  • Gurdaspur terror attack: Time to dust up the KPS Gill doctrine to deal with it - Firstpost

    The terrorist attack in Gurdaspur, which at the time of writing was still to be brought to a successful conclusion, proves two things: one, Pakistan is keen to revive terrorism in Punjab even while stoking it again in Jammu & Kashmir; and two, the Indian government should stop believing that appeasement as a strategy works with either the terrorists or their Pakistani sponsors. Terrorism was killed in Punjab by KPS Gill’s strong retaliatory tactics against Khalistani killers; it is being emboldened again now by the weak Akali response to latent Sikh militancy. The Akalis are shamelessly playing Sikh identity politics and have done everything to communalise issues relating to the hanging of two convicted Khalistani terrorists – Balwant Singh Rajoana, sentenced to death for the assassination of former Punjab CM Beant Singh, and Devinder Pal Singh Bhullar, convicted for acts of terror in Delhi and elsewhere.
