Jammu, November 30

A major disorder is waiting to happen  as the  ranks of the militants have swelled across Jammu and Kashmir , and all of them are further emboldened by the fact that nearly 700 others are waiting to cross over to this side of the Line of Control before the snow closes their routes via mountainous passes.

An internal assessment of  the Northern Command  that  guards the LoC and  deals with internal security   in  a vast majority of the state,  barring the international boundary which is with the Western Command , is that there are at least 300 armed militants active in Jammu and Kashmir, and  about 700 others are close to the launching pads .

“ It can be a very serious situation in the days to come,” according to sources privy to the assessment that has been made over the past six months. The contributing factors have been the unrest in Kashmir  which paralysed the  normal life   during summers but   encouraged youth to romanticize  guns and bullets.


On the other hand, Pakistan  exploited the  unrest in the Valley  following  killing  of Hizb-ul-Mujahadeen commander Burhan Wani  in an encounter  as “martyrdom of the young leader of Kashmir,” to enthuse  militant outfits operating from its soil to  launch attacks  in the state.

That’s what they have done so far. The surgical strikes and the  other offensives have proved of no consequence .

The military  assessment  is that  this level of militancy and the motivation can wreak havoc in the state  unless pre-emotive measures are put in place. And doing so is not an easy task because there are so many reasons which they cannot explain  at the moment.
