Sir, Most of the political parties have advocated stepping up of the diplomatic effort to bring international pressure on Pakistan to rein in the terrorists.
Such pressures, however, have limitations of sustainability, intensity and genuineness.
Can India afford to fully bank on this course of action? It is now clear more than ever before that unless cross-border terrorism is stopped, a political solution to the Kashmir peace process would remain a dream with the daily loss of life.
If the aim is to find a political answer to the vexed Kashmir problem, a sovereign country like India should seriously consider the option of use of force.
Cross-border firings and provocations by Pakistan should be declared a hostile act a la 1971 and India should implement its right to react in a manner it thinks fit.
