Stark Reminder in Jammu and Kashmir

The political Parties have Accepted Mirwari's Request to be United to Resolve Kashmir's Issue.
  • The gunfight between militants and the security forces in Pampore, near Srinagar is a stark reminder that in Jammu and Kashmir embers can flare up any moment.
  • The gun battle resulted in high casualties — three Army men, two CRPF personnel and a civilian. India cannot afford to keep losing its young men with such dreary frequency.
  • The Centre and all the stakeholders must address the challenge of the growing alienation among Kashmiris.
