The Centre has announced the termination of Ramzan ceasefire on Sunday , a day after the holy month of fasting ended with Eid-ul-Fitr on Saturday .
Home Minister Rajnath Singh tweeted on Sunday morning “ The security forces are being directed to take all necessary actions as earlier to prevent terrorists from launching attacks and indulging in violence and killings”
As such the security forces will be able to resume their operations against the militants the way they were doing it prior to the start of the holy month of Ramzan , when the security forces were asked to suspend their operations to enable the pace loving Muslims to observe Ramzan in a peaceful environment .
The decision to go in for the resumption of the operations , according to home minister , comes in the wake of the fact that while the security forces maintained restraint , the terrorists continued with the violent activities.
The Centre took cognizance of the violent incidents launched by militants to sabotage the ceasefire by attacking the army posts , policemen and killing of a veteran journalist Shujaat Bukhari in the broad day light in the heart of Srinagar on Thursday and on the same day a solder was abducted and killed in the most brutal fashion .
The Government of India decides not to extend the suspension of operations in J&K announced in the beginning of Ramazan.

This decision has been widely appreciated by the people all over the country, including J&K, and has brought relief to the common citizens..
The Home Minister said that “ It is important that all sections of peace loving people come together to isolate the terrorists and motivate those who have been misguided to return to the path of peace.”
