    A truly outstanding summation. One pedantic correction: the Chinese claim is not based on Tibet, except in Baltistan. The Chinese claim is based on the traditional feudal rights of the Khans of Kashgar and Khotan. That part of the world looks to the north, and to the west. Now that should give the thoughtful reader a clue: verb. sap.

    I am sad to say that @Levina , and, quoting her, @Hellfire, are probably correct in their assumption that the only value of these people is as irritants to Pakistan and to China.

    The Seats in Our Lok Sabha are fixed at 543

    If you start increasing seats and Reserving seats there will be MORE DEMANDS

    That is known as Competitive Populism

    1. Purge both territories? Wow. Stalin lives.
    2. Nuclear arsenal to be neutralised by US and India takes advantage of the confusion. Fascinating. The Tom Clancy School of Diplomacy is alive and well.
    3. Article 370 cannot be rescinded.
    4. Recension = revision of a text.

    That is not the problem, if we add these into seats. Then election need to occur sometime in future.

    How we select candidates?

    How the population of PoK participate into election?

    How we do delineation of constituency?

    And many more problems.

    This world is NEVER Constant

    Just 50 Years AGO in 1957 ; India was a POST COLONIAL Weakling
    Confused ; what to do ; where to go ; which camp to join

    Our NEHRU JI wanted to Dismantle The Army and Earn Noble Prize

    Today we have MODI unravelling the Nehruvian Model

    Who knows what will happen in Future

    We need to first See the END of OLD people in India who are still
    enamoured with Peace with Pakistan

    The Young Generation will come to POWER in Future; Is nt it

    If we do get our hands on it , would you rather we waste time , material , men and money in pacifying the territory or just have one bloody purge on our conscience ?

    Would you deny that it isn't in the realms of the possible ?The US has been war gaming for just such a scenario for years w.t.t both NK & Pakistan .You can refer to the net for sources .
    It's not easy but it lies within the realms of the do able.If we have diluted Article 370 substantially , what makes you think rescinding it is impossible .


    Slip of tongue, typo , error , or pun unintended .Take your pick .

    They just need to hurt Pakistan in response of Jadav's sentence by military court.

    Well said! You have exactly hit the nail on the head with this statement. This has been the Pakistani policy since 1950. They have 'indigenised' and 'homogenised' the local population of the area with such measures and provision of both tnagible and non-tangible incentives for those willing to settle there.

    Your ISI Officer is a much more valuable catch than Jadhav

    Jadhav is already dead ; you are just doing a drama

    The BEST part of The Jadhav hanging is that The PEACE LOBBY in INDIA
    will be completely KILLED

    They are always breathing down our Neck : Peace Talks-- Peace Talks

    Now they are running scared

    Revenge will happen in many ways ; Now Modi has a Free hand

    Thank you Pakistan for Hanging Jadhav

    Sir.

    I took the risk elaborating, seeing you are around to carry out the necessary corrections/amendments :)

    Thank you, as always.

    We should Bomb The terror Camps in Pakistan and Pak Army Cantonments
    BUT DONT DECLARE It like the Surgical Strikes of last year

    Let Pakistan cry and escalate and then we Tell what happened

    This is a Very Benign Move which will NOT get any Tangible benefits for India

    The Hard liners in GHQ only understand Hard Power

    Symbolism yields nothing

    So you think India should go on a war with Pak to grab GB back? Lets be real.
    If this is symbolism to you then so be it. To me this is part of psy ops.
