Time to stop letting Pakistan call the shots
The Indian Army, with the backing of the government, should be willing to escalate if proportionate responses aren't enough
In yet another display of sickening behaviour, a Pakistani Border Action Team (BAT) chose to kill two Indian soldiers and mutilate their bodies in the Krishna Ghati sector of Jammu and Kashmir on Monday. The Indian Army has asserted that this “unsoldierly act" of the Pakistani army will be appropriately responded to, at a time and place of the former’s choosing. The barbarity of the incident has evoked widespread condemnation and demands are being made of the government to respond strongly. Predictably, the Pakistan army has denied the charges.
