AFSPA is only for Indian army and their ops, CRPF and state police don’t get protection under AFSPA.

Once APSPA is removed, all ops will be portrayed as human rights violations by police and CRPF. with that fear in mind, their ops will only reduce over a period of time. Just like “human rights violations narrative” is used in Naxal areas.

Yo,
The army people are not devoid of awareness in the technological realm, the future solely belongs to network centric warfare and Artificial intelligence
But how come it is not yet integrated into the services

Was going through the below document.
https://www.stimson.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/TheWellingtonExperience-SA-100820-WEB.pdf

Seemed quite interesting description.

Any thoughts on the below statement in page 158 form the above doc.

And although Pakistani officers also have not seen high-intensity combat since 1971, two entire generations of the Pakistan Army’s younger officers have spent virtually their entire professional lives fighting a skilled and determined foe in the western part of the country. Not only have these junior and midlevel officers learned combat leadership skills, the Pakistan Army for the first time has a truly professional noncommissioned officer corps.
Similar study by the same author on Pakistan is present in the below doc.
