    Army denies selling arms to Myanmar


    [​IMG]

    The Indian Army is insisting that no lethal weapon from its inventory has ever been sold to any foreign country, least of all to Myanmar’s military junta. The Army has been forced to come up with a clarification after a Carl Gustav M3 anti-tank rifle from its inventory turned up with the Myanmarese army recently.

    Swedish government earlier this week sought explanation from the Indian government over the controversial find, which is in violation of the arms embargo imposed on the Myanmar’s military junta. Carl Gustav is manufactured by Swedish firm Saab.

    A senior Army officer told TOI that the Army has never sold any lethal weapons to any foreign country. “The DGMO (directorate general of military operations) is checking up,” another source said, when asked how a rifle, carrying serial number of a weapon system sold to the Indian Army, turned up in Myanmar.

    On Thursday, the Swedish trade minister Ewa Bjorling had told Swedish parliament that the Swedish Agency for Non-Proliferation and Export Controls “has requested an expedited answer from India”.

    Does it also mean that the weapons being used by the Taliban have been issued by the Pak Army? Most types of weapons can now be procured from local arms bazaars. Many are locally manufactured in illegal homegrown units.

    The Swedes should therefore tone down their rhetoric and stop making a song and dance on the issue.

    Aw come on now, don't say you cannot guess what happened?
    Of course, literally every army has mischievous elements, so it was either smuggled illegally or stolen.
    It's that simple.

    Its really weird you think "Sikh", "Muslim", "Christian" officers became generous. Maybe this is the mindset that prevents minorities from getting ahead in Pakistan. We are not really as emo or as unstable as your general populace. When it comes to security we have consensus. As for your implication, it really is just stupid.

    The first step to being healed is to acknowledge that you really are dysfunctional.
