In the mid-1980s alone, Israel tried on three separate occasions to interest India in a joint attack on Kahuta, the nuclear plant in north-east Pakistan. They wanted bases in Western India to launch their F-16s on Kahuta.
Nice fantasy story. In 1980s, Pakistan was one of the most important bases against Soviet, especially the only corridor of supplying western weapons to those Afghanistan fighters. On the other hand, India was the defaco ally of Soviet. How stupid Israel would be to attack Pakistan nuclear plant with India. Pakistan's nuclear program was permitted by US under the table.

But as usual, the Cong chickened out as it didn't have the balls to go ahead. If Modi was at the helm, the attack would most probably have been carried out.
No, Modi is not that stupid.

Fantasy story? Really? America never 'permitted' Pak to pursue its nuke program. They just turned a blind eye to it. Secondly, Israel had nothing to do with Indo-Soviet relations. Israel's relations with India were independent from that of US relations with India too. Do you know the amount of ordnance that was supplied by Israel to India in the 1965 and 71 wars against Pak? If your logic is correct, then that would not have been possible since India was an ally of the Soviets. Did the US put a spoke in the wheel? No!! Similarly it did not when Israel planned to take out Kahuta from Indian bases.

According to The Asian Age, journalists Adrian Levy and Catherine Scott-Clark stated in their book Deception: Pakistan, the US and the Global Weapons Conspiracy, the Israeli Air Force was to launch an air attack on Kahuta in the mid-1980s from Jamnagar airfield in Gujarat. Using satellite pictures and intelligence information, Israel built a full-scale mock-up of Kahuta facility in the Negev Desert where pilots of F-16 and F-15 squadrons practiced mock attacks.

In March 1984, Prime Minister Indira Gandhi signed off on the Israeli-led operation bringing India, Pakistan and Israel to within a hair's breadth of a nuclear conflagration. However, she backed out at the last moment.


McNair's paper #41 published by USAF Air University (India Thwarts Israeli Destruction of Pakistan's "Islamic Bomb") also confirmed this plan. It said, "Israeli interest in destroying Pakistan's Kahuta reactor to scuttle the 'Islamic bomb' was blocked by India's refusal to grant landing and refuelling rights to Israeli warplanes.

Geopolitics is not as simple and straightforward as you make it out to be. It ain't a zero sum game. It's a world of cloak and daggers.

And was Modi that stupid to give the go-ahead for the surgical strike and the massive air raid deep into Pak territory to destroy Balakot? No!

Bharat ratna for what ? literally what great he did for nation is this a joke in the same way ik gurjal should also get.
Bharat Ratna for being a CONgi stalwart and paving the way for Indira Gandhi to come into power.
Nishan-E-Pakistan for pulling the plug off Operation Kahuta and divulging the identities of RAW agents involved in it.
