Fault Lines: Writings on Conflict and Resolution (Vol. 9)

K.P.S. Gill (Author) Ajai Sahni (Author)
Synopsis The uncritical hysteria of expectations and the almost delusional character of ‘analyses’ that dominates media reportage on ‘peace initiatives’ pushes the ground realities of internal conflicts into the far background. We thus have the repeated experience of a comprehensive failure on the part of the political establishment to accommodate the complex and destructive dynamic of fragmented and unimaginative state responses confronting the endless flexibility of constantly mutating terrorist organizations and their supporters. This volume is an effort to restore a certain measure of balance in the perspectives on various conflicts in India that are arbitrarily and repeatedly destabilized by apparently well-intentioned but ill-conceived policy initiatives.

Gill led the war against terrorism in Punjab during his tenure as Director General of Police, and it was under his direction that the movement for Khalistan was finally and comprehensively defeated. He is credited with radical strategic innovations in counter-terrorist operations, and an extraordinary understanding of the psyche of the people of Punjab, which contributed directly to what was, after he took over, a remarkably swift operation and a decisive victory. An officer of the Indian Police Service (1957 Batch) from the Assam cadre, he had already tackled terrorism and political turbulence in North-East during his tenure spanning over 25 years in the region.
