    Until CENTRE could control the situation , it should be said Centre is promoting terrorism in J K. After Modi's arrival there was a peaceful situation in Kashmir and were having a harmony with Pakistan Indian scholars. WHO HAS THE MIND TO THREATEN THE PEACEFUL SITUATION ???? We observe a American-European pull and push in Modi made situations vulgar here.

        It is time for the rulers to take urgent action to prevent any more of such incidents to uniformed guys. Let the people of the state know such acts would not be tolerated at any cost and shoot at site orders are in force from------- give wide publicity and implement them if possible give body cameras to all uniformed people. Also repeal article 370 immediately and allow people to invest work and settle there if need be put that on ballot paper to amend re write the cons ution to suit the present day needs including financial aid to all Indians in education,health linked to two kids norm. Then only we can become "One nation with one law and one tax code" with diversity. Jaihind
