I am in favor of the topic. Yes, India is a soft nation in more senses than one. As an Indian, I am proud to say that I belong to a country that does not promote violence by attacking other countries, even when targeted upon, treats guests as God and is in favor of helping other countries in need.
But it pains me deeply, that my country cannot stand up for her women, for the soldiers who fight to protect her, for the heroes who work hard to put her name on the global map. It is disappointing that India is nowhere next to where she should be, considering the immense potential in India.
However, looking at the past and the history India has, I am confident we are looking at a bright future :).
|Rahul said: (Jun 11, 2016)|
|Yes I truly believe India is a soft nation around the world tell you story about in India we have people who belong to different society, community, religion literacy language and this has help us do not creat discrimination one god is within all this can happen in only India that's what I feel all the time India is soft nation.|
|Ankita Rai said: (Apr 26, 2016)|
|As per my view, yes India is a soft country. It believes in peace and harmony. It has never initiated any fight by itself. It is rarely been heard that India has ever been involved in any of the terrorist attacks. But whenever any other country has needed any help India has been ahead of helping them. Taking an example of J&K. Though these people want to be separated yet at the time of help it was India only who offered for help in the time of need and adversity.
So India is a soft nation but it can be hard and rough if the situation demands so.
There are some more areas where India needs to be strong like taking decisions quickly and providing justice to the victims as soon as possible especially rape victims.
|Jyothish said: (Apr 17, 2016)|
|In my view, INDIA is a soft nation because it's around 125 crore mixed religion peoples living in this country India is a one and only country in all around the world this much of different religions peoples living our country is always trying to be a soft nation. Due to bad politics, it becomes a hard nation if you examine certain recent incidents in JNU university, Hyderabad central university, NIT Srinagar etc besides all these university incidents most of the politics involved. Certain parties play politics mixed with some students who are worked for politicians. If such incidents again repeated the education system in India may collapse everyone has looked into this what is the reality and try to solve problems in a systematic way then only our country becomes SUPER POWER.
INDIA is becomes a strongest economy in the world recently the number of billionaires in our country has also increased like this corruption also increased due to politicians if you seriously looked this one how to cross the country with thousands of crores loan with banks even he don't bother about notices also what is doing the govt and system fist of all we have to change our system if we cannot change our system it is very hard to become and be a soft nation.
In future, we have to fight with climate change, terrorism, water wars etc. If we solve out common problems 100% we succeeded with this calamities so for this it is necessary to become a soft.
Thanks for giving a chance to participate in this discussion.

|Everybody speak good but I want to say that India is a soft country in only defence sector because our government not permit to destroy the terrorists so according to me our government is soft.|
|Soujanya said: (Apr 3, 2016)|
According to my thinking, India is a soft nation why because India believe in peace. We use to solve our problems with politeness.
|Anonymous said: (Mar 3, 2016)|
|Actually, there is a certain dilemma of whether our country is actually a soft nation or not. Cause while stating the point that India is a soft Nation, I should not forget the 26/11 attack, if India would have been a soft nation, then it won't be possible to recover from such miserable, drastic and painful circumstances.
So proud of being an Indian and we are hard enough guys. India has so many power weapons, nuclear missiles, which can destroy our enemy country within seconds, but India just trying to bring everything under mutual harmony. Hope these mutual understanding amongst us and our enemy country would protect us from any other future violence.
|Abhishek said: (Jan 23, 2016)|
|We are just like coconut. Hard from outside and softer inside. As we can see our Army is very strong but we have soft government.|
|Shrawan Ram said: (Dec 13, 2015)|
I think everybody has contributed well but I have a different point of view, no India is not a soft country at all, we are little weak in quick decision making when it comes to make a wise decision, but we can start fighting quickly when it comes to cast or religion, isn't it stupidity, yes it is. I think its time to think & move into a right direction.
|J.Manojkumar said: (Dec 9, 2015)|
|In my opinion, India is soft nation because India is democratic country. There is no laws to live in India anyone can live in India. India is religious country and respect every culture. In India various countries people are living. In India so many politicians are doing corrupted things they cannot punish that is disadvantage for India.
The terrorist attacks are happen in India so many times they cannot punished that why India is called is a soft nation. I'm felling to be proud because I born in India.
|Anjli Maheshwari said: (Oct 17, 2015)|
|I consider India is only country which is very soft and flexible. We all know INDIA is democratic country in all matter take an example of religion, geography, policies etc. Our country is not vindictive it is so soft.
India is the one which have diverse culture. We born as a human but it the country which makes a good human being and teaches us way to live our life India is a great example. It values the emotion, felling and worship of people. In the limited line of my phase I would like to say that I love my INDIA.
|Nagendra said: (Oct 16, 2015)|
|Yes India is 100% soft nation. I will tell you the real time example. If a person did a crime that is RAPE then the punishment is 10, 20 or life long jail in only India. . Were as in China or Saudi with in 24 hours that person will be killed that's the law in other country. In India just like a punishment.|
|Shailu said: (Oct 3, 2015)|
|After considering our history my opinion is that yes India is soft country. History says that we have deal many problems with negotiation and tries for the peace in other nation too. This attitude is definitely useful at inter national level but at our national level we should strict enough for good governance and administration.|
|Vijaya Laxmi said: (Oct 1, 2015)|
|According to me, yes India is a soft nation we keep on listening and seeing in our news channels that what India is doing with its enemy and what other country is doing with their enemy for me its not that good enough because many context are there, where we have to pay for our goodness only.|
|Karan Khubani said: (Sep 26, 2015)|
|According to me INDIA is a soft nation. Due to political reasons and Negative points reputation of our country in world is not good. India always try to make peaceful relations with other countries which shows that India is a soft nation.|
|Komal said: (Sep 24, 2015)|
|My opinion is that our India is soft country because we have various community and they are following their own culture. Also every one has freedom to follow their own culture.|
|Ankit said: (Sep 23, 2015)|
|No, according to me it will be wrong to say that India is a soft nation, actually all these depends on the political will which reflect view of the nation but as overall we can't say that India is a soft nation. When it comes to give the reply to terrorism or cease fire violation we will no longer remain the soft nation, so according to me though India doesn't start the violations but while giving the replies to their enemies it is not soft nation.
We can see the war of India Pakistan in 1965, evolution of Bangladesh in 1971, Kargil war etc, and and coming to the internal matters it's Judicary take all the necessary action to give the justice to each we saw the cases of Suresh Kalmadi, Asaram Bapu, Yaakub Menon instead of their caste, racism, religion judgement comes, so saying saying India is soft nation will not be justifiable.
|Kiran said: (Sep 20, 2015)|
|Yes I agree that India is a soft nation because many times Pakistani people did cruel things at boarder but India didn't take any action intuitively. Our nation is such a soft nation still Rajiv Gandi assassinates are in the jail I think they recently they came out. If it is the case in the other countries they would be beheaded at that time itself.|
|Jay M said: (Sep 9, 2015)|
|Yes, I do think that India is a soft nation, would support this by starting from Dalai Lama to tolerating the nuisance of Pakistan cease fire violation. India is a soft nation. If it was contrast then all might have got the answer from the nation whose army is 2nd in the world i.e. India.|
|Yogesh Kumar said: (Sep 2, 2015)|
|I think any country is soft or hard is decided by the their peoples democrat and rule to punish a culprit. India is not a soft not hard, it is a notion of corrupted people & politicians.
1 - In case of Yakub Memon who involved in Mumbai blast every politician try to make his political profit by supporting Yakub Memon Yachika. No body thinks about the damage of country by this blast.
2 - If a common men goes in any government office then no officer do the work without any bribe.
3 - I think punishment for crime in India is only for a common men. Because in this country a celebrity and politician never get punishment for their crime they do.
Due to the all above reasons I think that it is a corrupted country, efforts are made to reduce the corruption. But I think it is not possible because we have political parties who are thought for their own party and interest, they do not think about the country.
|Rahul Jha said: (Aug 19, 2015)|
|Yes, I support the statement. India is a soft nation, and I think we have to proud on it, and due to this characteristics India is growing, developing, and coined its name one the face of the globe. Due to India's soft nation policy India have no India is free from war and have a good relationship with other countries globally.
But I want to make one thing clear that India is soft country but India is not a weak county. India is like a respectful women, who always wants peace and try to be away from controversy, but when it come to her and her family she appear as the most strong and challenging person for her enemy.
|Lohit said: (Aug 18, 2015)|
|I would like to say a few word on "is INDIA is a soft nation ".
According to me India is soft nation in some cases and hard in some cases. Actually it depends on the time and mostly it depends on the people and govt representatives who were living in this country as they are the part of the country.
There are few aspects by which we can say that India is a soft nation.
1. We live in the world which was inspired by great leader mahatma Gandhi which is non violence, so we the people of India will max try to avoid wars with the other countries. Because we know that the wars brings nothing except the decremented in the nation treasures and economy.
2. We try to maintain peace with the other countries in many ways as we know that India gives or provide home to many people from many countries.
There are some other aspects by which we can say that India is a hard nation.
1. As I previously told that soft or hard depends on the people and govt representatives living the country in past days we have seen many sexual activities, illegal trades, eve teasing and many other by this one can tell that India is a hard nation.
By this I conclude that in many ways India is a soft nation. We have to be proud that we were born in this great country.
|Mohit said: (Aug 8, 2015)|
According to me India is a soft nation, being a soft nation it has a positive impact also and a negative impact on various national issues. There are various reason to it.
1. India has various religious and group which doesn't let the leaders to take some hard decisions like on Kashmir issue after winning the war India can vacated the Pakistan occupied Kashmir but we didn't that soft behavior of India is paying off in terms of cease fire violation everyday in Kashmir.
2. There are various other issues like women harassment, eve teasing, rape cases etc on which we soft stand that lead to increase the no.of such cases.
3. As all of us know that India is a peaceful country, being a peaceful nation it help us to create good relationship with other countries which will lead to the development of our country.
|Glancy said: (Jul 26, 2015)|
|According to me I think India is soft country, India has always been very liberal, even in circumstances were it had to take critical decision like for example, early in 2010 or so India passed a law stating that people who are held in rapes cases will no more get a bail, but it hardly took a very few days to withdraw the same.|
|Siva said: (Jul 19, 2015)|
I have few points why India is a soft nation.
1. We actually maintain a good relation with the other countries following the principles our great leaders.
2. One more thing is that India is a country with different religious and we all are living with great relationships these can can showcase our greatness.
I have to say that in some cases India it has not show their softness to the social evils like women harassment, dowry, corruption etc.
|Vinayak said: (Jul 10, 2015)|
|Good morning friends,
My opinion is that our India is soft country because we have various community and they are following their own culture. Also every one has freedom to follow their own culture.
|Venny said: (Jun 29, 2015)|
After reading all the opinions, I think everyone has their own stand on this. But according to my knowledge India is a soft as well as a hard nation.
Soft because India is a sacrificing and tolerating country. When we see our history there are many intelligent minds who fought for our country and sacrificed their lives for the Indian freedom. On the other side India maintains the peace with all the countries, it welcomes all the foreigners, receives them as a guest people in India has a great family relationships.
While coming to hard, there are some of the social evils which are still making India as a developing country like dowry system, caste system, corruption in all sectors. Women domination etc. India becomes a perfect nation when Indian citizens know their responsibilities, when they come out of these social evils.
|Tarun said: (Jun 27, 2015)|
I think India is more soft than hard because in India we have various religious and groups who doesn't let the leaders to take some hard decisions in Kashmir issue even after winning the war we could have vacated the Pakistan army from Pakistan occupied Kashmir but we didn't and that soft behaviour of India is paying off in terms of cease fire violation every day in J&K.
|Gaurang said: (Jun 1, 2015)|
Well according to me India is soft as well as a hard nation. We follow the principles of both Gandhi and Bose.
We are trying to solve issue of Kashmir without any war or violence but on the other hand we fought a furious war against Pakistan in 1971 to liberate Bangladesh making it a independent nation. That was in terms of foreign policy. But within the country also we can see a soft and a hard nation.
|Pia Chopra said: (Apr 27, 2015)|
|Is India a soft nation?
Just like a coin has two sides similar is in this question too.
If we have a look at north eastern states which have different problems and peculiarities like these areas are less accessible to people moreover the porous nature of the border enables easy cross for criminals or terrorists. In addition to these they have education problems, electricity problems and many more!we have week foreign policies and no strong rules are made against punishments to the terrorists found. So in these cases India isn't taking actions and is a soft nation.
Whereas on the other side of it India's first interplanetary mission was introduced last year. We are the first Asian nation to reach Mars orbit, and the first nation in the world to do so in its first attempt. Plus nuclear progress in India also depicts that India isn't soft nation. We all know the conclusion of a "preliminary contract to develop a power plant in Gujarat" by Westinghouse and Nuclear Power Corporation of India Ltd (NPCIL) was announced in a joint statement by Indian prime minister Manmohan Singh and US president Barack Obama.
So all these points and many more concludes that India can be called a soft nation and cannot. But there are few things like terrorism etc where our country shouldn't show the soft phase rather fight with it aggressively!
|Shivansh Singh said: (Apr 21, 2015)|
|In my opinion Indian is a literally very soft nation. You can judge this view by the terror attack of 26/11 where the most danger terrorist Kasab caught during the attack and our government of that time spend lot of money at that terrorist.
We lost many honorable Intelligent and courageous officers now we are missing them because they were the very special creature of God and we didn't want to lose them but the bloody terror attack were the end of their life. I think this loose softness is in our law, our political leader not in our nation. Our nation is very very strong for stronger and soft for softer.
|Rishabh said: (Apr 11, 2015)|
|Yes. I thinks to be say that India now become a soft nation because if we see in our entire india, the India is a only nation which there where a lots of freat superior mans born and the greats work should be done by these such mans. Like we see our PM Mr. Narendra Modi released a lots of great ideas to secure our nation by giving his thought to develop our nation and to develop India.|
|Sushil said: (Apr 5, 2015)|
Talking in favour of the topic I would say, yes India is a soft nation with huge hard heart. Yes there are some incidents such as.
1. The father of India Mahatma Gandhiji declared that anyone can live in India and there will be no army for India. That was a soft decision taken for this soft nation.
2. Mr. Narendra Modi as in now very softly making India heading towards to become a developed nation simply by their soft ideas & roaming around the world and uniting Indians.
3. Also, this soft nation has soft spoken Indians everywhere in the world in whichever country we see and also at the higher level.
4. Indians are peace loving and a soft nation. A nation which teaches moral values.
|Ritesh Kumar Panda said: (Mar 27, 2015)|
|Yes a nice topic for discussion, I think India is continuously changing its status i.e. from soft to hard nation I want to verify my points by saying that our army personnel are brave one's but are not retaliate in that manner which can make the enemy to think upon our strength, as our soldiers gets be headed and we always remain reactive not proactive.
And in terms of hard nation we all have must heard about the war of 1971 in which our former primer minister Smt. Indira Gandhi took an proactive actions and attack on the house of east Pakistan's and stated a victory.
So by this action it is evident that our country is reactive as well as proactive.
|Ashiqi said: (Mar 13, 2015)|
I would like to share my opinion on this topic.
India is a soft nation as well hard nation. We can consider India as a soft nation because our Indian army will never harm to other countries army. They always try to keep good relationship with other countries.
Whereas hard nation, when opposing countries army attack us our Indian army will never keep them alive. Other countries like Pakistan will never want to keep a good relationship with us which will turn our Indian people to kill them for their tress pass to our country (India).
|Prashant Sekhar said: (Feb 27, 2015)|
|India is soft nation, India has faced three war with Pakistan in which India had only defense itself. They not attacked on other countries, they also faces problem with china, many times Chinese army entered the border of India and tried to create disturbance, threaten Indian government by making small silly practice.
On other hand Pakistani terrorist came inside the India and often disturb the piece of India, many incident like Mumbai attack, Delhi blast, head cut of Indian army over the border, Delhi bomb blast, banaras blast etc are the example are very sufficient to explain the terror in India by Pakistani terrorist, . I think India soul is lies in non violence. They had show a lot of patience and create clean image in front of all the country over the world.
And their effort has success in gaining the trust of other country. Today many country wants shake hand with India in various field. India knows very well that calmness is the basis of growth, if we look over the Pakistan situation we find that their growth rate gradually down day by day. They are not well in education, not well in infrastructure, not well in agriculture. If India hard, they could use their weapons against Pakistan.
In case of justice, in comparison of all other countries they have very soft rules against the criminal that"s why there crime rate is very high. Rape cases are in huge amount. In society of India you find that people from each religion having helping nature.
India is place of many religion, people of many religion lives there and with coordination, all religion are at equal level. All religion keep its own importance instead of this India is unite why because principle of coordination exist among us.
|Priya said: (Feb 14, 2015)|
|Hello, good evening to one and all present here. According to my view India is a soft nation. We follow different rules and regulation, many cultures also. We speak different language in our country. Even though many countries attack us we help then if they are n trouble. One of the best example is Mahatma Gandiji the father of our nation we got independence through non violence. So our India s soft nation.|
|Priya said: (Feb 11, 2015)|
According to me, yes India is a soft nation. Because many countries like that Pakistan, China attack our country. That time we are only fight against to them. We didn't attack that countries again. We want to friendship with them. Next is, we don't like violence. The death sentence are very rare in India. The government give second chance to them.
|Mounika said: (Jan 30, 2015)|
I feel pleasure to discuss on this topic because I feel proud to be an Indian. According to my view India is neither a soft nation nor a hard nation. It totally depends upon the aspects that we consider a country can be judged as a soft nation or a hard nation depending on nature of people in that nation rules and regulations in that nation relationship with other nation.
When we consider the nature of people in India we can say that India is a hard nation because now a days many people are indulging in various illegal activities like sexual abusement, corruption, dowry etc which makes us to feel that people are cruel minded which in turn makes our nation hard.
When we consider the rules and regulations in our nation we can say that India is a soft nation because the culprits were not punished fastly in India like in other countries and If they are punished in one court they will go to other court which in turn increases the crime rate of our nation. This is because of soft nature.
When we consider the relationship with other countries I feel that India is a soft nation because we welcome all country people without any differences. We follow different cultures, traditions though there are many attacks on us we never try to attack any country we just defend ourselves not because we do not have enough power or army but wars cause destruction.
We follow the policy of Mahatma Gandhi our father of nation non violence not to get indulged in wars so that our country progress does not fall down.
So overall I consider India is a soft nation but it should become strong nation and enforce strong rules and regulations for the well being of the country.
|Nitin said: (Jan 27, 2015)|
|India is neither a soft nation nor a hard nation, India is a diplomat nation. When it comes to attack of Pakistan in the border India is trying to solve the issue with diplomat manner. We cannot be soft nor hard on such issues because if your soft you loose a part of your country, if you try to be hard and go for a war your violating the rules of UNO.
The only way is diplomatic way. Another example while India is trying to make an international business it can't be soft, if it is soft we loose the profit, violate the law. If your hard you loose the business. If your diplomatic there are much chances of of making a fair business.
|Sakshi said: (Jan 19, 2015)|
My thoughts on the topic "Is India a soft nation?" is that yes, it is India is a soft nation and it will be turning softer and softer day by day and year by year under our respected Prime Minister Shri. Narendraji modi.
What softness means actually?
Softness in sitting quiet while the terrorist attack on us?, softness in passing comments rather than starting a change?, No not at all.
Its all about having a peaceful India, Where the oldies get respect, Womens should be empowered. Engineers should get jobs in MNCs, Every poor child has the right to study and take a stand in the society.
And of course "A CLEAN INDIA".
Clean in environment. Clean in politics, Clean in taking decisions, may it be in high court, supreme court or in political decisions.
INDIA IS A SOFT NATION.
The heart of the peoples are so helpful, so decent that makes us feel proud to be the citizen of India.
Yes I AM AN INDIAN.
|Ram said: (Dec 25, 2014)|
According to me India is a soft and strongest nation. We want to a powerful leader to make peaceful India. Many times our neighbour countries tried to attack us that time our shoulders gave our strong revenge. But even we are not trying to attack some other countries. So only we are soft nation and we are strongest.
|Umesh Karki said: (Nov 10, 2014)|
|Hello friends !
After reading some of opinions I think each one has its own stand on this. But I would like to say India is not strongest yet not even weak. It can respond very well to the countries which do not understand the language of peace and are eager to test India's patience and power.
It's a nation which is host for friends and ghost for enemies.
So our softness depends how you want us to be. We are the peacekeepers, softness is our nature but not weakness.
|Tanvith said: (Nov 7, 2014)|
I agree that India is a soft nation. Daily we are seeing that many issues like corruption, rape cases, murder happening but our government not taking serious action to this hence day by day it is raising.
In other side other country try to attack but we not going to do war instead of it we are developing the friendship. We are trying to create peaceful environment.
|Ankit said: (Oct 27, 2014)|
According to me, I don't think that our country has a reputation of a soft nation. Yes the ceasefire violations takes place from our neighbour countries either it be from Pakistan or China. But not straightly get involved in the war can't be considered to be the soft side of our country. Our country has always been a nation known for peace and that is the reason why a developed country such as Russia is standing with us since 1975. A very few nation withdraws his forces after occupying the enemies territory and it's the Indian forces under Lal Bahadur Shastri withdrew after reaching to lahore.
India always take harsh measures where it is needed. See for example the juvenile act or dowry system or the corruption or black money. Our prime minister when recently went to America he was welcomed with big hearts. This shows the reputation of our country outside as this could not be seen as the sympathy.
Overall I think India is a strong and powerful nation having filled with a lots of potential and the whole world knows that. That's why every nation be it China, Pakistan, Japan, America or Nepal wants to be a friend of our country.
|Kam said: (Oct 26, 2014)|
According to me, India is soft nation. Because every time we open TV or Newspaper we heard about the repeated ceasefire violation by pakistani ranger. And civilian living in the border areas is suffering from this heavy fire power by pakistan forces but India with such huge resources and strong army we have we are doing nothing to teach pakistan a lesson.
In other side chinese are entering our territory. And claiming that this land belong to china. And threatening our jawan. But government is doing nothing to stop this. We don't want war but we want peaceful environment to develop our nation. For this we have to deal with this problem quickly.
|Tejaswi said: (Oct 21, 2014)|
|Too much of been soft, tolerant and also peace talk indicates the inefficiency, the word Do or die policy has to be adopted, Dear friends just take an example of America its own WTC building was destroyed by the Terrorists ie, Osama bin laden at last he was hunted by American Army force, not to forget Osama was hunted not in his own country but in Pakistan.
This type of Mission really shows other county's not to take the privilege of Softness and no terrorists or country dare to do such damages to America in future,
Last word as per human tendency a person can sustain water at is neck level, but if it crosses his nose even he struggles and fight for his life, so India as to come out with its Soft gesture and show the world its strong abilities.
|Muneendra said: (Oct 13, 2014)|
Lets take a look at our side before talk our nation is soft or not. Because whole people of this country made our nation. In India, day to day development coming rapidly and people becoming educates and getting employing in different platforms. So some people changed as soft and automatically we can say our nation India is also soft. But, I think India is partially soft nation.
>There is no realistic in our politicians, Number of Fake parties established to ruling us and our country.
>Cast system, Illegal acts of rude people, Corruption etc. Still take a top role in our nation.
>Education system turned as business.
So It's depends only on people of our nation. It's not enough having some good people. When complete change will occur in people then only we can say that our nation India is soft. But still I think India is partially soft nation.
|Dilip Kumar said: (Oct 11, 2014)|
Well, according to me India is a soft nation. Everyone knows how many times other countries have attacked on India. For example Pakistan has attacked on India about two or three time and every time he has defeated but India always forgives Pakistan. China has also attacked on India.
|Manjary said: (Sep 28, 2014)|
|Each nation shows their soft part as well as cruel part. If we talk about India we are considered as soft as we respect our different culture, different people and different class. Our economic relation with different countries make us soft. But at some point we shows our cruelty as dowry system, rape cases, corruption etc.|
|Aditya said: (Sep 7, 2014)|
I won't consider our nation as a soft nation.
Just because we are not taking hard measures against terrorism or our boundary line disputes between our neighboring countries like china or Pakistan that doesn't mean that we are soft it just means we are taking the high road of non violence and are thinking to deal with such problems through mutual talks and understanding.
As we all knows that wars bring no good to the life of the people on any country. It just renders the growth and development of the country. It has a huge impact on the mass of people. There are a lot of examples on wars being fought between different country, and we all know that it has brought no good to the mankind.
If needed ours is a country with a huge military force, equipped even with nuclear powers, submarines and all sought of missiles, and it shows that we have the power to fight against any nation but this doesn't mean that since have the resources we have to use them. Wars only bring destruction and we should think about alternatives each time if we can avoid it.
Like our father of the nation said that "an eye for an eye will make the whole world blind ".
And so the wars will.
|Ritika said: (Aug 30, 2014)|
|According to me India is an extremely soft nation. Everyday we hear in the news about the Pakistani troops' repeated ceasefire violations and the difficulties the people living in those areas have to face. Each time there's a ceasefire violation people along with their small children living in those areas have to vacate their houses to move to a safer place. So we can imagine the difficulties in the lives of people living there.
We also repeatedly hear about the Chinese intrusions in various parts of our country especially Ladakh (recently Chumar and Demchok). There have been many terrorist attacks and attacks by Maoist and Naxalites as well. The soldiers of our country live in adverse conditions and without caring for their lives they protect us.
But, even after all this, what we get to hear is that India has either given a warning or cancelled a meeting with the country. India has a soft stand in these matters. Even after India raised objections of Pakistan's consultations with Kashmiri separatists, the Pakistan Govt still held a meeting with them. India really needs to think about this and take strict actions.
|Lalit said: (Aug 29, 2014)|
I don't think that not favouring the war means India is a soft country. As a developing nation we should avoid war. We already have a lot of internal problems. If India jumps in a war it will be pushed back in a situation where it was on 1972. Who would like to invest in a such country. They are provoking us just to stop us. India have a bright future ahead. War will create more poverty, instability and loss in GDP also.

|Whenever Pakistan troops breaks the cease fire or China military cross the boundary line. It becomes a national news, it becomes a prime time discussions in news channel. What I understand from listening these kinds of discussion that it is because of India the peace is maintained. We know India has a strong military, powerful weapons which can the make the massives damages in our neighbouring countries. And these things our neighbouring countries knows very well. They do the filthy acts to test the India patience, to provoke India to counter back it, to disturb peace in India.
War is not the solution. It takes millions of life. It destroy the peace. Take the example of on going war between Hamas and Israel, the ultimate suffers are the civilians, especially children and women.
What I believe that by not giving hard core answers to them India is trying to maintain the peace. But Yes India should adopt political tactics to give answers to them.

|For sure my country is still following what was taught by our "Father Of Nation". This country is soft at whatever was being done with this country. It never attacked back even when it was attacked it just defended itself.
Even within country rules and regulations are soft enough.
I Wonder what this country would have been achieved if it wasn't like that.
|Sachin Jani said: (Jul 30, 2014)|
It give me a great pleasure to discuss on this topic. I am patriot by nature and I love my country very much. But when it comes to India as a country I feel it has soft stand. Our stand has always being non violence. We do not want to retaliate when our borders have challenged. During recent times there has been many incident when cross border firing or Chinese troops crossing our border however we do not retaliate. Even if you don't want you are showing yourself as soft nation.
In my opinion we need some able, strong leader who can take decisions on our countries behalf and show the world that we are not nation.
|Drunken Snake said: (Jul 27, 2014)|
|I feel great pleasure in discussing about this topic. Thank you indiabix.
Coming to the point "Is India a soft nation?" According to me, it is a soft nation in some ways. Take for example, our border securities with Pakistan and China. Every now and then there are news of pakistani army attacking the Indian borders and chinese army crossing our country. If India were a strong country, in this context, they would've taken some action. By action I mean we need to reply. Tit for Tat. Rather then reconciling with these two countries, we need to send a message that India is not a weak country in terms of army strength. But, due to our corrupt political system, these two countries are always encouraged to do the same thing. This was the soft part of India, which could effect us negatively.
While on the other hand, we always welcome people from different countries. We never judge them based on any differences. This is the soft part of our nation, which is very positive indeed.
Also, we Indians are not known for violence. The impression of Indians in front of the whole world: "Peaceful people, nerds, socially awkward, smart, good future. And so on. " But, again this thing can create a wrong impression. It goes like this: "If you attack Indians, they won't retaliate. So, keep on kicking them until they do what we say. ".
At the end, I'd like to conclude that in order to be a strong and developing country we need to have a balanced approach in our attitude. As our honourable PM Mr. Narendra Modi said: "We won't eyeball anyone, but if someone does, we know how to deal with it. ".

|Hello friends these Mahesh I want say that we say India is soft nation because of its history nonviolence and peace and same nation has even history of biggest war on the world mahabharata which took place in India Indian is not soft nation just the government is soft if we were truly soft then why the youth had come upon roads for delhi rape case if we were soft nation people then why did these all happening indians are not soft Indian government is soft.|
|Rahul Sharma said: (Jun 8, 2014)|
|India is democratic and soft nation country. India's constitution and legislated are made under democracy rules. But it doesn't mean that we are living in civilized country most crimes, scams, corruption is happening because of soft or democratic rules. Anyone can do anything without any fear. For an example a illiterate or unwise person can become politician and designate as leader without checking his knowledge, skills or aptitude and then same person create crisis for our country. We are waiting for rarest crime or brutal incident and once such thing happen then we started to think to reform laws or change constitute. We don't have strict rules and regulations because of soft nation and that soft skills cannot help our country to take growth.|
|Divya Cirikuru said: (Jun 3, 2014)|
In my opinion India is really a soft nation. India is strictly following the rules of Mahatma gandhi like non-violence in terms of implementing punishments to the criminals with respect to all regards and our nation is still developing nation because of its softness.
|Krishna Pradhan said: (May 4, 2014)|
|Yes, I am sure that India is a soft country for softness of polity, economy, culture, law and against other aspects due to historical background. India gives softness to foreign country for their wicked. First India thinks and then takes decision against him. For softness of our country foreign people like to India. India gives respect to foreigner in his area. In our country, more to more religious place available through in our India from Himalayas to Kanyakumari, those places are suitable for pilgrims place to place. That place gives more some to any person by seeing.
Another situation for softness of our country terrorisms is growing day by day. That is the weakness of our government.
Softness is the good quality of India. But it neglects to our country's movement. So large number of poverty persist by our govt.
|Prashant said: (May 4, 2014)|
|Hello friends. Since ancient time our country always be a country of saints, sects and yogis who followed nonviolence strategy to each person rather he is their friend or foe. They also followed Atithi Devo Bhav, which showed softness in their heart for all persons and nature also. We are also following these things in our government policies too. We Indians have flaw of tolerance, this showed pre-independence and post independence too.
For e.g. After partition, India agreed with Pakistan over Indus water treaty in 1960, where India agreed to give 80 percent water to Pakistan, in lieu of it Pakistan attacked 3 times on Indian and we still talks about brotherhood, fraternity, peace, harmony with Pakistan.
If we take example of Chine, China also holds the same way, foremost he encroached the Panchsheel Principles and after it he attacked on India in 1962 and acquisition over India land. This land is equal to 28 thousand square km, this land famous as Askai Chin.
In 1971 India Pakistan war India captured over 90 thousand soldiers of Pakistan Army, but they liberated by India in Shimla Pact, this was another example of India's image.
After 26/11 attacked, India was assured that these attacks are conducted by Pakistan but rather take harsh action Indian government allowed Pakistani cricket team to play cricket in India.
Indian government should make hard policies specially for China and Pakistan so that they fear from it.
Present example of India's softness is that, Chinese soldiers infiltrated in Indian sector Dolat Beg Oldi and settled their camps over there and showed banners to Indian Army to go from there because it is their land, Indian government did not take any harsh action on it. India-China still have contradiction over their boundary line there is no barriers between Indian-China boundary, so Chinese soldiers easily come inside Indian boundary and shows their right on it.
If India wants remove 'soft nation' tag from itself he should make strict foreign policies and should take part and stand firmly in foreign issues and should favor poor countries on international level.
|Sayed Kokab Habeeb said: (Mar 29, 2014)|
|What makes a nation soft is.
1. The way its population lives.
2. The way the laws are governed and.
3. The way relations it has with the other nations.
One of the meanings of soft is something that gives you a pleasant feel and calmness. But, when we think about the people of India a picture of diff communities flush our minds, who are intolerant to each other and are ready to pounce if allowed. Yes India is soft because in since independence it has seen a rift among different societies. Here soft means some thing which can be easily cut or crushed.
Yes, India is soft as its taking so long for the govt to punish the the 16 dec rape culprits or it took so long to hang afzal guru. Yes India is soft (weak) which cannot be firm to take quick decisions.
We are soft like a wool which has the capacity to tolerate all the injustice and sufferings.
But yes we are soft because after all the wrongs we still want our nation to be a better place to live. Yes we are soft because when damini suffers or nido dies, we all join hands to fight for their justice. We all cried for our Sachin when he retired. And we celebrate together when we win against pakistan in a match.
This is what makes India soft and our future generation ll make it soft like a silk where all of us ll glide smoothly on path of prosperity and success.
|Devikasharmi said: (Feb 8, 2014)|
This is Devikasharmi, I am proved to say about my Indian country is soft nation. Compare to another country here only the different kinds of people living together. Like brother and sister, why I am say like this means in our school days we were give the declaration about we living together like brother and sister, so that the declaration helps to living together with different kinds of people here.
Here another plus point is that in our Indian culture & nature.
In our Indian country is like a family. Family means making lot of love with others. If love is there means there is no hardness. And also other country peoples are visiting our country because of in our country culture.
The main thing is that when we see the Indian map its look like a wonderful shape compare to other country. Like that inside also having lot of adjustment & lot of love everything include that. That's is our Indian soft nation.
|Arun said: (Feb 5, 2014)|
I am totally disagree with the fact that India is a soft nation, only on the basis of India is not taking stern steps against Pakistan and china. What type of steps we are talking about 'war', it is really a solution to any problem as we all know war can't bring peace to any nation. As we all know that Pakistan has nukes, if we try to fight with pak it can use that and in response we will use our arsenals, finally no Indian or Pakistani will remain to bitch each other. Is it a real solution ?
If it is very simple like that why their is increase crime rate in Iraq and Afghanistan after USA attack.
If we talk about corruption and it is not due to politician but due to people,
Because minister is corrupted just because bribing them, they have power just because we vote them, it is our responsibility to decide to whom I will vote.
We are still in the list of developing countries not only just because of faulty political system but because of us also and we should accept this and at the same time expecting from some one else try to do something for our nation also as a responsible citizen.
|Jhon said: (Jan 29, 2014)|
1). 99% Bomb blasts/terrorism done by one community still our govt mum on them (before solving any problem you must recognize problem with that particular community).
2). Because we are divided by too many race/religion etc it is very easy to create turmoil in India so India very cautious about it (once we united it will change).
3). For grab FDI/Tech from developed countries India must project its soft image.
|Balwan Singh said: (Jan 5, 2014)|
In my opinion India is very soft nation because here no strict law and regulation against corruption, theft or any social evils. Many scam have been occurred but no example punishment had been given. In country like Saudi Arabia no one even can scare at the ladies here newspapers are filled with rape cases daily.
In china has given death penalty to a corrupt politician recently.
We have not taken any strict action against Pakistan after being faced so much terrorist activities and ceasefire in kashmir.
|Ap Singh said: (Nov 19, 2013)|
|I also support the statement "India is a soft country". As we know that rules and regulations are not followed strictly in INDIA. Actually we are also responsible for it. As the statement"do not split this place" is write anywhere but we do this and anyone do not oppose it. But in US a big punishment and penalty is taken by government. INDIA is a soft nation in nature but not in other matter. In my view, INDIA should not be polite in the matter of rules and regulation.|
|Sairam said: (Nov 5, 2013)|
|Well no doubt India is a soft nation, as we can see that we are helping to our enemies like Pakistan during floods and helped them by sending money and we have soft corner on people came to us for their safety and if they take that as advantage then will certain pay for that. We are always saying peace because it will cause cause good things War will cause so many thins that we can expect.|
|C.T.Selvan said: (Nov 4, 2013)|
|India can be a soft at the same time strong. In reality our nation seems soft at the same time sound weak.
No neighboring country including tiny nations respect or admire India. Pakistan attack, Chinese troops intrusions, though Sri Lanka made written agreement to give equal rights rights to tamils it is not ready to do so, US dismay to our respectable leaders in the name security check and so on.
INDIA SHOULD BE SOFT AND THE SAME TIME STRONG IN ALL MANNERS. Economic, social, self discipline, defense etc.
|Sumith said: (Oct 20, 2013)|
|I have been a supporter of Indian army and has been closely monitoring the country's development for over 10 -12 years. I am immensely proud if our country's armed forces. But very recently I have bent very disappointing with the Govt's attitude when it comes to Pakistan.
I am not an advocate of war because war causes death to innocent people of both countries. If a nation for example Israel, I s attacked across the border, Israel will retaliate. If their citizens are attacked, they make it their prmie motive to hit back. But when it comes to India, Pakistan has been isolating ceasefire for decades and India has kept silent. What is the point of having great military developments when you don't use them. I understand Pakistan is a nuclear nation. But does that mean we turn a blind eye for every time Pakistan troops fire across the border. India is 10 times capable but I think Pakistan knows India is a soft nation and they are taking maximum advantage of it.
|Zeeshan said: (Oct 18, 2013)|
Yes of course India is soft nation. This is positive point of our nation and we must proud on it. The father of nation Mahatma Gandhi teaches the world about soft and non-violence behavior. India has different religions and each religions say about soft behavior this also contribute in soft nation. Also we not show the aggressive step in any war. But last thing I want shear is that its OK our nation is soft nation but we must be aggressive against corruption and other countries attack and also against nagsalized.
|Chinmoy Nagarkar said: (Oct 10, 2013)|
The term "soft state" was coined in 1960s by Gunnar Myrdal, who was a Swedish Nobel Laureate economist, sociologist & politician. The term was used to describe a society which was incapable of imposing the right development policies and is unwilling to act against corruption at all levels. Today, this phrase befits country like India. Historically, India has always been a soft nation; otherwise it would not have been at the receiving end of foreign invaders and colonies for over many centuries. This situation transpired because of India's lack of unity amongst its princely states. Today's independent India is a sovereign, secular and democratic republic, thus it is duty of government to safeguard these pillars of constitution for goodwill of our country.
In the recent past there have been innumerable instances where India has failed to give a fitting response on international issues. India's policy with Pakistan has been very embarrassing especially when it comes to persecution of 26/11 perpetrators, border infiltration, extra-judicial killing of Indian prisoners etc. We also witnessed another embarrassing moment when there was 20 km Chinese incursion into Indian territory with impunity, and brazenness to the extent of installing bivouacs and claiming it as their own land. Least one could do was to engage in a military skirmish that would have given very strong signal. Also Sri Lanka in down south continues to threaten our innocent fishermen by detaining them without any trial and we also saw how our government initially had gone soft on two Italian naval guards who were responsible death of our fishermen (mistaking them as pirates), later backtracked because of wide scale media & public furore. These instances are detrimental to sovereignty of our country.
I fail to fathom out our government's stand with international affairs despite the credential that India possesses. India is the world's 7th largest country by size, 3rd largest army, 4th largest GDP and the 2nd most populous country. Yet India plays a negligible role in international affairs. Countries far smaller to India in size, population and economy exert a much larger influence on international affairs. The reason for this aforementioned crisis is leadership paralysis and lacunae in decision making. The super-powers of the world exert tremendous amount of powers essentially because they have strong leaders that hold tremendous decision making ability. We need a very strong and a decisive leadership that adheres to English idiom "when going gets tough, tough gets going", a leadership which uses its clout to exert powers and give out a very strong signal to the world that we are going stay silent over atrocities being committed upon our citizens. Thus I feel now the time has come to shed this image of "soft nation" because if this kind of inaction continues in spite of prevailing hostilities and enmity around our neighbourhood we'll soon be caught between rock and a hard place.
|Shweta said: (Oct 2, 2013)|
|Yes, India is a soft nation. And it is not really a negative point at all. Our freedom was successful only because of non violent path which Mahatma Gandhi lead. And the fluent running of the most diverse country is only because of this softness. We should keep this in mind that India is capable of dealing with any tension on the border with the help of its defence forces yet the path chosen is softness in every respect because it will be the most mature way to deal with problems which can affect our future generations.|
|Veer said: (Sep 24, 2013)|
|I think India is a soft nation. Being soft is not bad we just follow our great legacy.
Our history tells us that whatever be the matter 'peace at any cost' is remained our last stand. Indians are soft it does not mean we will remain calm in any situation if enemy will try to destroy our culture, to hurt our sovereignty we will protest it, if needed we can die for it.
|Harry said: (Sep 21, 2013)|
In my point of view, India is a Soft Nation. It has been shown recently on the "Delhi gang rape". The criminals who are involved in death of the brave heart, they are getting punished, just one week before. This is what we expect from our Nation. Our government will be Hang the four persons. The punishment is not enough for them. They should be punished immediately where the brave heart dead. But they are lived 8 months till the Incident. Such the way our Nation is treating them.
The punishment is appreciable. But it would given to the court immediately.
|Ankush said: (Sep 14, 2013)|
|YES I truly believe that we are soft nation because we avoid the violence in every possible way. We always try to find a peaceful solution for everything. That is the legacy Mahatma Gandhi has left for us but I believe time has for being soft.
Hard action is necessary to set up the example. In our nation Criminals do not get punishment because of our twisted laws and softness of constitution.
|Madhu said: (Sep 12, 2013)|
|According to me India is not soft nation. It may be misunderstood by many of them that it is a soft nation and violence is going on all over the country and there are many incidents supporting this. When many good officers who want to develop our nation are being blamed by political leaders then we cannot imagine the situation of ordinary people. Politics in our country is not in a secure way because it is being used for selfish needs.
Many good leaders like APJ Abdul Kalam are required for our country to make it as a soft nation. India is pretending to be a soft nation which is really not true. If we take an example of Delhi incident no one can imagine her condition.
|Mathan said: (Sep 5, 2013)|
|Hi, I am Mathan.
India is a soft nation, why because it is the only country that avoid violence as much as possible. We might heard upon Hiroshima, Nagasaki bomb blast. It is an unnecessary blast. While comparing our country with them we may not be at the top regarding technology, but regarding peacefulness we are better and best.
|Sudher said: (Sep 5, 2013)|
|In my opinion India is a soft nation because of diversity in the field of religion, culture and population. And also Indian foreign policy is softer in nature. It never invaded any other country, it respects UNO It can even withstand against any developed nations.|
|Saurabh said: (Sep 2, 2013)|
|India is a soft a nation the reason behind this is:
1. There is a different religions in India.
2. Political system is so soft any body can enter.
3. The people thoughts and Indian law is soft.
And we are so soft that's why the dollar increase up to 66Rs.
|Prateek Sharma said: (Aug 23, 2013)|
|From my point of view India is a soft nation. Softness is good for any country but sometime India get more soft towards terrorist & some other corruption. Soft is in the the way that different-2 religion people are live together with peace. And India also invites.
Foreigner and it doesn't think more what the other countries has done, it welcome every country people with open heart. But India has to get little harder towards his enemy, for e. pakistan attacked on India no of time but India always forgive this. But doesn't forget about ajmal kasab what India do with him, if India is soft then it doesn't mean it can't be hard. (India is country of loving heart people. :).
|Bindu said: (Aug 21, 2013)|
|There is misconception between soft nation and soft people. Yes India is a nation with kind hearted soft people but when the matter is of the nation, India is a tough country with patriotic children. We don't mind giving our lives for our nation when we get a chance to save our country. India is advancing in all the means and challenging many countries in many ways. Therefore Indians are soft only in their words and action but not in terms of development and attitude.|
|Abhisek,Kolkata said: (Aug 17, 2013)|
|In my opinion India is a soft nation because of the following reasons:-
1. After independence India have only retaliated 5 times to it's enemies though they have harmed India a thousand times. Though India have a strong defence, a proper lesson to it's enemy was never taught.
2. America came from 15,000 kms away & killed the world's deadliest terrorist within 10 years in a foreign continent while India couldn't capture or kill many underworld dons for 20 years though they are hiding in India's neighbouring countries within it's own continent.
3. If the history of India is seen for 2500 years, India have hardly successfully repulsed any foreign invasion & have always fallen dependent to foreign powers.

|Hello, I feel INDIA is not a soft country. The country itself reflects people in INDIA so what I mean to say is people in INDIA are not soft all the time. The behaviour of youth, politicians, common man everything is changed. Wherever and whatever the situation violence is playing a main role. Due to entertaining media (movies) youth is stepping into wrong way.
So friends we must be soft enough to situations that we handle and be make our country soft.

I being a citizen of INDIA proudly say that my country is undoubtedly a SOFT nation.
1). We can answer the brick with a stone.
2). Politicians reflect only what we are.
3). We have reservation system to bring out backward classes out of their misery.
4). It brings JUSTICE to underprivileged society.
|Swathi said: (Jul 25, 2013)|
|I agree that India is a soft nation. But in one aspect our country is not soft. The case is giving capital punishment such as death sentence. Our constitution was borrowed from British constitution. Once there was death sentence in constitution of Britain. But they have eradicated it now. I like to say that India must be soft in this aspect. Because a person who haven't committed the offense may be punished. But our country should not be soft to people who were involved in corruption, abuse of power etc. They must be punished severely.|
|Chandana said: (Jul 19, 2013)|
|I don't think India is a soft nation in every situation as it is having lot of criminal rates, corruption etc., but when compared to other countries we can say India is somewhat soft.
The softness of a nation resembles peace, women welfare, economy growth etc., even we can make our country soft by changing ourselves nothing but the way of thinking of youth or our people should be changed. After coming to certain age we should not blame others as it was the age we can think what is right and what is not so we can live with morality and make our country the best.
|Partha Rudra said: (Jul 4, 2013)|
|Hello everybody, according to me INDIA is a soft as well as patient country. Here are the reasons.
We do not invade any country for the zeal of territory. We always welcome other countries heartily, no matter major or minor, poor or rich. When our country is tried to harm (Mumbai terror attack) by other countries we didn't lose our patient rather we tried to solve it by informing Pakistan to take action on them, though we could answer the brick with a stone.
Now if we see the internal side of the country there are some factors like corruption, crime against women, murder etc which are violating the softness of our country. So in order to put an end to all these, it is not wise to always blame the politicians because politicians only reflects those what we are. We have to change our mentality, we have to change the way we observe things if we want a better INDIA in future, a INDIA bearing the title "soft".
|Suresh Mallesh said: (Jun 29, 2013)|
|India is a Soft nation but this does not limit it to be also known has a strong emerging nation.

|Shalu said: (Jun 27, 2013)|
I don't think that INDIA is a soft nation as if we all consider current situations. Crime rate and corruption is increasing day by day the reason is humanity is reducing this is the main reason why INDIA is not considering as a soft nation.
If INDIA mainly concentrate on this points then definitely INDIA will become a soft nation to every INDIAN. By considering other countries opinion we just can't say as our country is Soft Nation, we know what or country is right. So, try develop humanity in people for our better future.

|India originally name belongs to brave king who is soft by nation, who play with lion but do not kill him and this is nation which is also soft by nature and being soft is good thing and which is worth to the country.
I am fully agree with statement that India is soft nation.
1st-Whether it is talk (line of control) or it is border. India is also fighting with corruption, unemployment and disease like poverty also with perseverance.
It can be seen in many ways that India behave in soft manner.
2nd-In India are so many religion but all these cast or religion that they are Indian in last.
So I say proud India is great and soft nation.
|Sayandeep said: (Jun 15, 2013)|
India is a tolerant nation for ages. It has given shelter to many, not invaded any other land in spite of having an envious armed force. And, at the same time, it has always shown resilience under precarious situation, when other nations tried to invade it. But, it's a fact that India is still a bit too considerate to corrupt people. It's a shame to admit that a majority of our politicians is known to have involved in several scams in their political career. Our constitution is lenient to dangerous criminals.
Even a rapist who tortures a woman to a possible moral demise, who fiddles with a woman's dignity and leaves her agonizing in intolerable pain- physical as well as mental, can easily do away with an exemplary capital punishment, save a very few exceptional cases. These result in an increasing crime and corruption within the country. If we cherish a true independent free nation, we should ensure freedom in every respect. In our case, freedom from crime and corruption is the need of the hour.
From this viewpoint, the attribute 'soft' for our nation, which appears to be so true, is indeed derogatory to the toughness of the nation called India.
|Alisha said: (Jun 15, 2013)|
|Hi, everyone. I think India is not so called 'soft nation' because from the very past it has been giving residence to many religions and caste and making their laws in a manner so that everyone can get the same right and freedom. Also, it has 3rd strongest army even, empowered with nuclear weapons though it has not invade into the other country's freedom. But in the same thing when Pakistan did in Kargil fight it fought for owning the land of Kashmir. So, from this perception India can be seen as an independent, tough and tolerant country.
On the other hand when it comes to the case of terrorism and corruption it has always shown some lackadaisical strategies. In our Parliament above 50% of the members are infested with corruption. And there is a big gap of power between poor and the rich people which actuates the corruption. If the criminals are rich or empowered by the politicians they are not properly punished with respect to the crime they have committed. So, first of all we should remove the corruption among the politicians.
So, finally I want to say that India is not 'soft' but towards terrorism and corruption it should make stringent laws where all citizens will be treated in a same manner.
|Minakshi Kumari said: (Jun 14, 2013)|
|I appreciate above discussed opinions and I agree to it that India is a soft nation due to the forgiveness nature of Indian people and soft Indian laws towards criminals. In Indian culture life has a great importance, that's why a very few hanging punishment is given here. Jail as the punishment to the criminals is given so that under rules and regulations they can become the good persons.
But the criminals are misusing this policy of India. Once their punishment period overs they again commits the crime to be fearless. For example rape crimes are increasing at rapid rate due to soft punishment policy for rapers.
|Shubham Wahi said: (May 22, 2013)|
India is not a soft nation. It is one of the tough countries. In this country all the religions are living together with love and unity this shows that how much India is diverse but still have unity and unity is always powerful. Our country wants peace not fighting, It always bow down in front of everyone it doesn't mean it has fear but it doesn't understand anyone less than itself and give everyone respect. From the independence till now India has grown very fast and has become one of the strongest nation of the world. It has faced many wars and has defeated with its force. Not only this India has third powerful armed force in the world and it has also made missiles like AGNI, BRAHMASTRA and PRITHVI. It never let criminal go without punishment and has also defeated terrorists like Afzal Guru and Kasab.
India gives the reply of brick with stone. Whether it is the talk of LOC or it is border. India is also fighting with corruption, unemployment and diseases like poverty also with perseverance. Against black money also It is fighting and not only this India has given scientist like Sunita Williams, APJ Abdul Kalam, CV Raman etc. If anyone will raise the voice against India I don't think we are going to leave him free not only outsider but also if insider would do something illegal would be strictly punished.
Even today also we Indians have hot blood like Subhas Chandra Bose, Sardar Vallabh Bhai Patel and Bhagat Singh. So we would never tolerate any kind of wrong task.
|Deepika said: (May 15, 2013)|
|Yes, India a soft nation but as we all know it is a over soft nation. It is because in other countries criminals are treated very badly but in India they are treated very softly specially if anyone is related to some political background. In these days many rape cases are coming over and their criminals are also caught but literally no actions are taken instead of giving them lifetime imprison. Their should very tough action have to be taken so any other person can't do such type of nonsense thing.|
|Sudheer Kumar Kalyanam said: (May 14, 2013)|
|India is not at all a soft nation. Indians fought against the British all from over the country and achieved freedom which has develop true nationalism and helped to form a largest democratic country. In 1962 India fought with China for border disputes even after knowing that China is more powerful country than India. In 1999 India fought against Pakistan during Kargil War and taught them a lesson. India has developed an army which is the 4th toughest army in the world.
It has also got 7th toughest naval force and 4th toughest Air Force in the world. But India supports peace does not Quarrel or disturbs other countries freedom as it has adverse effects on our economy such as high Inflation, decrease in GDP, increase in poverty. Courts impose severe punishments to terrorists like KASAB of Mumbai blasts who disturb national integrity. Corruption and politics might have made India look somewhat softer. Indian strategies are one of the finest strategies in the world. Indians are fighting against corruption too. Incredible growth in the field of Media is also a good sign. So do not think India is a soft nation.

I think India is soft nation and its fact. India is not weak country. It can accept any challenge. These days might be India has shown softness on the issues like Mumbai attack. And I am also love my country.|

|Good morning to all,
As it asked about the softness of India then yes, India is a soft nation and I am proud to be a citizen of such a soft and great country, but at some point India shows excess softness. We all know pakistan always create big problems for India. India always got enough evidence of Pakistan hand in inhuman activity like terrorism and India has always took first step for the good relationship with Pakistan but pakistan always betrayed the India so now it is enough and it's time to take some tough decision against Pakistan.
India is not soft towards pakistan but towards other country also, India always ready to help other country in their tough time like India helped sri lanka in fight against LITTE and also helped after TSUNAMI. Recently china entered in Indian territory but India showing softness towards china. India is a soft nation but at some point it should take some tough decision.
Is India a Soft Nation?
