In comparison to India, Pakistan seems to lack advanced nuclear technology. However, its current building of arsenal brings concern to the international community. One concern is the current India-Pakistan conflict brought on by the undisputed territory of Jammu and Kashmir. It does not help they both now have access to nuclear arsenal. Abdullah explains, Pakistan would refrain from using nuclear arsenal unless it is used for defense. The author also argues whether or not it reasoning can be a cause of cultural taboo—Pakistan commits “nuclear bluffs”. Although, there have been various diplomatic ceasefires, there have been multiple violations on both parties.
I think what aggravates the situation, is the expansion of military ties between Pakistan, China, and Saudi Arabia. It is because of the geographical disadvantages; these alliances threaten India by already being landlocked between the two regional powers. India is already a growing global power but Pakistan being funded by China, this can deviate its global ambitions.
