The army brass had decided in principle that preparations will be completed from 2010 to 2011 for an operation in North Waziristan which will kick off the same year

Gen Kayani thought he would be held accountable for sending troops into North Waziristan. And that is why he dilly-dallied on the operation due to which we wasted too much time and suffered losses

Athar Abbas (Former Military Spokesperson)

The country, its people, the government and the armed forces had to pay a heavy price for Gen Kayani’s hesitance.

What we see as a concern is an over-involvement of Indians in Afghanistan that becomes a concern

Athar Abbas (Former Military Spokesperson)

We keep talking, we keep informing them that these are our concerns

Athar Abbas (Former Military Spokesperson)

The states do not disclose their options also, but there are options of how far you can go in supporting the coalition there.

The valour displayed by Kumaunis of 3 Kumaon Rifles and Kumaon Regiment in battles right from the first World War to those fought in the post-independence era bears testimony to their exemplary contribution in securing the country’s borders

Since the deep state in Pakistan was not willing to seize the hand of friendship extended by the Modi government, the latter has shown that it can display the will to respond in other ways too.

The surgical strikes were necessary and they were meaningless without political ownership. It will create a dilemma for Pakistan and force a rethink on the “threshold strategy” it follows.

Well, people read my name and it helps in the first meeting, but Kashmiris are very analytical.

I also benefit from my understanding of religion as a strategic weapon. And, I greatly benefit from my relationships with many people who I have known from past tenures, both civilians and in the administration.

The incidents at Keran have been dubbed as “Kargil II” by the media and the perceived delay by the Indian Army in pushing back the intrusions led to many screaming headlines. But there is no need to go hyper. This was never Kargil II.
