    The fact that kashmiri youth are fighting with Indian Army tells us that the militants are getting arms from somewhere and we know from where. There must be channels through which the arms get through. Can the Indian Army not shut down these channels?

        Pooristan is a tiny pimp state has backers thus a clever policy must be formulated. There are just about 6 million people in Kashmir and many pro-India thus what we need is to place more troops in the Valley, pre-empt moves of terrorists by better intelligence. Also, our media must play a good role. Our Army is a professional one and General Rawat a great general thus the Indian Forces are compassionate yet tough force. Look at the state of affairs in the brutal state China they are cutting the beards of Muslims and massacring Muslims yet the Jewish controlled media protects China. BBC also is bringing up the so-called Kashmir issue while they should be highlighting brutal China.
