Two Army jawans were killed on Wednesday as Pakistani troops violated the ceasefire in the Keran sector of Line of Control (LoC) in Kashmir, an Army official said. The jawans were killed in the Pakistani firing, the official said while refusing to be identified. Earlier, the same official said that an Indian Army patrol party was ambushed and fired upon by the Pakistani troops, resulting in the killing of two soldiers.

The incident took place two days after seven Amarnath pilgrims were killed in a terrorist attack in Anantnag. The security agencies have launched a massive search to hunt down the Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Toiba terrorist Mohammed Ismail alias Abu Ismail — the alleged mastermind of the Amarnath Yatra terror attack. A “highest alert” has b the en sounded across Jammu and Kashmir in the wake of the killing of seven Amarnath pilgrims by militants.

Proactive operations have been launched, mainly in south Kashmir, to nab Ismail as investigations including communication intercepts have pointed out to his involvement in the attack on Amarnath pilgrims, PTI quoted a senior police official as saying.

Union minister Jitendra Singh contended that the militancy in Kashmir was in its “final phase” with “decisive headway” being made in the last few weeks and months to combat it.

        Mohamed followers kill every day. After seeing pictures in Mosul of what death and destruction Muslims have caused, it is insane to be following mohamed and his Quran.

              Your big dumbo, First of all this has happened in Kupwara not in poonch boeder of Bhimber gali both are a lot far. And Secondly, India being democracy under civil control do not and cannot hide casualties unlike your rogue Army who didn't accept their soldiers bodies in Kargil and even now, when your Parliament head asks for military casualty disclosure. Your Army simply reject that saying enemy would know it.

                You lose 5 - 10 civilians regularly because of Artillery Firing, how come no casualty of your Armed forces is reported since February only 13 reported and that in 3 instances . Surprising, when everybody knows except Poonch and Macchil, keran(Kupwara), and India loses soldiers in LOC firings only at these two places in last one year, everywhere India is in dominating positions at LOC with better defense infrastructure. This is even accepted by your Generals like Lt Gen Awan on live PAK TV of Dunya news. Then, how come Pak army is not telling its public about its military casualty, which they are suffering heavily. This can simply be inferred from their decision of not giving casaualty report to their own parliament. SO, ROGUE TERRORIST ARMY FOOLING ITS ILLITAERATE POPULATION.

                Nobody joins Army at least as a mere soldier to be martyred. Coming from an economically disadvantaged family, his first and foremost wish is to give sustainance to his family. The vendetta politics of the present government is responsible for death of such poor people. How many RSS or BJP people or their family members have become martyr? It's only poor people who are dying.

                  and they keep on dying unless India decides to resolve this issue by negotiating with Pakistan, India tried keeping Kashmir by force for last 70 years but it didn't work, we have to realize that we cannot keep millions of people with us without their will.

                    I agree that we should move all 200 million Muslims back to Pakistan as we are holding them without their will. All Muslims in India are Pakistani and their forefathers demanded their own land and we gave them but they stayed here illegally and multiplied like pigs. Time has come to open Atari border and move all of them full the trains and move them. SRK and Aamir Khan can fly instead of going by road or rail.

                    First of all, you people should get this into mind that nobody joins Army for monetary benefit. Most Soldiers in Army are from Martial communities who are economically not bad like Hindu Rajputs, Hindu Jats, Hindu Gurkhas and Sikhs. And they have enough land to sustain themselves. The problem with you muslim supporter pesudo sickulars you cry for reservation for some communities who literally contribute zero in Armed Forces. Armed Forces is dominated by people from General category like Rajputs , Jats ,and Sikhs.

                      7 die there, 5 die here, we loosing people and forces every day. Clearly our Kashmir policy isn't working, Modi cannot do anything about it, we are just paying price by putting more and more security forces lives at risk. How many more sons and brothers and fathers need to die before we change our course of action? Our Kashmir policy of "No Negotiations" hasn't worked for past 70 years and will not work in next 70 years, just yesterday stats came out that by now we have lost more soldiers in Kashmir than all of our wars put together, shocking? read yesterday's newspaper. We citizens should put pressure on Modi to change the course or resign if he can't forge a pragmatic Kashmir policy. Instead of attending birthday and weddings in Pakistan he should have gone their to resolve Kashmir issue and save lives of our soldiers.

                        How many child rapists are all Christians? All of them. All children who are raped in churches are by Christian padre and missionaries who pretend tondpread the gospel of Jesus but in reality they are spreading the virtue of what's Virgin Mary went through when she was raped by Greek soldiers. Now they are continuing the same and raping children in Christian churches and missionary schools. Please identify your padre who raped you and report to police. We needn't to have a database of children all raped and kiIIed by Christian padre just like all over the world.
