    NEW DELHI: India may see a major shift in its nuclear weapons doctrine by doing away with a 'no first use policy' in the future, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh today said. "Till today, our nuclear policy is 'No First Use'. What happens in future depends on the circumstances," media reports said quoting the minister who was at an event in Pokhran, the site of India’s nuclear tests in 1998.

    The comments come in the midst of heightened tensions between India and Pakistan after the Indian government revoked Article 370 that gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir. Pakistan had condemned the move. In February this year, India had called Pakistan’s nuclear bluff by conducting an aerial raid on a terrorist training camp in Pakistan after the 14 February Pulwama suicide attack.

    In a tweet, Rajnath Singh added, "Pokhran is the area which witnessed Atal Ji’s firm resolve to make India a nuclear power and yet remain firmly committed to the doctrine of 'No First Use’. India has strictly adhered to this doctrine. What happens in future depends on the circumstances."

    The defence minister was in Pokhran on Friday morning to pay respects to former prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee on his first death anniversary. It was during Vajpayee’s tenure as prime minister that India conducted five nuclear tests and became a nuclear weapon state in 1998. Pakistan, in response, had conducted six tests – breaking out of the nuclear closet. India had brought out its nuclear doctrine in 1999 in which it had declared a 'no first use policy' i.e. it would not be the first to launch a nuclear weapon but retained the right to retaliate in response to an atomic strike.

    In 2016, the then defence minister Manohar Parrikar had set off questions about whether the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) government was doing a rethink on its nuclear doctrine when he had asked why should India bind itself to a no first use policy.

    The no first use policy is something which only India says to the international community it was criticized for introducing and forcing Pakistan to follow up with nuclear weapons in the region.

    Practically it has always been understood by Pakistan that India never had and will have any limit on it's nuclear weapon use. However it should be aware that if used there will be a equal or greater retaliation.

    NFU policy by India is stupid. The policy should be we will use first to stop any imminent attack using WMD on India of Indian assets.

    And did anyone seriously believe the gangus about 'no first use policy'? We're talking about gangus here, the ultimate scum of the earth. I see this more of a 'panic induced statement' you see with all the aggressive posturing Pak has been doing since 370 both diplomatically and on the LOC, plus the 'independence' announcement by Nagaland, the Khalistan movement. The reaction from Pakistani PUBLIC has been quite intense and the int. Media has been relentless so far, spear headed by our very own PM who has been instrumental in labelling these fascists as, well fascists. You see what we are witnessing here is that the gangoos are cracking, they are panicking and it shows their desperation more than anything else. Seriously, why would you issue such a statement when you have a 2:1 advantage in numbers? Plus more resources? The way i see it, they're panicking which is a BIG BIG development. I call it a psychological victory for Pak. You dont tell someone that you'll nuke them, you just do it ! The threat is always there, when you say you're gonna do it, it just exposes your weak character and your mental strength-or the lack of it. The pressure is finally showing on these rat worhsipping bastards, they're feeling the heat. This makes me....satisfied.

    Saudi should worry now about their 45b$ investment and other countries who didn't take a Pakistan side, now this Hindu Zionist terrorist regime threat the whole world with a nuclear attack. As Muslim we are not scared and who cares about his statement,..one day we all need to die. Pakistan should start looking at all those options and strike them before they striking us.

    Modi has single handedly destroyed all the goodwill Indian leaders and diplomats had garnered over decades on the international level as a responsible and inclusive democratic state.
