[PRESSTV] India will resume military operations against gangs in disputed Kashmire following the end of a rare 30-day suspension for Ramadan.
Why not just resettle the lot of them? Put them in Tamil Nad.
Indian Home Minister Rajnath Singh said in a post on Twitter that the New Dehli forces were being directed to take all necessary actions to prevent “militants” from launching attacks.
“While the security forces have displayed exemplary restraint during this period, the snuffies have continued with their attacks, on civilians and SFs (security forces), resulting in deaths and injuries,” the minister said. “The security forces are being directed to take all necessary actions as earlier to prevent snuffies from launching attacks and indulging in violence.”
Singh’s office said in a separate statement on Twitter that the Indian government had decided “not to extend the suspension of operations.”
The Indian minister also stated that the suspension had been ordered “in the interests of the peace-loving people” of Kashmire “to provide them a conductive atmosphere to observe Ramadan.”
On Thursday, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi held a cabinet meeting to discuss whether to extend the initiative.
