Protest against citizenship amendment act (CAA) began in Delhi in the month of December and it has now entered the third month. By now Indian government has tried plethora of means to douse this fire, but the government’s efforts were watered down by the fact that each time protests subsided only temporarily, and the flames of resentment reignited soon after. This was a sign that the protests had an insatiable nature to it, backed by anti-India entities. Now that Ajit Doval, National security advisor of India, has stepped into this arena of burning tyre and radiating calls for azadi (freedom),Indian populace has discerned that under the garb of anti-CAA protests a sinister game plan to destabilize India is being played out. It is no easy feat for unorganized populace to carry out an ostensible agitation against the system, with free lunch and dinner for almost 3 months.

 Yes, this is a nefarious design which involves diligent planning, resource accumulation, a king’s ransom and military precision in execution—India is being pushed into a non-contact war by the enemy.

Since last two days, social media has been flooded with posts asking government to take action against the murderers of Constable Ratan Lal and Intelligence bureau security assistant, Ankit Sharma. Media houses had initially misreported death of Constable Ratan Lal as– killed due to head injuries after stone pelting, when the actual reason was bullet injuries. On the other hand, 26 year old Ankit Sharma was brutally tortured and dumped in the drain. Reports have confirmed that his nose was chopped off, eyes gauged out and that there were other visible marks of torture on his body. This is a clear sign that there is planned attack being carried out not only on innocent citizens but also on the government officials—they were first isolated and then murdered. Planned agitation of this scale that targeted the population, impacted the government structures, and paralyzed normality in the capital of India, has not been witnessed by the country in the recent past.

These are elements of a non-contact warfare—when the enemy doesn’t wage a war with the forces on the traditional battlespace, instead minimizes it’s direct contact with the defence forces, and uses a third party (usually radicalized mob) to cause a dent in the economic progress, and to damage the thin fibre of societal unity leading to destabilization of the country– something that India is experiencing presently.

The plan

The plan was to transmogrify the innocuous looking agitation at Shaheen bagh into a full blown escalation at India’s borders, but it was to unfold in many stages.

Stage 1: Agitation

Largely peaceful agitation were initially carried out at Shaheen bagh using women and children, creating a narrative that a certain community was enraged by the citizenship amendment act. Here, the use of women and children was for the tactical appeal. Media and other anti-government entities were utilized to purvey this narrative within India and outside it.

Government at this stage was expected to treat the paid agitators with kid gloves. At this stage intel agencies were active, and they dug out the source of funding of many well-planned agitations. It was found that PFI (Popular front of India), an extremist organisation, through 73 syndicate banks helps helped pump Rs 120 crores or $16 million into anti-CAA protests. But a mild approach did not help in reducing the intensity of protests and it escalated to stage 2.

Stage 2Political unrest, wave of riots, thefts and arson

In this stage political parties lend their support to the paid-agitators, pressurize the government to crucify government officials and others who take action against agitators. This functions as an umbrella that protects the agitators and lets them carry out riots, thefts, arson with impunity–violence in Jaffrabad is an example. IB security assistant Ankit sharma and Constable Ratan Lal were victims of stage 2.

This is when Indian government, which had just managed to unshackle it’s resources from Trump centered security tasks, brought in NSA, Ajit Doval, to put a check on the ferocity of paid-protests.

Stage 3: Taking out High value targets

The next stage of Shaheen bagh protests would have been either murder of a high value target (HVT) or their incarceration, which would have impeded government’s action against paid-agitators.

HVT, high value target, by definition is a commander who has to complete a mission, and is on enemy’s crosshairs. In India’s present scenario, the victim can be anyone from a local political leader heading pro-CAA march or the head of a political organisation from any camp, be it anti-CAA or pro-CAA. This would have caused chaos at an unimaginable scale, with followers of the HVT running helter-skelter like headless chickens.

Such chaos would have put tremendous pressure on the defence forces. Ideally, under such circumstances Rapid action force and para military are the first to arrive, but if the situation remains unmanageable, then Army is brought in.

With paid-agitators sabotaging private and government properties, riots on the streets , murders of political figures and government officials,  enemy would have had the right opportunity to escalate the chaos to next stage.

Stage 4: Full blown escalation on the border and economic predation

It is always easier to attack an enemy who is weakened internally. With chaos having taken a firm grip over India, it would have been an open invitation to India’s enemies to open fire on the border. Conventional war is not the only possibility that the enemy would have sifted through, economic loop holes and ways to curb production within India would have also been exploited.

The enemy already attempted to utilize a window of opportunity during Trump’s visit to India when the protests had exacerbated–Pakistani BAT (border action team) infamous for decapitation and mutilation of soldiers, tried to infiltrate into India on Feb 20, via Neelum valley.

The ultimate aim of this strategy was to insert wedges between different communities in India, destabilize the government and the country, resulting in economic slowdown.

Inception, change in strategy and the other players

Genesis of this nefarious plan is not hard to figure out– Pakistan’s spy agency, ISI, definitely has role to play in it. This has already been proven by the fact that ISI backed PFI had been funding protests in India, and also by Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan’s incendiary posts on his social media accounts. Pakistani deep state uses DGISPR (Director General Inter Services Public Relations) and Imran Khan’s accounts on social media for malign campaigns against India. The post below is an example of how Pakistani PM misleads people. India has the 2nd largest population of muslims in the world yet Imran Khan’s posts contradict this fact.

Till very recently, Pakistan Army depended on trained terrorists to carry out an asymmetric war against India but Pakistani deep state changed its strategy against India immediately after Balakot strikes, when India used it’s Airforce to bomb terrorists camps on Pakistani soil. Pakistan learnt its lessons from the incident that—India would continue such cock-a-snook operations on Pakistani soil to destroy terrorist launch-pads and camps. With a tarnished image Pakistan would have also soon slipped into Financial Action Task force’s (FATF) black list. Presently Pakistan is on FATF’s grey list, where it was relegated to atleast two times before this—in 2008 and 2012, but despite this, Pakistani deep state continued its unflinching support to terrorism.

To bring down a mammoth like India, Pakistani government with its weak economy cannot be the only players involved. Other than the usual suspects, Qatar is a country which often goes unnamed by Indian media houses. From Ilhan Omar, backed by Qatar, to Qatar’s official media house, Al-Jazeera, carrying out incessant smear campaigns against India, it is clear that Qatar does use its resources against India. It is to be noted that within the middle-eastern countries neither Qatar gets much support, nor is Al-Jazeera allowed to disseminate its propaganda.

India’s immediate concern should be to not let the present situation snowball into an avalanche. The enemy sans making a direct contact has managed to cause plethora of damage to not just normalcy within India but also to India’s reputation across the globe, while the enemy itself continues to remain ensconced safely among the paid-protestors.

  1. A very meticulously analysed sequence of action in Hybrid warfare unleashed by enemies and inimical to India’s progress.
    Hope the masses read and don’t fall in trap of anarchy they wish to drag the Nation too .
    More power to your pen . God Bless Levina , bash on …

  2. Absolutely eye opener article……………..Thankso
    i hope it included some clear names which are paralyzing ur system by taking every action of the Govt to Supreme Court for adjudication and Even the court entertains such petitions and delays the govt action .

  3. When government is aware of all this then it should have taken some precautionary steps, just reading the article suggests that it is something which has to be tackled in a planned way I’m not here to comment on the fact that our government was sleeping during all this

  4. I think it is a well researched and well-written analysis. I personally think this is a warning shot by the government of India to Pakistan and its allies in India in the political and anti-national groupings.I’m sure the government of India was not sleeping and was allowed the first stage to go on because that would have demoralised the ₹ 500 and biriyani culture. The bringing in of Mr Dovel is again another warning shot. We can expect covered government of India action against Pakistan followed by action against the Allies of Pakistan and China in India. This will ultimately result in the redrawing of the political map of India and completely neutralising the Jihadi plans for India. But we have to be diligent and on our toes to do this. All patriotic Indians should support this effort.

  5. Excellent article, the depth and sophistication of Levina’s understanding of ISI’s sinister conspiracy and mindset , are indeed extraordinary. I am awed by this in depth revealations made by her. My heartfelt congratulations to you, Levina. God bless you and give you the inspiration to write many more of such revealing articles.


  7. Now that the mask is stripped out ….it is proven that it has nothing to do with CAA. I feel Modi and Amit Shah should have expected this kind of chaos especially during Trumps visit. Hope they take maximum precautions at least as of now because innocent lives are being lost.
    Government communication machinery should go all out in countering fake news and exposing these anti social elements at the earliest. Be it Sonia Gandhi and her goons, one should not shy away from exposing this anti India cabals.

  8. Well written and that these were sponsored and not spontaneous, organised not organic protests was clear even to untrained eyes. I would like to see persons responsible punished. Govt should be more vigilant and unfortunately we have many gullible persons as well as nefarous people with an axe to grind against establishment due to their own failures who will take advantage of the situation.

  9. […] So the deep state’s biggest predicament is to pull Pakistan out of this quagmire and to get rid of the tag of terrorism, to which it has been attached universally. Ostensibly, now the deep state doesn’t directly involve itself in carrying out the terrorist attacks, instead it has switched to non-contact warfare. Recent protests in India over citizenship amendment act(CAA), had been meticulously planned and executed by Pakistan’s spy agency ISI. […]


  11. Why to write more lines the earlier comments are same I would have written. Simply a brilliant write up does GOI not knows it. Then why don’t preempt the sinister plot. NON CONTACT WARFARE is a sinister plot when in 1st stage we were caught napping. Sharjeel Imam was tweeting to cut the chicken neck the 22 km wide life line to North East and we were celebrating Ram Mandir judgement and saying both the parties will now be peaceful after it. But the stoic silence of them was a lull before an impending storm. Corona has saved the day for us and their methodical plan of 3rd and 4th stage now defeated automatically. But the 2nd attempt will come soon. Remember after 1st Battle of Tarain 1191 AD the invaders started preparing for next invasion from scratch but we were celebrating after it. They worked their 2nd attack after more reports about our habbits of bathing in morning cooking food in separate places for us instead of community kitchen and then going to battle field in the 2nd Battle they attacked at 4am when majority of them were unarmed. They were empty stomach but made to fight till 2nd half when they lost. We should learn from History this loss of 1192 subjugated us for 600 yrs to them and 200 yrs to British. Thanks Levina 🙏

  12. Very popular soviet tactics as unleashed by yuri bezmenov.
