Pentagon Press, 2010 - Islamic fundamentalism - 452 pages
Pakistan's sincerity in dealing with terrorists operating from its soil has always been a subject of speculation. As India prepares for some serious stocktaking on the first anniversary of the 26/11 attacks, concerns remain about the possibility of similar terrorist attacks being launched from Pakistan in the future. Amir Mir shows in his book how Talibanisation began with Gen Zia-ul-Haq and continued to flourish even under the man who joined the US-led war against terror-General Musharraf. Describing the terror outfits-particularly those involved in Jammu & Kashmir and elsewhere in India-as the `civilian face of the Pakistani army`, Mir acknowledges how the current situation in Pakistan is a direct result of Islamabad using terrorism as a foreign policy tool to deal with India and in its quest for geo-strategic depth in the region.
