Centre announces ceasefire in J&K during Ramzan

Protests against Kathua and Unnao rape

Omar said if the militants did not respond in kind to the Centre's unilateral halt on operations during the month of Ramzan, they will be exposed as enemies of the people.

Army sources claim that at present, the intensity of operations is keeping the terrorists on the run, and almost 65 of them killed in the first four months.

The Union Cabinet headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi had last month approved an ordinance allowing courts to award death penalty to those convicted of raping girls under 12 years. Security forces to reserve the right to retaliate if attacked or if essential to protect the lives of innocent people.

The Centre on Wednesday pulled off a surprise by accepting Chief Minister Mebhooba Mufti's proposal to suspend anti-terror operations in J&K, saying the decision has been taken to help "peace-loving Muslims observe Ramzan in a peaceful environment".

Er Rasheed added that dozens of videos circulating in social media are ample proof to conclude that the black sheep in Jammu and Kashmir Police have brought a bad name to the entire police force, wh+-ich otherwise has a good number of God-fearing and pro-Kashmir elements in it.

Top officials said peripheral security to the Prime Minister's visit was being provided by the Army.

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh said, "It is important that all peace loving people should come together to isolate the terrorists and motivate those who have been misguided to return to the path of peace". It also gave an opportunity for the state government to blame the Centre for the unrest and alienation of youth. Any attempt to increase attacks by Pakistan-trained militants will be forcibly retaliated and sources said the counter-infiltration grid shall remain active and will foil any attempt by terrorists to sneak across the LoC and global border.

He said, "it is obvious that the chief Minister has compromised everything for the chair and left people at the mercy of the men in uniform". However, 260 civilians died and over 500 others were injured in the same period of NICO.

Security forces estimate that about 48 local boys have joined terrorist groups since January 2018. In fact, soon after the announcement of suspension of offensive operations was made, Lashkar-e-Taiba outright rejected the government's offer and terrorists attacked security forces at three different places in Kashmir.
