This refers to your report Kashmir killings and the normalcy of abnormality: Kashmirs new normal (Kashmir Observer , April 14, 2016). Riots don’t start by themselves. Police are there for handling molestation issues. Surprisingly all stone throwers and youth attacking security personnel are innocent. Day by day violence is getting increased in these areas taking the lives of many innocent ones.
The position of army personnel in Kashmir is very difficult. A series of incidents in recent months, most of them leaving a trail of questions and confounding serious observers of conflicts, is dragging the Kashmir Valley back into chaos. Killings in Kashmir are manifestation that all is not well in Kashmir. What we need is to perk up our intelligence set-up. We also need to win the support of the local population and make them a party to the peace initiative.
