself in this regard. Does the Pakistan army think that if the people of Pakistan are not reminded of conflict with India, then they will want to reunite with India?

    • This comment has all its facts incorrect historically as well as politically. Pakistan was dismembered in 1971, but its the Bangadeshi people who wanted it. When millions of refugees came to India from east Pakistan the crisis of which was precipitated by Pak army, it could not have been resolved without Indian army intervention.Another reason for 1971 intervention was ISI support to mizo and naga militants from 1956 to 1971.

  9. As the situation is developing in balouchistan sind area break up of pak is eminent.india needs to strengthen its forces without further delay, they would be required to intervene.

  10. To reduce complaints, a CO of a unit of a pure regiment with Sikh, Ahir & Jat batteries mixed up the class competition leading to one of the officer’s complaining that earlier all problems could be traced to the Sikh battery & after the mixing no one knows where the trouble came from. This will be the result of Pakistan’s break up and the whole of India will be the arena for the troubles that now afflict Pakistan alone.

  11. “If Pakistan splinters …” then India will go all out to put it back again …. as a good neighbour (we never propagate violence), as part of national strategy (a stable neighbour is in India’s national interest!), as a proponent of Panchsheel (Hindi Chini bhai bhai), and as absolute impotents (we really dont want to go to war since we dont know what to do given our present state of military preparedness) …. as Late FM was asked by the RM b4 71 ops ” Sham kuch karo na…”

  12. Sir, Before USA eXIT AFGHANISTAN, INDIA MUST CREATE MILITARY & AIRBASE CLOSE TO AF PAK BORDER. AT LEAST 50000 FORCE WITH TANKS OR FIGHTER JETS IF CREATED, PAK WILL COME UNDER PRESSURE TO PROTECT ITSELF. INDIAN FORCE IN AFGHAN CAN ALSO SLAP CHINA IF REQUIRED.

    We have invested close to 15000 cr in Afghanistan,ISI &CHINA WAITING TO CAPTURE. INDIAS REAL FOREIGN POLICY TEST WILL BEGIN NOW. INDIA ALSO HAVE LEGITIMATE RIGHT TO KEEP FORCES FOR PROTECTION OF INDIAS BUSINESS INTERESTS,AS 5 CONSURTIUM INVESTING 10 B$

  13. INDIA NEEDS TO GIVE MORAL POLITICAL FINANCIAL SUPPORT TO THE DISENCHANTED PAKISTANS IN NORTHERN AREAS , GILGIT BALTISTAN , PAKTUNKWA, SIND BALUCHISTAN AND THE TRIBAL REGIONS . THE DISINTEGRATION OF PAKISTAN WILL ONLY ENHANCE FASTER AND A SMALL NUCLEAR ARMED PUNJAB PAKISTAN WILL THEN LEARN TO LIVE WITH INDIA PEACEFULLY .

  14. Officer Verma, you are blessed with precocious imaginative talent !. Wonder if your cavalry engagement over years disabled your spectral atmospheric vision on real-time ground spread out !

    I begin with a personal episode. After 9/11 the then U.S. Energy Minister Spencer Abraham made it to Vienna to launch the U.S. Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI) that was well-received with Russian participation. At the reception I confronted him personally with the query, if he knew more from U.S. Intel assessment of Bin Laden (BL) meeting with 2 Muslim-fundamentalist Pak nuclear scientists secretly at Pak-Afghan border and potential consequences therefrom. His face turned cold and said quietly. “Yes, we are very much aware and we take it very seriously”. I immediately sensed then what was running hot in the heads U.S. military strategists.

    The point. Any Pak splintering or even foretell signals of it will send alarm waves to 5 militarily powerful countries – the U.S., Russia, China, India and Israel. All of them will gear up their submarine air, and land-based missiles and Missile Defence Shields networked with satellites for any eventuality. Why? Pak Army could lose control of its nukes through soldiers sympathetic to Jihadist cause, once implosion unrolls, like the 2 Pak nuclear scientists who met BL were, that militant groups would want to use them immediately to destroy millions of lives in South & West Asia and Middle-East. Israel and India will definitely be main targets, because both are predominantly non-Muslim democratic States. From any side a preventive, surgical destruction of all Pak nuclear facilities with collateral human destruction will follow to prevent a greater catastrophe, even if India doesn’t act due no-first use. That being the basic, ground strategic bottom-line all other scenarios you painted dissolve into irrelevance. No objection to wishful dreams!

    • Hi George,

      I felt compelled to reply to your post and like to point out some strategic fallacies that the naive westerners like you have about Pakistan…what difference does it really make for us Indians or for that matter to the world at large whether the so called nuclear weapons of Pakistan falls into the hands of irregular forces or remains with the already heavily Jihadised Pakistani Army….I recommend you to read the Christina Fair’s latest book on Pakistani army where she has termed them as International Insurgents and Pakistan as ideological state…so in reality the danger of weapons falling into the hands of the irregulars does not increase the dangers in any way.

      • Hi Debojyoti,
        Not having read that book is not a disqualification to point out that the concept of “international insurgents” needs be clearly defined. Dangers of weapons falling in the hands of irregulars, and the annihilation potential generated not being increased , is technically naïve, because of the plausibility of portable mini nukes. Pl. consult a nuclear weapons’ expert on this. National Geographic once referred to Pakistan as a State itself being a WMD (Weapon of Mass Destruction). Pakistan’s biggest strategic fallacy is its nuclear “first-use”, having learnt from NATO, as one Pakistani diplomat told me. You think Western (and Eastern – Russia & China) military doctrines are naïve strategic fallacies? If you read deeper into literature, you will realise that they are based on hard-core technical destruction logic, nothing “naïve” about.

        Where I possibly would agree is that the best security for the world is to get rid of all weapons of mass destruction. That can only start when hate is turned into love towards fellow human beings. Hope you will agree.

    • Yes, This is definitely the first Possibility that may unfold.When the Erstwhile Soviet Union broke up the, Americans were concerned about the various nuclear warheads spread out in the USSR..Even Ukraine was forced to remove / Dismantle the nuclear warheads present on its soil by Fake Guarantees of Safety from the Americans & Russians.

  15. Terrible analysis. “PoK will revert back to the Indian fold and peace will prevail.” is a shocking conclusion and reason for China to send troops to PoK. India will start breathing hard if PoK and Waziristan falls in the hands of Taliban / Islam fundamentalists. If they infiltrate J & K the only option will be to launch airpower and kill civilians in collateral damage govong a filip to Jihadist recruitments. Agree with Sunny, who seems to be Pakistani on this point. But disagree with him. Indian populace are not even remotely looking to occupying PoK or Pakistan for the same reason that it will place India next door to Taliban

    • Terrible arithmetic Hindus are ‘ Muh mein ram bagal mein Churi’ all want to liberate Tibet , take back Kashmir and annex upto Hindu Kush mountians it is not you or me who matter but the large majority amongst the common man who call the shots but they fire with slienced weapons just recollect we did with Babri masjid,Hyderabad , Junagadh, Goa, Sikkim dear Rome was not built in a day

  16. The most important thing that the writer has ignored while dreaming is that Pakistan is the only wall left between India and Taliban. The day when this wall will be removed then India’s fate will not be different than the dream India is dreaming about Pakistan. Writer mentioned China and Afghanistan but dint even touched the topic that “What will happen to India?”, when Pakistan splits and nuclear arsenals falls in the hands of Taliban or in-case there will be 4-5 muslim nuclear countries in their west. I doubt that India would be able to enjoy fun for long time if they also include India in this dream.

    • The difference now is the taliban is aided by the Pakistani interests to cause harm to India with whatever carrots rings a talibs bell. With Pakistan gone so will the support structure that the taliban enjoy which will make it difficult to attack India.

      I agree with you on the Nuclear arsenal falling in the wrong hands, but I believe there is already a plan in place by USA, INDIA and Israel to ensure this does not happen and this will be supported by Iran also.

  17. Very well written!!!

    I will enjoy watching the fun. They have sowed the wind on their own lands and first lost Bangladesh and now are well on their way to reaping the whirlwind. Let’s watch the fun in Balochistan.

    India should take all the arms & ammo. we’ve captured from the the terrorists and fund the Balochis…

  18. first of all take care of ur own home.India is more vulnerable to splinter than Pakistan.What about Indian Punjab,Maoist,Naxalites.7 sister states of asam,Hyderabad.Uttar pardes and many more states in india which are struggling for independence from indian and fighting againts rogue indian army.Insha Allah very soon they all succeed and india will splinter in more than 30 pieces.Pakistan and china will get than a peaceful and clean neighbourhood.and remember u indians dont take Pakistan easy we are AlhamduLilllah Muslims and know how to kill and how to die.we have teached u rubbish hindus :Warfare:.If india in near future waged a war in Pakistan than vicious cycle in india will progress rapidly and there will be no more thing like;united india; on world map.you will be no more in race of top 10 economies even u see stone age.It is true that Pakistan is in crisis now but they all resolve Insha Allah and dont pose such rubbish and wrong material againts Pakistan u Old monkey Bharat Verma.

    • The problem with most Pakistanis is that they are in a state of denial that this is happening to them, the smart rich ones have already established a base in UK or USA to leave Pak territory once things go down hill.

      Coming to your point of you belong to Martial race holds no water with India for the specific reason, that we are not interested in you, we are not your enemy, you need to recognise that the enemy is internal to you , if you look at the attacks that have happened in Pak are done by the same terror groups who where raised with the sole intention of waging a war with India. You will end up fighting your own people.

      The biggest issu India will face in case of a Pak collapse is the influx of refugees from Pak , this will refugee wave will be very difficult and dangerous to mange with many terrorists infiltrating both India , Afghanistan and Iran

  19. Even pak split, terrorism find new land to breed, until saudi n gulf funds terrorism,, and fact is, india is very poor to tackle such strategy to counter against even pak n china.. neither army upper ones nor politicians have such brains to tackle against strategy, they are busy with filling their own pockets.

  20. This is a very well written article. I hope it happens soon. The establishment in the US also knows very well that Pakistan is playing a double game. I think the financial aid currently being given to Pakistan is only for the supply lines to be kept open. Once Pakistan loses its relevance to the US, all aid should probably stop. Why should the US give aid to Pakor any other country when it is not relevant anymore? Moreover, I strongly suspect that the Pak army and ISI which control the government receive most of the aid, and hence it is spent on military and hardly on civilian projects.

    To reduce the Chinese support to Pakistan, harsh sanctions must be imposed on Pakistan due to its unrelenting support to fundamentalists, and continuous proliferation of nuclear weapons. Sanctions on Iran should dwarf the sanctions on Pakistan. This will starve the Pakistani military – the defacto government of Pakistan.

    When Pakistan reaches this level of dangerous instability (I think it is pretty close to it), a joint intervention by NATO, India, Russia, South Korea, Israel, and all other countries which have been threatened by Pakistan must be carried out. Sindh and Balochistan must be liberated as new countries with all their riches and mineral wealth for themselves.
