Uri Attacks: Actions Will Speak Louder Than Condemnation

With the Uri attack, the vulnerabilities have been exposed yet again as far as our preparedness and call to action post intel inputs is concerned. 17 of our brave-hearts were martyred in a jiffy and all we have managed so far is the verbal diarrhoea of surgical strikes and political blame-game.

From Hiranagar in 2013 to Pathankot in 2015, our jawans have been caught like sitting ducks and every time the series of condemnation and call to revenge gains momentum but very little seems to be reflected in terms of our preparedness to thwart such attacks. No wonder we have become a laughing stock among the bunch of jihadis who seem to be always a step ahead.

There’s no doubt that the Hon’ble PM has been open and daring to lend a hand of friendship to the neighbours but the military establishment and ISI has continued to backstab the efforts of peace from India, Nawaz is obviously a stooge as evident from the prevailing scenario. The recent calls for isolation of Pakistan haven’t been fruitful yet, US might support India’s stand but behind closed doors it is a different story altogether (US Senate passed $800m fund for Pakistan in June this year).

National Security Adviser Ajit Doval’s call to “liberate” Balochistan for another 26/11 like attack might not be the next best option but the NSA surely can pull up the officials at the helm responsible for our homeland security. There has to be ACTION without much media blitzkrieg. When US took down Osama bin Laden within Pakistani territory, some of our leaders felt we could do the same with Dawood. Had we actually done that instead of drum-beating about it, the situation might have been bit different. Every action has an equal and opposite reaction but there has to be a 360° analysis and rapid implementation to counter all probable attacks like the one in Uri. Perhaps we could turn to our close ally Israel for some tutorials. The revival of Gen. VK Singh’s Technical Services Division might be an option that could be explored.

Pakistan is surely rattled by PM Modi’s “B” Plan (read Balochistan), but if we can’t secure our own jawans and strategic areas, the so-called plan to liberate Balochistan (as some argue, though it will come with its own baggage if India decides to venture into that path) will be like promising the Moon. If our leaders propagate isolation of Pakistan, then the path must be taken and high-levels meetings shouldn’t be called for only post the aftermath of attacks like Uri, but hard action without chest thumping is what India needs to not let our heroes down and pay respect to the martyrs.
