Encounters With Reality

Sep 26, 2014 K.P.S. Gill

The Supreme Court’s order defining guidelines for encounter fatalities has been a long time coming


Blissfully Unready

Nearly six years after the Mumbai 26/11 attacks, despite a flurry of erratic and uncoordinated initiatives, India's vulnerabilities to terrorism remain unchanged

13 August, 2012

Demographic Invasion

K.P.S. Gill

Above all, the corrupt politics of vote banks and crass electoral calculi, to the manifest detriment of the national interest, must be defeated.

'Crude And Offensive'

9/11: A Decade After

South Asia Intelligence Review

As the raid on Osama bin Laden showed, 'what is required is motivated, well-trained groups to go for terrorist leadership, and thereby make a change. Not by launching infantry attacks and military attacks on so called terror hideouts'


27 November, 2008

Beyond Debate

K.P.S. Gill

The endless and ill-informed debates on legal vs. developmental vs. political vs. negotiated vs. policing vs. military responses are fruitless. This entire spectrum – from use of extreme force to negotiations and conciliation – is comprehended within

The Fountainhead

K.P.S. Gill

The Muslims do not have to, and should never be asked to, prove their loyalty and good faith any more than any other citizen of India. It is a communal trap that feeds the community's sense of siege, marginalisation and alienation. What we are experi

A Routine Reminder

K.P.S. Gill

Unless India and USA join hands to exert inexorable pressure on Islamabad to reverse the direction of its present free fall into terrorist adventurism and anarchy, the world will confront an augmenting -- and potentially catastrophic -- threat of ter

15 July, 2008

The ISI's Sinister Shadow

K.P.S. Gill

When we send men into conflict situations, there is an inevitable risk of loss of life. This should not discourage us, but should, in fact, make us all the more determined to help a friendly nation and its people out of their present distress.


11 June, 2008

The ISI Mark

K.P.S. Gill

The reality is, there is no such thing as Islamist fundamentalist terrorism. To understand the position correctly, we need to recognize that there is only ISI terror that has been dubbed as 'Islamist terror'.


21 April, 2008

K.P.S. Gill

There is an internal mechanism of self-destruction in all terrorist movements, and this is increasingly manifested in the Islamist 'global jihad' today.

The Outsiders

K.P.S. Gill

In Manipur, a succession of three incidents against 'Hindi-speaking' outsiders between March 17 and 19, 2008, resulted in the killing of 15 'migrants'. But Manipur is not alone in these isolationist excesses...

What India Needs

K.P.S. Gill

India is seeking 'global power' status, but its politics remains mired in the most extraordinary pettiness. What it needs is not just an N-Deal, but a national 'line' that will be held, irrespective of the party in power.


25 February, 2008

Internal Contradictions

K.P.S. Gill

It would be ironic indeed, but not inconceivable, in the midst of rising chaos, political corruption and maladministration, if the people of Pakistan, two or three years down the line, begin to think of the 'Musharraf years' with a sense of yearning
