NEW DELHI: As Jammu and Kashmir witnessed back-to-back three terror attacks in the span of 72 hours, former chief minister and Jammu & Kashmir National Conference (JNKC) president Farooq Abdullah on Wednesday said that the military action will not solve anything and the only option is to hold talks with the neighbours.
“We still have problems with our neighbour. These problems will not be solved by military action…Unless we talk to our neighbours, we cannot solve it,” Abdullah told news agency ANI.
Stating that it’s not a particular-government centric problem, he said, “The terrorists are coming through borders, and they will continue coming. Whichever government will be there tomorrow, will have to face the same thing… We need to come out of these situations… We have a major Yatra coming (Amarnath Yatra). Any small incident that might take place in that will be blown up in the rest of the country. We Kashmiris are not responsible for these things. We have never favoured these things…”
His statement comes as one CRPF jawan was killed and 6 security personnel were injured in two separate encounters in J&K’s Kathua and Doda.
In Kathua, the encounter started Tuesday evening and went on till Wednesday afternoon in which security forces eliminated two terrorists.
Terrorists and security forces also engaged in an exchange of fire in Doda after they attacked a security checkpost in Chattragala area on Tuesday night in which six security personnel were injured.
The encounter had began after terrorists opened fire at a joint checkpost of police and Rashtriya Rifles at an army base in the Chattargala area on the Bhadarwah-Pathankot road in Doda.
Earlier after Reasi terror attack, in which terrorists opened fire at bus carrying pilgrims killing 9 and injuring 33 others, Abdullah had said: “The security (scenario) is good. Terrorism is there. Our border is permeable and there cannot be control everywhere.
The terrorists had opened fire at the bus when it was en route from Shiv Khori temple to Mata Vaishno Devi shrine at Katra near Teryath village in the Poni area. The bus, a 53-seater, veered off the road and plunged into the deep gorge following the gunfire.
