    In what way the training given to the special forces differs from that of strategic forces?





    then perhaps these were the most basic level of training.I had heard that a new curriculum was to be introduced to teach the CRPF jawans to deal with cyber threats, is this true? as of now,who deals with cyber threats?
    Boy are you curious....but my cyber security training from the Army forbids me from answering those questions

    Most of your answers will be answered by a simple google search or by reading some older posts on this thread.

    NSG is under MHA. They don't 'need' to protect their identity.

    My Q isn't whether the NSG wear Balaclavas or not.... We have seen them train and do their duty with and without Balaclavas.... what strike me as odd that he was the only operative wearing his ID card while wearing his balaclavas.... while the rest of them (in pics) isn't wearing.. that a bit odd for me that is

    I don't want to ask in the Strategic News thread. I want to ask here.

    Do Muslims serve willingly in the Indian Forces? What is their status there? Are there many officers, NCOs who are Muslim? Is there mistrust, etc?

    Thaaaanks...

    Yes Muslims willingly serve in the Indian Forces.

    The only serving Muslim Lt.Gen in the Indian Army is Gen. Ata Hasnain. He was till recently the Corp Commander of the XV Corp of the Indian Army which covers the Kashmir Valley

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Syed_Ata_Hasnain

    And then there is the well known analyst, former Major General Afsir Karim

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Afsir_Karim

    Muslims have proudly served the Indian Army since independence and soldiers like Abdul Hamid have been awarded the country's highest Gallantry honour, Param Vir Chakra for heroic actions during the 1965 War with Pakistan.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abdul_Hamid_%28soldier%29

    Muslims though remain under-represented in the Indian Army as they make only about 3 % of the Indian Army much less than their percentage of 15% in the Indian population. This can be attributed due to a number socio-cultural reasons.

    Yes. There is no conscription in India.

    There are no official stats on number of muslims in Indian armed forces as the army has simply refused to classify soldiers on religious grounds. A CNN-IBN report stated the numbers as being close to 3%. There are plenty of Muslim officers that have made it to high ranks.
