  1. In a bid to end gender bias in the armed forces, Supreme Court on Monday ordered the Indian Army to grant permanent commission to women officers within three months, kicking aside the stereotypes that women are just meant to sit at home. Slamming the centre for not complying with the High Court as well as Supreme Court orders, the apex court said that the permanent commission will apply to all women officers irrespective of their years of service. © BCCL In addition to that, in its landmark verdict, the Supreme Court also ordered that the terms of appointment for women officers will be the same as male officers. Marking a milestone in gender parity, SC not only rejected Centreâs appeal against the Delhi High Courtâs order but also elaborated that reasons such as âphysiological featuresâ and other reasons are only perpetuating and giving rise to gender stereotypes. SC says that the contentions of centre, regarding the issue of physiological limitations & social norms to deny an opportunity to women officers is disturbing & can't be accepted. Also says - Centre, by not giving permanent commission to women officers, had prejudiced the case. https://t.co/XvaHS4MNKy â ANI (@ANI) February 17, 2020According to Indiatimes, the Supreme Courtâs order said, âIt is an insult to women as well as the army when aspersions are cast on women, their ability and their achievements in the Army.â "Centre, by not giving permanent commission to women officers, had prejudiced the case," said the court bench comprising of Justices DY Chandrachud and Ajoy Rastogi. © BCCL Justice DY Chandrachud also said, "Soldiers must have the physical capability to do one's role. Women in the Army is an evolutionary process." However, the bench clarified that the deployment of women officers in combat roles is a matter of policy as held by the Delhi High Court and the competent authority has to look into it. The SC order made people on the internet extremely happy and most of them laud this historical judgment. Check out some of the reactions here: We agree.

Army means it should be like kill attitude. Kill the enemy. This is a country where shaktism is celebrated. When women take up command jobs, especially the warrior mind they should think to be like maha kali. They should eliminate the enemy at the cost of anything than be POW â Vandana (@Vandana788) February 17, 2020According to a PTI report, the apex court said there is need for a change in mindset with regard to giving equal opportunity to women officers in the Indian Army even after 70 years of post-colonial era. There are 1,653 women officers in the Army, 3.89 per cent of the total number of officers in the Army. According to the court, women officers brought laurels to the country and won several gallantry and Sena medals as well as UN Peacekeeping awards for their contribution in armed forces. To cast aspersions on them on the basis of physiological features is wrong as it is based on fallacy, it said. View the full article
  2. It is no secret that the work our Armed Forces do is risky, life-threatening and commendable. But the fact that these young soldiers donât think twice before putting their life on the line for us, despite the absence of fool-proof protective gear, while incredibly brave, is saddening. © Twitter However, in a great move of camaraderie and service to the Forces, an Indian Army Major has now developed a bulletproof helmet which can allegedly stop an AK-47 bullet shot from a distance of 10 metres. The amazing creation is highly praiseworthy given that if it stands true to its claims, the helmet can save thousands of lives by protecting the most important organ in our body. Award-Winning Major © Twitter Major Anoop Mishra had previously developed a bulletproof jacket to protect the troops against sniper bullets and other assault ammunition called âSarvatra Kavachâ. For the same reason, Maj Anoop, who is currently posted as an Instructor at the College of Military Engineering, Pune, was also awarded the prestigious Army Design Bureau (ADB) Excellence Award in 2019 by former Army Chief Gen Bipin Rawat. The Backstory © ANI Reportedly, In 2014 Maj Anoop was hit by a bullet while he was deployed in the Kashmir Valley. However, the bullet failed to be life-threatening since it hit his armour plate and he was saved. It was this personal trauma that motivated Maj Anoop to develop an armour which could protect soldiers from all kinds of ammunition. Thatâs how Sarvatra Kavach was created. From The Horseâs Mouth © ANI Earlier, talking to ANI Maj Anoop had shared that, âDuring one operation, I was hit by a stray bullet on my bulletproof jacket. The bullet was not able to penetrate but the trauma was a bit more than what I could have taken. So I decided on that day that I will be making my own bulletproof jacket which will be reducing the trauma which is transferred to the body.â Talking about his latest creation, Army officials told ANI "The ballistic helmet has been developed under project Abhedya by Major Anoop Mishra who has also developed a full-body protection bulletproof jacket which can withstand even sniper rifles. Congratulations to Major Anoop on his latest life-saving creation. View the full article
  3. Our soldiers put our safety first before their lives, brave the toughest of weather conditions and fight battles (which sometimes turn fatal) to protect us from not only external threats but also those on the inside and make sure that we are safe. No amount of words can ever be enough to express our gratitude towards them. But, what about those brave souls who sacrificed their lives for the country's freedom? A freedom, which we often take for granted. A freedom that costs countless lives that are slowly getting erased from everyone's memories now? © Prime Video To give a glimpse into the history and struggles of Indians back in 1942 and the courage with which they fought for our freedom, Prime Video is coming out with The Forgotten Army . Directed by Kabir Khan, The Forgotten Army chronicles the brave fight put up by the Azad Hind Fauj, also known as the Indian National Army led by Subhash Chandra Bose. The trailer has already struck a chord with people on social media, who can't seem to get enough of Sunny Kaushal who plays a pivotal role in the series. © Prime Video Ahead of its release on January 24, Sunny Kaushal and his brother Vicky Kaushal, who is probably till date answering his fans' question 'How's the Josh?'; came together for a special video where both of them are paying tribute to the 'remembered and forgotten' army. While Vicky pays tribute to the jawans of the Indian Army, Sunny Kaushal talks about the bravery and courage of the Indian National Army, who fought during World War II to free their country from the British. No matter how many times you watch the video, but every time Sunny Kaushal says, "Ek Din Hindustan Humari Is Qurbani Ko Yaad Karega, Shayad Samajh Nahi Payega Par Yaad Zaroor Karega", it sends chills down our spine. We can't wait to catch the series on Prime Video on January 24, what about you? Let us know in the comments below. View the full article
  4. Indian Army Chief General Manoj Mukund Naravane. Photo: Deccan Herald Indian Army Chief Gen Manoj Mukund Naravane on Saturday said if his army receives orders from the Indian parliament to 'reclaim' Azad Kashmir from Pakistan, it will take action, India Today has reported. Addressing the media, the newly-appointed Indian army chief said: “If the [Indian] parliament wants [Azad] Kashmir to be a part of India, then we will take the necessary action to achieve that goal.” “There is a parliamentary resolution that entire Jammu and Kashmir is part of India. If Parliament wants it, then, that area [AJK] also should belong to us,” he added. This is not the first time the new Indian general has indulged in provocative posturing. In an earlier statement, Gen Naravane had said that India "reserve[d] the right to preemptively strike at sources of terror". He had told the Press Trust of India that India had "evolved a strategy of resolute punitive response against sponsored terrorism". Pakistan had rejected the statement, calling it 'irresponsible'. The Foreign Office in its statement had said Pakistan was fully able to respond to any Indian aggression in AJK and that New Delhi should not forget Islamabad's befitting response to its aggression in Balakot last year. Read: FM Qureshi warns of false flag operation by India in Kashmir Tensions have been high between the two nuclear-armed neighbours since New Delhi revoked the special status of India-occupied Kashmir on August 5 of last year, imposing a military lockdown in the valley. The two countries had in February last year engaged in cross-border aerial missions, which had resulted in the capture of Indian pilot Abhinandan Varthaman by Pakistani forces. The captured pilot was eventually let go by Pakistan as a gesture of peace.

The Indian army chief’s statement on Azad Kashmir was a part of routine rhetoric to divert attention from domestic issues in India, said the DG ISPR. The DG ISPR, in a tweet, said that Pakistan’s armed forces are ready to respond to any Indian aggression. “Statements by Indian COAS to undertake military action across LOC are routine rhetoric for domestic audiences to get out of ongoing internal turmoil. Pakistan Armed Forces are fully prepared to respond to any act of Indian aggression," he tweeted. The DG ISPR called the Indian COAS' statement a latest manifestation of extremist indoctrination in India’s state institutions. ‪"We are aware of the dangers of belligerent fascist mindset in IOJ&K and to regional peace. World needs to take notice of Indian atrocities in IOJ&K and against minorities across India,” he said. ‪He added that India has experienced Pakistan’s response on Feb 27, 2019. “Same shall be even stronger next time,” said the DG ISPR. Pakistan Army 'ready for India'Prime Minister Imran Khan, while addressing a rally in Pind Dadan Khan on December 26, had said Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa has assured him that the country's military is "ready for India" in case of an attack on Azad Kashmir. "I am telling you now, [Indian Prime Minister Narendra] Modi will use this [protests against anti-Muslim laws in India] to do something in Azad Kashmir. I informed Gen Bajwa about this and he told me that Pakistan Army is ready for India," the premier had said.

  7. A display featuring missiles and a portrait of Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei is seen at Baharestan Square in Tehran, Iran. Photo: ReutersIran’s launching of more than a dozen missiles at American-led forces in Iraq on Wednesday came after years of preparing for a confrontation with its superpower foe, whose forces are vastly larger and more advanced, reported Reuters news agency on Wednesday. The Gulf country has more than 500,000 active-duty personnel, including 125,000 members of its elite Revolutionary Guards, according to a report last year by the International Institute for Strategic Studies. But international sanctions and restrictions on arms imports have made it hard for Iran to develop or buy more sophisticated weaponry. To compensate for the imbalance, Iran has developed “asymmetrical” responses - ballistic missiles, deadly drones and a web of militia allies in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Yemen, among other things - with the aim of being able to inflict pain while avoiding the traditional battlefield. Iranian minister Amir Hatami walks at an exhibition in Tehran, Iran, Faberuary 2, 2019. Photo: ReutersAlso read: Iran missile strike: Tehran claims 80 dead in attack on US bases “From a conventional military perspective they would get absolutely hammered,” said a British former military commander who asked not to be identified because of the sensitivity of the matter. “Their conventional military is very, very sparse and quite old and quite out of date. They’ve spent all their money on asymmetric attack capabilities. In that regard they’re very well prepared.” Until Wednesday, the strategy had deterred a direct conflict with the US as tensions spiked since Washington quit a multi-lateral nuclear deal in 2018 and reimposed sanctions. Gulf rival Saudi Arabia recently witnessed the damage that missile and drone assaults can cause, after a strike on its oil facilities last year briefly halved production and knocked out 5% of global crude supply. Riyadh and Washington blamed Iran for the attack. Photo: ReutersAlso read: Khamenei says Iran strike on US bases ‘a slap in the face’ for Washington Iran has built the largest stockpile of ballistic missiles in the Middle East. Some are based on the older, widely used “Scud” designs, with a range of at least 750km (466 miles). Others, based on the North Korean No Dong, can reach up to 2,000km, within reach of Israel or southeast Europe, according to a US Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) report last year. The Revolutionary Guards fields a fleet of missile-armed speedboats and midget submarines it can deploy against US military ships or commercial tankers to disrupt the flow of oil in Gulf waters, where Washington says Tehran attacked six tankers last year. “If you look at ships, tanks, jet fighters, Iran looks very weak. But if you’re looking at anti-ship missiles, ballistic missiles, UAVs and things like that then it looks a lot more capable,” said Jeremy Binnie, Middle East and Africa editor for Jane’s Defense Weekly. Photo: ReutersAlso read: Ukrainian jet crashes in Iran, all 176 on board dead Iran’s fleet of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) can be used for surveillance or armed with explosives, according to military experts. “Iran in the Persian Gulf doesn’t really need to have big ships, not necessarily frigates and destroyers. Speedboats, gun boats, missile boats can do the job,” said Hossein Aryan, a military analyst who served 18 years in Iran’s navy before and after the 1979 Islamic revolution. Major-General Qassem Soleimani, whose killing in a US drone strike in Baghdad last week sparked the Iranian retaliation on Wednesday, was the head of the Revolutionary Guards Quds Force. The group handled clandestine operations outside Iran, working closely with allied military forces and militias in Iraq, Syria and Lebanon.

US officials have said Soleimani was killed because intelligence indicated forces under his command planned attacks on US targets in the region, although they have provided no evidence.

Lebanon’s Hezbollah, along with a handful of the Iraqi militias closely allied with Iran, have already pledged to take revenge against American forces for Soleimani’s death. More than 5,000 US troops are in Iraq along with other foreign forces as part of a coalition that has trained and supported Iraqi security forces against the threat of Islamic State militants. American troops are also stationed at bases in Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Qatar, which hosts Al-Udeid air base, the largest US military facility in the region. Bahrain is headquarters of the US Navy’s Fifth Fleet.
  8. An important session of the National Assembly got under way around noon on Tuesday to legislate on the tenure of the services chiefs' tenure. Prime Minister Imran Khan made a rare appearance in the Lower House as the assembly passes three amendment bills to formalise the tenures of the army, navy and air force chiefs. Before the start of the voting, Defence Minister Pervaiz Khattak took the floor to request the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) to take back amendments it had suggested in the bills, saying he was making the request "keeping in mind the regional and national situation". Naveed Qamar, who spoke on behalf of the PPP in response to Khattak's request, noted that the amendments had been suggested to improve the bills but, after being approached by a government delegation and consulting with the rest of the opposition, the party had decided to withdraw them. Voting commenced shortly thereafter, with Speaker Asad Qaiser asking legislators to express their assent or dissent with 'Ayes' and 'Nays'. The bills were voted on clause by clause. Some opposition lawmakers, including MNAs from the Jamaat-e-Islami and representatives from erstwhile Fata walked out in protest over the bills. They had earlier announced they would not be supporting the bill on principle. All major parties had, however, lent their consent to it. In order to pass the bills, lawmakers in the lower house of Parliament on Monday adopted a resolution to suspend private members day to take up government business, reported The News. The private members day was scheduled to be held today (Tuesday) but now has been deferred to Wednesday. The National Assembly Standing Committee on Defence had been summoned on Monday to discuss amendments to the Army Act, Air Force Act, and Navy Act. The committee had to reconvene just three days after it initially 'approved' the three bills aimed at regularising the tenure of the services chiefs. Also read: COAS service extension: Army Act amendment bill to make future extensions airtight The committee had to be summoned again after it was established that the rules and regulations of parliament were violated in the January 3 session of the committee. After the National Assembly's approval, the bills will be approved by the Senate Standing Committee on Defence before bills are passed by the Senate. The bills would become acts of Parliament once signed by the president. Law Minister Farogh Naseem had said that all political parties including the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N ) and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) have approved the amendment bills. PTI, PML-N hold meetings Prior to the National Assembly session major parties held meetings to prepare strategy for the legislation. PM Imran chaired a meeting of parliamentary party of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and allied parties. All the MNAs were directed to ensure their presence in the assembly during the ongoing session. According to sources, PML-N reiterated its earlier decision of supporting the bills as decided by the party leadership. Former defence minister and senior PML-N leader Khawaja Asif said the members were bound to follow the party policy. Meanwhile, federal ministers Pervez Khattak and Azam Swati met with the PPP leaders and requested to maintain a peaceful environment in the assembly during the prime minister's presence. Changes sought in lawThe proposed amendments set the maximum age limit of the three services chiefs — chief of army staff, chief of air staff and chief of naval staff — at 64 years. If the bills get passed, the prime minister will have the power to extend the tenure of any service chief and the president will give his final nod to the extension or reappointment. Under clause 8B of Army Act Amendment Bill, the president, on the advice of the prime minister, may “reappoint the Chief of the Army Staff for an additional tenure of three (03) years, on such terms and conditions, as may be determined by the president on the advice of the prime minister, in the national security interest or exigencies, from time to time”. “Notwithstanding anything contained in this Act or any other law, or any order or judgement of any Court, the appointment, reappointment or extension of the Chief of the Army Staff (COAS), or the exercise of discretion by the appointing authority in this regard, shall not be called into question before any court on any ground whatsoever,” the bill states. Also read: Cabinet approves amendment to Army Act SC directs govt to legislate on COAS tenureBack in November 2018, the Supreme Court had asked the government to legislate on an extension in the COAS's services within six months, allowing General Qamar Javed Bajwa to stay in office until then. Prior to that, PM Imran in August had approved the extension in the COAS's services through an executive order. Former chief justice Asif Saeed Khosa had in late November taken up a petition challenging the extension in service of the COAS, deeming it 'in the public interest'. The court had subsequently suspended the notification of the extension in General Bajwa's tenure. Last month, after the top court issued the detailed verdict in the case, the government had filed a review petition in the SC, pleading the court to form a larger bench to hear the case, and requesting it to keep the proceedings in-camera. Side by side, it had launched the formalities to formulate a bill formalising the rules governing the army chief's extension and have it passed through parliament.

  12. At a time when our democracy is dwindling amidst the CAA and the NRC row, celebrating anything seems like a tough task for the human heart. The country is divided on the whole issue and the protests happening across the country are proof that at least weâre all united in protecting each other from whatever awaits us. As the world celebrated Christmas yesterday, Indians kept it a low profile affair this year, but a video of our brave soldiers celebrating Christmas at the LOC in Kashmir has gone viral and trust us, it is warming our hearts on a cold winter morning. #WATCH Jawans celebrate Christmas on the Line of Control in Kashmir.

  18. Taking inspiration from the Iron Man franchise, a part-time employee working at a private university in Varanasi has developed a prototype 'Iron Man' suit to help the Indian Army. No, we aren't joking! According to ANI, Shyam Chaurasia from Varanasi said that he has made the suit prototype keeping the Indian army soldiers in mind. "It is a metal suit designed to help the Indian Army soldiers during their encounters with terrorists and enemies. Currently, it is just a prototype, but it can help the soldiers immensely during the times of the battle,” Chaurasia told ANI. While, Chaurasia thinks that the Iron-Man suit can help the Indian Army, here's what the internet thinks- You Vs the Guy she told you not to worry about pic.twitter.com/j6e9lddnb3 — Jitesh Rochlani (@jiteshrochlani) November 19, 2019 If the idea is to kill the enemy by laughter, this might work. — Ashwin (@ashwin_thm) November 18, 2019 WTH is that?

The cost of a soldier's life is very high, what I have done is just an attempt to bring it in the radar of DRDO and other agencies,” he also said. What do you think about the desi Iron Man suit?

  19. Major Surendra Poonia, VSM is the man who will look you straight in the eye and tell you that he will never stop living for his country. With a confident smile on his face, he would call you his little brother and would go on to talk about his love for the nation and its people for hours. And sure enough, he has earned every second, every minute of that time with the kind of sacrifices he's made and the level of dedication he's shown just to see the Indian flag fly high. Born on January 1, 1977 in Rajpura, Rajasthan, Major Poonia was born in a farmer's family. Ever since his childhood, he'd seen his family work relentlessly, sometimes for 18 hours a day just to earn a decent living. He understood the value of working hard at a very young age and decided to make it a way of living for himself. Belonging to a village in which every household produces a soldier, a policeman or an Air Man, he'd also taken the pledge dedicate his life for the country's sovereignty and do whatever it takes to keep his fellow Indians safe from any type of danger. A Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery from the highly prestigious Armed Forces Medical College, Pune, he was commissioned to the Army Medical Corps in August 2001 and made it a primary goal of his life to join the Para Special Forces unit of the Indian Army. “I have seen my parents work on the farm nonstop for days just to see the entire crop get wasted due to hailstorms or unseasonal rains. I'd like to believe that I have a farmer's heart. It allows me to not lose courage even if something I have worked for so dedicated gets ruined at the final moment,” Major Surendra Poonia, VSM tells MensXP. After years of unimaginably difficult training regimen, Major Poonia finally became a member of the Para SF. He served with 2-Para Special Forces, 10-Para Special Forces and 5 Para for five years in the insurgency-ridden area of Jammu and Kashmir. In 2005 his team engaged Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) terrorists in a counter insurgency operation in the Bandipore forest in Kashmir. Although during the operation they were able to kill the terrorists, 18 of Major Poonia's colleagues were gravely injured with multiple gun-shot wounds. He was able to save all 18 of his comrades in the middle of the massive firing without thinking of his personal safety and life. For his limitless courage, devotion & service beyond the call of duty in that operation, the Chief of Indian Army honoured him with his commendation Medal. View this post on Instagram Kashmir Days.

I realised that it must be used to do something good for others also. Selfishly living it for my own self wasn't enough,” he says. “I realised that I had a responsibility towards my country, the soldiers and the families of those brave men who gave their lives in war.” He was also made a part of the United Nations Peacekeeping Mission to bring and maintain peace in the conflict-prone regions of the Democratic Republic of the Congo for one year and in 2008, was added to the Parachute-Cavalry regiment of India - The President's Bodyguard (PBG) and served to protect two Indian Presidents, Pratibha Patil and Pranab Mukherjee. Always a well recognised athlete, Major Surendra Poonia, VSM finally saw the opportunity to honour his country in sports and athletics as well when he made his debut at the World Medical and Health Games in Croatia. Without a team, proper medical staff or even a national jersey, he decided to take part in multiple events at the World Championships. Arranging an Indian cricket team jersey in an ad hoc situation, he went on to win a gold medal in powerlifting, a silver medal in discus throw and a bronze medal in javelin. What is more impressive is the fact that Poonia was able to learn how to throw the javelin by looking at YouTube videos.

He used to be an excellent athlete had the greatest arm in the sport that we knew in all of Pune,” recalls Poonia. “He used to sent me YouTube videos for practicing and imitating the way professional athletes threw the javelin and guided me on the technicalities of the game.” Following his successful venture at the 2010 World Health Games, he went on to represent India in four more World Championships and became the first athlete to win consecutive gold medals in the powerlifting event for three years in a row. After winning a total of 27 World Championship level medals for the country, being honours with the 'Vishisht Seva Medal' by the President of India for his 'Distinguished Service of an Exceptional Order' in the field of sports and becoming the first Indian doctor to win 10 gold medals in any International Championship, Major Surendra Poonia, VSM has now decided to serve his countrymen as a politician and has joined a major political party of the country.

A decade ago, he worked to protect his people from terror threats from foreign forces. Now, he works to protect his people from threats of their own making, unhealthiness and lethargy. In collaboration with Fast&Up, a sports nutrition supplements brand, Major Poonia decided to come up with a 30-day #StepChallenge to promote fitness in India. All you need to do is walk and record the number of steps you take every day. “While professional athletes spend hours in the gym and the field, we wanted something that everybody can do and that it walking. You don't need a gym or a ground of a track for walking, you can walk anywhere,” he says. “Ever since the challenge began on October 24, people have taken more than two crore steps combined. Lately I have been getting phenomenal records like 56,000 to 64,000 steps in a day.

I just want to request my fellow brothers and sisters to head out of their homes and spend at least an hour on themselves and take that first step towards fitness. If we are able to influence even one percent of the Indian population, we feel that the objective of this program would be successful,” says Major Surendra Poonia, VSM. View the full article

  21. PUBG Mobile Club Open Fall Split 2019 saw the South Asian regional finals come to an end on Sunday, with two Indian teams battling for the regional championship title, after securing spots for the international finals taking place in Malaysia on November 29. © PMCO/Tencent After a triple chicken-dinner snag, Entity Gaming grabbed the top spot with 220 points, while fan-favourites SouL came hot on their heels with 210, and a single chicken-dinner. SouL's Naman Mathur, aka MortaL, claimed Tencent's 'fan-favourite' award, and addressed fans, supporters and rivals in a lengthy Facebook post. Unexpectedly, Mumbai-based MortaL not only dedicated their effort in the tournament to the Indian Army, but also announced that he would be donating his share of the earnings to them as well. According to the National Defence Fund website, donations made will primarily fund technical scholarships and the families of ex-servicemen in the forces - quite the noble cause. It's been a tense year for gaming in India - stories of PUBG addiction and even a death caused by overplaying the game have given mobile gaming a bad rap amongst parents and schools, though e-sports success stories such as these prove that there's potential for not just professional careers in gaming, but humanitarian support as well. Regarding his 'fan-favourite' award, the 23-year-old gamer said, “It feels great! I was not aware of vote stuff, but later on, Tencent guys came to me and handed over the goodies saying that you have won the fan-favorite award on the website.” View the full article
