Stop Blood in Kashmir at All Costs

Press Release

All India Forward Bloc strongly condemns the militant attack on the CRPF convoy in which about forty personnel of CRPF lost their lives and many more have been seriously injured. Debabrata Biswas, General Secretary All India Forward Bloc described this attack near Avantipora as one of the worst and most unfortunate militant attack in Jammu and Kashmir in the recent past. He expressed solidarity with the families of the security personnel who lost their lives in this attack and demanded strongest possible action against those who perpetrated this attack.
He added that Government must take necessary and appropriate steps to ensure the safety of those who live and die for the security of the nation. Such an incident on the Jammu-Srinagar highway is unthinkable and beyond imagination. Some serious security lapses resulted in this militant attack and heavy loss of life. There should be thorough probe into the matter and steps should be taken to ensure that such incidents do not reoccur. The frequent blood bath in Kashmir needs to be stopped at all costs. There is a need for permanent peace there.
The killing of the militants is not the only and permanent solution to this problem. The real solution lies in wiping out the very idea of militancy. Unfortunately the process of elimination of militants is closely followed by the generation of new ranks among the militants. The involvement of local youth in incidents like this is very alarming.
The government must review it's policies ad try to win over the positive thinking youth of Kashmir.
The increase in violence in Kashmir in spite of killing of a large number of militants shows that much more needs to be done to restore peace in Kashmir. The Government must ensure the safety not only of the people but also of the security forces.
The political leaders should not play politics with Kashmir. It is a national issue, hence should be handled accordingly. He assured complete co-operation to the Government of India and to the security forces for the solution of this problem.
