Given the “near” perpetual state of war along the line of control in Jammu, government will construct 13,000 soldier bunkers and over 1,400 community bunkers. Soldier bunkers would be 160 square feet and can hold 4 to 8 people while community bunkers would be 800 square feet and can hold 40 people. These would cost nearly Rs. 500 crores. While more might be needed, these would bring much needed relief to soldiers and the citizens of Jammu, who sometimes and suddenly have to endure days and weeks of shelling and damage to life and property.

Our security forces operating in Jammu & Kashmir made a public hit list of high profile terrorists being targeted. Most on the hit list have been eliminated… we can well imagine the well deserved pressure those terrorists would be under once their names appeared on the list. Our security forces have been given freedom and have used much creativity in going after their targets as well as protecting themselves, but still have had many martyrs sadly. This year so far alone, the success rate has been high with more than 150 of the 250+ terrorists in J&K have been eliminated, and the chase is on for the others.
Along with much more aggressive border policing and retaliation against Pakistan, crackdown on the funding to the terror network, the crackdown has been soooooooo intense that many say now must be THE WORST TIME TO BE A TERRORIST OR TERROR NETWORK IN KASHMIR.
Great job and hoping for your continued success to allow India to win this war for good.

The escalation of tension with Pakistan is also hitting Uttar Pradesh where 350 Pakistanis, who entered with valid visas, but have gone missing and not traceable Not surprisingly the state police is in a tizzy and is working with intelligence agencies to trace them.

Recent news reports of “Pain in Kashmir” amongst the youth due to Handwara army firing. But this is not new, as for one or other reason they seem to be constantly in pain, or have a reason to complain – and as they are Kashmiris (or read “spoilt brats”), they seem to be blaming India for their pain. The same is not the case in Jammu or Ladakh or Leh or in other parts of the country, as much needs to be done, there are droughts or earthquakes or floods, and people take action and go about their lives with or without government help. One suggestion is instead of pelting stones, or supporting jihadi elements, fighting the Indian army, or other types of trouble, whey don’t they work to advance themselves and pursue opportunities that become available to those who are ready? Many kashmiris study in the rest of India – they appear happy, well adjusted and are going about their lives as best as possible.

Today is the ten year anniversary of the jihadi terrorist massacre of Hindus in Nadimarg village (near Shopian) of Pulwama district of J&K. On the night of 23 March 2006, 24 Hindus including 11 women and several children were dragged out of their homes, lined up and shot to death using automatic weapons. Sadly (or deliberately ?) no body in our mainstream media, or secular political parties highlighted this gruesome anniversary.

Here they are per news reports: restart dialogue with Pakistan (PDP appears close to both militants and Pakistan) leading to self-rule or limited accession with India and a regime India and Pakistan exercise equal sovereign powers in J&K, no Deputy CM for BJP, all “important” portfolios for the PDP, ban on BJP to speak on any “sensitive issue”, more funds from the Centre, return of NHPC-managed power projects to State Government, vacation of land occupied by the Army for defense purposes (or demilitarization) and dialogue with the Kashmiri separatists, no proportionate representation in state cabinet. PDP has only 27 members while BJP and alliance have 28. Basically, this means PDP cares only about Kashmir and wants Jammu to be continued to be treated badly, as has happened for the past 68 years.

Normally, it is Muslims who seek quota and reservation. For a change, Sikhs who are a minority community in Jammu & Kashmir are demanding minimum representation in the Jammu & Kashmir cabinet which has no sikh member. In addition, the community also demanded the Punjabi language should be taught in schools and teachers be hired.
