Sources in the security establishment told The Sunday Guardian that Pakistan’s ISI is actually trying to convince the international community that India is a “terrorist state” and to that end, while manufacturing evidence, it is taking drafting points from the way Indian agencies prepare genuine dossiers against Pakistan-based terrorists’ activities.

In a recent dossier prepared by the ISI to “unmask the role of India’s Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) in planting IEDs to target Pakistani assets and civilians”, the ISI manufactured evidences to allege that the Indian agencies were carrying out terror strikes in the country. The fake report has been drafted in a manner Indian agencies prepare genuine reports after investigating terror strikes in India. Continue reading

In paper the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) comes across as formidable. It is currently engaged in about 70 projects that include making almost every major conventional weapon system and platform that major military powers are already manufacturing. From rifles and machine guns to tanks, fighter aircraft, airborne warning and control system, aircraft carrier and a wide array of missiles—surface-to-air, surface-to-surface and sub surface. In reality, the DRDO has much to answer for its performance.

The DRDO, entrusted with developing weapon systems for India’s defence requirement, is critical for ensuring a high degree of self-reliance. Its huge establishment comprises a partnership with over 40 academic institutions, 15 national science and technology agencies, 50 public sector undertakings including the nine defence public sector units, the 40 ordnance factories and the over 250 private sector industries. By 2008, an estimated 1,500 small and medium enterprises were engaged in supplying about 20% to 25% of defence components to defence firms. Continue reading


Kashmir Singh is no ordinary man. For nearly 35 years he was imprisoned in Pakistan, accused of spying for India. Never once, during his incarceration, through all the torture he underwent, did Mr. Singh admit to spying.

Never once has the Government of India acknowledged he had spied for this country. He received a rousing welcome when he came back in 2008, and shocked everybody when he later declared that he had indeed spied for the country, having been trained and deployed by the military intelligence (MI).

The world needs more India and less China—that’s according to many of the members of the global strategic community who were in India last week. They came for the third Raisina Dialogue, hosted by the Observer Research Foundation and India’s Ministry of External Affairs. It was a stellar line up.
