Three terrorist attacks were carried out one after the other in the last 60 hours. Three terrorist attacks were carried out in Reasi, Kathua and Doda in Jammu and Kashmir in three days. 9 pilgrims lost their lives in these attacks.

Its purpose was to give a message to India and the international community

According to defense and strategic analyst Lieutenant Colonel (Retired) JS Sodhi, the terrorists chose the time when Modi was taking oath as Prime Minister for the third time. Secondly, at that time the whole world's attention was on Modi's swearing-in. Pakistani terrorists used this to send a message to India and the international community that the Kashmir issue is not over yet. More or less they were successful in this. The attention of the whole world was drawn towards this.

Why did the terrorists from Pakistan choose the time of oath taking?

According to Lt. Col. (Retd) JS Sodhi, the reason for attacking during Modi's swearing-in was to gain international publicity for their personal use by the terrorists. Three terrorist incidents in three days are proof of this. At that time the eyes of the whole world were on India.

The evening time was also chosen so that we could run away into the forest

According to Lieutenant Colonel (Retired) JS Sodhi, the terrorists' strategy of attacking was exactly like ambushing military vehicles. The terrorists chose the evening time to attack so that they could escape easily. This is because by the time any action was taken against them, it would have become dark. The terrorists wanted to disrupt the swearing-in ceremony which was to start at 6 pm. Therefore, the attack was carried out at 5 pm. After the attack, the terrorists managed to escape from the spot because the area around the place where the attack took place is a forest.

Did the army not get intelligence inputs, how is it decoded?

According to Lieutenant Colonel (Retired) JS Sodhi, intelligence inputs must have been received for such attacks. Inputs are received from such a large number of intelligence agencies that sometimes it becomes difficult to find out which inputs can be acted upon. Sometimes human error also occurs, because if the input does not have all the details, then it becomes difficult to act on them immediately. The army is always in alert mode, but sometimes it is not possible to guess.

General Zia's lessons are being taught to Pakistani soldiers

Lieutenant Colonel (Retired) JS Sodhi says that after losing badly in the 1971 war, the bewildered Pakistan had understood that India cannot be defeated in a direct war. In such a situation, such attacks should be made on India which weaken its internal strength. In 1976, the then Pakistani Army Chief General Zia-ul-Haq had made a military doctrine. Its name was Bleed India with a Thousand Cuts. General Zia said that this decision has been taken because India cannot be defeated in a direct war. In such a situation, attacks will be made on India from various places and it will be given deep wounds. This will worsen the internal security situation of India. This same General Zia later became the President of Pakistan by carrying out a coup.

There may be a war between Pakistan and China in 2035

Lieutenant Colonel (Retired) JS Sodhi says that on 8 July 2013, China's official newspaper Winweipu predicted that in 2035 there would be a war on two fronts, in which China and Pakistan would jointly attack India. China is also interested in POJK. The $65 billion economic corridor project will also pass through POK. China has invested money in many hydropower projects in POK. Pakistan handed over the 5,180 square kilometer Shaksgam valley to China under an illegal agreement in 1963. Earlier, Pakistan had handed over more than 38 thousand square kilometers of Aksai Chin to China.

The Army has a Cold Start doctrine to deal with such attacks

According to Lieutenant Colonel (Retired) JS Sodhi, the Indian Army developed the Cold Start Doctrine in 2009. According to this, if an enemy country or its terrorists attack during peace time, a strategy was made to retaliate within 48 hours. Its purpose is also to not give Pakistan a chance to launch a nuclear attack in case of war. Till now, if the enemy attacked, it took a lot of time to transport soldiers from different parts of the country. The Indian Army had foiled Pakistan's plans in the same way in the Kargil war.
