Former Jammu and Kashmir CM and PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti has once again batted for talks between India and Pakistan. Mufti took to Twitter on Monday and raked up Kashmir issue, saying that it is a political problem that needs political redressal. In the redressal, the PDP chief has called for the involvement of all 'stakeholders' including Pakistan.
Further targeting newly appointed Home Minister Amit Shah in her tweet, Mehbooba Mufti has added that "expecting a quick fix through brute force by newly-appointed HM is ridiculously naive". Read here:
This has come in the light of the first security review meeting held by Union Home Minister Amit Shah taking stock of country's internal security situation. During the meeting, Amit Shah was given a detailed briefing on the prevailing security situation in the country by SA Ajit Doval, Home Secretary Rajiv Gauba, Intelligence Bureau chief Rajiv Jain, besides others.
Apart from the hinterland, the home minister was also apprised on the situation in Jammu and Kashmir, particularly in border areas. While the secretary of the Research and Analysis Wing (R&AW), who also attends this meeting, gives an overview on India's neighbourhood, the director of the Intelligence Bureau briefs on internal intelligence inputs, the official said.
Differences between India and Pakistan went sour in the aftermath of the henious Pulwama terror attack which was perpetrated by Jaish-e-Mohammad suicide bomber. In a massive response, India carried out the Balakot airstrike in Pakistan, which destroyed the biggest terror camp of JeM in the neighbouring country. While India provided proofs of the airstrike, Pakistan remained in refusal.
