The fear psychosis over India-­Pakistan tensions turning into a South Asian nuclear Armageddon is periodically raised in certain quarters around the world. That has so far failed to force the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) to convene a meeting for a det­ailed discussion on the hostility bet­w­een the two neighbours, seen in the light of new developments in Jammu and Kashmir.
