1: Recently an influential American newspaper “the Washington Post” published a report that questioned the adequacy and implementation of India's export control and nuclear classification procedures, saying that sensitive nuclear blueprints were leaked by an Indian government agency in 2006. Simultaneously the secrecy that shrouds the civilian nuclear industry in India makes it almost impossible for citizens to know accurately the details of accidents that have occurred. The frequency and similarity of many of these incidents and accidents is disturbing. It discredits the Department of Atomic Energy as the head of a nuclear industry, and the ability of the AERB to ensure safety in that industry.

2: India tested Smiling Buddha in 1974. India maintained that it was a peaceful nuclear program, but it was alleged that dual-use technology was apparent, where civilian nuclear technology used secretly channeled to weapons technology. India’s acquisition of nuclear weapons had been a mistake because it had not achieved its purpose of addressing the Chinese threat to India’s border. India’s security situation has actually deteriorated further by the acquisition of its huge number of nuclear weapons rather than preserving peace.

3: Indian gigantic nuclear programme has transformed regional security architect. Massive nuclear build up by India has tilted the nuclear balance in its favour which resulted in the nuclear arms race in south Asia. Last month, Indian ICBM, Pirthivi 5 test has also worsened the global peace. Not been signatory to NPT India has developed a disastrous nuclear capability which is greatest threat for regional and global peace.

4: The article depicts that number of nuclear weapon states have grown tremendously and also their intentions by counting the number of nuclear weapons they possess. Disarmament has become an ideal notion which cannot be achieved. Possession of nuclear weapons are not only for the purpose of sovereignity and securit of the state but they are also meant for prestige and domestic politics. India nuclear weapon program is also meant for prestige and domestic politics rather focussing on national security. By joining the club of nuclear weapon states carrying fatal weapons is not a good gesture . India is in efforts of growing the capability of fatality quantitatively and qualitatively as well.
