The truth about Kashmir
Although I am not in favour of giving azadi to Kashmir, the truth has to be acknowledged. And the truth is that almost the whole of the Kashmiri population has turned hostile to India.
An army can fight another army, it cannot fight the masses. A tiger can attack a beast of prey, it cannot attack a swarm of mosquitoes.
We may keep boasting of our 'surgical strike', but that solves no problem. There will repeated guerilla type attacks on our armed forces in Kashmir, using hit and run tactics, the most recent one being on the Baramulla army camp.
The guerilla has the advantage of surprise. He decides the time, place and duration of the attack. And if he wins the support of the masses he becomes invincible, as was demonstrated to the French and Americans in Vietnam. He is the fish, and the people are the sea in which he swims, as was said by the Chinese Red Army leaders in their revolutionary war.
Terrible times are ahead
