Who are some great Indians that most people have not heard of? by Nikhil Chaudhary
Answer by Nikhil Chaudhary:
Ajit Doval: The James Bond of India.
The name you know. The man you don't!
We're very well known to him as the National Security Advisor of Narendra Modi. But, have you heard of his contributions for the nation?
- 46 nurses were trapped in a hospital in Tikrit, Iraq, a region controlled by ISIS. In June 2014, Doval was sent to Iraq on a secret mission. And he played a vital role in ensuring their secure return from ISIS hands.
- He's the man behind India's recent surgical strike on LOC & Myanmar Surgical strike as well.
- He terminated 15 hijackings of Indian Airlines aircraft from 1971-1999. He was India's main negotiator with the hijackers of IA flight IC-814 in Kandahar in ‘99.
- There were times when he made big changes in PM's security plan on his abroad visits.
- He lived as an undercover agent in Pakistan for seven years. I hope you know how they treat spying suspects and you've heard of Sarabjit?
- Doval posed as a Pakistani spy and collected info from Khalistani militants before ‘Operation Black Thunder’. (The Khalistan movement was a Sikh nationalist movement, which seeks to create a separate country called Khalistān in the Punjab region of South Asia.)
- He was actively involved in the anti-insurgency operations in Mizoram, Punjab and Kashmir.
- He worked for six years in the Indian High Commission in Islamabad, Pakistan. And he's a master's degree in economics.
- He's 70 years old. Most of the govt officials retire at this age and enjoy the pensions.
- Former Director of the Intelligence Bureau, he’s one of the India’s sharpest minds and a well-known foremost analysts and commentators on strategic national & international issues.
“You do one more ‘Mumbai’, you lose Balochistan!” ~ Ajit Doval
PS- It's because of him, we're living peacefully.
Edit- In case you already know all the aforementioned thing about him, please don't bother to comment.
