Developments in Indian Missile Program: Options for Pakistan
Policy Perspectives (2018)

Abstract
With the induction of new weapon systems in South Asia, notably BMDs, the region would gradually become prone to the risk of war mainly due to unresolved disputes like Kashmir. The sporadic events of violence and state terrorism in Indian Held Kashmir, witnessed in the past few months, pose serious threat to the world population. Due to mutual hostility and suspicion, role of international community, especially major powers, would remain critical in facilitating the bilateral peace between the South Asian nuclear rivals. Failing which, the possibility of a nuclear exchange in South Asia would increase thus keeping the whole population of the region hostage to the threat of nuclear war.
