LAHORE: The Indian military fears a =E2=80=98Chinese aggression=E2=80=99 in less than a 
decade, the Hindustan Times has reported, and claimed that a secret 
exercise =E2=80=93 called =E2=80=98Divine Matrix=E2=80=99 =E2=80=93 by the army=E2=80=99s military operations 
directorate has visualised a war scenario with the nuclear-armed 
neighbour before 2017.

=E2=80=9CA misadventure by China is very much within the realm of possibility 
with Beijing trying to position itself as the only power in the region. 
There will be no nuclear warfare but a short, swift war that could have 
menacing consequences for India,=E2=80=9D said an army officer, who was part of 
the three-day war games that ended on Wednesday. In the military=E2=80=99s 
assessment, based on a six-month study of various scenarios before the 
war games, =E2=80=9CChina would rely on information warfare (IW) to bring India 
down on its knees before launching an offensive=E2=80=9D, the report claimed.

The war games saw generals raising concerns about the IW battalions of 
the People=E2=80=99s Liberation Army (PLA) carrying out hacker attacks for 
military espionage, intelligence collection, paralysing communication 
systems, compromising airport security, inflicting damage on the banking 
system and disabling power grids. =E2=80=9CWe need to spend more on developing 
information warfare capability,=E2=80=9D he said. The war games dispelled the 
notion that China would take at least one year for a substantial 
military build-up across India=E2=80=99s northeastern frontiers. =E2=80=9CThe Tibetan 
infrastructure has been improved considerably. =E2=80=9CThe PLA can now launch 
an assault very quickly, without any warning,=E2=80=9D said the officer.

=E2=80=9CThe military believes that China would have swamped Tibet with sweeping 
demographic changes in the medium term. For the purposes of Divine 
Matrix, China would call Dalai Lama for rapprochement and neutralise 
him. The top brass also brainstormed over India=E2=80=99s options in case 
Pakistan joined the war too. Another apprehension was that Myanmar and 
Bangladesh would align with China in the future geo-strategic 
environment,=E2=80=9D said the Hindustan Times.
