Modi supports ceasefire to enlarge his image in Kashmir
5/17/2018 10:47:42 PM
Simply to increase acceptability in the Kashmir valley Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, has accepted Mehbooba's demand for suspending operations against militants during the month of Ramzan. Modi has gone against the suggestions of the top functionaries of the Army simply to enlarge his image during his ensuing visit to Kashmir. On an experimental basis the security forces have been asked to alter the counter insurgency operations. And the security forces may launch operations against militants only after receiving specific inputs from the intelligence agencies. These steps are to satisfy the Kashmir centric political parties including the PDP and the National Conference. In fact leaders at the All Party Meeting (APM) had demanded unilateral ceasefire which the Government of India had rejected on the plea that unilateral ceasefire may increase the level of militancy related violence. However, even this announcement on reducing the combat operations have no been favourably reacted by the separatists, militants and stone pelters. The step is part of the fulfillment of the wishes of Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti, who has suggested to the centre to declare unilateral ceasefire. Since Prime Minister, Modi is keen against changing the political arrangement in Jammu and Kashmir he has opted for the suspension of counter insurgency operations simply to satiate the Chief Minister.
The forces in the Kashmir Valley have worked out a fresh strategy to deal with militants and ensure that no inconvenience is caused to the general public in anti-militancy operations during the holy month of Ramadan. In view of the holy month of Ramadan, the anti-militancy operations would remain limited to based on "specific intelligence information" while the routine Cordon and Search Operations (CASOs) would be scaled down. "The anti-militancy operations will be carried out based on intelligence operations. There will be no regular and general CASOs," Accordingly the Army, police and paramilitary Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel have been carrying out instant operations against militants. "These operations are carried out based on specific intelligence inputs while routine CASOs are conducted for areas which have militant domination, when there is a suspicion about militant movement in any general area. CASOs often lead to gunfights between militants and forces. This is to be avoided for the time being. And whenever the security forces get information about the presence of militants in any particular area instructions have gone to the security forces to lay CASOs in a limited area so that protesters do not appear on the scene of encounter which results in promlonged clashes between the protesters and the security forces. And what has baffled the Government and the security forces is the passive silence on the part of separatists and protesters. One had expected silence on the part of the separatists but they should have come out in the open to suggest to protesters to avoid clashing with the security forces. This means that even if the security forces have scaled down the anti-insurgency operations there could be a fillip to the incidents of violence and for that the Kashmir centric politicians are to be blamed.
