Pakistan's Proxy War

Gurmeet Kanwal (Author)
Synopsis For over a decade, Pakistan has been waging a ‘proxy war’ against India in Jammu and Kashmir in keeping with its strategy of bleeding India through a thousand cuts. It recruits, trains, arms and equips mercenary terrorists and multinational fedayeen suicide squads and helps them to infiltrate across the LoC into Kashmir. In Afghanistan too, Pakistan has been engaged in a jehad through its virulently Islamist prot?g?, the Taliban. Post-September 11, the Pakistan government continued to permit Islamist fundamentalist terrorist organisations to operate openly from its territory, even as it professed to have abjured state-sponsored terrorism while joining the international coalition against terror. This book presents an incisive analysis of the trends and prospects of Pakistan’s proxy war and its wider ramifications. Specific recommendations focus on the pro-active military measures that are necessary to regain control over the vitiated security situation and restore normalcy, even as the civil administration concentrates on winning the battle of hearts and minds. The author, a scholar-warrior, has highlighted the long-term repercussions of military rule in Pakistan, exposed the malicious mullah-narcotics smuggler-army-police-criminal-civilian nexus and examined the impact of Pakistan’s ominous shadow over peace in Kashmir.
