On 22 Oct 1947 five thousand Kabaili tribals from Pakistan invaded #Kashmir’s Muzaffarabad, rampaging, looting and killing innocent civilians on their way up to #Baramulla. However their advance was halted at Baramulla thanks to a brave 19 year old Maqbool Sherwani.
Sherwani went around on his bike telling the Kabailis, who had stormed #Baramulla on October 22, 1947, not to advance towards #Srinagar as the #IndianArmy had reached the outskirts of Baramulla. #Kashmir
Three days long 'ZANGAIR SPORTS CARNIVAL' organised under stewardship of #Sopore Rashtriya Rifle Battalion of Kilo force, successfully culminated on 18 Oct at Hathlangoo Sports Ground #NayaKashmir#Kashmir#IndianArmy
#Sopore Town widely acknowledged as an epicenter of #Cricketing & Soccer Culture in North #Kashmir, today on 18 Oct, attained all new heights in the fields of #Athletics & Rural Games with successful completion of 'ZANGAIR SPORTS FESTIVAL' at Hathlangoo Sports Ground.
The Sports event was a mega success witnessing unprecedented participation of more than 1200 local #youths in total 12 disciplines & saw footfall of approximately 1500 spectators rendering the venue Jam packed. #Kashmir#KashmirRejectsTerrorism
To destroy the terror nexus in #Kashmir it is imperative to dismantle the terror funding networks which have become the biggest money-spinning industry in Kashmir that's on Govt radar.
To carry out an attack or continue operating, #terrorists requires resilient financial and material support base – to buy weapons, to train and execute attacks. #Kashmir#terrorism
There has been an increasing clampdown on these establishment to put the conflict entrepreneurs out of business. NIA raids on the money laundering & #terror finance networks heralded the new approach of the government. #Kashmir
The corrupt leaders of #Kashmir are now “concerned” for its development:
Recently, Farooq Abdullah remarked that “economic development in J&K can’t be achieved unless Aug 5 decisions are reversed”.
Well Abdullahs were in power for more than 5 decades, but what did we get?
The way #FarooqAbdullah criticises the Govt, one would have thought that he must have been an ace administrator. Well we all know that he presided over a Govt which will go down in the #history as one of the most inefficient and #corrupt Govt.
Who was Sheikh Abdullah? A teacher from Soura. What did Omar Abdullah inherit from his grandfather?
Today Abdullah family owns a house in London, a house in southern France, a house in New Delhi, and a house in Gurgaon, besides the houses at Gupkar road.
Around 2/3rd of the area's mosque were affected, and around 50% of the protected cultural sites have been damaged or destroyed, including destruction of Ordam Majar(shrine), an ancient site of pilgrimage dating back to 10th century. #mosquee #ChinaStory
Xi is unfairly using early recovery from #COVID19 for external encroachment and internal consolidation. Chinese aggression in all domains will be rebuffed globally, led by powers suffering the most. #ChinaVirus
Xi Jinping''s over ambition and lust for power has been emboldened by mute tolerance in CPC and PRC. His adventurism is leading #China to disaster, unless the Chinese reins its leadership.
Atrocities on #Uighurs by forcing them to eat pork, to read Mao and not their holy book, to discard the veil, to drop their language and speak in Mandarin. #UighurGenocide
By killing political leaders, these Pak stooges wants to create fear & distrust, hampering the development initiatives taken by Govt. Because a peaceful, prosperous #Kashmir is no good for them
Yesterday’s dastardly killing of BDC Chairman Khag #Budgam Bhupinder Singh comes in the wake of multiple such cowardly attacks carried out in the last few months. 8 political workers have been murdered in the last 3 months.
In a major setback to Al-Badr, 02 active Al-Badr #terrorists involved in recruitment of locals & killing of one local boy of Bomai on 06 Jun, were apprehended in a successful CASO operation in Goripura village of Zaingair #Sopore by 22 Rashtriya Rifles, SOG wadoora & CRPF
Azadi is not an option
What does a misguided #Kashmiri mean by “Azaadi”? Is it the right to #equality, right to #freedom, right against exploitation, right to freedom of religion, cultural & educational rights, right to property & right to constitutional remedies
If that is the meaning of “Azaadi” then it is already entrusted to them through the #constitution then who are these people and why are they asking for Azadi?
With 26 top terrorist commanders killed in 7 months, there are less than 200 active #Terrorists in Kashmir with 50 active in North #Kashmir. Terrorists are shifting focus to North Kashmir but they are in for a “Grand Welcome” here by the #IndianArmy.
#Terrorism in North #Kashmir in the past few year has waned off due to the relentless anti-terrorist operations by the #Army coupled with its initiatives to reach out to the people through its numerous goodwill activities,..
..thereby gaining the support & trust of the locals. That is why you’ll find the majority of the terrorists active in North Kashmir are #Pakistan#terrorists, with local recruitment at its lowest.
Security Forces arrested the Al Badr #terrorist, Ishwaq Ahmed Pandith of Bunpura & two OGWs namely Abdul Majeed Dar & Mubashir Ahmad Dar both from Dangerpora #Sopore & recovered 01 Chinese pistol with 02 magazines & 12 rounds, 20 rounds of AK Rifle & 01 Chinese grenade.
Al Badr #terrorists along with these OGWs were involved in executing grenade attack on Warpura Police Station on 30th Aug 2020.
Their interrogation indicates Al Badr was planning recruitment in Warpura & Dangerpura. The arrest has thwarted their recruitment drive in the area.
#IndianArmy over the years has established 43 #Army Goodwill Schools & rendered assistance to number of State Government run schools in remote areas through renovation, construction of additional class rooms..
How Security Forces are changing the narrative in Kashmir post 5 Aug 2019. A #thread
#Kashmir is witnessing a major decline in #terrorists activities post abrogation of #Article370. A major positive shift is the 42% decline in youth joining terror groups this year.
The strategy was multi-pronged: from sustained pin-point operations to dissuading potential recruits from joining #terrorist ranks to social media monitoring to appealing to the "misguided youth" through their mothers.
Another positive aspect has been that no stone-pelting incidents are being reported during anti-#terrorist operations this year. Stone-pelting protests at the encounter sites had emerged as a major problem for security forces in #Kashmir since late 2016.
Based on specific input cordon-and-search-operation was launched early morning at 0300 hours
As team of 29 RR #IndianArmy closed in near the suspected area, hiding #Terrorists opened fire & the contact was established at around 0645hours
Terror tanzeems in Kashmir are short on weaponry, they don't have any arms reserve to give weapons to the new recruits, thus in recent attacks there is a desperation to snatch weapons from forces personnel.
The recent Pantha Chowk incident on 29 Aug, was a shoot and run attempt, the intent of the bike-borne #terrorists were to cause casualty and take away weapons, but they failed miserably with all three terrorists being gunned down.
Another instance was seen in #Handwara attack on #CRPF party, one AK-47 rifle was taken away, however, swift counter ops ensured #terrorists who carried out this attack were killed and weapon snatched away from a CRPF jawan was also recovered.
