Description

This book presents an incisive analysis of the trends and prospects of Pakistan’s proxy war and its wider ramifications. Specific recommendations focus on the pro-active military measures that are necessary to regain control, over the vitiated security situation and restore normalcy.

For over a decade, Pakistan has been waging a proxy war against India in Jammu and Kashmir in keeping with its strategy of bleeding India through a thousand cuts. It recruits, trains, arms and equips mercenary terrorists and multinational fedayeen suicide squads and helps them to infiltrate across the LoC into Kashmir. In Afghanistan too, Pakistan has been engaged in a jehad through its virulently Islamist protégé, the Taliban. Post-September 11, the Pakistan government continued to permit Islamist fundamentalist terrorist organizations to operate openly from its territory, even as it professed to have abjured state-sponsored terrorism while joining the international coalition against terror.

The author, a scholar warrior, has highlighted the long-term repercussions of military rule in Pakistan, exposed the malicious mullah-narcotics smuggler-army-police-criminal-civilian nexus and examined the impact of Pakistan’s ominous shadow over peace in Kashmir.
