Indian Defence Minister’s statement a ‘nuclear blackmail’


Staff Reporter


Noted defence Analyst Dr Maria Sultan on Sunday termed the Indian defence minister Rajnath’s statement of ‘rethinking no first use’ as nuclear blackmail which reflected the ‘Hindutva Ideology’ of radical Indian Premier Narendra Modi.
Talking to media, defence analyst and Chairperson South Asian Strategic Stability Institute (SASSI) University Dr Maria Sultan said the irresponsible statement of Rajnath Singh had put the region in dangerous stage. She termed the situation as unfortunate as Indian leadership was not recognizing the gravity of threat associated with nuclear brinkmanship.
‘Indian actions have showed that Kashmir was potentially the most dangerous zone on earth and a nuclear-flash point,’ she added.
To a question, Dr Maria Sultan said that it was unfortunate that Indian radical PM Narendra Modi had a direct control over nukes, adding Indian national security advisor (NSA) was also another extremist with an intelligence background. Expressing concern over the statement, she said that Narendra Modi with Saffron ideology, may decide on nukes endangering the peace of the whole world.
