Pak targets Lashkar, Jaish with 'intelligence-based ops'

Operation Radd-ul-Fasaad launched to fight terrorism across country, reports Ajai Shukla. Even those sceptical of Pakistan's insistence that it is cracking down on jihadists of every hue are now admitting that something has clearly changed from the days when only token action would be taken against 'India-focussed' groups. On Wednesday evening, the Pakistan army announced it had launched Operation Radd-ul-Fasaad across the country. This includes counter-terrorism operations, aimed at ... Rediff.com, 2 months ago

Will Saeed's arrest keep Pakistan off Trump's no-entry list?

This is the first time the Pakistan army has publicly backed the arrest of India-focused jihadis, says Ajai Shukla. A day after Pakistan's government arrested Muhammad Saeed, the chief of the banned Lashkar-e-Tayiba, along with four associates and issued orders against the Jamaat-ud-Dawa and its humanitarian aid front, the Falah-e-Insaniyet Foundation, the Pakistani street is abuzz with speculation about what motivated this crackdown.

Will 'Delhi Karmapa' lose acceptance after marriage?

In the long-running rivalry between the 'Delhi Karmapa' and the 'Chinese Karmapa', the latter seems to have won. Ajai Shukla reports. India's play in Tibetan religious politics has always been a high stakes game. India’s grant of refuge to the 14th Dalai Lama in 1959 led to the 1962 war with China; and tensions between New Delhi and Beijing continue over the iconic Tibetan leader’s ‘splittist’ (separatist) activities, allegedly masterminded from India. With the ...

Can India take out Pakistan's nukes?

Serious question marks remain over how effectively, or whether at all, India can actually execute a disarming CF strike that takes out most of Pakistan’s nukes, says Ajai Shukla.  Former national security advisor Shivshankar Menon has shed new light on an especially worrying aspect of India’s nuclear doctrine -- New Delhi’s barely credible promise of automatic, ‘massive’ nuclear retaliation against any adversary that targets India, or Indian forces anywhere, ...

Why Dalai Lama's Tawang visit rattles China

Beijing is clearly rattled by the Dalai Lama's visit. Unlike the 2009 visit, which was a four-day religious tour, the current visit is a high-decibel, 10-day affair, without the fig leaf of a "religious event", reports Ajai Shukla. The first time the Dalai Lama came to the Tawang tract of Arunachal Pradesh in 1959, he was fleeing Mao Tse-tung's Red Army after Lhasa and its surroundings had exploded in revolution against communist oppression. New Delhi's role in the Dalai Lama's perilous flight ...

Three years after Modi rattled DRDO, little has changed

In 2014, the prime minister criticised the communication gap between DRDO scientists, who remained ensconced in their laboratories, and the soldiers on the borders, says Ajai Shukla.   In 2014, when Prime Minister Narendra Modi attended the annual awards ceremony of the Defence Research and Development Organisation, he jolted the self-congratulatory annual function by insisting on timely delivery and innovation. Criticising what he termed the DRDO's 'chalta hai' (lackadaisical) attitude, ...
