Nu­clear Threat

Alive - - Letters -

This has ref­er­ence to your ed­i­to­rial Nu­clear Threats pub­lished in the Novem­ber edi­tion whether the threat of our Air Chief Marshal B.S. Dhanoa cre­ates a furore in the hearts of pow­ers-that-be of Pak­istan is not of much im­por­tance. Re­gard­ing nu­clear weapons both the neigh­bour­ing coun­tries must show ut­most re­straint even in mak­ing of­fi­cial state­ments like that of our Air Chief Marshal B.S. Dhanoa. Such bravado will not serve any pur­pose in the long run. We should not for­get that Pak­istan is a trou­ble­bear­ing coun­try in­fested with deadly ter­ror­ists and the no­to­ri­ous ISI. They will not hes­i­tate to avenge any threat from our side.

To keep the en­vi­ron­ment po­lit­i­cally sta­ble in the In­dian sub-con­ti­nent, politi­cians as well as mil­i­tary per­son­nel should re­strain them­selves from mak­ing sabre-rat­tling state­ments. How­ever there is no harm in mak­ing In­dia strong mil­i­tar­ily as well as keep­ing its nu­clear fa­cil­i­ties in readi­ness which will serve as a strong de­ter­rent against our war­mon­ger­ing neigh­bour.
