War is no good option, Pakistan is a born anti-India

Politics is no fair job, we all know this. A political party, which being in power had no daring to respond to the attacks of ill-behaving neighbors, is now claiming that the new Indian PM has just a 5.6 inches chest. The blame game continues, and so does Pak’s ill conduct at the border. What is the opposition party, or India’s common man expecting? I can hear many talking of responding to Pakistan with heavy weapons. Have we paid heed to a fact that Pak’s violation of ceasefire has abruptly amplified post the economy of India has shown signs of recovery? Let me remind you that the war of 1999 between India and Pakistan occurred in the months when India was about to elect a stable union government, after the loss of power due to lack of allies. From Obama to Bill Gates and from overseas investors to credit rating agencies, the world has unexpectedly become auspicious towards India. Believe it or not, Pakistan’s ideology has been and will always be ‘anti-India’, rather than ‘progressive-Pak’. The nation run by the army, which in no way seeks accord with India, is in fact an army with a state and not a state with army. 

Be certain. What does India want? A Prime Minister busy making war strategies or a PM planning for economic and social evolution, an army with casualties at the border or an armed force ensuring national peace, homes with toilets or houses with mortar marks? I am assured that every worthy Indian would pick opulence; leave aside those who make paybacks even by placing the nation at stake. Should the government care for those 1 million Indians who have relocated owing to violence at the border or shall the policy-makers devote all their time in fixing things with an ever-disobedient neighbor? I have just learnt that three kids go missing from the India Gate every day. Mentioning this is essential. Because resources are limited and will always be. Then why waste them until pressingly warranted? The new government has taken over a shattered economy, which demands devotion and tough labors. Moving resources towards anything like war would mean a recurrence of what happened in 1999. It is estimated that India expended INR 10,000 crore to teach a lesson to Pakistan in Kargil. Then we had loss of lives, property, and natural resources. Resorting to war as the last option is rational and favorable too. 

Coming to those who find yield in invoking tensed conditions. Men of the political party, that prior to May 2014 had the control, can easily be expected to follow the path they are pursuing. ‘Political mileage’, you can term it. But is the Indian electronic media on a way to nation-building? Discussions and arguments are now prime time shows, and the same are indispensable in a democracy. However, the thin line of demarcation between responsible and immature has to be identified. Arousing the sensation of patriotism can be workable notion, but allowing panelists to openly blame government’s stance cannot be endurable. TRPs of new channels even cross high-end TV dramas, then publicizing a message that would compel the common man to believe that the GOI is helpless while dealing with war-like conditions is unlawful. Healthy criticism of government’s viewpoint towards economic, social, or political domain is welcomed, but debating over a subject concerned with national security and integrity, and that too when the anchor or the so-called ‘intellectual panelists’ have nil pressure to take prudent decisions, is detrimental. In such a milieu, banning dialogues on matters related to Home, External Affairs, and Defence Ministry is the sole option since India’s supremacy is above freedom to speech. 

‘Coward’, they can term you if you do not bombard a missile in reply to a bullet. Seeing news and reading editorial is a stress-free job. But the elected government manages all spheres and is accountable for the subsequent gains/ damages. At one hand, when the poor of India are scuffling for apt medical and health services, can it be permissible to focus on ‘how to teach Pakistan a lesson for a lifetime’? Pak, where the democratic form of government has no vital role in framing foreign or security policies, is led either by a group of extremists or the army. Deviating India from the concrete pathway that leads to inclusive growth and stable economy seems to be the sole target. Shall India then go for something that can, in a second, ruin the rigid endeavors of the new PM? The cost of war does not end when the fight stops, it continues till decades. Building the crashed infrastructure, paying medical and disability costs to the wounded, and dealing with the pressure of lenders will take years to revert to balanced position. Are we ready for high interest rates, hefty tax burdens, lesser work prospects, and mounted budget deficit? A war is the death of many, depression for the survivors, and shock to financial deftness. 

Let us aspire for a wise verdict from the administrators of India, who I am sure, are far more concerned about the nation’s security than the ones aiming for ‘news-bites’. What the Home Minister has lately conveyed is enough for a neighbor who knows that Indian army and security forces rank way above. Pakistan is hurt with global attention towards India, which has been a concern for them since past six decades. Of course, when time warrants a war, every Indian will be the first to deliver national service. Until then, the citizens, corporate houses, and global partners expect India to pursue development. For the armed forces, the Defence Minister has well-ordered to strike back at the attacks to ‘make the cost of Pak’s adventurism unaffordable’, while officials anticipate a cutback in the unprovoked firing soon. The ‘no talks until such violations stop’ approach is the best, which the Indian rulers are already pursuing. As a piece of suggestion for the ‘worried opposition’ parties, understand that this subject involves India’s peace and global repute. Shouting merely for media coverage will serve no purpose, rather request PM for an all-party meet for a productive argument, or approach the Lok Sabha Speaker or the honorable President of India for the same. For media houses, India’s pride is way above your TRPs, stop being sensational and creating hypes, confusions, and threats. Indians, be assured that the Modi-led GOI will leave no stone unturned for India’s pride.

    Dear Dr Gupta,
    I wouldn’t agree less,than what you have mentioned. I think making India a stronger nation is better than war. Economic safe gaurd will help secure future of the country.
    And as far as Pakistan is concerned,they have no other option than to create tension in the area,as that’s their motive to get help from other islamic states .

    Dear Sir,
    There is a shaloka in Srimad Bhagwat Gita which loosely translated says that the person accepting injustice is as much at fault as the person doing injustice. For a nation to become economically strong it is all the more important for other nations to understand that it’s borders are
    There is another saying ” garib ki joru(wife) sab ki bhabhi (sister in law). Time for Pakistan authorities to realise that India of today is not garib and its joru(territory) is not Pakistan’s bhabhi.

    Pakistan tries to infiltrate militants using such techniques.
    This time they have crossed every limit.
    They are frustrated with stability in India.

    I think because the Sharif government is becoming weaker day by day,
    they want to distract the attention of international media to these attacks.

    Politicians will say that the present GOI is coward.
    But I don’t think Modi fears anyone.
    He will do what he thinks is right. No one can distract him.

    In India, people think from heart.
    If someone attacks we are ready to retaliate.
    But the country has to consider many other things.
    You are right that war has to be the last choice.

    Go and kill those militants in their homes. I want Indian army to conduct an operation like Osama was killed. Then attack all those terrorists who are disturbing India.

    Pakistan will never learn a lesson.
    They will get defeated but will rise again.
    This is in the blood of their rulers.
    They are into politics just for the sake of terrorism.

    India, focus on GDP and the condition of common man.
    Once this is done, we will be in a better stage to fight with them.
    Every Indian will participate, I am sure about this.

    Come on. Who says that news channels aggrevate things.
    They show the real story. They are the eye openers.
    Otherwise government can fool all of us.

    Some news channels know their duty, but some new players are hungry for sensation.
    I think print media is still much better. Internet news is horrible too.
