The valour displayed by Kumaunis of 3 Kumaon Rifles and Kumaon Regiment in battles right from the first World War to those fought in the post-independence era bears testimony to their exemplary contribution in securing the country’s borders

I know why Dr Abdullah has made this statement at this juncture (election season). He may change his mind later.

Street protests in Kashmir have reached a level of professional management. Separatists' reach, organisation and infrastructure are till the tehsil level. This arrangement is at some level even better than that of the security forces.

We have seen the phenomenon of LoC/IB firing too many times in the past. These are the most convenient places which offer Pakistan the scope to keep the J&K issue in the focus of the international community and the powers that matter.

Since the deep state in Pakistan was not willing to seize the hand of friendship extended by the Modi government, the latter has shown that it can display the will to respond in other ways too.

The surgical strikes were necessary and they were meaningless without political ownership. It will create a dilemma for Pakistan and force a rethink on the “threshold strategy” it follows.

Well, people read my name and it helps in the first meeting, but Kashmiris are very analytical.

I also benefit from my understanding of religion as a strategic weapon. And, I greatly benefit from my relationships with many people who I have known from past tenures, both civilians and in the administration.

The incidents at Keran have been dubbed as “Kargil II” by the media and the perceived delay by the Indian Army in pushing back the intrusions led to many screaming headlines. But there is no need to go hyper. This was never Kargil II.

The Keran/Shalabatu episode was a clever ploy to push the maximum number of terrorists into the Valley.

Kargil had strategic importance because of the Leh-Srinagar Highway and the link with Siachen.

India’s Muslim community, the largest minority anywhere in the world, is well integrated and mainstreamed in the national narrative.

Syed Ata Hasnain (Retired Lieutenant General - Indian Army)

There is a silent majority within Islam. In India it is the largest, politically insignificant and socially weak segment. Radicals aim to empower this community through extreme philosophy.

Why should we say it is against whom? It is for deterrence and deterrence is against any threat that may confront the nation.

I think the security situation in the Kashmir Valley is improving and what is happening now in the Kashmir Valley is possibly highlighting the frustration of the terrorists and those who are supporting them
