The Army in its All Out Operation in Shopian gunned down five terrorists in 12 hour long action. Along with one stone pelter killed and 12 others injured. The stone pelters are ground support to terrorists and Army is dealing them with pellet guns and other means. All the five terrorists belonged in Lashkar-e-Taiba.
At the launching of All Out Operation it was estimated that there were about 3000 terrorists operating in Valley.They were Pakistanis as well as locals.
Earlier the terrorist were causing explosions in Market areas and torching school and offices. But later they charged the strategy and started attacking Army and police directly. On sighting a lone Army or police on petrol duty they in group attack them and tried to snatch the weapons, attacks on Army vehicle and camps.
The All Out Operation is matching to the situation, the Army on getting tip off about the presence of ultras they cordon off the area to liquidate him.
With the operation going on now there are hardly 200 to 300 terrorists remained there and they are being killed. These Ramzan ceasefire by the Army proved to the counter productive as the terrorists continued attacks. Now it has been decided that there would not be any more ceasefire till in all out all the terrorists are wiped out.
The terrorists also attacking the Army men and police staff who are going to visit their homes on leave. Now it has been decided that such persons of armed forces who will go home on leave will be protected by the security forces.
The northern region of Ladakh, mostly populated by Bhudishta people and Hindu dominated Jammu are calm and quite. But even in the Muslim Valley all the Muslims are not against India.
The terrorists are not the real face of the Valley. It is due to terror it appears to be so. Since 1947-48 all the Governments of Shaikh Abdullah, Bakshi Gulam Mohammad, Gulam Nabi Azad etc worked in close collaboration with the Government of India.
The Kashmir Vidhan Sabha is still not dissolved but it appears no party can form the Government. But election will be held there only after the completion of the All Out Operation.
