Use of religion or any “ism invariably gives rise to multitude of radical streams out of control of the main leadership. This is what has happened in Kashmir because a whole generation has been brought up in a culture of religious fundamentalism and intolerance of other faiths.

The acquisition of Vikrmaditya (Gorshkov) formed part of the joint Indo-Russian Protocol on Military Technical Cooperation signed in December 1994. The financial aspects were unusual – Gorshkov ‘as is, where is’ would be free; India need only pay for the cost of refit and the aircraft.

Encouraged by its re-enhanced influence and the backing of the Army and the ISI, it is to be expected that the LET will redouble its efforts for another terrorist strike in India.

The aspect of deporting Abu Jindal subsequently by Saudi Intelligence shows that the Western intelligence agencies led primarily by America are responsible for pressurizing the Saudis to handover perpetrators of 26/11 to India. The role of Indian Intelligence and Delhi Police appears to be limited to the extent that they were kept in the loop.
Prima facie it appears that Abu Jindal and Abu Hamza are assumed names of an Indian citizen Syed Zabuddin Ansari. Lashkar-e-Toiba normally provides such

Indian Defence Review
Introduction
Indian Defence Review (IDR) in print andwww.Indiandefencereview.com are considered as the most respected forum for strategic discussion in India.

Indian Defence Review (IDR), the brainchild of former captain of the Indian army, was launched on January 1, 1986 as a logical addition to Lancer, the first dedicated Indian military publishing house established in 1979.

Under the direction and leadership of its first two editors, Lt. Gen Mathew Thomas (1986) and Maj. Gen Afsir Karim (1993), both distinguished paratroopers, IDR began public engagement and national debate on military and security issues, which received immediate attention of the defence establishment, policy makers and national leadership in India.

Continuing in this strong tradition and moving aggressively forward, IDR publisher and its third editor, Capt. Bharat Verma (1998), finally succeeded in placing the national security challenges “front and centre” of the public debate. With the launch of web version of the journal, www.indiandefencereview.com in 2006, IDR  became India’s preeminent public policy publication on foreign policy and national security issues.

IDR is a highly reliable, respected and unique resource for government and defence officials, strategic planners, analysts, journalists and the general public.

IDR extensively covers geopolitics, foreign policy, aerospace trends, naval affairs, army force development, and internal security and the defence industry.  The journal is a trusted, independent and comprehensive source of critical information and insight that is necessary for public debate and civil discourse on matters related to India’s sovereignty, national integrity, security and defence. When important national security and defence issues arise, IDR is not only part of the conversation but also shapes the national debate.

IDR brings together leading experts (ex-military, government and academia) who provide the highest quality of independent, timely and authoritative expert analysis of current national and international events, emerging trends relating to security and defence, historical analysis and strategic forecasting and offer practical and pragmatic solutions and policy options that help address security and defence challenges impacting India.

IDR writers have made deep inroads into national security and defence debate once considered to be the preserve of the establishment in New Delhi, which in the past only relied and depended on analysis imported from foreign publications.

IDR, the country’s premium and most prestigious journal, won accolades including “India’s best known military publication” and “the most impressive, useful and independent publication” and remains the “most quoted”. Considered a ‘policy making journal,’ IDR is recommended reading by the Army, Navy, and the Air Force headquarters for officers.

Today, IDR is acknowledged as one of the top journals in the defence sector, is available in “print” as well as “on-line” and interacts with the social media.
