Gen Bipin Rawat In The Hot Seat

Author: Cecil Victor

Gen Rawat has made known his views on the use of pellet guns against civilians interfering with cordon-and-search operations. Given that the sight of sightless children could encourage someone like the student of Aligarh Muslim University to join the militants is counter-productive and undermines the counter-insurgency rationale.


Creative Tightrope Walk

Author: Ashok Sajjanhar

Solution of the issue lies in Myanmar, not in Bangladesh or India or any other country. Vitriolic criticism of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi by international community will not make Myanmar to change its position. Diplomacy and discussion is the only way to persuade Myanmar to modify its approach. Myanmar needs to be convinced that it is in its own interest to have an urgent, inclusive, peaceful resolution of the matter.

Author: Harsh V Pant

The regional states are looking at external balancers. The regional security architecture is under strain there as China’s divide-and-rule policy has made it difficult for regional States to put up a united front. Many States have suggested that India needs to play a larger role. As India and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) celebrate 25 years of their partnership this year, it is a politically opportune moment to upgrade India’s regional profile.

Author: Maj Gen Dhruv C Katoch (Retd)

India, too, has a large number of Rohingyas in West Bengal, J&K and in other parts of the country. These Rohingya remain a potential threat to the nation, especially when Pakistan-based terrorist groups, aided by the State, are focussed on subverting them. The challenge across the region, though humanitarian, has assumed deep political and security overtones, which unfortunately are justified.


Neighbours In Soup

Author: Brig Dr Anil Sharma (Retd)

Recent Agreement between Myanmar and Bangladesh (November 23, 2017) for refugee repatriation is a good beginning as it defines bilateral negotiations as the framework, mandating that the United Nations be involved only “asneeded.” Thedeal calls for the voluntary return of refugees once citizenship is verified but puts oversight of this verification in the hands of the Myanmar government. Bangladesh wants the full implementation of the terms of a Kofi Annan UN Commission.
