Was Indian NSA – Ajit Doval behind the Surgical Strikes on Pakistan? Pakistan had vehemently denied any surgical strikes, while international media was not really convinced. Even the Indian opposition Congress party questioned the surgical strikes on Pakistan and it was left for the pro-government Indian media to share the other side of the story. EurAsian Times came across an interesting article from the Pakistan media on their version of “Surgical Strikes”.

Pakistan Media, the Tribune writes: After taking over as India’s Prime Minister, Narendra Modi began on the policy of relentless suppression of freedom movement of Jammu and Kashmir. Indian National security advisor – Ajit Doval, was the person behind the policy of brutal oppression in the Kashmir valley.
Despite Modi’s highly repressive actions in the Kashmir Valley, political and armed resistance intensified. A young freedom fighter, Burhan Wani, who was immensely popular was killed on 8 July 2016 by Indian Army troops. His killing sparked a new wave of unrest in Jammu and Kashmir. The violence and disturbance that erupted after his death caused 96 deaths and over 15,000 people were injured.
The Indian Army went insane in its cruelties using all kind of barbaric techniques of suppression. The authoritarian policies proved counterproductive and added to Modi’s frustrations, displayed through his highly hostile statements in the period preceding the so-called surgical strike.
As usual, Pakistan was blamed for abetting terrorism from across the LOC. The Indian electronic media aggressively augmented the anti-Pakistan frenzy amongst the masses. Thus, India drifted into a highly charged situation wherein its government had to match its war of words with action against Pakistan or face embarrassment.
The Indian PM was all set for a major action against Pakistan across the Line of Control but was clueless about the outcomes of such an action against a well-equipped Pakistan Army. The Indian Army Chief, General Dalbir Singh, explained the repercussions of the attack, tactical constraints and the possibility of an escalation of the conflict leading to a nuclear showdown.
This deflated the determined mood of PM Modi, but then came Ajit Doval, the master crafter of deceit with a clever plan that, in his estimation, could salvage the situation for his PM i.e, “A surgical strike.
General Dalbir opposed the Doval’s plan due to its flawed assumption and a fictional concept but he had to give in because the PM Modi was quick to buy it.
Doval’s plan unfolded with an attack on an army camp at Uri in the wee hours of 18 September 2016 by four “militants.” The raid was backed up and planned by an Indian intelligence outfit that had penetration in the freedom fighting network with moles that could get such operations launched.

It was intended to be a small-scale raid, to be projected as a provocative action justifying attack across the LOC. As the militants opened fire and threw grenades in pre-designated areas away from the tents, the dry grass caught fire. The fire rapidly engulfed the sub-standard canvas tents and resultantly seventeen Indian soldiers were burnt to death.
Things went wrong right from the outset. This was followed by a pre-meditated closed-door meeting between the home minister, defence minister, army chief and Ajit Doval on September 19. Then came the Indian announcement on September 29 about the surgical strike, without any such operation being actually conducted.
The entire matter of the surgical strike was a failed attempt to pacify the Indian public that had been led to a state of anti-Pakistan insanity due to the hostile stance of the Indian government.
It was a depressing affair for the Indian army that was made to look miserable and had to own something very stupid. The plan heavily relied on media projection without the realisation that in today’s high-tech age large-scale manoeuvres cannot escape satellites and sensors. The follow-up actions of making fiction a reality further embarrassed India and its army and the entire affair was a terribly messed-up exercise in futility.
