This week in The Roundtable we take a look at the life of real heroes of our country, i.e., our defence forces. It’s been days since the recent curfew situation in J&K went out of hand. Armed Forces are not even able to help.But who is to be blamed?
In this episode, we try to focus on the recent situation of J&K, importance of Armed forces in the country and the solution for the current situation.
Do we support the stone-throwing mob and curse the Armed Forces or do we simply let them do their tasks? Why do we use the Armed Forces as our punching bags whenever we can’t handle any given bearings? Why is the sympathy of social activists always with the protestors and not with our soldiers whenever any such protests takes place?
To discuss all this we have Rajeev Chandrasekhar, MP & Member of Defence Standing Committee/Founder of Flags of Honour Foundation; Dr John Dayal, Human Rights Activist; Commodore (Retd.) Uday Bhaskar, Strategic Affairs Expert & Director of Society of Policy Studies; & Madhav Das Nalapat, Editorial Director of The Sunday Guardian in conversation with Priya Sahgal, Senior Executive Editor of NewsX.
