Is India a SOFT COUNTRY ?


BY: DR. T.K. JAIN
AFTERSCHO☺OL

Every country has to have


certain priorities, and
certain policies. These
create a distinct image of
that country. China was not
fool when it constructed
huge wall all around itself
thousands of years back. It
is one of the fundamental roles of governments to
ensure safety, security, peace and order. If they have
budget, the first amount should go for ensuring a
safe and secure place for the citizens. If the
governments cant ensure a safe and secure nation,
that government is futile government. We should
also understand the motives of our neighboring
countries. We must help our neighbors in their

economic, political and social development, and we


must ensure that our neighbors are able to adopt
democracy, good policies and move in right
directions. If we can have trade and economic
transactions with our neighboring countries, it would
add to benefit for both. We must promote economic
and culture exchanges. These are all good and
helpful for us. However, being too liberal and having
no firm policies can be misleading. It is not a mark of
our love for peace, but it only shows our lack of
administration. We must have tight security across
the borders. We must seal our borders and ensure
that there is no illegal infiltration. We must build
walls – (like China wall) because internal security and
protection is the first job of every government.

We must deploy appropriate forces and establish


systems which can ensure that unauthorized persons
don’t enter our country. Infiltrator must be
punished. There must be focus on security, peace,
brotherhood, but at the same time, we must have a
sound system of administration, and we must clearly
lay down our rules and regulations. Allowing

neighboring countries to support militant activities in


our country is our weakness and cannot be excused.
We must be firm enough with those bodies, which
engage in anti-national activities. We have also not
been able to present our case strongly and firmly
about terrorism supported by our neighboring
countries. We must be able to take strong diplomatic
steps at least. War is not the solutions, but raising
your voice strongly and firmly is equally important.

We must be assertive, bold and straightforward in


our foreign policy. Our softness and liberalness
should not be construed as our weakness. We must
take firm steps and boost up our administrative
systems and ensure that we have a truly stringent
and rigorous administrative setup.

WE ORGANISED A GROUP DISCUSSION ON THIS


ISSUE AND THE VIEWS OF THE PARTICIPANTS ARE
PRESENTED HERE :

P: Yes, India is a soft country. There are lots of


foreign nationals (from the neighboring countries)
are coming to our country – without any visa,
without any registration and without any
permission. They get jobs here and settle down here.
They use natural resources of this country – without
knowledge to the government.

P2: India has a soft foreign policy, because we have


commitment to Buddhist and Gandhian ideology. As
we talk about India’s strategy towards its
neighboring countries, India has released over 80000
soldiers captured (who crossed our borders), but
India failed to get its own soldiers released. I believe
that this policy is not a drawback. Permanent
solutions to issues can’t come by fighting. The only
solution is through love. Keeping a soft strategy is
beneficial to our country and to the region. India is

today recognized for its peace-ful strategy. Thus our


strategy is not wrong. If we look at the US strategy,
they have attacked Iraq, but the problem remains
unresolved. We have all the modern armory, but we
don’t want to use these for wars. There are lots of
problems and the solution is always in peaceful
negotiations.

P: let us take the recent problems in Pakistan; we


know that Pakistan is creating problems for India.
We are providing lots of facilities to the people from
Pakistan. If we want to go to other countries, it is not
easy. But if someone wants to come to our country,
it is very easy. You can find a large number of
citizens coming from neighboring countries – who
have taken admission in our country. India should
not be so soft. This is the reason for our problems.
Last year, we found that there were some students
from neighboring countries were involved in
immoral activities. They were spoiling our culture.
There are also instances, where students from
neighboring countries have been found to be

engaged in illegal activities. So we should not be so


soft.

R: I think that it is our inability to deal with our


issues. We have not been strong enough. Everyone
takes us for ride. It is not just a small matter. It is an
important issue. Everyone knows that India is a soft
country. Every country takes India for granted. The
softness comes not from lack of power, but from
lack of decision making ability. We have adopted the
ideology of Lord Buddha, Lord Mahaveer and Gandhi
ji; we don’t have strong will power. Indian politicians
are also following these tactics. They are interested
in vote bank. They are not interested in long terms
issues in our country. We will be trapped in
problems. We have allowed terrorists free entry into
our country with our liberal policies.

P: flexibility can sustain, in comparison to rigidity.


Rigid structure does not survive. Flexibility helps you
to survive. There are aspects, which are keeping us
behind – but you will find that every country is facing
some or other problem. The solution is not in taking

tough action. We should continue flexibility in our


strategy, and we should build our image in the world
for our Panchsheel philosophy and non-violent
nation. The wars of 65,71 and Kargil problems were
all such situations, when we were forced to take
arms. If we start taking action for each and every
minor matter, it is dangerous for both our neighbors
and for us. This will not help us.

P: it is true that the whole world is facing problems


of terrorists. There are a small group of terrorist
organizations but in the case of India, anti national
activities have been sponsored by our neighboring
countries. Those countries which are strong, and
firm, don’t allow unauthorized civilians – have been
able to curb terrorist activities. So we should take
lessons from these and we should not be so soft. Our
neighboring countries are creating problems for us.
We know that a well settled and well intended
person would not visit other countries (other than
for tourism purpose). There are issues that we must
probe – why people are coming from neighboring
countries to our country.

P2: we are a developing county and we have many


aspects regarding our foreign policy. We have been
taking actions for our problems. We should have
flexibility in our policy if it is emergency, it is a
different issue, otherwise, we should adopt liberal
and peace oriented policy. Wars are the worst things
that we can face.

P: a lot of imported items are coming through


borders; it is causing lots of losses to our customs
department. There are lots of losses to our tax
collection department. Neighboring countries are
sponsoring regional, anti – national forces in our
country – which are using militant practices. We
know that in most of the neighboring states in our
country, we have problems. Any country can come
and create problems in our country.

R: India has a bloody history. We always had fights,


bloodshed in our country for the last 500 years.
Aggression, fight and lust of power have always
degenerated our country. People invaded our

country for its money, wealth and resources. We


have wasted our capabilities in internal wars, in-
fighting and have never been able to give a strong
reply to the offenders.

P: India has a golden history. The foreign invaders


adopted our culture and got immersed in our
society. Moghals respected our culture and became
part and parcel of our nation. Fight for wealth is a
part of life. There were examples – where invaders
misused our liberal policies. There is nothing like
best policy. Flexibility + strictness, liberalness +
strictness only can give you a good policy.

P: our neighboring countries are not friendly if you


are in Europe, there is a very good system – they
have common currency, you can travel across the
globe – you can use their systems – which are very
well structured. They have created a friendly
neighborhood- which helps in economic and social
prosperity. There soft policies can be adopted. In our
case, we have found that our neighbors have always
created problems. When the East India Company

came to our country to trade, we adopted very soft


and liberal policies, but later we realized that we
were cheated.

R: if we talk about terrorists activities – we find that


they have taken so many cases – when they
jeopardized our reputation. We had to exchange
dreaded terrorists against hijacked persons. We had
to release many terrorists. We have played with our
security.

P2: it is the fault in our implementation. We have


not been able to implement our policies with
compassion. Due to corruption and bureaucracy, we
didn’t have proper implementation of our policies.
We do have the best international relation policies.
World over we are recognized for our policies.
