RAJ DALUJAJAMMU: It is time for India to call Pakistan bluff of nuclear threat, crush its body physique, cripple it economically and dismantle it geographically to avenge the bloodshed the rogue state unleashed across this country in general and Kashmir in particular in four full-fledged wars and during 30 years of proxy war. In its decisive fight against terror and territorial integrity, New Delhi should not care or bother about the powers that be across the globe that have always ignored India’s case against Pakistan despite pledge of global war to defeat terrorism? Remember that the world fears brave and not the cowards. India never lacked military strength; it was always betrayed by a firm political will. Now that the top trio of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah and Defence Minister Rajnath Singh are putting their act together in the second innings of NDA government, they must accomplishment the challenge by emulating Israel and act like Israel. Prime Minister Modi must not get bogged down by international pressure or the world opinion. He should recall what Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said years ago, “The world tells Israel ‘wait, there’s still time’. And I say, ‘Wait for what? Wait until when?’ Those in the international community who refuse to put red lines before ‘rogue nations’ (in this case referring to Iran) don’t have a moral right to place a red light before Israel.” Therefore, India must neither wait nor accept any red line as far as fighting radical Jihad and its mentor Pakistan is concerned. Pakistan and its terror factory is needed to be decimated, like India initiated by undertaking September-2016 LoC Surgical Strike, February-2019 Balakot Air Strike and October-2019 Pounding of Terror Camps in Krishna Ghati along Tanghdar Sector. By maintaining momentum in such strikes, Pakistan will forget its nuclear blackmail and come to terms. This will not only serve as psychological blow to Pakistan which has been flaunting of giving India thousand cuts but also set right her lackeys in Kashmir. This will also send a right signal to radicals having Jihadi mindset across India. A signal has already gone loud and clear to notorious Pakistan leadership that they can’t test the patience of India anymore. Enough is enough. They will have to behave or perish. Now that the Neelam Valley in Kupwara sector has warmed up, let New Delhi take its war against terrorism and perpetrator of Jihad to logical conclusion. It will be a befitting follow up to the constitutional measures taken in Jammu and Kashmir on August 5 to end ambiguities and uncertainties. Let the unfinished task of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel be accomplished fully after realizing the dream of Syama Prasad Mookherji of freeing Jammu and Kashmir of two constitutions and two flags. India has very bitter memories and experiences with the neighbor in its backyards. All along the past seven decades, Indians have erred in judging the psyche of Pakistan. In fact, they never showed any inclination to do so. As a result, the enemies within and across hollowed out the nation of a billion and quarter, ruthlessly and effortlessly. In the theatre of Jammu and Kashmir, though Indian army suffered minimum causalities in 1947 yet about 6,500 soldiers were killed in subsequent two wars-3000 in 1965, 3,500 in 1971 and 527 during Kargil incursion. However, according to conservative estimates, the proxy war and low key skirmishes have caused more fatalities than the wars. These have not ended. These continue to bleed India. New Delhi has never been steadfast in its Pakistan policy. It has been wavering. Pakistan has always mistaken as weakness Indian language of peace and restrain because this rogue country is used to a different treatment. Actually Pakistan knows the language the US has been using for the past several years. They understand pushes and punches which the US had been delivering in a good measure by carrying out drone attacks as per their will to defeat Afghan terror regime, enjoying safe haven besides moral, material and psychological support provided by Pakistan, the perpetrator of the global terrorism. If India has to survive as a self-respecting nation with people enjoying sense of security, it will have to neutralize Pakistan and Jihad, which is raising its ugly head in several manifestations. New Delhi should remember that by showing its prowess Israel has created required deterrence among its enemies like Palestine, Syria, Yemen, Lebanon, Libya, Oman, Iran and other Muslim countries, which have voluminous population, whopping resources and powerful exchequer compared to Israel. However it is the political will that Israel has in abundant measure that remains dominant factor. India too should and is perhaps emulating the strong political will to take on Pakistan. Remember, it is the brave which world fears.
