6/19/2019 12:08:12 AM
Early Times Report Jammu, June 18: Many people believe that if a similar incident would have taken place in Jammu region no one would have taken a note of it.

6/19/2019 12:07:59 AM
Early Times Report Jammu, June 18: Leaders of Bharatiya Janata Party in Jammu region have turned a blind eye towards Jammu turning into a police state.

He said, "During the past five years many incidents have taken place in Jammu region where police officers have misused their power and position to settle their personal scores. Many people have been beaten up without any rhyme or reason but BJP l...

In Kashmir, demand in Jammu and Ladakh for empowerment is considered anti-Kashmir
6/19/2019 12:06:39 AM
Early Times Report JAMMU, June 18: Kashmir became part of the Jammu kingdom comprising Jammu province and the vast Ladakh region in March 1846. 173 years have passed but there is hardly anything on which all the three regions speak in one voice. On the contrary, the people of Jammu and Ladakh, barring a few disgruntled elements here and there, consistently oppose the Kashmiri leadership, its ideology and its attitude towards the minorities in the state. They always look towards New Delhi for the redressal of their grievances, social, economic and political. They have no faith whatsoever in the Kashmiri leadership and they always seek a dispensation that is of them, for them and by them o...

It's just an 'anonymous phone call'
Terror attack in Pulwama
6/18/2019 10:43:13 PM
Early Times Report JAMMU, June 18: The recent report that Pakistan's ISI has started sharing warnings on terrorist attacks in J&K has virtually turned out to be a mere hoax. The case in point is the reported warning of a bombing in south Kashmir's Awantipora last week - warning which was attributed to Pakistan's intelligence agency. Reports from New Delhi suggest that there was only an anonymous call to this effect to the Indian High Commission in Islamabad, not a government communication. "There was no ISI warning," a senior official in RAW familiar with the case was quoted as saying. "There was just an anonymous phone call made to the High Commission, which offered no detail on the p...
