Nagpur: Thunder of guns, blood here and there, screams and shouts, sounds total anarchy?
Well that is the ground zero report from Kashmir valley. Soldiers are dying in attempts to save our countries sanctity from cross-border terrorism; coming in from POK subsidized by Pakistan, which is home and training ground for many militant groups.
Tensions have reemerged in the disputed territory. Curfew was on Tuesday lifted across Kashmir, except from six police station areas of Srinagar, in view of the improving situation, even as normal life remained disrupted in the Valley for the 74th straight day. The situation in Kashmir today is now as dire as it was when over a million soldiers were always a hair-string trigger way from turning the territory into one of the world’s worst conflict zones. Since July 8, when a popular young Muslim rebel militant Burhan Wani was killed in a gunfight with Indian security forces, the Kashmiri separatists aided by Pakistan have sewed upon this situation and are trying to bake their unworthy bread.
Shocking statements came from across the border stating that they might think of using nuclear warheads if required against India in a war. The two countries now sit on roughly 120 nuclear warheads each enough to eradicate life from earth several times over.
Midst of this anarchy nihilism our country has moved the units of Indian Army and Indian Air Force to forward air bases near Line of Control (LoC) to be prepared for a surgical strike as part of India’s three-phased strategy. (As stated in few Pakistani media reports).
The report further stated that Pakistan would respond with full force in case of any strike by India.
What is Cold Start Doctrine?
Cold Start Doctrine is a military strategy developed by the Indian Armed Forces for use in a possible war with Pakistan. It involves the various branches of India’s military conducting offensive operations as part of unified battle groups.
The Cold Start doctrine is intended to allow India’s conventional forces to perform holding attacks in order to prevent a nuclear retaliation from Pakistan in case of a conflict.
Its objective is to foster initiative and creative thinking and links theory, history, experimentation and practice.
The world says no to ‘Terrorism’ and is shoulder to shoulder with India!
The diversified Geo-political scenario of the worlds seems nodding at the same time on a very few occasions despite diverse strategic interests; India has found solidarity from the world majors:
America – cancelled bilateral talks with Pakistan at UN General Assembly and also to be noted that in US senate two congressmen have put up a bill for discussion stating Pakistan as a sponsor of terrorism and brand it a terror state in DC.
Russia – cancelled military exercises
Russia was scheduled to hold a joint drill with 200 military Russian and Pakistani personnel, called ‘Friendship 2016’,which had allegedly been called off in accordance to recent events.
The United Nations says no to Kashmir talks:
UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon ignored Pakistan’s requests to intervene in J&K
Afghanistan is suggests India to boycott SAARC
India has found support from Afghanistan in its diplomatic offense against Pakistan.
Bangladesh also might join the boycott against SAARC
Bangladesh also might participate in a boycott at the SAARC summit in Pakistan, to protest against state sponsored terrorism.
Today as Indian soldiers rushed into POK and attacked three militant training camps killing around 18-20 terrorists (as reported by quint). India definitely needs more than one strategic plan to tackle the problem, support from Russia and USA is a crucial constituent of any cardinal strategy that India makes. While it is imperative that china keeps a neutral point of view in this situation. Though India has always been known to be a peace loving nation Pakistan must know its limitations and stop sending terrorists across the LOC and also that our neighbor should remember consequences of its past attempts to be at war with the Indian army.
