Early Times Report
Jammu, Apr 19: Senior BJP leader and Member Rajya Sabha Subramanian Swamy, who pitches for separate homeland for the internally-displaced Kashmiri Hindus within Kashmir, Tuesday talked tough and demanded stern action against trouble-makers in Kashmir. He defended the Army and paramilitary forces' role in Kashmir, saying that those "who are inciting the mobs are terrorists and they need to be dealt with a firm hand". In fact, he endorsed the Army Chief Bipin Rawat's line and reiterated that those who hamper the counter-terrorist operations in Kashmir were the over ground workers and they needed to be treated at par with terrorists and dealt with accordingly.
Besides, extending his unqualified support to the Army and paramilitary forces, Swamy suggested that time had come for the Valley's depopulation. The troubled Kashmir Valley should be de-populated and Kashmiris sent to refugee camps in Tamil Nadu to curb protests in the state, he opined.
"Solution to the Kashmir Valley revolt is to depopulate as was done to the Kashmir Valley Hindus. For a few years keep them in refugee camps in Tamil Nadu," Swamy said a day after University and college students acros
Don't allow situation to turn ugly
The JK government has started working on the inputs provided by the intelligence agencies and has asked the Police and other law enforcing agencies to ensure that situation doesn't taken an ugly turn as the tourist season is about to start in the Valley.
the Kashmir Valley clashed with security forces.
On the other hand, Attorney General Mukal Rohatgi, the Government of India's chief legal advisor, also backed Army in human shield video saying the officer did the smart thing and questioning where is "so much noise" over armymen tying a Kashmiri man to the front of a military moving jeep.
"Everyday people are dying. It's a surcharged atmosphere. The Army is dealing with militants, not with protestors, so they will have to be dealt with. Everyone should look at the Army with pride and they are doing a great job…It was one of those spur-of-the-moment decisions. If an Army Major got away without hurting anybody, it's a great job. There was nothing wrong, considering the circumstances. If it has to be done again, it should be done. We are 100 per cent backing the Army and the Major," he, inter-alia, said.
The tough line taken by Subramaniam and Rohatgi suggests that the Government of India may use all available means to control violent protests in the Valley.
Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti did the right thing on Tuesday when she asked the political parties and parents to ensure that youth didn't reach the sites of encounters.
