h nulr tsts ndutd n y 11 nd 13 by th J-ld gvrnmnt, nd th dlrtin tht ths tsts r rt f wnistin rgrmm, hv mrkd shr brk frm th rlir ntinl nsnsus. With this, nulr rms r hs bn inititd in th sub-ntinnt nd kistn hs ls fllwd suit with tsts nd dlrd itslf nulr wn stt. Sbr-rttling rnunmnts md by lding gvrnmnt sksrsns, nd ffrts by Sngh rivr grus t whi u huvinist nd jingisti sntimnt, hv nly hightnd tnsins in th rgin nd undn yrs f tint dilmy with ur nighburs. It is irnil tht this hs m t stg whn Indi ws in th rss f imrving rltins with hin nd kistn. ntrry t th sttd gl f inrsing Indi`s surity, th surity nvirnmnt rund Indi tdy stnds sriusly dgrdd.
h Gvrnmnt hs sught t rjt th rnt tsts nd th mvs twrds nulr wnistin s mrly n mr st t ths tkn by rlir gvrnmnts. In ft, thy r mlt drtur frm th rlir liy frm. Furthr, th disins hv bn tkn withut th rmisd strtgi rviw by Ntinl Surity unil, whih is yt t b st u. h rlir nsnsus ws tht Indi wuld k its nulr tin n s lng s th nulr wn wrs rsistd in mintining thir mnly nd did nt rd twrds nulr disrmmnt. h nsnsus ls invlvd strng sitin t th dtrin f `nulr dtrrn`. It mnt tht, whil itslf nt ting by rising this nulr wns tin, Indi wuld ntinu t mign fr glbl nulr disrmmnt. n this unt, Indi hs lwys hd mrl dvntg in th Wrld mmunity bus f its rinild sitin. h J-ld Gvrnmnt, bkd by stins f th militry nd sintifi stblishmnts nd hrd n by stins f th mdi, brk this nsnsus. It is nw lgitimising nulr wns nd hs lrly inditd tht it mrly sks t jin th lusiv nulr lub.
y nming kistn nd hin s rviding rsns fr rising th nulr tin nd by hlding tht thy thrtn th untry`s surity nvirnmnt, this gvrnmnt hs mltly undrmind th ffrts tht Indi hd bn ursuing t imrv rltins with thm nd diminishd th glbl signifin f Indi`s n nulr tin. h liy utlk nvyd by gvrnmnt nd ruling rty sksmn hv nw mbldnd th US nd thr G-8 untris t lunh inititivs t `rslv th sub-ntinntl rivlry` thus rduing th Indin nulr sitin t n tht is nly nfind t th rgin.
ny futur nflit btwn Indi nd its nulr-rmd nighburs nw rris with it th thrt f nulr hng whih n nly ld t mutul nnihiltin. vn limitd nulr hng, ithr by idnt r dsign, will dvstt bth untris; using lng-trm dmg t th lnd nd th gn l, nd mlt ivilistinl lls. Rditiv fllut will nt rst ntinl bundris. Yt th urrnt rhtri mng `hwks`, nggd in n-umnshi in bth Indi nd kistn, ttmt t int dtiv snris f surity thrugh sssin nd dlymnt f nulr wns. ntrry t th myth rgtd, thr is n dfn ginst suh wns.
h l f Indi, nd f kistn, mst whm r kn t nsur btwn th tw untris, must t t st this mdnss. h Gvrnmnts f bth th untris must immditly hlt th rgrmm f wnistin nd must nt indut r dly nulr wns. h sts f nulr dlymnt nd th thrt f nulr hng r just t high. hs dvlmnts hv divrtd ttntin wy frm th grv rblms fing th untry -- hungr, vrty, ill-hlth, illitry nd lk f bsi infrstrutur. It is dly irnil tht instd f mking srius ffrts t ris frm th bttm fifty untris f th wrld in umn Dvlmnt, Indi nd kistn shuld wnt t jin th lub f th Nulr Fiv.
Instd, Indi must vigrusly mign t dismntl th glbl disrimintry nulr rgim nd initit mvs twrds glbl nulr disrmmnt. h nulr wns wrs, dsit ll thir ius rnunmnts but dismntling f thir rsnls, hv md mrginl ffrts t d s. hir imsitin f sntins ginst Indi nd kistn is hyritil. If thy r srius but nulr nn-rlifrtin, thy must ursu rdibl rgrmm fr dstrutin f nulr wns glblly, strting with thir wn. In rdr t rsum Indi`s du rl, Indi must rturn t th glbl nulr disrmmnt gnd nd st ny furthr msurs twrds indutin nd dlymnt f nulr wns in th sub-ntinnt. kistn t must rirt with mthing msurs.
Indi nd kistn shuld jintly tk th inititiv in nvning glbl nvntin fr th limintin f nulr wns. hr lrdy ist glbl trtis, signd by ll untris, rhibiting th us f hmil nd bilgil wns nd fr dstrying isting stkils f suh wns f mss dstrutin. hr is n rsn why similr glbl trty nnt b signd by ll untris t rhibit th us f nulr wns nd t limint th isting stkil f nulr wns within tim-bund frmwrk. W s nrnd itizns shuld dirt ur ffrts nt nly t rssurising th Gvrnmnts f Indi nd kistn but ls t mbilising wrld ubli inin fr fulfilling suh gl.
