New Study Paper: Ceasefire in Jammu & Kashmir; An offer for peace


Justifying the decision of declaring a ceasefire, the Indian Home Minister explained that it is essential to temporarily halt such military tactics since “It is important to isolate the forces that bring a bad name to Islam by resorting to mindless violence and terror”. Nevertheless, the security forces preserve their right to retaliate if attacked or if it is indispensable to the protection of innocent lives. And indeed, shortly after the declaration of ceasefire, on 26 May, terrorist forces tried to infiltrate through the Line of Control (LoC) in the Tangdhar sector, to which the Indian Army responded with fire.
