Time for a decisive strike on Pakistan: Former R&AW official
It is time for a decisive strike on Pakistan in the wake of the country deciding to hang Kulbhushan Jadhav says former officer with the Research and Analysis Wing, Amar Bhushan. He tells OneIndia that the options before India are very limited, but the better thing to do would be to send across a strong message through a decisive strike.
Pakistan normally does not care for world pressure. When they hanged Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, there was a lot of international pressure, but that did not deter them. I think when the Ministry for External Affairs says that they would treat this case as premeditated murder, it is a very balanced approach.
India must take up the matter before the United Nations and also ask for independent observers. Pakistan is a rogue nation and only understands the language of guns. They have been trigger happy people who kill dozens of innocents in Balochistan, Bhushan says.
Bhushan says that India will either have to strike hard or get the international community to act. Relying on China is not an option though. China would only say that this is Pakistan's internal matter. I also feel that the matter should be raised with the Pakistan Prime Minister, Nawaz Sharif. I am however not very hopeful that the Pakistan PM will be of any held considering how powerful the army in Pakistan is, Bhushan further adds.
