Here is an interesting news clip :http://headlines.sify.com/1407news2.html?headline=Ex-Army~officer~forms~suicide~squad~to~attack~Pakista n

With details outlined in the newsclip, i cannot
help getting suspicious about the whole patriotic thing. What this Colonel is doing is similar to the concept of Madarsa training. The purpose of Indian Military is to train people to die for the country if need arises... why should a civilian be allowed to form his own army and that too by charging (Rs.1500) the volunteers themselves, in the name of patriotism? I cannot help but think of ulterior
motives also.
