Republic TV has exclusively accessed two sets of photographs that show Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) being used as a launchpad to propogate terrorism in the Kashmir valley. The photographs serve as undeniable proof of Pakistani-sponsored terrorism in the valley, especially post the abrogation of Article 35A and 370. The camp was organised by the Jamaat-e-Islami-PoK and entails terrorists Lashkar-e-Taiba and Hizbul Mujahideen.
Speaking to Republic TV, Lt. Gen Raj Kadyan (Retd.) has said that Indians should not be surprised over this as it was something that the army already knew. "Having failed diplomatically to get the world to intervene in Kashmir, and then having failed in blackmailing the world by flashing the nuclear card. Pakistan is not expected to sit quietly," added Lt. Gen Kadyan.
The Lt. General said Pakistan couldn’t afford a conventional war and that the only weapon Pakistan had are terrorists. “Them (Pakistan) resorting to terrorism is well known and I am sure intelligence agencies and security forces are well aware of that.”
"There have been reports of additional troops being removed from the Line of Control (LoC), that were down south of Punjab and there are also trying to collect the terrorist from the PoK and trying to infiltrate them," Lt. Gen Kadyan added.
Lt. Gen says we are ready for them, “If there is another major attack like the Pulwama, Pakistan has to be ready to suffer the consequences of a retaliatory strike. India will have no choice and the world opinion will be with India.”
Lt. Gen Kadyan has stated that while the world was trying its hardest to counter-terrorism, Pakistan remained a hotbed for terrorism. “Pakistan is desperate and not seeing reason and will resort to anything,” he added.
He further added that the Pakistani Army was making every attempt to infiltrate with the maximum number of terrorists. He also said that the Pakistani Army supported the housing of terrorists and guided them right up to the LOC.
Two terrorists were apprehended at the LoC on August 21, in the Gulmarg sector. The terrorists have given out the names of their instructors who happened to be from the Pakistan Army.
The Chinar Corps Commander Lieutenant General KJS Dhillon showed the confession video of the two terrorists and said that it was proof of Pakistan's intentions. "They are trying to push terrorists to this side of Line of Control (LoC)."
He said that, "Pakistan is desperate to infiltrate maximum terrorists into the Kashmir valley to disrupt peace in the Valley. On August 21, we apprehended two Pakistani nationals who are associated with the Lashkar-e-Taiba," Dhillon added.
