Shiromani Akali Dal (Amritsar)states that it is not possible physically for the IAF to take on Islamic Pakistan and Communist China simultaneously, unless the US has given THIS (Theocratic Hindu Indian state) some assurance. If that happens the Asiatic war would take on a greater dimension, with Russia stepping in to aid Islamic Pakistan and Communist China.
At this stage the Hindu states military does not have the wherewithal to take on its two adversaries as it lacks fighter air craft, the Migs, Jaguars, Mirages, the transport and surveillances planes are all old and obsolete.
The navel power is also way behind in weaponry as compared to China’s.
The Army lacks modern tanks, its artillery pieces are old and fit to be sold as junk or scrap. The foot soldier does not have the modern rifles though the Ishapuri rifle is being withdrawn but not replaced with any modern rifle.
There is too much corruption in the higher echelons of the officer cadre.
With the exreme, radical, BJP-RSS Hindu government in power at the Union the Sikh’s and Muslim’s are being held under suspicion and this is hurting the morale of the fighting forces.
The new order of the BJP-RSS government ordering the military to pickup the broom and pickup scraps of litter has not been taken kindly by the forces as their task and duty is to engage in war and in peace to train for war.
Earlier under the Nehru and Krishna Menon regime the forces were ordered to build their barracks and living accomadation resulting in their being ill- trained for battle, resulting in the debacle of the 1962 war against Communist China.
The crux of the problem is that the Hindus in history have never had a state of their own and hences have no military tradition. They worship goddess Lakhsmi, a Hindu diety of wealth and riches that makes them good traders in which extremist Hindu leader Premier Narinder Modi and his Finance Minister Arun Jaitly have failed too, as the Hindu states economy is in a nose dive. The root of all the troubles is that by and large the Hindus make a corrupt people
