Strategy pertains a plan of action designed to achieve a long-term or overall aim. The strategy is about shaping the future and is the human attempt to get to desirable ends with available means. Henceforth, it is a system of finding, formulating and developing a doctrine that will ensure long-term success if followed faithfully.

The strategy is important because the resources available to achieve these goals are usually limited. Strategy generally involves setting goals, determining actions to execute the actions. A strategy describes how the ends (goals) will be achieved by the means(resources). This is generally tasked with determined strategy. It can be intended or can emerge as a pattern of activity as the organization adapts to its environment or competes. It involves activities such as strategic planning and strategic thinking.

In order to be strategic, we have to be vigilant and foresighted to emphasise our future. How our plans and schemes may work smoothly we have to focus on pros and cons that may fetter during its evolution. To tackle this we have to follow:

Resolution-It defines or explains the nature of the challenge. We have to maintain the surveillance of the current affairs and keep ourselves updated regarding the happenings in this very global world. Henceforth, we will ever ready for the master plans and road maps which are being made against us to halt them. We will knock off before they are being blitzed.

Guiding Policy-It means how to deal with the challenge. Our unswerving objective, therefore, must be to prevent the use of these plans so that to secure our mission. Action Plan-To tackle the insurgents, we have to focus on our plans and execute them cautiously and carefully.

Let’s flip the pages of Islamic History. SULLAH AL HUDABIYA was an episode of Strategy. There Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) formulated strategic planning and strategic thinking. Surely to work out, our strategy, we should have extensive knowledge about the environment. Ability to examine this knowledge as an interactive dynamic system. Imagination and logic to choose between specific alternatives. Nevertheless, that seemed one sided defeat and even companions (SAHABAS) of Prophet Muhammad(ﷺ) were stressed regarding that very pact. But Strategic planning and Thinking of Prophet Muhammad(ﷺ) maketh way for FATTAHI MAKKAH. In contrast to this if we analyze ourselves with companions of Prophet Muhammad(ﷺ). They were loaded with Knowledge, men of action and intellectuals of strategy. However, We are with knowledge, practical in action even less but still are. But the third thing which we haven’t is Strategy that is why we are tumbling in every nook and corner of the world.

In order to deal with present political dogma, we should have extensive analysis so that we can predict futurity with satisfactorily that may yield our roadmap as per our aspirations. To achieve this we should consult our scholars, chronicles, experts. And should prescribe our own raw intellectualism until we haven’t the full-fledged ranked possession. Generally, whole Muslim Ummah and Kashmiri people, in particular, are in this crisis. Being Kashmiri I have taken my notice cause in particular. We are in exigency because here half rotten Molavis, some newly young Students who have read 2 to 3 books starts arguing and assertions on big topics without knowing pros and cons, and give their notions which prove catastrophic. Contrastingly, in this array, there are sincere guys whose destination as per plan is supernova but strategically they are aloof. So it is mandatory doesn’t become think tanks and jurists of this Ummah until you are of such status. To leg up, this Ummah doesn’t be at the forefront as adjudicators. Give space for those who are deserving for this.

Current scenario of Muslim Ummah depicts that lack of strategy in every aspect has a lead miserable lives. Middle-East is being played by some unauthentic hardliner group which has devastated and conflagrated it. Muslim Ummah is being footed by these immature brains. Swashes from Middle-East have been accepted in Valley which if not handled properly by intellectuals and scholars may lead to havoc. And here in Kashmir Valley, Men in Uniform (rebels in the terminology of Govt.) even don’t know the agenda of the Global Armed Moments how much they are different from each other in perspective of their ideologies and path. According to one of Controversial rebel Leader of Kashmir valley as per his early Audiotape told that he doesn’t know much about the International armed-moments. Although there is a vast difference in the docket of these Armed-moments. How Bizarre it is, Once he was articulating the alliance by dictation of one armed group called “IS” and after a month he was being promulgated as chief of the International Armed Group called “Al-Qaida” who has no alliance to the former group, rather is antagonistic in many aspects. Without having the extensive knowledge about the problem, we can’t juxtapose things. Also, we don’t doubt the sincerity of this armed leader because he has chosen his Nobel path. But War is played by brains. Make use of intellect because verbally you are cent percent true in your slogan but strategically cent percent wrong.
