BSFIndia is probably the only nation in the world where politics plays a key role to dent the morale of the armed forces. Some vested interests while trying to score a political point tend to forget the contribution and sacrifice made by the armed forces. It’s definitely good to criticise the government when it fails to fulfill the responsibilities and obligations owed to people of the country. But, criticising the government at a time when it was motivating the soldiers to give a befitting reply to the enemy makes no sense.

I recently came across a post on social media, which spread false information and lies. It criticised Prime Minister Narendra Modi and claimed that 59 Indian soldiers were killed by Pakistani Army in the last 130 days. I was shocked to see that many people, including the so-called intellectuals hitting the like button and comment in support of that propaganda. It was not the lone exception. Many such campaigns were launched on social media, taking a dig on Narendra Modi and his government without verifying the facts on ground.

It was Pakistan, which started the firing on border without any provocation. At least nine civilians were killed and scores of people including some jawans were injured as well. The heavy firing, just two hours after India beat Pakistan in Asiad men’s Hockey final, caught the Indian troops by surprise. When Pakistan did not relent and continues the onslaught, they responded strongly, causing heavy casualties on the other side of the border. At least 18 terrorists, 25 Pakistani civilians and many Pakistani Rangers were killed in retaliation. Over 50 Pakistani posts were destroyed. That put Pakistan on back foot and saw a decline in the firing incidents subsequently.

However, some political parties questioned the delay in action in the wake of PM’s election campaigns in Maharashtra and Haryana. Congress scion Rahul Gandhi, who suddenly woke up to lead the electoral campaign in Maharashtra, created a flutter when he said that the Indian PM did not raise the Chinese incursion issue with their President Xi Jinping. It is known to the world that the issue figured in the joint press conference of both leaders and only because of Modi’s strong stand, the Chinese troops withdrew from Ladakh by September 30.

The Congress was right in saying that BJP had politicised such issues in the past. But, the BJP raised the issues because the UPA II Government failed to act and allowed our soldiers to be butchered. But, this is not the case now. Narendra Modi has deployed NSA Ajit Doval, who has already given a free hand to the Indian Army and BSF to retaliate. India also refused to hold any talks or flag meetings with Pakistan, which put much pressure on their Army and political establishment.

If we criticise the government at a time, when Army and BSF are giving a strong reply to Pakistan, that will demoralise them further and bring huge disappoint to the troops. They expect our politicians to rise to the occasion and back them in the hours of crisis and glory both. Forget about politics, India needs to stand by its brave hearts who have vowed not to give an inch to either China or Pakistan and continue to offensive without any fear.

As Pakistan continues unprovoked firing in many sectors in Jammu & Kashmir, the Indian troops are giving a fitting reply to the Pakistani Rangers without any mercy. At least 13 people, including nine civilians and 4 Pakistani Rangers have been killed in the retaliatory firing by the BSF.
Pakistan is getting what it deserves! They tested India’s patience by killing at least seven civilians. But, with Indian troops on a huge offensive, they sought a flag meeting, which was denied by the Indian side. The BSF put the flag meeting on hold and launched a scathing attack on Pakistani forces.
Defence Minister Arun Jaitley held meeting with all three Service chiefs today to review the situation on the LoC. He has reportedly asked the Indian forces to toughen stand and note to show any mercy while dealing with enemy forces.

Tension gripped Srinagar’s Ramban and curfew was imposed in major towns of south and north parts in Jammu and Kashmir a day after four civilians were killed in alleged firing by the Border Security Forces (BSF). The death toll in the firing rose to six, while 25 others have been injured.

Ramban firingFresh protests erupted in Chenab Valley after two more succumbed to their injuries on Friday. The annual Amarnath Yatra has been suspended following the tension in Kashmir. Chief Minister Omar Abdullah condemned the incident. Religious groups and separatists had called for protests against the incident across the Kashmir valley after Friday prayers.

The BSF troops on Thursday allegedly opened fire indiscriminately after a mob attacked their camp in Shaida Gool village of Ramban district, 145 km from Srinagar. According to locals, people were protesting the alleged desecration of a mosque and beating up of an Imam by some BSF personnel.

While the state government has ordered a magisterial enquiry into the incident, union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde has ordered a probe.

The violence erupted during holy Ramadan just three weeks after the locals protested Army’s alleged killing of two youths in Bandipore.
