Iqbal, a small-town boy from Lucknow, is lured across the Indian border into Pakistan for training as a jihadi by one of the most dreaded terrorist organizations in the world. Months later, on 29 October 2005, on the eve of Diwali and Eid, a series of bomb blasts unleash death and destruction on the streets of Delhi. The blasts are a continuation off the proxy war being waged by Pakistan's military and intelligence services on India. The magnitude of destruction caused by the bombs sends the normally docile Indian public into a frenzied rage and their demand for justice rocks the Indian Government into action. The time has come to call upon the ultra-secret Force 22 of the Indian Army to avenge the attack... A riveting action thriller that moves from Delhi to the rugged mountains of the LOC in Kashmir, to Lahore, Karachi and Multan, Lashkar is a gripping tale of terror and counter-terror, and the terrible fall out of the games governments play.
