Jammu and Kashmir: Over 700 people have already been evacuated from a few border hamlets targeted by Pakistani troops.

In an overnight shelling and firing by Pakistani rangers along the Ramgarh, Arnia and RS Pura sectors, two Border Security Force personnel (BSF) among five other people were injured on Friday. Though there has been no official communication from BSF about injuries on its side last night, police sources said that two BSF personnel were injured in Ramgarh sector. Identified as Subash, Vandana and Pushpinder, the civilians were residents of Satowali in R S Pura sector. The Pakistani troops fired 120 mm and 80 mm mortar shells but the loss had not been much as most of the shells fell in agricultural fields or open spaces.

The BSF retaliated effectively and strongly causing heavy damage on Pakistan side, sources said, adding that firing from across the border stopped around 6.15 am. “There are only a few areas which are clearly visible from our side. Damage visible, but extent not known,’’ said a BSF spokesperson here. Also Read: India, Pak DGMOs discuss ceasefire violations in Jammu

Earlier on September 11, a BSF constable and a civilian were killed in an unprovoked and intensified shelling by Pakistani troops  in Nowshera district of Jammu and Kashmir. In view of the uncertainty in situation along the borders in R S Pura, Arnia and Ramgarh sectors, sources said that police and civil administration have advised people not to move out of their houses and keep their lights switched off during the night. The educational institutions in border areas of Arnia have been closed as a precautionary measure.

    पिद्दा सा पाकिस्तान जो आबादी व धन में भारत का सातवां हिस्सा है फिर भी रोज बॉर्डर पर कहीं न कही तोप के गोले फेंकने से बाज नहीं आ रहा। क्या कारण है ? जबकि भारत गृह मंत्री 40 महीनों से मुहतोड़ जवाबी कार्यवाही की बात कर रहें है। अजब पहेली कौन समझा सकता है?

      These converts are all fakes, they hav left their religion and now following a cult of camel herders of arab, (the reason behind their all sufferings) and their names also fake, NAME KHAN is of buddhist origin, used by CHANGEZ KHAN, a buddhist of shraman traditions, and MUSLIMS WERE SLAVES under him, CHANGEZ KHAN BANNED ISLAMIC PRACTISES, he used to KILL MUSLIMS becaz they were troublemakers, so muslims out of fear started using the name khan, so that they are not killed and treated like slaves. They will tell the CHANGEZ KHAN army that they are not muslims but khans to escape from the army. They are IMPOSTERS of the original Buddhist khans, same is KHATUN, muslims females would use KHATUN to save themselves from being killed by CHANGEZ KHAN ARMY. Even now these slaves use word khan to hide the fact that these were slaves!! Muslims can hav a much better lives if they leave islamic and return to their original religion!

        Those whose intelligence has been stolen by material desires, they worship demigods" (Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 7, Verse 20)"God is one and only, not a second" (Chandogya Upanishad, Chapter 6, Section 2, Verse 1)"Of him (God), there is no parents, no Lord" (Svetasvatara Upanishad, Chapter 6, Verse 9) !! vedas says "na astha pratima wasthi" that of God there is no image or Idol or any form?If you read true old testaments in Christianity also there is written no idol or image worshiping is permitted.. Our politicians are using innocent people to follow hatred based religion ideology which is no where in holy Scriptures eg: - temples, idols, ram jaanmabhomi, sandhya, Gurus, Babas, etc. This is nothing but instigating poison in the innocent people's mind.Start reading and following your own Scriptures at least follow their is only one God with no Idol before death arrives.Only true religion is ISLAM ,understand islam ,not via fake books,or post.Read Quran before commenting.8464545hsfs

            भारत की आबादी का 7 वा हिस्सा पाकिस्तान की इतनी जुर्रत पड़ रही है कि खुलेआम हमारी BSF POST पर लगातार गोले फ़ेंक रहा है। गृह मंत्रीजी 40 माह से मुँह तोड़ जवाब की या गोलियां न गिनने की बात दोहरा रहे है। नतीजा भारतवासी देख रहे है।
