ISLAMABAD: Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Syed Asim Munir’s recent maneuvers have stirred a sense of unease in India, drawing attention to the ramifications of his performance.
The entry of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) into the economic landscape of Pakistan has sent ripples of anxiety across the border in India.
The strategic foreign investments, a result of the economic revitalization measures spearheaded by Pakistan’s Army Chief, have triggered apprehensions in Indian policy circles about the potential outcomes of enhanced foreign engagement.
Worries in India have intensified as the economic fruits of these foreign investments, prompted by the decisive actions of Pakistan’s Army Chief, become increasingly evident. In response, Indian media outlets have adopted a negative narrative, casting a shadow over the efforts aimed at resuscitating Pakistan’s economy.
On social media, particularly on X (formerly Twitter), the hashtag “Well Done Army Chief” has emerged as a top trend.
This reflects the recognition of the Army Chief’s timely decisions to breathe life into the country’s economic landscape. However, in a twist of narrative, Indian media outlets have painted these commendable efforts in a less favorable light, attempting to downplay the positive impact.
Adding fuel to the speculative fire, Indian analysts have accused Pakistan, albeit in the guise of diplomatic critique, suggesting that the UAE’s investments might pave the way for the privatization of Pakistani enterprises. This assertion, however, remains a contentious viewpoint subject to further analysis.
Meanwhile, the Pakistan Stock Exchange 100 index has reached an unprecedented high, courtesy of the recent influx of UAE investments.
The multi-billion-dollar commitment from the UAE is strategically channeled into projects under the Special Investment Facilitation Council (SIFC), raising eyebrows in India about the targeted investment facilities for Pakistan.
