(p.154) 19 The Kargil Inquiry1

A.G. Noorani

Oxford University Press

The government appointed a four-member committee on 24 July 1999 'to review the events leading upto the Pakistani aggression in the Kargil district. … and to recommend such measures as are considered necessary to safeguard national security'. The article contends that the terms of reference were quite vague. Contradictory statements by leaders including the defence minister further raised doubts about the inquiry and its scope. Democratic accountability demands a thorough probe, covering not just initial intelligence failure but also the responses of leaders of the government and the army.

Keywords:   Pakistani aggression, national security, terms of reference, Democratic accountability, intelligence failure
