    Read this here: http://idrw.org/india-could-go-nuclear-with-china-and-pakistan/

    The article is as follows :

    With the new army chief of India appointed at the start of the New Year, the country could be looking at a new era of change where military policies are concerned. From the looks of it, enhanced preparations for war against neighboring rivals may start. China’s Support Of Pakistan Makes India Uncomfortable India has been plagued with growing tensions from both northern and north western bordering countries, China and Pakistan, respectively. While its conflict with Pakistan goes back to when India gained independence and subsequently suffered a partition of the country (hence, creating Pakistan), China is more of an ally-turned-hostile. China’s partnership with Pakistan has grown regarding the Kashmir issue, the key point of the Indo-Pak dispute. Needless to say, this did not go well with India. However, since the relationship with Pakistan, or lack of, is something India does not expect to resolve anytime soon, it is now preparing for “a two-front war.” Bipin Rawat, the new army chief, is convinced that a war with Pakistan is inevitable in the near future. “The fact that terrorists infiltrating from adversary’s side means that they are getting support from them [Pakistani forces]. We also have to think ahead, and the ball has already rolling in that direction,” he told the Times Now, as per Financial Express. For this purpose, India has been developing the Agni-V intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), which could be launched at Beijing. However, this is still in theory, since none of these countries desire a nuclear war.

    India Might Violate ‘No First Use’ Policy
    India and China both carry a vast population of people. Hence, sparking off a deadly war would be to the disadvantage of the masses. With this view in mind, both of them entered a policy of “no first use” when it comes to nuclear power. This basically means that both of them have enough nuclear might to take down the other. But none will make the first move. This cautiously devised policy has encouraged both countries to work with mutual cooperation in the past. However, with China looking to render India in a disadvantageous position by taking control of the South China Sea, circumstances have changed. According to CNN, India’s defense minister, Manohar Parrikar, wondered in November if India should uphold the “no first use” policy: “If a written down policy exists, or you take a stand on a nuclear aspect, I think you are truly giving away your strength in nuclear. Why should I bind myself? I should say I’m a responsible nuclear power and I will not use it irresponsibly.” However, the situation being high-risk, everyone involved has agreed that nuclear war should always be the last resort.

    In my opinion, this is not likely!
    Would be really a MAD scenario.

    I doubt that! I really doubt India is ever going to drop a nuke on any country without being hit by one!

    What if a terrorist successfully smuggles a nuke into our country and we caught it before they can detonate it...? Can that trigger a nuclear retalliation from us towards our neighbour:azn::evilgrin:...?

    Considering how things work in our country, I don't think so!
    It will be dealt with in a severe manner, may be India decides to hit Pakistan (using conventional weapons). The result of such an event might trigger a war, but triggering a Nuke strike from India's end is unlikely!

    What is there to violate something that do not exist? Do you people really think that if there is a choice between conducting a counterforce strike on Pakistan and getting nuked, India would chose to get nuked rather than using nukes.

    If India chose leaders who would prefer getting nuked rather than using nukes to take our pakistani nukes in case of an imminent strike, it and its people deserve to get nuked.

    The window is extremely small imho. How does one be certain that a nuke attack is imminent ? A country can launch a preventive-strike IF AND ONLY IF the administration is sure that a NUKE will be coming their way. But I really don't think there is a way to be sure about a thing like that.
