Don’t venture near BB cant on Monday, Army tells people
Srinagar: The army has advised people not to heed to JRL’s call asking them not to venture near the BB cant on Monday.
In a statement issued here, an army spokesperson said Indian Army is always with the people of Kashmir and would foil all such “evil attempts of militant-Separatist-Pakistan nexus to pit the civilian population against the Security Forces.”
“The public is once again advised not to pay heed to this misleading call by JRL,” the spokesperson said.
He said the Indian army along with all the security agencies and the civil administration is “fighting militancy and Proxy War, sponsored by Pakistan and its proxies in Kashmir.”
“The objective of the Security Forces (SFs) is to bring peace and normalcy in the Valley with the support of Awaam,” he said.
On civilian killings, the army spokesperson said the security forces make every attempt to avoid any loss of civilian lives in “cross-fire and minimise collateral damage to property.”
“Loss of any civilian life is always painful for the Security Forces. However, the vested interests are continuously at work to instigate and mobilise gullible youths to encounter sites,” he said.
The call given by JRL for march to Badami Bagh Cantonment is another such attempt, he said, adding the Indian army strongly condemns this call by “Pak Proxies and advises people not to fall prey to such designs of anti-national forces.”
The Joint Resistance Leadership (JRL) said on Saturday that “it would be far better for India” to “finish Kashmiris off once and for all” as “the Government of India (GoI) is only interested in our territory and forcibly holding it while systematically eliminating the people”.
