If India needs to be reckoned as regional power then they will reply back with nukes. Sometimes you have to take hard steps to avoid future problems. If we don't do it, no country will take us as important military power if we can protect our citizens or reply back with nukes
And in less time, escalation may reach to its maximum. Just wish that Pakistan never uses its nukes first and war stops before condition arrives, IF war begins.
Look beyond war, that's what is needed.
India bombs Pakistan , Pakistan bombs India , both countries wiped out would become the laughing stock of the rest of the world , specially those who so badly want a war between us so that they could sale their weapons. Get a life warmongers !
Hey why don't India and Pakistan do a little experiment? Build a joint power reactor right smack at the border. Commission it and then let it go haywire. Later they can both try to bring it back under control, and by the time they do, they'll experience nuclear fallout first hand. I'm sure, after the dust settles all war-mongers (on both sides) will be sent packing!
China has enough fissile material or made about 3000 nukes.
The US has about 10 000 ready plus ????? fissile material.
Russia 13 000 war heads.
It became mostly (and rightfully) a political negotiating card, so no one could impose his will on another, and it is in the case of India vs Pakistan as well.

It would be lot better to discuss the actual message of the article instead of this pointless discussion revolving around that one line. I think this statement wasn't even necessary in actual article and hardly makes any contribution to the actual point author was trying to make that why India won't attack Pakistan.
But then who needs a cut and dried doctrine with inflexible redlines and robotic adherence! As long as we can keep these weapons well tucked away, not dangle them for the ends that they cannot achieve, and take a long time priming them; the Subcontinent could do without the nuclear dogma.
Neither India nor Pakistan has ever tested anything above 50kt.
2: Offer them money to volunteer to take part in an "event" with key note speakers , Bharat Verma and Zaid Hamid.
3: Transport all of them to a nuclear test tunnel , lodge all of them warmongers.
4: Explode a nuclear device.
Its a win win situation , you know warmongers will get their "Nuclear Umbrella" fantasy & others will achieve long lasting peace.
