Default What’s To Be Done With Our Cops?

Indian policing commentary, not with an insurgency focus, by an Indian SME and here is a telling phrase:
Quote:
No wonder our police force has become a pressure cooker about to burst.

Default A problem shared: CT agencies ovetaken by the terrorists?

Indian commentary, not with an insurgency focus, on the problems faced by CT agencies, by an Indian SME. This phrase would apply elsewhere:
Quote:
The most worrying aspect of global terrorism is that individuals who are already on the CT machinery radar are seen committing carnage....is our counter-terrorist architecture flexible enough to match or surpass the exponential thinking of terrorists?

Default Back to insurgency

Thanks to a "lurker" a pointer to book recommended by a SME:
Quote:
..there are very good books: On Naxalism: The best book I would recommend is Prakash Singh’s (He was Director General of Police, BSF) “The Naxalite Movement in India”. He is my batch mate in the I.P.S. That will give you the background. Several others had also written including me on this subject. If you read Economic & Political Weekly you will find good articles from the citizens’ perspective. The best book on Punjab insurgency is Mr. Julio Ribeiro’s “Bullet for Bullet”. Mr.Ribeiro was the fist DGP, Punjab to tackle Punjab insurgency, followed by Mr.K.P.S.Gill who has also written a book. One of the best commentators on North East is Mr. Sanjoy Hazarika, a former New York Times correspondent. He has written a book “Writing on the Wall”. His pieces appear in the Hindu.

Default Clerical role in Salafi jihad

As I explain here: https://politicalviolenceataglance.o...hadist-groups/, countering clerical influence will form the basis for defeating the global Islamist threat.
