India-Pakistan

Rohit pande , Have a view on many things but happy to thras Sep, 24 2016

Has Mr Modi's speech today already replied to Pakistan's aggression or is it just a PR rehash


First of all, what a tightrope Mr Modi walked between the domestic constituencies baying for blood and his statesman like response to temper that instinct with moderation. He had words to offer for both and like a trapeze artiste he performed with bluster.


But beyond words, the skeptics would ask -


Where is the evidence of retaliation ? Has India revenged Uri already ?

Our countries really coming forward in India's bid to isolate Pakistan diplomatically and taking sides

Is Pakistan scared now given the stern warning from the PM and his strong gesticulation ?

A) No evidence of retaliation presented. Nor will it ever be.

B) India has not revenged Uri like Pakistan has not revenged 1971 etc. Its the unending cycle that needs to be terminated. This tit-for-tat methodology is getting us nowhere.

C) No country wants to take sides in this conflict because it is not a black or white one.Both sides are right and wrong at different places. If I was a country too, i would tell both countries to sort their stuff out among themselves, which is also the UN stance.

D) Pakistan is not scared, because in the overall scenario, we are at a stalemate. But if we make an aggressive move of publishing all our raw data online and letting the world make a decision based on facts, they would be forced to do the same too. True, this can go both ways, because in politics everything is subjective and highly dependent on each sides point of view. But let the people decide and lets get this over with once and for all. The politicians have wasted the lives of generations of Kashmiris already and the hatred built up is going to take generations to subside. Get to a resolution already!

Chetan 1971 was not Indian triggered war, there has never been a war started by India.


"No country wants to take sides in this conflict because it is not a black or white one" what is the black side of India?


"Pakistan is not scared, because in the overall scenario, we are at a stalemate." totally agree

But would the blood thirsty supporters egged on by their favorite superstar anchors who urge Mr Modi to break up Pakistan like cutting a melon be satisfied ? What would be their closure ? ( the anchors of course are smart and would already be researching where to shift their rhetoric next )

"The politicians have wasted the lives of generations of Kashmiris already and the hatred built up is going to take generations to subside. Get to a resolution already!" is no justification of Uri attack, or Pathankot or Mumbai 26/11. Why are we confusing the two

Although the speech was different from your garden variety we condemn Pakistan , I cannot see why some media analysts are calling it master stroke. As expected the speech was full of rhetoric and claim,but other than that it offered nothing substantial.

Sorry to spell this out,but addressing Pakistan citizens is a futile move. Apart from the fact that the speech will not reach majority of Pakistan citizens, why would they believe PM of enemy country. More importantly Pakistan Army actions are not affected by general public sentiments.

Modi mentioned Gilgit-Balitistan and Sindh province in his speech. Given that we haven't done any substantial progress in regard to Baluchistan affair, I am not sure what effect this will have on Pakistani establishment.

He again reiterated that Uri will be avenged but reality is that we have failed in almost every aspect to isolate Pakistan : No country has directly condemned Pakistan for spreading terror, economic sanctions are nowhere in scene and frankly our UN speech fell on deaf ears. By now it should be clear, world don't care about India being a victim of terrorism.

Government has no plan to scrap Indus Water treaty and also MFN status to Pakistan is going to stay.

So yes it was mere PR rehash.

Isn't the concern of contemporary politics that when spin can replace substantive action with greater returns, there is hardly any incentive to do real things on the ground. Thus real change or outcomes are getting more and more elusive, issue after issue

It is a PR rhetoric . I was terrible disappointed with his speech first one after URI attack . I was more disappointed that he did not address the hurt nation after attack. He even shied away from mentioning Pakistans name . Same old we will punish the culprits,, we will isolate you. What isolate how was it different from what happened after 26/11. Manmohan said the same word maybe not in baritone. We are tired of this rhetoric. I am against war but why is he not showing his anger in his actions. Why is he not kicking out Basi . Why is he not declaring Pakistan a terrorist state in a special session of parliament. Why is he not declaring to world that he is not going to saarc and he thinks that forum is meaningless as long as it has that crapy state called Pakistan. I am really disappointed Narendra Damodardas Modi for the first time after he became my prime minister .

Still searching for the view which thinks he again changed the rules of the game by turning pak people against their state. Or that he flexed Indias true power by showing restraint.

What's your opinion?

Do you things are still the same?

Did you ever see such mobilization against Pakistan in last 10 years?

Did you ever see such direct attack on Pakistan diplomatically on an international level?

Did you see army men commending the govt for their moves earlier?



Rohit pande , Have a view on many things but happy to thras Sep, 25 2016


It's goggles that decide what we see in these polarised times. is the claim that we have already avenged uri or that we have set in place a motion that shall avenge


Arushi Singh , Here to become a monk :) Sep, 25 2016


What I see through my goggles is that we have set in place a motion that shall avenge.

I am sure no one would say that we have already avenged uri.

I am also sure that no one would say that we have not set in motion. Unless one has its own prejudices.



Rohit pande , Have a view on many things but happy to thras Sep, 25 2016


You would be surprised how many would say we have already avenged. Either covertly or by thundering at the pak establishment. Truths come in multiple flavours of biases

Kozhikode conclave of the BJPee acquired significance and was imparted a great spin and tremendously hyped by the Media on the back of Uri attack and it was believed would be giving some stern message to Pakistan, but it ended even without a whimper with Modi turning the conclave merely into a development strategy for the party in the State in line with Amit Shah's road map for the growth of BJPee in the virgin States to make up for anticipated losses in its strongholds. All those who were hoping for some coherent strategy on the military front ended up with rotten eggs on their faces.

But what are the supporters of Mr Modi saying ? Love to hear whether they see revenge and courage in his eyes and the roar of his voice. I am sure someone here too sees merit in his response

There are some people you can not ignore. Modi is over of them.

One cannot speak with such passion without actually being so passionate about it.

What do think that after this speech he would have gone and slept. He would have worked even harder to achieve what promised. Stories of his hard work are not hidden from anyone.

Showing country there right path and giving his heart and soul to it, what more can we expect from a man when we ourselves are nothing but letter internet warriors for our country

Wordsmiths of social media and public rallies. May the power be with the spin.

Highly disappointed, understood that military action might seem unwise however imposing economic/ trade sanctions was the minimum he could have done. Its high time we show the world the other non subdued side of India



Mrinal chatterjee , Sep, 25 2016


He clearly prefers diplomatic route despite all build up of the army generals talking about teaching them a lesson. This is highly unexpected of a nations Prime Minister. Nehru was always ridiculed because of him taking every issue diplomatically and to UN, we can't afford to make the same mistake.
