FREUDIAN DILEMMA

FREUDIAN DILEMMA | National Security | Scoop.it

Britain’s relations with India have long been tempered by the perfidy at nativity. There has been a subliminal yearning in Britain to retain control of a former colony that was once described as the “Jewel in the Crown”. The perfidy at nativity was enacted by a Major Brown then posted in Gilgit in the former princely state of Jammu and Kashmir when he colluded in handing over the Gilgit and Skardu garrisons to Pakistan. That was a deliberately planted thorn in India’s flesh that has remained a suppurating wound called “Kashmir”. The perfidy began with the application by the last British Viceroy Lord Mountbatten of the same formula of British subjugation of Northern Ireland by the imposition of a two-nation theory (Protestant and Catholic in that case) in the subcontinent to create a nation called Pakistan.


The Freudian dilemma is apparent in the manner in which Britain has, since the 50s, transferred technology for creating the foundations of a military-industrial complex that went on to undermine Pakistan’s several attempts to carry forward a game plan for the Balkanisation of India. It was designed on the same British formula of a religion-based vivisection as in Ireland by using the fundamentalist Sikh Khalistanis in Punjab and the current attempt to amalgamate the Muslim majority Kashmir Valley on the same basis of a two-nation theory. Britain supported the Sikh separatist movement known as Khalistan by giving refuge and facilitating travel to the protagonist of Khalistan, Jagjit Singh Chauhan, who used the BBC television channel to threaten the Prime Minister of India, Indira Gandhi and her children. It turned a blind eye to Pakistani projection of Islamic fundamentalist terrorism into India.

Promoting Russia-India Cooperation In Military and Energy Spheres

 

Criticism consistently levelled by the Indian side over delays in spare parts delivery for imported Russian military equipment is largely caused by the Russian side’s cumbersome bureaucracy. Claims to Russian enterprises go through Rosoboronexport, resulting in delays that may last several months. Reputable companies should be selectively allowed to perform independent operational interventions. The time schedules followed by Western competitors should be used as benchmarks (replacing a unit should normally take 3-4 days). There is also a clear need to align servicing operations and provide technical maintenance for Russian equipment through to the end of service life, as other vendors do when dealing with India.

Al-Qaeda and the Arab Spring: The End of an Era or the Emergence of a New Threat?

In order to understand how Al-Qaeda affects the Arab Spring and vice versa, we will need to root back to the ideological foundations of the terrorist organisation. The immediate objective of the group was to drive all non-muslim forces from the areas that comprised the 7th century Caliphate, unify these lands and eventually re-establish that political entity, and run it by the Islamic law (Sharia).i The political forces opposing these goals were a series of dictatorships that were of a secular nature (Egypt, Syria, Iraq etc)1. These regimes became the prime target of Al-Qaeda as they constituted the barrier between the organisation and its objective, becoming the main target of them during the 90s and henceforth.

Intelligence and National Security

Intelligence and National Security

After every major terrorist attack intelligence agencies invariably face criticism and undergo public scrutiny. Quite often the agencies are made the scapegoat. People talk about revamping intelligence, committees are formed and a case is made out for greater allocation of resources and restructuring the intelligence apparatus. But once the storm passes over, the policy makers, the media and the public forget the matter. Worse still, they seem to resent a really effective, meaningful role for the intelligence. As a result, intelligence operates on the fringe of government, often unable to upgrade collection assets and recruit good quality, talented people. Structural reforms in the shape of new institutions do take place occasionally, but systemic or fundamental change hardly ever takes place. For systemic change to take place, we need to reassess our national security objectives and determine what kind of intelligence needs to be collected in the context of the complex security scenario today. It is important to remember that we have not been able to formulate a viable national security doctrine because there is no consensus on core issues and objectives.

India’s Internal Security Challenges are Significant

While India’s internal security concerns may seem similar to those of other nations, India’s geography – 7,000 km of coast and 15,000 km land border – large population, social and political exigencies, dated security and scrutiny technological tools pose peculiar challenges.

A federal system with multi and regional party system also throws open the challenge of centre and state co-ordination. Given the constraints, successive governments face a formidable task in identifying and containing security threats.
