Indian Armed forces have a history of competence but have never shunned responsibility like the Afghan Armed forces, Jay Kotak, the 31-year-old son of billionaire veteran banker Uday Kotak, said on August 17.
Jay, the Associate Vice President at Kotak Mahindra Bank, took to Twitter to discuss the current volatile situation in Afghanistan after the Taliban take over and said: “Afghanistan proves that military competence is not just about billions of dollars of weapons and training — but about culture, respect, and willingness to fight for something.”
He added: “India’s armed forces have a history of competence and would never abdicate responsibility. We must be grateful.”
Commenting further on the Afghan Taliban takeover, Kotak said that one lesson that must be learned from the Afghanistan crisis was that “hard power” mattered.
