Rajnath Assures Peace In Kashmir Soon
New Delhi: As Kashmir Valley is reeling under chaos, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Saturday said that cross-border terrorism would be brought to an end soon.
Addressing the media on Saturday, he said that the government had full faith in the security forces to accomplish the task. He asserted that the situation in Kashmir would be brought under control soon.
Despite India being a home to a sizeable Muslim population, the Islamic State could not recruit people from the country, he said. “Our forces have been able to arrest a few ISIS sympathisers,” he added.
He further said that security forces were working towards eliminating Pakistan-sponsored terror totally from Kashmir. “I assure you that we will uproot Pakistan-sponsored terror from Jammu and Kashmir and establish peace there,” said Singh.
The Union Minister also claimed that after surgical strikes, there had been a decrease of 45 percent in infiltration from Pakistan.
Pointing out the need for an integrated solution to the Kashmir issue, Rajnath said, “We want good relations, but cannot clap with one hand.” He was indicating ties with Pakistan.
