New Delhi: The Indian army has killed more than 100 terrorists in the last 6 months. 43 soldiers have been martyred and 16 civilians have been killed in these actions, informed Minister of State for Home, Hansraj Ahir. The Minister of State for Home presented this information in response to a question asked in the Rajya Sabha. This comes at a time, when the United Nations Human Rights Commission has expressed its displeasure to India, while raising the human rights issue in Jammu-Kashmir.
In the last few months, the Indian army has started a strong campaign against the terrorists in Jammu-Kashmir. The campaign is said have been intensified after President’s rule was imposed in this state. Minister of State for Home, Hansraj Ahir submitted detailed information while replying to a question asked in the Rajya Sabha in view of this. In the first six months of this year, there have been 256 incidents of violence in Jammu-Kashmir. The number of such incidents in the last year is 342. Last year, 213 terrorists were killed. In the first six months of this year, the security forces have eliminated more than 100 terrorists, informed Ahir.
While India has undertaken a strong campaign in Jammu-Kashmir, the separatists from the state and their supporters from Pakistan are spewing venomous false propaganda against India at an international level. The United Nations Human Rights Commission had published a report stating that the human rights were being slaughtered in Jammu-Kashmir by India. India has dismissed this report criticising it to be biased. It was revealed that the authors of this report were connected with Pakistan. Thus, the Indian allegation was subsequently proved. However, the Human Rights Commission has expressed displeasure regarding the Indian reaction about the report. It has said that the report was prepared based on the observations made in all parts of Kashmir.
The stand of the Human Rights Commission on this issue has been endorsed by Pakistan.
