Book on Indian surgical strike stratagem launched

4th Session of the Pakistan-EU Strategic Dialogue held in Islamabad



ISLAMABAD, April 23 (DNA): “India’s ‘ Surgical Strike’ Stratagem,  Brinksmanship and Response’ authored by Professor Dr. Zafar Nawaz  Jaspal, was launched here at School of Politics and International  Relations, QAU, Islamabad.


The panelists included Dr. Maria Sultan, Director General SASSI and  Khalid Banuri, former DG ACDA while Vice Chancellor Quaid I Azam  University Professor Dr. Muhammad Ali was the chief guest of the  occasion.


Dr. Jaspal introduced his book to the audience and told that he  conceived this idea after the first sham surgical strike of India in  2016. He underscored that India’s mantra of surgical strikes is very  perilous since a surgical strike between two unclear armed states is an  unprecedented rather never occurred situation.


He further said that it bears catastrophic impinging for the region. He  told that he draws on the neutral literature and his own insight on the  said matter to offer a fresh perspective which is not based on rhetoric  but legal and international underpinnings. He termed India’s farcical  surgical strikes as phantom. He further reiterated that Modi government  amidst domestic imperatives and growing turmoil on Kashmir is trying to

distract the attention of the international community.


Addressing the launch ceremony Dr. Muhammad Ali paid rich tribute to the  writer for his untiring efforts and an objective research account of an  issue which has been much propagated by Indian government and  researchers alike.


He complimented the book as a symbol of evolving strategic thought on  the matters of regional security and ramification of standoff between  two nuclear arch rivals.


He said that India continues to plan the facade of fake strikes to  divert the attention of the world community from Kashmir issue and  atrocities being committed by its troops on innocent Kashmiris. Dr.  Muhammad Ali also highlighted the importance of research and education  for a vibrant and progressive society. He appreciated the SPIR for

organizing the book launch.


Speaking at the event Dr. Maria Sultan, Chairperson SASSI, highlighted  various facets of regional security and Indian hegemonic postures and  Indian reliance on fake terrorists attack to divert the attention of the  world away from Kashmir issue and also for vested political interests.


It is the first book by a Pakistani scholar that produces original  scholarship on the issue of alleged surgical strike, September 2016 by  India. Dr. Jaspal is widely published scholar on Global politics,  nuclear proliferation and national security. DNA
