VA? What we have got has to be distributed among five brothers and our mother. “Ours is a branch with just a manager and a cashier.” says Sonagara, on Wednesday.(Source: Reuters) Top News This Eid-ul-Azha Taliban commander Hibatullah Akhundzada spoke to his men as a victorious general not a hunted fugitive “Now” he said “as we have control over many areas of the country it is the time that we should reap the fruits of the 15-year-long jihad and implement objectives of jihad which are: implementation of the divine sharia on the land of Allah; to establish justice; maintain stability and security; to protect frontiers and defend the life property honour and all other God-given rights of the countrymen” Fifteen years ago today in the days after 9/11 Akhundzada then the chief justice of the Taliban Emirate’s savage religious courts had been preparing to flee across the border into Pakistan along with many of the students of the jihadist madrassa in Kandahar that he administered For him as for others in the Taliban vengeance has been slow in coming—but perhaps sweeter as a consequence Today when Afghanistan’s President Muhammad Ashraf Ghani lunched with Prime Minister Narendra Modi the two leaders’ discussions centred on devising a strategy to roll back the Taliban’s perpetual-motion war machine paid for by narcotics driven by a toxic ideology and powered by Pakistan’s military It isn’t clear though how much India can do There’s an even more fundamental problem: it isn’t clear what exactly needs to be done This much is clear: the new news from Afghanistan is not good Three of Afghanistan’s 34 provincial capitals—Tarin Kot in Uruzgan Lashkar Gah in Helmand and Kunduz—are under direct Taliban siege The Government admits nine districts of the country’s 398—Now Zad Musa Qala Bagran and Dishu in Helmand; Warduj and Yamgan in Badakhshan; Kohistanat district in Sar-i Pul; Nawa in Ghazni; and Khak Afghan in Zabul Forty more it says are “heavily contested” Independent estimates paint an even more bleak picture suggesting 39 districts have fallen and another 43 are being fought over New Delhi’s generous civilian assistance programme—scholarships medical assistance rural empowerment programmes—have won it friends throughout Afghanistan The gains that are made by day though are as it were by night undone In large swathes of the country this means government has all but vanished In a thoughtful analysis written this month Afghan Analysts Network researcher Lola Cecchinel wrote that the government’s influence in the Kunduz districts of Dasht-e Archi and Chahrdara had all but vanished with civil servants abandoning their positions and retreating to areas with substantial police concentrations In their place Taliban had set up full fledged parallel administrations The Taliban like elsewhere in Afghanistan had proved adroit in using local communal grievances to bolster its position—for example ethnic Pashtun resentments against the mainly-Uzbek élite in Dasht-e Archi Ghani believes Indian military assistance can play a role in tipping the balance—and the government in New Delhi’s shown willingness to respond training large numbers of officers and providing second-hand helicopter gunships and light transport helicopters New Delhi is also considering handing over decommissioned 105mm mountain artillery bridge-laying equipment and trucks Put another way Ghani wants to keep doing what Afghanistan has been doing this past decade—just with a little more bang in its arsenal Even a doubling or tripling of Indian aid however won’t fix the Afghan army’s problems Its 350000 soldiers—who include some 150000 ill-trained police—just aren’t enough to secure a decisive victory over the Taliban India for example needed 325000 troops—not counting paramilitary forces and central police—to subdue terrorism in 100000 square km of Jammu and Kashmir Afghanistan has fewer numbers for its 662225 square km much of which isn’t connected by road Put simply there’s just no way a defensive war against Taliban insurgents can succeed: that end needs more troops than can conceivably become available and more resources than anyone is willing to commit President Ghani and Prime Minister Modi know the big problem here is Pakistan For years now Afghan leaders have been demanding Pakistan crack down on the Taliban who operate with impunity from its cities The much-vaunted Afghanistan-India-United States diplomatic axis is among a number of efforts meant to push Pakistan in that direction There’s good reason to suspect though that this high-diplomatic manoeuvring will amount to nothing Islamabad has refused to act against the Taliban because it is in its best interests not to do so Pakistan’s military sees the Taliban as allies who protect the country from its affiliates and partners notably al-Qaeda and some factions of the Tehreek-e-Taliban United States of America diplomats have become increasingly frustrated with Pakistan’s conduct—but there’s no stomach in Washington for actions that would punish the Pakistani state for its complicity with terror No one wants to risk weakening a state with nuclear weapons: hideous as the status-quo is western leaders see it as preferable to all the other options Lawrence Freedman the great scholar of war defined strategy as “being about maintaining a balance between ends ways and means; about identifying objectives; and about the resources and methods available for meeting such objectives” President Ghani and Prime Minister Modi know the end they seek: a Pakistan that cannot continue to sponsor transnational terrorism They both however lack ways and means; the West’s unwillingness to coerce Pakistan is matched by India’s own concerns about seeking to do so for fear of sparking off a war that might end up costing more than it would secure Afghanistan for its part simply has no weapons in its arsenal to decisively influence Pakistani behaviour The long war that began on 9/11 it appears likely is certain to remain mired in stalemate for many years to come—only this stalemate is not still its relentless march fuelled each day by human blood For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Top News It was a nationally televised programme and everybody heard him making many promises…” For all the latest India News, Bimla Devi says, Kesri Sinh, WATCH VIDEO:? 2017 10:58 am Former West Bengal Governor?
