Pakistan backed Insurgency was defeated Indian Punjab

Reader comment on item: Must Counterinsurgency Wars Fail?

Submitted by Singha (India), Sep 14, 2008 at 22:51

Sikhs are a group set up by Hindus in Punjab, India to fight islamic terrorism and its syamese twin islamic imperialism. Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is a Sikh. In fact the much of what is now pakistan (West Punjab, Sind, Parts of Frontier) had been freed by Sikhs from islamic rule during the early 19th century.

British divide and rule politics coupled with sheer ineptitude of Indian politicians made some sikhs disown their Hindu roots and mount an insurgency with the support of muslim pakistan.

India defeated the insurgency through a focussed and committed effort albeit through some unnecessary heavy handed initial actions by intellectually mediocre indira gandhi.

Insurgency need to be fought using the war time rules rather than normal time rules.

Pseudo liberals and pseudo human right organisations are friends of insurgents that undermine the war and need to be isolated through an appropriate mix of public relations and where necessary force.
