Former J&K chief minister and National Conference president Omar Abdullah on Wednesday said Pakistan will have to take the initiative and do something for the situation to improve between India and Pakistan. He added that both the central and state governments had failed to provide a peaceful environment to people in J&K.

Reacting to the attacks in Jammu on Tuesday, Abdullah said the government must explain its Pakistan policy to the country in the aftermath of the repeated attacks on forces. “It is also true that terrorists are no more deterred from attacking our armed forces today than they were prior to the ‘surgical strikes’!,” Abdullah tweeted.

    This fellow is not the spokesperson for Kashmiris. His family was ordained by Nehru but they are gone now and irrelevant. First, Kashmir, Srinagar, Anantnag, Awantipur, Baramula, Vaishnodevi etc are all Hindu names from hundreds of years before the advent of Islam. The so-called "kashmiris" who raped, murdered and ethnically cleansed hundreds of thousands of Hindu Pandits from the Valley along with their stani guests have yet to pay for it but pay they must and will. They represent at best 20% of the potion of JandK state, including the areas occupied illegally by stan and 10% of the area. Who are they to talk? Our media should stop giving them any airtime.

      India will sooner or later make a fatal mistake by miscalculating stan's strength and desire to see its territory vacated by India in Kashmir and other places. The world is watching, and one wrong by India and it would come as a shock what the retaliation from stan would look like.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;stan is going to be the future engine of growth for many economies from China, to Russia to the UK and Iran Afghanistan, because of trade routes, tourism, oil and gas pipelines, etc etc, so no need to start anything with Pak, as India wont find any friend.
