Posted on 01/23/2013 3:45:50 PM PST by JerseyanExile
Officials in India-administered region of Kashmir have issued an advisory to residents to be prepared for a potential nuclear, biological or chemical war by building bomb-proof basements or bunkers and stocking up of essential supplies for two weeks.
The official advisory follows a recent flare up of tensions between India and Pakistan along the de facto Kashmir border. Two Indian soldiers and three Pakistani soldiers died in January near the Line of Control (LoC) in the worst bout of cross-border violence since both nations declared a ceasefire in November 2003.
People should construct basements where the whole family can stay for a fortnight, read the advisory, which was published Monday in the newspaper, Greater Kashmir.
If there is no basement, residents should construct bunkers in their front yards with toilet facilities, the notice said.
People were also asked to stock up candles, battery-operated lights, radios and non-perishable food and water.
The notice said that in the event of a nuclear attack, motorists should dive out of their cars in the direction of the flash to save themselves from being crushed by their vehicles.
Local officials maintained that the warning was only a part of a routine campaign to educate the public and that the information had been available on a government website for some time.

Oh ok so in your opinion we should just stay inside the car and continue driving towards flash. I get it. What more sound survival advise would you have for us? Please tell us.
Killing Muslims....Isn’t that the whole reason why India acquired nukes while US was ARMING the Pakis. And India just hanged one muzzy terrorist. And what did US do? They let off David Headley with a minor sentence for the Mumbai attacks.
So Mr Norm Lenhart ....please tell me again what were you saying about killing/catering to Muslims?
The only thing ‘diplomacy’ with muslims ever led to was more bloody and brutal war later as they build up their arms (with our help Oh JOY!). If people took their heads out of ‘the sand’ for 2 min, they would realize that.
But instead, thanks to the 21st century Chamberlans, we will eventually see those glass facilities.
Anyone have any idea what the best guess is on the typical “yield” of the Indian and Pak nukes?
I think he was referring to George Harrison’s mentor Antoine “Motormouth” Ghandi. But I could be wrong.
Yeah since Indians are not whiteys they’re isn’t a whole lot they are capable of understanding given their such limited cranial capacity. Glass parking lot, glass ski resort..that’s all they understand. Whatever you say man.
“Gh” is common in English. “Dh” isn’t. So it’s not surprising that people who remember that there’s an “h” somewhere in the name so often get it wrong.
I think the Indians on the thread think I’m siding with the islamos for some reason.
I have no idea who that is and what it has to do with the article.
India is fond of saying war with Pakistan is imminent.
Please tell me how exactly one is safer without 5000 pounds of steel around them.
Do you even think before posting?
Not at all. India isnt saying, just quietly preparing for whatever it is that may come from Pakistan.
Look, do you REALLY think Pak is going to nuke you?
Well, at least one guy believes the human body is proof against a nuclear pressure wave so I wouldn’t worry much about what they think.
Because they won’t survive their brilliant wisdom regardless.
I guess I don’t. I am just a stupid Indian not a genius fast mouthAmerican like you, so help me out. What is your sound survival advise? Stay inside the car and be wrapped around and crushed inside the 5000 pounds of steel?
Beside cars in India hardly over 2000 pounds.
I’d advise you start thinking better of yourself. No one here said you were a ‘stupid Indian”.
Second, what yo you think the force of a blast wave will do to your body if it can crush a car?
You are dead one way or the other.
I never even said anything, I have only been asking you what is your advise. You sound like you have the perfect advise with all that vast knowledge and first hand experience on how to deal with nuclear blast wave. Us silly mortal Indians only want to learn more from you. Tell us Norm.
Kashmir is hilly. It’s got hills and mountains everywhere. If I see a flash I would try to get behind the nearest mountain between me and the flash. It’s not much but it better then flying around inside a car. That’s what I would do.
What is your sound survival advise?
Can you explain why you think you’re targeted?
