LONDON: A former Indian military official  has commended the Pakistan Army’s media wing Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) for adopting outstanding strategy in the domain of hybrid warfare.

Speaking at the International Institute of Strategic Studies in UK, Lt Gen (retd) Syed Ata Husnain acknowledged that ISPR outclassed the Indian army in information war saying: “I want to give full marks to the ISPR for the information strategy it has played out”.

The ex-general,  who had also served as the corps commander in IoK, said that  ISPR brilliantly performed its work for Pakistan by ensuring detailed alienation of Kashmiris against Indian armed forces, adding, “If anyone has ever taught us [India] about the information operation it was the ISPR… it has done an outstanding job.”

He accused Modi government for the  Pulwama suicide attack in occupied Kashmir, saying he was aware of the fact that the Pulwama-like incident was inevitable due to the Indian government’s lack of understanding of the conflict.

 Ata Husnain said that the Indian army had made a lot of strategic mistakes in 30 years but one of major blunder was to consider the military actions as a psychological war.

According to the retired general, the youth’s mammoth funeral procession was a cause of rising extremism among Kashmiris, adding that use of force could not solve the Kashmir dispute.
