Description About The Author:- Col. Ved Prakash was commissioned into the famed Sikh Regiment of the Infantry, leading fighting arm of the Indian Army in 1957. His first posting was to 3SIKH, when this battalion was actively engaged in fighting the Naga insurgency, then at its peak in the Naga Hills. With 12 years of service he won a competitive vacancy to attend Defence Services Staff College course in1970, an acme of professional excellence for army officers. During his second tenure (1970s) in the North-East, he commanded 18 Assam Rifles battallion in the Mizo Hills. Here are two interesting and significant coincidences: If for his first tenure, his unit was headquartered at Naga leader Phizo's village, Khonoma, in the second his unit was located at Mizo leader Laldenga's village, Lungleh. Thus he not only fought the Naga and Mizo terrorism and insurgencies at their virulent worst but also studied their wider aspects at close quarters.,He also served for two tenures in Jammu and Kashmir, again getting an opportunity to study the Islamist terrorism there. The author took part in the 1962, 1965 and 1971 wars. He was serving at the Army Headquaters, New Delhi when he retired in 1989. The author has been recently awarded by the F R G S by the Royal Geographical Society, London.About The Book:- India Has Experienced The Scourge Of Terrorism Since Its Independence In 1947, When The Naga's Refused To Join The Union. They Were Followed By The Mizo's In The 1960's. Then It Was The Turn Of The Ulfa In Assam. After The North East, Jammu And Kashmir Became Its Victim In 1980's, Followed By The Terrorism In Punjab. From These Two Areas Which Have Been With Dealt Earlier, The Terrorism, Mostly Islamist, Has Spread To The Rest Of India, During The Last Three Decades, Which Has Been Dealt With In This Multi-Volume Book. India Has The Dubious Distinction Of Being The Worst Sufferer Of Terrorism, Next To Iraq And Afghanistan. One Estimate Holds That India Has Had Nearly A Hundred Thousand Casualties From Extremism Of All Varieties. In Spite Of This Enormity, Indian Republic Has Shown Restraint And Balance While Dealing With All Kinds Of Extremists, Separatist, Terrorists, Naxal Et Al. The Resilience Shown By India Has Been Interpreted By Some Observers As Weak-Kneed Response Of A Soft State. Others Assert India Has Not Fashioned A Counter Terrorism Policy Framework To Eradicate These Serious Threat To Its Integrity And Sovereignty. There Are Those Who Feel The Soft Approach Is The Result Of Vote Bank Politics Followed By The Present Government. The Book Deals With All These Issues In Comprehensive Manner. It Is Also A Fact That India Is Too Strong A Nation To Give In To The Destructive And Fissiparous Forces, Represented By These Terrorists And Extremists., About The Author:- Col.
