19 years ago, on 20 Jan 2002, 4 Lashkar-e-Taiba #terrorists massacred 11 civilians, including eight children & a woman, & injured three others at a small village of Behra in Poonch, Jammu & #Kashmir.
The only fault of those innocent souls was that they refuse to be a part of the cycle of violence, they refused to shelter the four gun wielding LeT #terrorists.
#Kashmir Image
The cold hearted killers did not even hesitate to kill eight innocent children, what kind of Jihad justifies the killing of innocent kids.

The assassinations of #MirwaizFarooq & #AbdulGhaniLone that reveals the ugly face of #Pakistan’s proxy war in #Kashmir. A #Thread

Pakistan is a festered wound in the lives of #Kashmiris that has been eating away the soul of Kashmir for decades now.
Some sane leaders in #Kashmir who saw through the devilish design of #Pakistan & tried to save its people from this snake in the grass were either sidelined or worse killed in cold blood.
This includes the two most influential leaders of Kashmir #MirwaizFarooq & #AbdulGhaniLone.
What happened with them?
At 7:15 p.m. on 13 Feb 1990, #terrorists shot Lassa Kaul, 45, director of the government-run #television station as he stepped from a vehicle in front of his home.
It shook Mirwaiz Farooq, Lassa Kaul was his dear friend.

Unforgettable Random Humanitarian Acts by #IndianArmy for Awam of #Kashmir. #Thread

#IndianArmy is not only known for its valor, gallantry & professionalism but also for its unflinching sacrifice, dedication & love for its countrymen whether in #Kashmir or rest of #India.
On 14 Jan last year during heavy snowfall, an expecting mother Mrs Shamima from Dardpura, required emergency hospitalisation. For 4 hours over 100 Army Jawans of 52 RR & 30 civilians walked with her on stretcher through heavy snow.
The mother was able to reach hospital on time, thanks to the valiant efforts of #IndianArmy & the locals.
Baby was born in hospital, both mother & child were healthy. The family of Shamima & the locals couldn’t thank #IndianArmy enough.
