ISLAMABAD – Indian premier Lal Bahadur Shashtri wanted to gain popularity from 1965 Indo-Pakistan war due to his unpopularity in India, written by Kuldeep Nayar in his autobiography.
The author and leadership development expert, Dr Naeem Mushtaq, has reviewed the Urdu translation of Kuldeep Nayar’s book titled Aik Zindagi Kafi Nahi.
Kuldeep Nayar is the veteran journalist from India and the original title of his book in English read as ‘Beyond the Lines – Autobiography by Kuldeep Nayar’.
Reviewing the book, Dr Naeem told the viewers that most interesting portions of the book were where Nayar described historical facts about 1965 war fought between India and Pakistan.
Citing some of the paragraphs, Dr Naeem said “The then Indian premier wanted to improve personal popularity at the cost of the war which eventually happened.”
Dr Naeem further described that when once Nayar encountered the then Indian Army chief General Joyanto Nath Chaudhuri to find out the actual reason of slow response to Pakistan in 1965 war, he said “We wanted Pakistan to use as much of their arsenal as they could so that we could have a psychological advantage on them.”
Dr Naeem dedicated his book review to the social media page of Pakistan Army citing its efforts to bring a right image of Pakistan Armed forces. He also expressed hope that the official facebook page of Pakistan Army would share this review.
