This is an analytical account of the entire operational history of the Indian Air Force (IAF). Within five years of its creation, the fledgling Flights of No 1 Squadron was undergoing trials by fire in the NWFP. During World War II, the IAF expanded ninefold and made valiant contributions in turning the tide of Japanese onslaught. Hardly had the guns fallen silent across the globe and India emerged independent breaking the centuries old yoke of colonialism, once again the IAF was called into operations in the Jammu and Kashmir war in 1947–48.The IAF was at its innovative best in the unchartered virgin territory of Himalayan heights. In its eighty-year history, the IAF has also operated in a counter-insurgency role on many occasions.

Book Description Lancer Publishers, 2013. Hardcover. Condition: New. Exodus of Kashmiri Pandits from Kashmir in 1989 was their seventh such exodus since the arrival of Islam in Kashmir in the fourteenth century. This was precipitated by the outbreak of Pakistan-sponsored insurgency across Kashmir Valley in 1989. The radical Islamists targeted Pandits - a minuscule community in Muslim dominated society creating enormous fear, panic and grave sense of insecurity. In the face of ruthless atrocities inflicted on them, the Pandits? sole concern was ensuring their own physical safety and their resolve not to convert to Islam. Over 350,000 Kashmiri Pandits were forced to flee en masse leaving their home and hearth. This was the single largest forced displacement of people of a particular ethnicity after partition of India. Pandits? travails did not end with the exodus. The obstructive and intimidating attitude of the State administration towards the Pandit refugees made their post-exodus existence even more miserable. The Government at the Centre too remained indifferent to their plight. This book traces the Pandits? economic and political marginalization in the State over the past six decades and covers in detail the events that led to their eventual exodus. In the light of ethnic cleansing of Pandits from the Valley, the book also examines some critical issues so crucial to India?s survival as a multi-cultural, liberal and secular democracy.
