Red Jihad: The Battle For South Asia is a political and military thriller by Sami Ahmad Khan.

Summary of the Book

In the near future, Pakistan has turned into a complete democracy and seeks to reconcile its stance with India. However, not everyone wants peace. A jihadi leader called Yasser Basheer travels to the Red Corridor and allies himself with an Indian Naxalite commander, Agyaat. They aim to unleash India’s experimental intercontinental ballistic missile on the subcontinent. The missile changes its path and arcs towards Pakistan. In a military response, Pakistan declares war on India. The ensuing battle threatens the peace of the entire subcontinent and begins to draw several other countries into the fray.

Great Thriller! Indian Military fiction has Come of Age

A Must Read- highly engrossing, lucid and disturbingly prescient. I was referred by a friend in the Services and I'm glad I was! I read it in one sitting. Full of mind-numbing twists, Red Jihad is an intelligent, informative, fun-filled and fast-paced entertainer that is loaded with drama, thrill and suspense. All in all, total infotainment! Go for it and try something new, you won't regret it!

Must Read! Amazing Novel!

This is a delicious book, I daresay. Gripping, fast-paced, engrossing, and very entertaining. The perfect combination of entertainment and information, with the right balance between masala and literariness. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to read more about the South Asia we live in and is concerned in the direction we are headed, and wants to read more than just college romances/love stories which have flooded the markets these days.

For a debut novel, Khan treats, quite impartially, thoroughly and sensitively, complex ideologies and takes us on a whirlwind tour of India,...

For a debut novel, Khan treats, quite impartially, thoroughly and sensitively, complex ideologies and takes us on a whirlwind tour of India, Afghanistan, US, Nepal, Pakistan, Iran and China, etc. I finished it in one go. Red Jihad is a Must Buy and Must Read! Highly recommended, for I can sense that this novel is going to set a milestone in Indian Thriller Writing.

De-profundis-------A Must Read!!!!!

It feels I just finished watching a Christopher Nolan movie. The normal sense of the reader’s anticipation is always betrayed by the apt turns and twists in the narrative. You just can’t leave the novel if you have started. There is an intrigant who is not the intrigant----read to find out.
If there is just one word that could possibly do justice to this masterful work---its ‘sui generis’. First thing first, this novel is a debutante’s work only in name and not in character. It actually appears that a linguist, an ex-military, an ex-defense and an ex-politician have all gleaned t...

If there is just one word that could possibly do justice to this masterful work---its ‘sui generis’. First thing first, this novel is a debutante’s work only in name and not in character. It actually appears that a linguist, an ex-military, an ex-defense and an ex-politician have all gleaned through their pasts to gather information which make up the contents of this book. The masterful research has shown probity with actual facts. The book is more than a primer on politics, international relations, military, internal and external security, espionage, casus belli and sabre-rattling.
The book is an excellent take on a prospective tinderbox that south-Asia is probably going to become if cooperation between the countries do not take place. The nuclear issue is rightly dealt in this book as a subject of Mexican stand off between two nuclear powers.
There are many other issues dealt with great sense of balance and justice and can hardly be understood as an animadversion on one thing against the other.

Best Thriller I have read. Must Read!

The Red Jihad is truly the best thriller I have read in the past few years. Even with their keen Sherlock Holmes like whudunnit skills, the reader will be left gasping and spell bound by the time they end the text. The novel has a distinct techno-taste that is bound to thrill the readers and titillate their minds. The novel takes us forward to circa 2014 where we see a seemingly unusual, albeit, not an incomprehensible liaison between the Naxals and the Jehadist.

The author has done a through research (which the text will reflect) and used it with panache and chutzpah in this novel. Not to...

1. The research the author did with regards to the material was JUST FABULOUS!! i mean really the terms u used, references to the history, to the events happening around was simply a treat!!

2. The author went did go through india def. program and its developments with a great zeal and also gave the readers a nice insight into it!!
was super impressed by some tech. terms u used with regards to pralaya, and what not and to know that most of it can be a reality tells me that this guy has def. worked his ass on it !!so KUDOS!

3. The way certain scenes are depicted in the book are just FABULOUS.. the emotions the insight of a characters mind the way the character is depicted is a brilliant!

4. The best part IMO is the real life references to certain incidents that fit perfectly in the plot and more so the actual establishments,weapons, regiments and more such gripping and minute details which makes this book a must read!

The only downside I found was this book should have been atleast a 500 page read as the subject is truly brilliant and so much more could have been put forth with regards to the ending..
The author has deliberately left certain gaps for the readers to conclude (which if the space would have permitted would make it even more AWESOME!!)

The kind of effort and research that went to it I am sure he can easily come up with another 500 page book...
AND WE ARE SURELY WAITING FOR THAT ONE NOW...

In short ORDER IT RIGHT NOW!

An article on war, not a Novel. Disappointing.

Well, as someone who has always lived among armymen and in cantonment(s), I know about Army and war, a fair deal of it. The book, is disappointing. It was supposed to be war-thriller military fiction, but it looks to be a lesson being taught in Defense Studies Department of some college.

It is...

Plot: India and Pakistan are at war. All-out, full-blown war. IAF Vs PAF. Indian Army Vs Pakistan Army. RAW Vs ISI. Indian soldiers fighting the Maoists in the Indian Red Corridor.

Below expectation

this book was way below my expectation, I was expecting some real time incidents in this book but it was just an imagination of an author and nothing else. (View complete review)

Very interesting & absorbing

This will surely prove to be a very good read for people loving military fiction and thriller novels. This is a truly action packed novel and very entertaining too. It shows all aspects of military warfare i.e aerial, naval and ground combat. Great work by Sami Ahmad Khan. (View complete review)
