History Department of Lahore College for Women University, organized a seminar on “Fall of Dhaka in the future perspective” by Dr. Rizwan Ullah Kokab, Government College University, Faisalabad, on 21 December, 2015.
The separation of East Pakistan was culmination of the weakness of certain institutions of Pakistan’s political system. This failure of the institutions was in turn the result of the failure of the leadership of Pakistan who could not understand the significance of the political institutions and could not manoeuvre the institutions for the strength and unity of Pakistan. Like in every political system the political parties were one of the major institutions in Pakistan which could enable the federation of Pakistan to face the challenge of separatism successfully. He explained that how any national political party could not grow and mature in Pakistan and thus a deterrent of the separatism could not be established. He has also revealed that the political parties were not strengthened by the leaders who always remained stronger than the parties and continued driving the parties for the sake of their personal political motives. Like language and provincial autonomy, the absence ofnationwide party organisation was one of the factors whichbecame instrumental in the successes of the Bengali separatistmovement. The leaders of Pakistan used and damaged every politicalparty through their domination over them individually. Regionalparties were developed and national parties were discouraged inthe restrictive atmosphere. When Pakistani culture needed thequest for a national party, Pakistan Muslim League’s national status declined and the leaders could do nothing to save it. Verylimited efforts, on behalf of the leaders, were made to developnational parties in well-organized manner, in contrary to theorganized political parties which could be seen developing in thegrowth of Bengali Movement.
The restrictions over free development of the parties anddomination of the leaders decreased the positive impacts of theparties and increased the negative effects of the rise of incapableleaders. The leaders who could or tried to establish nationalpolitical parties were blocked in many ways. In this way, thepolitical parties vis-a-vis the leadership weakened and they couldnot help in restraining the separatist movement.

Mr. Mahboob Ahmad apprised the audience the Relations between India and Pakistan have been complex due to a number of historical and political events. Relations between the two states have been defined by the violent Partition of British India in 1947, the Kashmir Conflict and the numerous Military Conflicts fought between the two nations. Consequently, even though the two South Asian nations share Linguistic, cultural, geographic, and economic links, their relationship has been plagued by hostility and suspicion. The insurgents who initially started their movement as a pro-Kashmiri independence movement, have gone through a lot of change in their ideology. Most of the insurgents portray their struggle as a religious one. Indian analysts allege that by supporting these insurgents, Pakistan is trying to wage a Proxy War against India while Pakistan claims that it regards most of these insurgent groups as "freedom fighters" rather than terrorists. Internationally known to be the most deadly theatre of conflict, nearly 10 million people, including Muslims, Hindus and Buddhists, have been fighting a daily battle for survival. The cross-border firing between India and Pakistan, and the terrorist attacks combined have taken its toll on the Kashmiris, who have suffered poor living standards and an erosion of human rights.
