    Pakistan not mending ways!

    After having triggered violence and turmoil for about four months in the valley, militants have now turned their face towards region. This has been confirmed by the other day's militants attacked on two Army camps and one BSF camp in which seven soldiers, including two officers of the ranks of Majors, were killed. In the counter operation six militants were killed. That militancy has taken fresh roots in the region of Jammu is indicated by the fact that militants roamed freely and were active in Samba, Ramgarh and Nagrota attacking the victims. Reports said that agencies across the LoC had realized that for the last six months Jammu region presented a picture of peace and political stability and hence these agencies focused on the IB for pushing groups of militants into the region for kicking up violence.
    The rise of militancy has been a gift to the new Pak Army chief, Bajwa. In fact the new Army chief is quite proactive and may be instrumental in raising the level of ingress of militants. Though the security forces have been put on high alert, there was need for upgrading the security grid in and around the important shrines. The Government has directed the security forces to upgrade the security network in and around the famous Vaishno Devi Shrine.

    In addition to this the Army and the paramilitary forces have to be on the offensive and launch operations to eliminate militants who may have carved out new hideouts in the region. In fact the agencies across the border including the Army and the extremists want to derail peace in the region of Jammu so that the Government is unable to carry out any development works.

    Under these circumstances, holding any sort of talks with Pakistan cannot be expected. The meaning and value assigned to peace, it seems, is not understandable and appreciated by our adamant neighbour incurring huge cost on the violent industry.

    Interestingly, former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah too on Thursday said present atmosphere was not conducive for talks.

    He said that that ‘provocative remarks' by rulers after “surgical strikes” was bound to have reactions from Pakistan, resulting in increase in attacks of military establishments. He has added that it was unfortunate that our establishments are being attacked every day.

    He said that dialogue is the only way to resolve all issues, however, said that present atmosphere is not conducive for talks. But the million dollar question is how Pakistan will help to create conducive and peaceful to turn on to talks.
