On 14 the February, 2019 a local radicalized Kashmiri
youth Suicide bomber terrorist having links with JEM (Jaish-e-Mohammad) of
Pakistan struck at Pulwama , Kashmir
,killing 40 Indian security forces instantly. Thus causing a biggest ever loss
of lives in the three decade old militancy in Kashmir .
A very sight of the body bags calls for remorse ,anger
To gauge the background of Jaish –e- Mohammad it is
imperative to recall the implications of the rude shock of releasing Masood Azhar, the prized terrorist in January 2000 along with other two
terrorists in exchange for passengers and crew of hijacked Flight IC184,from
Kathmandu to Kandhar.
The eight day hostage of the passengers was a saga full of agony and more painful to see
India’s external Affairs minister , Jaswant
singh escorting Masood Azhar and two
others to Kabul .
The same Jaish-e-Mohammad has claimed responsibility
for Pulwama bombing.
The anger is against Pakistan in the firs place aiding
and abetting the terrorist acts against India and secondly against
radicalized local Kashmiri terrorists
for executing such heinous crimes at the behest of the Pakistan masters.
We need to be aware that every Kashmiri is not
terrorist and not pay heed to the bigoted politicians who vitiate the atmosphere by spreading
hatred and inciting for violence against one and all.
Minister Narender Modi had assured the nation that the Pulwama attack will be
retaliated and with much severity this time.
2016 when Army camp was assaulted by terrorists who infiltrated from
Pakistan into Uri sector in kashmir, Indian
army carried a targeted surgical counter attack.
Pakistan and ISI has been attacking rather bleeding
India especially in Kashmir for last nearly three decades .
The surge in militancy in Kashmir in recent years have
reached its zenith. The aggressive Islamist radicalization among educated younger
generation is a matter of concern .and needs immediate redressal.
Insurgency related deaths have risen alarmingly in
The number of local recruits have been on the upswing

After Pulwama holocaust as evident in the melee of anger and vendetta, traders and students of Kashmir valley were brazenly attacked in Jammu and other cities of the country. The students were thrown out of the hostels . In the process of rage and rancor many innocent people got harmed
Again our PM Modiji’s assertion “not to harm any
Kashmiri as the war is against terrorists and not against kashmiris “ brought
some sanity among the hoodlums across the country.
Now after nearly 11 days of Pulwama attack,
The act of retaliation
has shown to all in India and outside that India continues to be a strong
composite nation to combat any eventuality on its own .
in the wee
hours of the morning of 26th
February 2019 twelve IAF Mirages 2000 attacked the terrorist camps in Balakote in
Pakistan occupied Kashmir eliminating the Jaish-e-Mohammed training camps,
thereby inflicting heavy casualities upon the terrorists, as per the statement
of India’s Foreign Secretary Mr Vijay Gokhale. He further said a pre emptive
strike was “ absolutely necessary” to
prevent further more attacks on our strategic military installations.
Narender Modi has demonstrated he being
a steadfast leader could not dither on taking such a resolute action.
In the past we have
fought two full fledged wars with Pakistan1965 and 1971 and defeated
Pakistan both times.
In 1971, the defeat was colossal.Indira Gandhi ,a determined strong willed leader dismembered
Pakistan into Bangladesh and Pakistan with 90,000 Pakistani soldiers
surrendering to Indian Army. The stature of India had zoomed to great heights
in the comity of world nations.
Day after IAF struck and
eliminated the terrorist camps in Balakote, Pakistan air force(PAF) three F-16s violated Indian air space in J&K on wednesday
morning(27/2/19) in Nowshera and Krishna Ghati sectors of Poonch and Rajouri
Districts tagetted the military installations with bombs, Indian two MIG 21
Bison chased the pakistani aircrafts and
in fact shot down one F-16 and it was spotted in Lam valley 3 kms inside Pakistan territory. Pakistan shot down one MIG21Bison and captured wing commander
Currently Wing Commander
Abhinandan is in the Pakistan Army custody.
A few videos of the pilot emerged
on social media. One showed him struggling to defend himself from the outrage
of a mob in plainclothes in the middle of a forest, another showed him
answering questions from Pakistani security forces.
and Pakistan have not been able to live like good neighbours from the day one and
several wars were fought over Kashmir
without recourse to any permanent resolution to the contagious conflict.
in view of the aftermath of non military pre –emptive strike at
Balakot by India following Jaish –e-Mohammad attack in Pulwama ,
capturing of IAF pilot by Pakistan,thus escalating the conflict between two
nuclear armed neighbours high and definitely veering towards another possible
It is heartening to see the political class across party lines
have conducted itself with sense of responsibility .
On the other hand our television studio warriors are
indulging in irresponsible war mongerings. One is aghast to watch at
paranoid crowds indulging into jingoism rather than a sensible support for the authority to take
right decision in the hour of crisis looming large over the country.
The people living on the borders of India,and in the states like Punjab,J&K, Rajasthan
,Gujrat ,facing direct impact of war, understand it better than those living
thousands of miles away from the boom of guns, air strikes and the loss of
lives and the miseries it bring along with.
For instance in 1965 war , I was reading in College and we were
living in the close vicinity of
Indian Military concentration camp in
‘ChandMari’ just two kms away from our
residence in Srinagar city. The guns boomed throughout day and night .The large
number of infiltrators had sneaked in Kashmir and infiltrators were fighting in
“Chand Mari” and elsewhere in the
city. Indian Army finally flushed out thousands of infiltrators with help of
local Kashmiris. We were dying every day seeing the bullets zooming over our
we have faced the trauma of war and fully aware of its disastrous consequences.
There will be some steps to be taken as follows.
Firstly we must help the Govt
to bring back the wing Commander Abhinandan safe and sound .
Secondly the Govt of India should try other options like using
diplomatic channels to put pressure on the world leaders and UNO to punish
Pakistan for nurturing militants on their soil to settle scores with India .
Thirdly India is a large democracy and we must try all options before embarking
upon a full fledged war bound to bring miseries to the teeming millions for no
fault of theirs.
The decision needs to be taken with sobriety and in a cool
headed state of mind not by flashy muscles .
