Islamabad, June 23 (KMS): The additional deployment of 40,000 paramilitary forces in the Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) ahead of Amarnath Yatra has raised serious concerns among the residents, who fear that India could carry out a false flag operation like the Pulwama attack.
Amarnath Yatra is being organized by the Modi government from June 30 to August 11 in IIOJK.
Under the directive of India’s Home Minister Amit Shah, an additional 40,000 troops have been deployed in the areas. Also, the authorities have planned to use drone cameras to hover over the pilgrim routes. The move is seen by Kashmiri leadership and the people of IIOJK as a nefarious design by India against the Kashmiri youth struggling against India’s illegal occupation.
The IIOJK residents fear that India may use the Amarnath Yatra as an opportunity for state-sponsored terrorism while pursuing its self-serving agenda in IIOJK and also malign Pakistan ultimately as it did in case of Mumbai attacks of 2008, the Pathankot Air Base attack of 2016, the Uri military base attack of 2016 and 2019’s Pulwama attack.
The prospects of false flag operations are considerably significant since the controversial legislation and other political moves of the Indian government have compelled the Muslim and Sikh minorities, and farmers to come on roads.
Besides, the growing Indian atrocities in occupied Kashmir and the August 2019 revocation have resulted in worldwide criticism against the extremist policies of Narendra Modi government.
Pakistan, from time to time, has been warning the international community of a real threat of India staging false flag operations.
However, the apathy and hypocrisy of other countries by keeping mum over India’s atrocities in IIOJK due to their economic interests is an eye-opener for the global champions of human rights.
