© Thinkworks Pvt Ltd – Former Deputy Chief of the Indian army, Lt. General Zameer Uddin Shah, he spent an entire lifetime in the army, fighting on every battlefield. He was there in the 1971 Bangladesh war, he fought the Punjab insurgency, he’s fought insurgencies in the North East. He was the general that was brought in to quell the Gujarat riot. He is not only best equipped to give insights about life in the trenches but also what it means to represent a certain kind of identity within the army. How did his identity as Muslim officer colour his experience in the army? And what deos it say about the representation of minority communities in India’s public life.
