Pakistan’s Dangerous Game Plan – with a Little Chinese Help » Indian Defence Review

August 18, 2017

Since the ghastly terrorist bombing of the Lal Shahbaz Qalandar shrine in Sehwan, Sindh, that killed some 83 Sufi Muslims and injured over 250 on February 16, the Pakistan Army claims to have killed 100 terrorists in 24 hours in a countrywide crackdown. At this pace they should solve the problem of terrorism in Pakistan in no time — the same way they ‘eradicated’ it from North Waziristan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and FATA through ‘Zarb-e-Azb’. Or did they?

Doklam, China’s Strategic Calculus and India’s Policy Options » Indian Defence Review

August 11, 2017

It is almost two months since Indian and Chinese soldiers became locked in a standoff at Doklam in the Sikkim Sector. The faceoff was triggered when a team of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) was prevented by Indian troops from extending a class-5 track in the Dolam Plateau area which is part of Bhutanese territory. The Indian Army acted in response to a request from the Royal Bhutan Army under the terms of the 2007 Bilateral Friendship Treaty. Moreover, the PLA’s track building is in contravention of the 2012 Agreement between the Special Representatives of India and China, whereby the status quo was required to be maintained in the said area until the resolution of the trijunction in consultation with Bhutan.

August 2, 2017

Space has been called the new high ground in war, but cyber-space is truly the new frontier that has made boundaries irrelevant. War can now be waged against a military adversary from any computer on earth. Recent events highlight how this has been happening with increasing frequency.

Spare no weapon if Doklam poses existential crisis » Indian Defence Review

July 31, 2017

Is the Doklam faceoff, India’s Cuban crisis moment? The recent statement by a Chinese expert that if India has the right to interfere on behalf of Bhutan in the Chumbi Valley, China accordingly has the right to interfere in Kashmir on behalf of Pakistan — is reflection of the Chinese mindset which is ‘One Belt One Road’ (OBOR) obsessed. By drawing this parallel China seeks to legitimize its illegal presence in POK (Gilgit-Baltistan). Further, it is also an indication that China may be preparing the ground for

Its a different world: China may have chosen the Wrong Time to pick a Fight » Indian Defence Review

July 21, 2017

A major reason for the seemingly interminable fraught relations between India and its two unfriendly neighbours – Pakistan and China – is that both these countries are scared of India’s soft power. Pakistan is concerned that an improvement of ties through measures like erasing the Line of Control – the de facto cease fire line – that divides Kashmir, as was suggested by former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, and apparently had then Pakistan President General Pervez Musharraf’s concurrence, will pave the way for India’s overwhelming and essentially Hindu cultural ethos – propagated in the main by Bollywood films and music – to undermine Pakistan’s Islamic tenets. Pakistan has to keep up its guard, therefore, by treating India constantly as an enemy.
