        The question is incorrect. Kashmir is integral part of India. Perhaps you meant when violence in Kashmir will stop. The answer is not in near future because the so called struggle is not about Kashmir but a desperate attempt by the jihadis to get a foothold in India. Since the youth of Kashmir have shown propensity for being easily brainwashed and also being in a border state, the echo is heard loud there. Unfortunately our comrades, lallus, mulayams, kejris, karats, brindas, yechuris' ,all scamgress leaders etc., do not want to alienate their vote bank but are ready to make the majority sacrificial goats in this dangerous game. It is as simple as that. Fortunately, by and large majority understood this game plan and should teach a lesson to these rogues during elections

          Armed forces can get some information through investigation will help future actions. They (forces) can kill them, but further information (funding,future terrorist activities,persons involved etc.,) will not be able to get if they (arrested persons) killed.
