    by timesnowonline

    This morning India cremated Lance Nayak Sudhakar Singh one of our brave soldiers killed in the most brutal, barbaric manner by Pakistani forces. India has demanded answers but all we've got from Pakistan is open arrogance not once, but repeatedly. Since the 2003 ceasefire agreement India has been betrayed by Pakistan time and again and the frequency of these violations is only increasing. There's anger over these repeated transgressions by Pakistan as well as allegations that the Indian state is going soft. The time has come to draw the red line vis a vis Pakistan.In a debate moderated by TIMES NOW's Editor-in-Chief Arnab Goswami, panelists -- Dr Chandan Mitra, MP, Rajya Sabha, BJP & Editor-in-Chief, The Pioneer; Maroof Raza, Strategic Affairs Analyst; Lt Gen( Retd) Nirbhay Sharma, Former Co-Commander Kashmir; Col (Retd)V N Thapar, Father of late Capt Vijayant Thapar; Major General ( Retd) Rashid Qureshi, Former Spokesperson to Musharraf; Najam Rafique, Director, Americas Institute of Strategic Studies; Brig (Retd) Javed Hussain, Former Pakistan Army Special Forces officer; Tariq Azim, Former Information Minister, Pakistan discuss whether If Indians are mortared, civilians are killed, should we not even expect our forces to fire back?
