Hours after militants attacked two adjoining camps of Army and paramilitary in Jammu and Kashmir, Home Minister Rajnath Singh Monday said security forces were giving a ‘befitting reply’ to such attempts by Pakistan-based terrorist groups.

“Our security forces are giving a befitting reply,” he told reporters here when asked about the attacks on security forces by militants in the state.

 

Singh’s comments came hours after a BSF and adjoining army camps in Baramulla were attacked by heavily armed militants Sunday night.

The first major attack on security forces by terrorists came four days after the Indian Army launched surgical strikes on terror launch pads in Pakistan occupied Kashmir.

Last night’s attack in Baramulla took place exactly a fortnight after terrorists struck at the army brigade headquarters at Uri, 102 kms from Leh, killing 19 soldiers.

The Home Minister is on a two-day visit to Leh and Kargil to interact with a cross-section of people and take their suggestions on resolution of Kashmir issue.

Asked about his trip to Ladakh, Singh said he has come to understand the problems of the region by interacting with a cross section of people.

“Whatever problems the people face here, we will try to resolve them,” he said.

This is the fourth visit of the Home Minister to Jammu and Kashmir ever since the unrest began in the state following the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen militant Burhan Wani on July 8.

Singh had led an all-party delegation to Srinagar and Jammu on September 4-5.

The leaders of various political leaders met over 400 people who came in 50 different delegations representing various sections of society in Srinagar and Jammu.

Earlier, the Home Minister had visited Srinagar on August 24-25 and July 23-24.

        Feku should release his selfie taken during the "surgery". That will win him elections for next 15-20 years, just on the basis of new Jumlas.

And why was that fake account deleted as soon as it was uncovered that it was fake ?? Who deleted it and why bhajnath ??lt;br/gt;Where are the masked Kashmiri men shouting barbadi slogans in JNU ..for which you blamed Kanhaiya and co and sent them to jail..only to be bailed out by the court ??lt;br/gt;Where are they Mr.Bhajnath ?? lt;br/gt;Why your Home secretary was coaching other officers about what to say in the so called 'Missing" ishrat jahan files ??? And the report came out exactly as he tutored them. Why are you trying to mess with that case when Guj govt is not even a party in that case ??? Why did Vanzara call you the god that failed him in that letter from jail ? He said he did everything on your orders ??lt;br/gt;Why did you jail Bhavnagar Mun Commissioner Pradip Sharma ?

                                  These forces are very silent in respect of Hindu terrorms with muslims. Even NIA targeting and terrorising Muslims.

                                    Shri Rajnath Singh is a great Home Minister. A loyal, honest and a loyal person. The Global politics; Let India not move towards opportunism in global politics but act according to her loyal culture and ancient civilization. Today suddenly the Jewish lobby has emerged as (so called) great friends of India. They have entered some segments of the BJP and see Modi as an ideal person for their agenda. Let us stay in good terms with the Jews (Israel needs us more than we them. Besides the foreign policy of Israel is run from Manhattan by the Jewish lobby) and the Arabs. We can play a positive role in bringing peace between Israel and Palestinians in the hi spirit. The Arabs have loved hiji and trusted him. Thus both Israel and Arabs trust us.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Nevertheless, let us not fall prey to the Jewish agenda either. Note in 1974 when India blasted the nuclear bomb Prof. Bhabani Sengupta (controlled by the Prof. Stephen Philip Cohen) wanted the USA to place sanctions on India and even attack India. In return Sengupta’s son received a faculty position in the USA. The same Bhabhani Sengupta was planted as an advisor in the cabinet of the naive Prime Minister Gujral. However, an aler Dr. Subramanium swamy informed Mr. Chandrasekhar about this and the latter raised this issue in the Parliament and Sengupta was dismissed in time before he could do any damage to India. Later Prof. Stephen Philip Cohen picked up the mediocre Amitabh Mattoo and propped him up. The later wrote articles that Indian nuclear tests are duds and our nuclear program a hoax. While the nationalist and brilliant genuine nuclear expert Anil Kakodkar mentioned that India had 200-300KT nuclear devices on missiles! Today due to Jewish backing Mattoo is hailed as a great Indian nationalist!lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Indians always have graude and let no one spoil the solid Indo-Russia terms (the Jewish lobby is attempting this since this favors the Jewish ally China) and India today is the third strongest military power after Russia and USA mainly due to DRDO-USSR-RUSSIA. Good politics requires loyalty and statesmanship and no one has these qualities better than the great Mr. Putin.

                                          Story of surgical attack has not changed behaviour of terrorists. So it is better to check security arrangements of all our military camp. Their safety movement from one camp to other. All military officials must take security of camp. So that our solger life can be saved. Fidain may attack and
