The govt in J&K has bowed to the demands of Sikh protesters who want to celebrate Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale as their Sant:
And on the heels of the massacre of army jawans in Manipur, now suddenly another attack in Arunachal Pradesh:
As per my previous post mentioning Jagganathan's article, it's not hard to imagine that various insurgencies (Khalistan, NorthEast, etc) could be reviving again as part of Pak-China collusion, now that the Chinese patron is seeing India as an increasing threat due to the 'Look East' policy.
Hopefully the govt will avoid any major blunders, and will even rope in allied powers to put a check on overseas sponsorship. Unlike the 1980s when the Cold War was peaking, at least this time the interests of US, UK, Canada should tilt differently.
During the 1980s, when Cold War proxy Pak faced a 2-front threat (Soviet Army on Afghan border, Indian Army on Indian border) they naturally chose to tie down the Indian side by fomenting multiple insurgencies in India (Khalistan, Kashmir, NorthEast, Naxalites, etc). Likewise, now that China is facing a more assertive India on one side and a growing South China Sea conflict on the other side, Beijing may similarly see benefit in tying down the Indian side by the same insurgency-support strategy that worked so effectively for Pak in the past.
Finally, if China does take a serious turn towards fomenting insurgency in India - even indirectly via Pak - then we should be willing to return the favour right back to them, because we'd have nothing to lose. The Chinese have yet to learn the lessons of Westphalianism.
