Opinion | Pakistan playbook poised for a reset after Pulwama
Indian response to terrorism has escalated, especially in the tenure of this government
Last week a terrorist belonging to Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM), a terror outfit promoted by Pakistan and based in that country, carried out a horrific attack through a suicide bomber. It led to the killing of 40 personnel travelling as part of a convoy of the Central Reserve Police Force in south Kashmir. The attack left the nation in shock and in deep mourning, generating unprecedented anger and the demand for retribution. The political responses, from the opposition as well as the Union government, suggest that the playbook on Pakistan, which is already seeing a subtle makeover, is poised for a major reset. On Friday, PM Modi signalled as much to our neighbour when he said this was a new India: defined by nayi neeti (new policy) and nayi reeti (new convention).
