War or peace: Choices before Delhi after Pathankot

Sat, Jan 02, 2016, 04:16 PM
After 26/11 Mumbai attack by Pakistan-based terrorists, there was an iron curtain for a long time between India and Pakistan. Restless Pakistan then opened border firing. When India retaliated with greater force, Pakistani Army guns fell silent.

The latest attack on Pathankot airbase is aimed at nipping in the bud any move to normalise the relations, according to Indian security agencies.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi had resolved to fight relentlessly against terror when he came to power one-and-a-half years ago. He also said normalising relations with neighbours was also on his agenda.

During the Paris Climate Summit, Modi had talks with his Pakistani counterpart on the sidelines of the summit. They had also embraced. Immediately, there were hopes of better relations on many fronts.

Soon National Security Advisers of both the countries had back channel talks in Bangkok. External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj visited Pakistan for 2 days recently. Surprising everyone, Modi had landed in Lahore while returning from his Russia visit. He greeted Sharif on his birthday, which coincided with his grand-dauther's wedding. On January 15, the Foreign Secretaries of both the countries were to meet to continue the normalisation process.

This was too much of peace to the snake-headed Pakistan. One head talks peace. The other headed by Pakistani Army that could never accept the 1971 defeat in Bangladesh where East Pakistan was torn apart by India, along with the cloak-and-dagger Inter-Services Intelligence, struck at the peace process. Pathankot airbase attack was engineered by the Pakistani Army and ISI through Jaish-e-Mohammad.

The proof is the four calls made by the Pakistani terrorists talking back to their controllers in Pakistan that have been monitored by Indian intelligence.

With enough evidence, how will India confront Pakistan? With war or peace, the evening meeting headed by the Prime Minister will tell.

If Indian intelligence is strong enough, there can be other choices. For instance, like attacks on Pakistan so it will come round to know what terror is all about. If force meets with force, terror meets with terror.
It can hardly be a political decision, it has to be an intelligence one, bar the shouting.
