Kashmir Violence: A Jihadi Ploy To Tarnish India’s Security Forces

via Dipin Damodharan published on July 1, 2010

The CRPF (Central Reserve Police Force) authorities and Jawans (soldiers) have been under inconsiderate firing from all corners in India for the violence broke out in Sopore and other parts of Kashmir. The Indian media are competing to highlight the brutalities of CRPF in the Kashmir valley. However, no one is yet ready to dig out the real facts behind the entire violence in Sopore. In the guise of human rights protection movement, strong anti-India feelings are thinning out in the valley. Unfortunately, the Kashmir youth are also being a part of the anti-national movement of Kashmir terrorists. Since June 11, eleven civilians have lost their lives in Kashmir violence.
 
What happened in Kashmir? How the violence broke out? For that, we have to recapitulate a demonstration took place on June 11 in Srinagar. On this day, a group of separatists organized an anti-India demonstration in Srinagar. The separatists were shouting anti-India slogans also. In order to curb the anti-national protest, CRPF and police had to act. Unfortunately, a 17- year old student Tufail Matoo died after hit by a teargas shell by the police.
 
After this, the terrorist outfits had conspired to exploit this tragedy against the security forces deployed in the valley. This resulted in the death of another 20-year-old youth Bilal Ahmed allegedly by the CRPF on last Sunday. Both these killings are unintentional. However, the terror outfits came to action there and practiced their old tactic, the protesters turned the funeral procession of those boys into a big protest against the security forces.
 
The situation had worsened and the police enforced curfew in Sopore, Baramulla, Anantnag and 7 police stations areas of Srinagar.11 civilians had lost their lives also.It is evident that the separatists have been using this kind of incidents to regain lost space in Kashmir and to vilify the image of the security forces there. Unfortunately, the separatists are using the youth of Kashmir as a tool against India. Here nobody noticed or condemned the anti-India actions in this violence.
 
It is evident that anti-national elements were behind the violence especially Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jamaat-ud Dawa. Lashkar has been very active in Sopore. In addition, two Lashkar terrorists also killed in an encounter with security forces on June 25, 2010 in Sopore.
 
After reviewing the situation in Kashmir, P Chidambaram, Home minister, India, also back this view. He said that, anti-India forces are behind the violence and those anti-national elements have tough links with the Lashkar-e-Taiba.

This violence is a clear ploy to demoralize the security forces in the Kashmir valley and forced the government to withdraw security forces from there. Every body, from human rights activists to the fourth estate of democracy has been crying to take actions against the killing of innocent civilians by the CRPF. Conversely, they should answer this question. When a mob staging demonstration against the integrity of the nation by shouting anti-India slogans, when they are pelting stones against security forces to instigate them, How would the security force face them? Can any security force in the world consider them as ‘innocent civilians’?
 
In addition, we have to notice the timeline of current violence also. After a long period, tourism in Kashmir was in a path to regain its ancient pride before some weeks. The number of tourists to visit the valley had increased day by day and the valley back to normal life. A peaceful Kashmir is insufferable to Kashmir terrorists; they want to see braking headlines in the media, Kashmir on boil, CRPF brutality in Kashmir going on…so that they can tarnish the image of India and justify their demand for a separate Kashmir or Pakistan Kashmir. Therefore, the media have to think why they blame security forces who are guarding the nation without considering their personal deeds.
