    By and by the security situation in the valley is dipping, using the harsh words,but lacking behind. Several clashes seen in the social media where the picture is deteriorating . but how can, only claims and harsh words are the solution.

    After having intelligence reports, still all this happens . Again, non-alert CRPF personnal are made victims. Something is defenitely wrong with our policemen and security. They are allowing militants to come near them and snatch their weapons. Are security involved with the militants to let this occur ?????? Only strong action from securitymen will control these events, nothing else will work. Police is lack in it's duties. Security is dealing with terrorists, not friends.

    Why are these consistent attacks on our armed forces allowed to occur? The life of every soldier is precious to us. Kashmir Valley is small has just about 6 million people and not all are hostile to India. Shri Modi must wake up and act and bring total peace to the Valley. Let us not blame others but ourselves. Our enemies will do what they can we have the means to stop them yet be cautious. Bring peace and prosperity to this region of India.

    Please do not allow the Police force especially the locals to be intimidated. Select a highly motivated Kashmiri Officer to lead the ops.
