Hamid Gul, the Man Who Conceived Zia’s Strategy Of A ‘Thousand Cuts’, who Made Islamist Radicalism the Core of Pakistan’s India Strategy and Its Proxy War
Hamid Gul

Faith will probably remain wedded to Pakistan Army’s way of war. Yet secretly most Pakistani citizens aspiring for return of peace would be hoping that no more personalities such as Hamid Gul ever rise in Pakistan’s bleak political and military landscape. With the threat of the Islamic State looming in Afghanistan it won’t be long before Pakistan is hit by this wave. The only way to avoid the approaching implosion of Pakistan is to set it on a path of moderate faith and low militarization.....


Pakistan without Partition: Let's Revive the Buried Idea of Indo-Pak Confederation
Sudheendra Kulkarni

The idea of an India-Pakistan Confederation (which in today's context should also include Bangladesh) may seem far-fetched, even thoroughly impractical given the unremitting mistrust and hostility between our two countries. However, as the two South Asian neighbours celebrate the 68th anniversary of their independence from British rule -- a joyous occasion that was accompanied by the horrific Partition-induced communal bloodbath -- it is useful to remember that some sort of India-Pakistan federation or confederation was a distinct possibility when the British left our subcontinent. Jinnah's Lahore Resolution (1940) had the seed of a confederation.....

No Place For Casteism And Communalism In The Country, says Indian PM Narendra Modi in his I-Day Speech
Indian PM Narendra Modi

Modi repeatedly referred to the central role of the country’s one billion-plus population – which he dubbed “Team India” – in his government’s development plans, saying the people alone will take India to new heights.

The Prime Minister, who has often been criticised for his silence on attacks on minorities by leaders of the BJP and the Sangh Parivar, said there was no place for casteism and communalism in the country....

Gandhi on Religion, Cow and Caste — III
Justice Markandey Katju

As regards the claim that Gandhi gave us freedom, this again is a myth. Does any country give up its empire without an armed fight for independence? Did the US get independence from the British through Satyagrah and hunger strikes, or by mobilising the Continental Army under George Washington, which fought the US war of Independence from 1775 to 1781? Did Bolivar liberate several Latin-American countries with guns or presenting flowers and bouquets to Spanish rulers? Did Ho Chi Minh defeat the French by use of arms or by salt marches?...

Gandhi on Religion, Cow and Caste — Part I and II
Justice Markandey Katju

Now, if one were a Sadhu or saint sitting in an ashram (hermitage), one can say anything. But when one enters politics and says such things in public political meetings, what effect will it have on a conservative Muslim mind? Will it not drive Muslims towards an organisation like the Muslim League? And did this not serve the British policy of divide and rule, therefore making Gandhi objectively a British agent? India is a country with tremendous diversity. Even today, some 18 percent of its population is Muslim. Before 1947, the percentage of Muslims would have been about 25 percent.. ...

How The Pakistani, Zaid Hamid,  Who Gained A Wide Following In Pakistan, Predicting A ‘Ghazwa’ To Trounce And Enslave India, Ended Up In A Saudi Prison
Syed Zaid Zaman Hamid

Nobody knows what the truth is but one Pakistani, Zaid Hamid, is said to have been nabbed in Saudi Arabia during a minor pilgrimage and condemned to eight years in jail and 1,000 lashes — bunched in weekly instalments — for badmouthing the kingdom of Saudi Arabia. If you go on the internet, the man is “Syed Zaid Zaman Hamid, founding president of an internationally recognised threat analysis consultancy and defence think tank, Brass Tacks”. He was once popular on TV talk shows in Pakistan....

With the coming of the ISIS things have changed. Now, India potentially confronts a new crop of educated and techno-savvy Jihadis with a global and millenarian outlook. As the Biswas case illustrates, these operators may have extensive and direct links with various international terror organizations, and maybe wired up for conducting real time operations in the most advanced forms of asymmetric warfare. Some of them may even be disaffiliated lone-wolf operators, or non-Muslim anti-national groups benefitting from the terrorist training available on the Internet. There is also the possibility of at least some Indian ISIS members, having real battlefield experience in foreign lands,....
