In February 2019 one of the worst terror attacks on India takes place in Pulwama in Kashmir. Forty Indian soldiers are dead. But when the NIA probes the bombing they hit one dead end after another. Who were the actual masterminds of this audacious strike? It seemed impossible to find out.
In this thrilling and deeply reported book, the award-winning author and journalist Rahul Pandita tells the story of how a team of extraordinary NIA sleuths cracks the case one jigsaw piece at a time. Against all odds, they manage to connect the dots between a seemingly routine troublemaker put in preventive detention at the time of the abrogation of Article 370, a mobile phone full of lustful messages recovered after an encounter that killed a terrorist and the Pulwama attack itself. The sinister roots of the strike, they would discover, are several decades deep and can be traced to one man – Masood Azhar – and the empire of terror he created in Kashmir.
In this book we enter the terrifying world of radical Islamists and secret militant operations, of intelligence agencies and elite counter-terrorism units. With never-before-published details about the Pulwama case, the resultant Balakot strike and the arcane world of terror groups, this is one of the most significant works on Kashmir and terrorism in recent times.

Finished the book in one sitting, almost. It’s a riveting read, fast paced, as if one is on a very smooth slide, gliding on effortlessly. Effortlessly, the gaps and doubts in my mind got plugged. I’ve a 360 view of the ‘terror sponsorship’ in India.
This book could only have been written by a journalist who has dived deep into the subject. Clarity and conciseness are two strong points. If the book were to be a string of pearls, each pearls would be significant and shiny.
Pulwama remains a deep wound on the psyche of india. This book delves into the history, beginning with the 80s, the various Pak sponsored terror attacks. Ends after Pulwama. Abrogation of Article 370, never made more sense than now. Why did we wait this long? Letting a heinous situation keep festering, decades after decades…
The formation and annihilation of various terror outfits- all claiming to be Mujahid/ jihadis (religious fighters), this being the easiest way to brain wash the poverty stricken youth coming to Madarsas (schools teaching Kuran) to study. Given arms, sneaked into India. Killed by the para military forces, before/ after terror attacks on the innocent Indians. "It's a relay. They keep coming. We keep killing.”
Role of the Kashmir political leaders in the blood bath, and how they were ‘in bed’ with the terrorists… How the then Govt and the Indian intelligence agencies messed up. How the locals were assured of ‘merger with Pakistan’ by 2030-2040, hence the terrorists were in no hurry. How locals were terrorised into meek submission.
And, then there are white knights too. The true heroes of the nation. Mr Narendra Dhar Dubey. The brave BSF officer who killed Afzal Guru. And, himself got shred to pieces, having braved a hail of bullets detaching his arm, piercing practically his entire body. And, who not only valiantly fought the terrorists, as a reward he fought for his life for years, in the ICU, barely managing to become functional. Let’s not forget them… My respect. 🇮🇳🙏🏻
