South Asia's Terror Link
If the Islamic State and Pakistan’s ISI join hands, global jihad led by ISIS and fully supported logistically by ISI will be at our doorstep. India has to prepare itself to meet this threat, writes Brig Anil Gupta for South Asia Monitor.  
 

The Pakistani narrative, which had shifted from state-sponsored terror to rogue non-state actors’ post 26/11, is now devolving on self-radicalised individuals acting singly or collectively on their own accord, writes Monish Gulati for South Asia Monitor.

 

If India were not aiming so high, it would have taken military advantage of Pakistan's tough war on the western front years ago. Capitalising on your enemy's weakness is common sense after all

 

India must not fall for the Israel model that calls for forced response to every attack. Just the intent to escalate should be established to daunt cross-border terror

 

Pakistan is testing India’s response to terror, first in Gurdaspur and now Udhampur. Why is that ‘befitting reply’ so long in coming?

 

Wednesday’s terror strike in Udhampur by militants from Pakistan was clearly aimed at provoking India. It came barely 10 days after a police station in Gurdaspur in Punjab was attacked, again by militants from Pakistan.

 

Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Thursday condemned the Udhampur terror attack and termed it an attempt by Pakistan to destabilise peace in Jammu and Kashmir.
