India demilitarize Siachen; Porkis & Chinkis makes a link-up & we will enjoy another war(Siachen or Sino-indian) due to wise-intelligent political decisions. So NOOOOOOOO....

No. Not until they stop bleeding india through militancy.

No. So many people died in 26/11 and before, their backers are still unaccounted. Why worry if they bleed in Siachen? Rather spend some more to reduce our casualties over there.

I would say, We should always keep a post there and try to improve the infra with science and tech, better management of resources, better machine etc, But If Pak is ready to do everything in Black and white and mark everything on ground and accept it internationally, It is a possibility.

No - Absolutely no way. Having verified their mendacity, we are unable to trust them. With apologies to President Reagan.

Ranjit Nambiar said...

A moral imperative to say NO - All these gentlemen died in 1999 as a result of the revulsive & dishonourable behaviour of an untrustworthy and disrespectable enemy. A very incomplete list but I have drawn names which reflect a cross section of of our great secular democratic republic: Capt Vikram Batra, Captain Haneef-ud-din, Lt. Colonel Vishwanathan, Major Rajesh Singh Adhikari, Major Sonam Wangchuk, Lt. Kieshing Clifford Nongrum, Lt. N. Kenguruse, Naik Digendra Kumar, Lt. Manoj Kumar Pandey, Squadron Leader Ajay Ahuja, Flight Lieutenant S. Muhilan, Naik Chaman Singh, Naik Birendra Singh Lamba, Major Manoj Talwar, Rifleman Bachhan Singh, Rifleman Jasvir Singh, Lance Naik Ghulam Mohammed Khan, Naik Sumer Singh Rathore, Naik Sunil Kumar Singh, Naik Subedar Nageshwar Mahato, Captain Amol Kalia, Sepoy R. Selva Kumar...and the list goes on. Say yes GoI and you have done great souls a great disrespect and purchased present emotional acclaim with future Indian blood, and I for one till my last breath will remind you then that you were unworthy holders of great offices of state.

NO

Anonymous said...

I say yes, but with some strings attached. Though we can bleed Pakistan by saying NO, but we too bleed, though not as bad as the Pakistanis. The ones who say No, should also be the ones prepared to bleed for that NO. I am not the one who accepts loss of lives for Indians, just so that we can assure that Pakistanis lose a lot more. To me the best option is no loss on either side. Any blood and money we lose in Siachen could be put to better use for our own good. Therefore I say yes, but any violations of such demilitarization should be met with more than proportional force. This is where I think our babus fail us, time and again. And, this is what is suspect is the reason for some of the NO responses you see here.

No. We will loose a handle in negotiation with them.

Earlier we made a mistake by accepting Tibet to be a part of China without making settlement of boundary a pre-condition.

Teewsbby said...

No, India should not. They have held our territory, why should we abdicate our advantage now without getting something in return? No, never.

Rajarshi said...

No. Till the time Pakistan remains a tinderbox - neither stable nor completely failed. In other words, as long as the Army and Mullahs call the real shots. Now, since this looks pretty much an irreversible thing, it means the answer is a resounding NO - Not now and (probably) Never.

No way, in fact get more of advantage heights. Somebody as idiot as Nehru can only say, 'Not a blade of grass grows there therefore vacate or no harm losing them. Somebody should have told him strategy for National Defense is not in totality governed by only agricultural potential of land but by long term defense strategy of access and denial of resources, land, sea etc etc. Any foolish thing done now camouflaged as smart move, just for instant public appeal will be counterproductive. It can only be allowed if decision makers are made to pay heavily for any loss later.

NO, can`t trust pakis. Remember Kargil.

Anonymous said...

no, why this fertile idea being put on the platter to our born adversary?

going out to offer so much as a big brother not at the cost of national interest. Pak has never generated the TRUST to be so generous.

So, lets not have even a referandum on such vital issues, why vote then?????

as regards daily wastage of casualty at both ends, will somebody recall the yr 1984 chilling experience when our warriors scaled / surmounted such extremely difficult terrains to flutter the national pride.

Tomorrow, somebody will coin the idea, lets give Kashmir (across Banihal) to Pak or as an independent country? and have peace, Cost??????

Hell no they are trying the same tactics as Kargil

cosmicwarrior said...

Having served in Siachen I am biased. so here it is:
a) No demilitarisation
b) Return PoK

I'll pose a counter question. Should we attack and free what we call POK and make it really AZAAD ???
Are we FREAKING MAD !!! to be even discussing this !!! ???

Go report this poll findings to your Nobel aspiring master (yes the same poeple who were spouting out the line of succession BS and now this mountain of peace BS.

NO..the pakis are pathological liars & not trustworthy.We must bleed them until they can no longer afford to wage war against us, proxy or otherwise.I have 2 family members serving in forward areas in combat operations who share the same view.

Pradyot Dhulipala said...

This is honestly not the best forum to conduct such a poll. The fact that a person is on your website, indicates they care about defence affairs, which also implies (though not directly), they have hawkish tendancies.
I agree Pakistan can't be trusted. But if we stick with that argument, there can never be peace between India and Pakistan. Maybe like the Israel-Arab, conflict there is no resolution, till one side decides it has had enough and gives up.

YES of-course.
De-militarization of Siachen can definitely be considered.

BUT ONLY AFTER ACHIEVING A PREREQUISITE BEFORE THAT: COMPLETE DE-MILITARIZATION OF ENTIRE PAKISTAN.
