With the Jammu and Kashmir Government led by Mehbooba Mufti drawing sharp criticism in wake of the recent unrest in the Valley, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Ram Madhav on Friday held a meeting with Finance Minister and People’s Democratic Party (PDP) leader Haseeb Drabu to discuss the future strategy.

The meeting assumes significance as the BJP is a coalition partner of the PDP in Jammu and Kashmir. BJP leaders Avinash Rai Khanna and Satpal Sharma were also among those who attended the meeting held at the BJP office here.

Stone pelting incidents have increased manifold in the region since the BJP-PDP Government came to power in 2015.  The issue of Kashmir unrest also featured in the Bharatiya Janata Party’s core group meeting headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi a couple of days ago.

Eight people were killed in clashes during the by-election in Anantnag last week. The violence prompted the Election Commission to postpone voting.

Last week, Army Chief General Bipin Rawat apprised National Security Advisor Ajit Doval of the security situation in Kashmir. Rawat’s meeting with Doval on April 16 came a day after he had separate deliberations with Chief Minister Mufti and Governor N N Vohra over the law and order situation in Kashmir during his visit to the state.

As many as 411 stone-pelting incidents have been reported in the Kashmir Valley from October 2016 to March 2017. Hundreds of civilians and security men have been injured in clashes in the region.

    In the name of kashmir, muslims harboring the fanatic koranic verses are fighting a jihad. Dont forget the fact that "According to the Muslim Canon Law the world is divided into two camps, Dar-ul-Islam (Abode of Islam) and Dar-ul-Harb (abode of war). A country is Dar-Ul-Islam when it is ruled by Muslims. A country is Dar-Ul-Harb when Muslims only reside in it but are not rulers of it" which i quote from Dr B. R Ambedkars " stan Or The Par ion of India". Are the things not clear? It has been a tradition of the muslims harbouring this mentality to make a in the plate in which they eat.

    These are all tactics to divert the attention from the main cause of the unrest in Kashmir. In the name of kashmir, muslims harboring the fanatic koranic verses are fighting a jihad. Dont forget the fact that "According to the Muslim Canon Law the world is divided into two camps, Dar-ul-Islam (Abode of Islam) and Dar-ul-Harb (abode of war). A country is Dar-Ul-Islam when it is ruled by Muslims. A country is Dar-Ul-Harb when Muslims only reside in it but are not rulers of it" which i quote from Dr B. R Ambedkars " stan Or The Par ion of India". Are the things not clear? It has been a tradition of the muslims harbouring this mentality to make a in the plate in which they eat. We need to ensure that muslims abide by out country and its cons ution and not their religion. If not willing then they are free to go where others can tolerate them
