Massive crackdown called for taming LeT, Jem, HM militants in Kashmir
9/19/2018 10:57:24 PM
Of late activists of Lashkar-i-Toiba
and Jaish-e-Mohammad have become active in the Kashmir valley and security forces have launched massive counter insurgency operations in which not less than 12 militants were killed during the last six days. Five militants were killed on Saturday in an encounter with the security forces in Kulgam district of south Kashmir, The gunfight erupted during a cordon and search operation which was jointly launched by J&K Police, 9 Rashtriya Rifles and 18 Battalion of the CRPF at Chowgam, Kulgam, 70 km from here. The search operation turned into an encounter when the militants who were hiding opened fire. The exchange of fire continued for hours that led to killing of the five militants,: The forces also recovered arms and ammunition from the encounter site.
Clashes erupted in many parts of the district when the gunfight was under way. Reports suggest that at least five people were injured in the clashes. While the police said that the identity of the five slain militants is being established, sources said all five were locals and were associated with Hizbul Mujahideen and Lashkar-e-Toiba outfits. Meanwhile, authorities suspended mobile internet services in Kulgam to ensure peace. In the past six days, 12 militants have been killed in the state by the security forces. Activists of Hizbul Mujahideen too seem to be active and their centre of activities is south Kashmir. As far as the militants, belonging to LeT and JeM are concerned they have converted the entire Kashmir valley into a battle field. Whether militants belonging to HM, LeT, or JeM people keep on clashing with the security forces whenever there is an encounter between militants and the security forces.
And whenever slain militants are taken to the burial ground clashes further erupt between the protesters and the security forces. And in some cases many people are injured and raraely some get killed. And separatists call for demilitarization which is, under the given situation, not possible. Because once the security forces, the Army were withdrawn the entire Kashmir would turn into a battle ground. And this is what the separatists want. They want incidents of violence to touch new high so that they could knock the doors o f the UN General Assembly demanding settlement of the Kashmir issue through t alks. Failing which the UN resolutions be implemented which provides for right of self-determination to the people of Jammu and Kashmir. And the current security scenario in Kashmir calls for massive anti-insurgency operations and anti-infiltration grid to be upgraded on the LoC and on the IB.
