outside an airbase in Pathankot India Monday Jan 4 2016 After saying all the gunmen who attacked the Indian airbase near the Pakistan border were dead (Source: AP) Related News What happened in Pathankot was an act of war against India but almost nobody has said this so far I listened carefully to prime time debates in which security experts held forth in ponderous sentences and I read all the editorials on the attack in search of someone who would say clearly that Pakistan was at war with India But nobody did We defile the memory of the men who died defending the Air Force base when we continue to use the word ‘terrorism’ to describe the attack And India will continue to be attacked in this way if all that our experts can do is talk about strengthening counter-terrorism Jihadi terrorism is the biggest threat to civilization as we know it but what we saw in Pathankot last week cannot be dismissed as just another act of jihadi terrorism It is clear from cell phone intercepts that the handlers in Pakistan were senior leaders of the Jaish-e-Mohammad This organisation of violent fanatics was spawned by the Pakistani army with the specific purpose of waging an insidious cowardly war against India It is the sister of Lashkar-e-Taiba whose Islamist foot soldiers were responsible for 26/11 and like that time this time too there were identifiable handlers in Pakistan So if we want to continue talking to Pakistan and we should then is it not time that it was General Raheel Sharif we talked to instead of poor hapless Nawaz Sharif We should know by now that elected governments in Pakistan do not control foreign policy but we continue to pretend otherwise It is because of this pretence that Pakistan seems to be winning this ugly war The Pakistani army has seen India as an ‘existential threat’ ever since Pakistan came into being It is to destroy this alleged existential threat that Pakistani Generals have devised their main military strategies After discovering in Kargil that a conventional war was impossible to win the strategy changed to another kind of war Somehow in all this time our own security agencies have continued to talk of terrorism and not war The result is that our defence strategy seems to fall time and again between two stools As someone who lives in Mumbai within walking distance of the hotels restaurant railway station and other places that came under attack eight years ago I can report that they are as vulnerable today as they were on 26/11 Coastal security is in even worse shape All that has changed is that a handful of poorly trained unarmed guards have been posted here and there They sit around sleepily on most days and when there is a ‘high alert’ conduct random checks This is not how we will win a war being waged on us by an enemy who sees India as an ‘existential threat’ What is most frightening is that we have learned almost nothing from past mistakes The leader of Jaish-e-Mohammad Maulana Masood Azhar was among the men we released in exchange for the passengers of IC 814 more than fifteen years ago He was in Indian custody for five years before his release because the Indian justice system works at bullock cart pace After his release he wrote a memoir filled with contempt for India before organising the attack on our Parliament Why is he still a free man in Pakistan Where are the other terrorists who were released with him Why is Hafiz Saeed still wandering about spewing hatred against India at huge public rallies Is there any point in speaking to Pakistan’s prime minister if he continues to be incapable of answering these questions So is it not time for more meaningful engagement with the Islamic Republic next door As happens in times of war should we not be speaking to military men instead of civilians And as would happen in wartime should we not be going more aggressively after the groups responsible for conducting acts of war on Indian soil Speaking as an ordinary Indian citizen may I say that I would like very much to see more aggression in not just the manner in which we speak to Pakistan in future but more aggression in the way we defend ourselves against a country that is increasingly becoming an ‘existential threat’ to India Too many men have laid down their lives trying to keep us safe from an aggressor that is too cowardly to fight a real war So the question is not whether our foreign secretaries should meet next week or the week after The question is when should our military secretaries meet to have a more meaningful conversation about military matters A new kind of engagement with Pakistan is long long overdue as is a new strategy on India’s part to deal more robustly with this ugly undeclared war that has gone on too long Twitter: @

and ran through the Aussie middle-order in the first innings returning with four wickets He has had been pretty consistent with the Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL and was rewarded for his skill and talent The decision to rest Rohit and Bumrah however appears a little surprising However captain Virat Kohli put things into perspective when he said “ Rohit has come back and had a full IPL season which was very hectic His side reached the final and he hardly got any rest Plus he had a massive hip surgery and the muscles around that area are always vulnerable and today also he experienced stiffness in his right knee So we have taken a decision to rest him Going forward we need to protect him as we have big tours coming up towards the latter half of the year” The Champions Trophy is

Prime Minister Indira Gandhi unilaterally had declared a state of shutdown across the country “I did have an idea but the shoot went by so smoothly that I didn’t realise it For me it is just a film a story we are trying to tell “I sort of expected this but at the same time I didn’t know what the experience would be like I know Madhur is absolutely capable and experienced in handling these things I am not worried” Kirti said The movie is facing wrath of the politicians with Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam recently demanding to screen the film before it goes to censor board with concerns over the portrayal of party bigwigs like Indira Sanjay Gandhi and other senior leaders of the Indian National Congress in it The actor says it is “unfortunate” that people get offended easily despite all attempts to appease them”It is very tough There are so many peopleorganisations parities religions Whatever you try someone or the other will be offended It’s really unfortunate it shouldn’t happen” Kirti plays the titular role of a poetess in the filmwho has a speech problem and the 32-year-old actor says being consistent with the stammer was a challenge for her “Stammering is a very important part of the character I didn’t have a therapist on sets to guide me if I was doing it the right way I had to be my own judge… I shot the film with all the stammering then did the dubbing That’s where the therapist came in It was a very exhausting process maintaining the consistency was the biggest challenge Not once it should look like we are overdoing it or making fun It had to be organic” said the Pink actor Indu Sarkar is Kirti’s first film post her last release Pink and she hopes that people who stammer would like her performance “What I am really nervous about is what if people who stammer in real life come and say ‘no this is not how it happens’” she says The film is scheduled to release on July 28 For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App More Related
