ISLAMABAD, April 23 (DNA): “India’s ‘ Surgical Strike’ Stratagem, Brinksmanship and Response’ authored by Professor Dr. Zafar Nawaz Jaspal, was launched here at School of Politics and International Relations, QAU, Islamabad.

Dr. Jaspal introduced his book to the audience and told that he conceived this idea after the first sham surgical strike of India in 2016. He underscored that India’s mantra of surgical strikes is very perilous since a surgical strike between two unclear armed states is an unprecedented rather never occurred situation.
He further said that it bears catastrophic impinging for the region. He told that he draws on the neutral literature and his own insight on the said matter to offer a fresh perspective which is not based on rhetoric but legal and international underpinnings. He termed India’s farcical surgical strikes as phantom. He further reiterated that Modi government amidst domestic imperatives and growing turmoil on Kashmir is trying to
distract the attention of the international community.
Addressing the launch ceremony Dr. Muhammad Ali paid rich tribute to the writer for his untiring efforts and an objective research account of an issue which has been much propagated by Indian government and researchers alike.
He complimented the book as a symbol of evolving strategic thought on the matters of regional security and ramification of standoff between two nuclear arch rivals.
He said that India continues to plan the facade of fake strikes to divert the attention of the world community from Kashmir issue and atrocities being committed by its troops on innocent Kashmiris. Dr. Muhammad Ali also highlighted the importance of research and education for a vibrant and progressive society. He appreciated the SPIR for
organizing the book launch.
Speaking at the event Dr. Maria Sultan, Chairperson SASSI, highlighted various facets of regional security and Indian hegemonic postures and Indian reliance on fake terrorists attack to divert the attention of the world away from Kashmir issue and also for vested political interests.
It is the first book by a Pakistani scholar that produces original scholarship on the issue of alleged surgical strike, September 2016 by India. Dr. Jaspal is widely published scholar on Global politics, nuclear proliferation and national security. DNA
