New Delhi, July 31: The number of terrorists getting killed in the Valley is up and the infiltration bids have been foiled several times. There is also a major decrease in the number of violent protests on the streets of Jammu and Kashmir, ever since the Parliament of India abrogated Article 370.
As reports emerged that the death sentence awarded to Kulbhushan Jadhav was to stall peace talks with India, Prime Minister of Pakistan, Nawaz Sharif has told the army chief that the meeting with Sajjan Jindal was part of back-channel talks. Jindal had met with Sharif and this is said to have angered the Pakistan army chief, General Qamar Bajwa.
India has sufficient evidence that it was the Lashkar-e-Tayiba backed by the Pakistan army that carried out the horrific attack on the Indian soldiers in which the bodies of two were mutilated. Pakistan has been denying that it had anything to do with the incident.
India is not ready to believe reports that speak of a rift between the civilian government and the military in Pakistan. India feels that the news was part of Pakistan’s posturing as it has come under heavy pressure from all quarters for allowing terrorists to use its soil.
However, Indian officials do confirm that there has been a rift between the Lashkar-e-Taiba and the military following the surgical strikes that were carried out by India across the Line of Control.
