India is looking to raise new ‘rocket force’ for missiles, says Gen Bi Rawat
NEW DELHI: Gen Bi Rawat on Wednesday said India needs an integrated national security architecture to deal with two hostile neighbours, non-contact technological warfare and internal security challenges.
Taking recourse to Samuel Huntington's seminal thesis 'Clash of Civilizations' during a talk at the India International Centre, the chief of defence staff said it mentions that the Confucian or 'Sinic' civilization would actually join hands with the Is mic civilization to counter the western one.
"Whether that is going to happen or not, only time will tell. But we are seeing some kind of 'jointmanship' between the Sinic and Is mic civilizations. You can see China is now making friends with Iran, moving towards Turkey and step into Afghanistan. They (China) will step into Afghanistan in the time to come very shortly," Gen Rawat said.
Noting that the rise of China had happened faster than what the world has envisaged, India will have to wait-and-watch how events unfold in the Taliban-controlled Afghanistan. "We don't know what is in the future. There can be more turmoil in Afghanistan and changes that can't be anticipated as of now," he added.
Turning to Pakistan, the CDS said the western adversary will continue to fuel and expand its proxy war ag inst India. "Today, we find it happening in J&K. They (Pakistan) are attempting it in Punjab once again, and are also trying to spread their wings in other parts of the country," he said.
Israile can survive in middle of the multiple enemy, we have only two. If nation make up their will, no one can bit them, we need to pump some nationalisom to our national congresh.
Glad we are not ruled by traitors from 2014..

Stop buying from China

The fact is that India by it's inaction ag inst Paki proxy was is encouraging Pakistan to use Meccavir s within India to create unrest. What is stop India to take retaliating action ?
All large domestic Indian companies such as Tatas, Birlas, Sundaram group, L&T, Reliance, M&M, BEL, BHEL ,DRDO, ISRO, should be encouraged to set up wons research and development and modern warfare sy ems and equipments .
Like frogs surface during rainy season, ToadRawat surfaces in Election season to make ribbit sounds.
Further Indian giants such as Tatas, RIL, M&M , L&T, Birlas , TVS etc should be encouraged in the defence sector.
Learn from China. Do more, talk less. We have been saying since independence: "Bharat ek din dunia ko rashta dikhiaga". Has it happened yet. Why keep talking and do nothing, ho people will forget what you did.
The bigger challenge are the enemies within. Po iticians are corrupt to the core and the opposition est for the sake of opposition.
The fact is India needs strong and bold PM like Modi who is not afraid of taking strong actions ag inst our enemy.
Don’t worry Rawat Sahib we have Pappu the great he can handle everything without fear the person who can make Gold from patatos he can do any thing
This decade will be tough as the situation in India’s neighbourhood will become very unstable
Best gift Indian can give to their mother country and the best way to prect her is not to buy anything from an aggressor country.
-India needs faster progress, economic growth at least 15-18% for next 10 years. Economic progress of poor people will help country to improve faster.
What US could not do, China would do.
GENERAL RAWAT HAS A POINT WHEN HE MENTIONS CHINA AND PAKISTAN ARE TRYING TO DESTABILIZE INDIA THROUGH PROXY WAR. In the aftermath of Afghan development it is imperative that we have to raise our guard both ag inst external aggression and internal te rorm. Modi Ji's QUAD initiative is welcome to keep China under check
India also needs cyber security or cyber war fare re gient in army to tackle the penetration capabilities of our enemies
