EFSAS comments on the importance of people oriented policies in J&K


The skepticism of a section of the Indian intelligentsia and the political opposition notwithstanding, the muscular policy of the Indian government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi directed against Pakistan-sponsored terrorism and separatism in Jammu & Kashmir appears to be paying dividends. This policy, unlike in the past, did not restrict itself to hot pursuit of terrorists. The Modi government also targeted separatists such as the leaders of the Hurriyat Conference, who at the behest of Pakistan and using the millions of dollars that the country’s spy agency, the Inter-Services Intelligence, paid to them annually, provoked and promoted violence and terrorism among the youth of the state.
