Srinagar, Sep 02: The authorities in Jammu and Kashmir finally allowed two former chief ministers, Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti to meet with their relatives. Both were under house arrest following the decision of the Union Government to abrogate Article 370.
New Delhi, June 03: Over 100 terrorists have been gunned down in Jammu and Kashmir by the security forces in 2019 alone.
Officials say that this year, the call to impose NICO of non-initiation of combat operations in the Valley during the Ramzan has been ignored by the Narendra Modi government.
Why are we even running the government in Jammu and Kashmir, BJP leader Subramanian Swamy has asked. He was reacting to the filing of the FIR against Army personnel following the stone pelting incident at Shopian on Saturday.
In a shameful incident, 10 persons attacked two Kashmiris in Bengaluru as they were unable to speak in Kannada. The incident has caught the attention of the Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti who has termed the incident as disturbing.
Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti has received a terror threat. The Intelligence Bureau reported that a threat had been received by Mehbooba Mufti on Wednesday. An analysis of the threat suggests that the same was issued by Zakir Musa who had recently fallen out with the Hizbul Mujahideen. A security review would be undertaken in the wake of this threat being issued.
Exercise maximum restraint was the instruction issued by Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti to all policemen in the state. Has this helped? No it has not. Six policemen were martyred in the most brutal fashion on Friday in Anantnag, J&K. OneIndia spoke to a couple of police personnel in the Valley. Each one had this to say. “How do we exercise restraint, when the terrorists are in such a murderous mood. They have issued open sermons to target us and our CM tells us to exercise restraint.”
The solution to the problem in the Valley lies within it. Looking up to the central government all the time for a solution may not be the answer for the Jammu and Kashmir government. It is the Hurriyat Conference that needs to be tamed before peace returns to the Valley. The HC which is accused of being under the control of Pakistan must be tamed and no one other than the Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir can do it.
In the wake of the threats being faced by students from Jammu and Kashmir in other states, Mehbooba Mufti made an appeal to ensure their safety. “They are like your own children, call them once in a while,” the J&K CM said at the Niti Aayog meeting attended by all CMs.
There is no way that the army and the para-military forces will tolerate stone pelters in Jammu and Kashmir. “Do not expect us to tell them to put up these people who want to disrupt law and order,” this is the message that the Prime Minister Narendra Modi would convey to Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti Sayeed.
The Jammu and Kashmir police have registered a First Information Report against the Army for using a stone pelter as a human shield against protesters. Chief Minister of J&K, Mehbooba Mufti sought a detailed report on the incident from the state police following which an FIR was filed.
