After the abrogation of Article 370, is it the right time for balkanisation of Pakistan? And how does India benefit?
It goes without saying that Pakistan has over the years earned the notorious reputation of being the world’s largest incubator of jihad. The Foreign Policy magazine ranks Pakistan on the top 10 list of failed states.
With flawed boundaries and an unholy nexus between Islamic extremism and military rule, there is no doubt Pakistan is on a self-destruct mode and verge of a collapse. One of the biggest talking points over the years for Pakistan has been Kashmir. It would not be wrong to say that the country has benefited for long thanks to a weak policy by India, which felt the need to have a more inclusive approach. This meant appeasement of local politicians and worse, the separatists of the Valley.
New Delhi, Aug 21: There is tight security in Jammu and Kashmir. Curbs are being eased gradually on a daily basis and besides a few incidents of violence, nothing major has taken place, since the abrogation of Article 370.
The curbs have come under question and three petitions have also been filed in the Supreme Court. Former officer of the Research and Analysis Wing, Amar Bhushan tells OneIndia that the curbs were absolutely needed and had it not been imposed passion and anger would have spiralled out of control.

I have dealt with such situations and I know how high the anger and passion can be. It would have been a foolish decision to go ahead with such a decision without the restrictions, Bhushan also adds. Questioning the need for restrictions in the Valley is foolish, he also adds.
New Delhi, July 03: Espionage is a risky business and sources are recruited with great care to minimise the risk of exposure.
It was the year 1989-90 and India was having its fair share of troubles with Nepal. The then King Birendra was refusing to extend the Indo-Nepal friendship treaty and India was having a tough time. India had to get Nepal back on track as the administration over there had become close to the Chinese, had started buying weapons from them. Also worrisome was the fact that Kathmandu had become a happy hunting ground for the ISI, which was using it to shelter and also facilitate the escape of Kashmiri terrorists.
New Delhi, May 28: With Narendra Modi set for a second term, the focus will be largely on national security and development. One of the key areas where the focus would be on is Pakistan.
During a call with Prime Minister of Pakistan, Imran Khan, the Indian PM made it clear that if talks are to continue then, action against terrorism is a must.
New Delhi, May 16: The violence in West Bengal has been unprecedented and the developments in the state over the past couple of years has been worrying.
Back in 1992-93, the Research and Analysis Wing undertook an operation in Bangladesh to immobilise targets of the Jamaat-e-Islami. The operation largely dealt with stopping the Jamaat from undertaking a major operation in which involved infiltrating Bangladeshis into India with a motive of creating a Greater East Pakistan.
New Delhi, May 08: Radicalisation and terror down south has been a major concern. The fact of the matter is that there was always a danger lurking and it is also a fact that the agencies reacted late in this part of the country.
Was it due to the late reactions that let terror and radicalisation flourish in South India. Former officer of the Research and Analysis Wing, Amar Bhushan says that it is unfair to accuse the agencies of reacting late in South India. Let us put this thing in perspective and the fact is that the agencies never got a free hand to act against radicalisation and terrorism down South, he tells OneIndia.

New Delhi, Feb 15: Following a high-level meeting in the aftermath of the Pulwama attack, the Indian government said that it had withdrawn the most favoured nation status given to Pakistan. With Kashmir witnessing one of the most ghastly attacks, there is considerable pressure under the government to act against Pakistan.
