Nuclear war

January 13, 2018

MUNIR Akram’s fear expressed in his article ‘The winds of nuclear war’ (Dec 24) about a nuclear war is well founded. Kashmir is a veritable nuclear tinderbox.

Bill Clinton called Kashmir a nuclear flashpoint. Several writers including Mushtaqur Rehman have elaborated why Kashmr is the most dangerous place in the world (Divided Kashmir: Old Problems, New Opportunities for India, Pakistan and the Kashmiri People, London, Lynne Reinner Publishers, London, 1996, pp. 162-163).

No talks, no mediation. India’s message is loud and clear: ‘snatch away Kashmir from us, if you can’. That is an open invitation to war, perhaps a nuclear war.
