Symptoms need to be addressed through smaller battles that are part of a bigger war against this enemy.
A nation mourns being left utter helpless by the system. It’s the aspirations and ambitions of a growing nation that demands appropriate and adequate response. The recent murder of 44 Jawans of CRPF and 5 Jawans of the Indian army has forced people to come out in the streets with deep anguish and expectations from the state apparatus. A small and poor country like Pakistan can freely operate in India and the world’s 3rd largest economy seems helpless.
India has nothing to achieve because it is the only secular country. They are ashamed to call themselves Hindu nation despite them having world’s 80% Hindu population
Apparently and obviously so the people of India are frustrated, ashamed and totally flustered because they don’t see any visible action from a clueless government. The empty talks of vows and promises of action against perpetrators is still a promise in future just like a post-dated check with no funds in the bank account. The system is exposed to people now. Everyone knows that there is no national security policy or process that can act immediately against the perpetrators of these types of heinous and criminal acts. Empty promises by top politicians are already making things worse. People are also beginning to question the huge military expenditure on Indian armed forces.
Today people are demanding action against the enemy. Who is the enemy? This is pertinent in today’s times. Without that definition, any war cannot be fought. Attacks like these have been going on against Indian Security forces since the last 1000 years. Same ideology, similar people, only faces have changed and a new name for the region has emerged that is Pakistan. But is Pakistan the only problem? Pakistan, Bangladesh are just symptoms, the disease is something else.
In India also, Mallapuram, West Bengal are seeing symptoms. How long will Indians continue to react to symptoms? At sometime Indian strategists have to wage a long term war against the disease, not symptoms. Symptoms need to be addressed through smaller battles that are part of a bigger war against this enemy. The enemy of India is an ideology from Arab lands. Their call for war against India is call ghazwa-e-hind. Indian strategists have failed to come up with a long term strategy to defend Indian interests and Indian aspirations from these criminal minded war mongers.
The enemy is not one nation but a collective group of nations with similar ideology. The enemy is also sitting in India and being protected in the name of Secularism. Only Hindus are expected to be seculars, and that is also the strategy of the enemy of India. Media of India is controlled by these enemies. The war has to be simultaneously fought at multiple levels – media, Indian legal system, the International legal system, Indian Parliament, UN, Social Media, Intelligence and Proactive Foreign Military Operations. Is India ready?
Why do these attacks happen continuously? Because Indian administrators and policy-makers have failed India on 3 counts.
- Decisive Military Action
One, There are no national strategic objectives of India as a nation. In today’s Infowars, ideology plays an important role in formulating a strategy. The USA has a Judeo-Christian strategic objective to achieve. Israel has Jewish objectives to achieve. Islamic countries have Islamic strategic objectives. Probably, India has nothing to achieve because it is the only secular country. They are ashamed to call themselves Hindu nation despite them having world’s 80% Hindu population.
If India as a country has to succeed then, it must first define its enemy and then must be prepared to take decisive military action against its enemies both inside and outside.
Without identity, there cannot be any strategy, definition of the enemy, strategic objectives and goals. What is India protecting from whom? Who does India serve? Secularism, self-imposed and imposed by others on India has made India hollow. For India to succeed, Indian policymakers have to proudly accept the fact that they are protecting Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Jainism and all other original ideologies from India. Indian culture and Indian faith have to be protected and that should become the strategic objective for India. India cannot adopt foreign faiths as its culture because they compete with Indian faiths. Secularism and Globalism are dead and failed. No country is secular except India today.
Two, Decisive Military Action brings respect to a nation. India needs to make wars against its enemies as a constant feature of its national policy. There must be constant almost daily campaigns executed to weaken the enemy in their own lands. India must wage wars within Pakistan, Saudi Arabia or any other hostile nations. The USA has successfully executed it and has gotten rich dividends for doing it. India needs to shed its self imposed tag of a peaceful nation and has never initiated wars because India was under foreign rule for almost 1500 years. They were destroyed by Islamists, Christians and other looters.
In Mahabharat, Narada advises Yudhishthir to constantly wage war against enemies as statecraft. Even Chanakya advised Chandragupta Maurya to constantly defeat Yavan forces. Indian history is filled with examples where Indians have initiated decisive wars. Decisive Military Action has to be part of regular state strategy against all enemies of the state. To meet the aspirations of Indian people, the Indian government has to initiate wars outside India or be ready for another round of slavery. War has to be fought in enemy territory. I don’t know, what stops the world’s 2nd largest army to wage a war against this enemy. There is no functioning intelligence system that can win decisively for India. India has to initiate many of these wars using their large armed forces in the enemy territory. That brings me to the third point. Are Indian politicians prepared?
Three, Indian Polity has not yet grasped the seriousness of threats. They seem to be disconnected from expectations from an ambitious nation. Indian Polity has to openly apply their minds to study the enemy and learn from their history to come up with an appropriate strategy. The upcoming war is for the soul of India and Indian Polity has to be ready to take this challenge head-on. Indian polity has the strength to face this challenge provided they act on it. They have always taken moral high ground which is right in times of peace. But in war, Indian polity has to take decisions taking a perspective of ground realities. India as a nation cannot become the prisoner of high morality of some politicians.
The world over India is today being mocked for its political indecisiveness and weak political posturing despite the popularity of its PM. Indian Polity has to adopt measures for rapidly producing indigenous weapons and use them when necessary. History is a great teacher and recent Indian history from the last 600 years should wake them up. Dr Subramanian Swamy, a leading Indian Parliamentarian, has spoken in Indian parliament about the need to proactively sending troops to Afghanistan, Breaking Pakistan into 4 parts, and proactively countering the enemies. That is the right way to take the war into enemy territory. The enemy must feel the pain. This is not a hawkish approach because India has been looted far too many times by foreign invaders in the name of faith or in the name of profit. Indian culture needs to be protected by Indian polity. The pro
If India as a country has to succeed then, it must first define its enemy and then must be prepared to take decisive military action against its enemies both inside and outside. According to Chanakya Rishi, the enemies should never sleep peacefully. Narada also advises this to Yudhishthir in Mahabharat. India has everything to take this war head-on and her people eagerly look up to their political leadership to give them justice. It’s time for difficult and hard decisions. This is the fight to protect the soul of India from invaders. Jai Hind!
