Sinking Valley

The situation in the Kashmir Valley is deteriorating by the minute. The near unanimous call by top defence officials dealing with the Kashmir situation for urgent political intervention requires the Centre to rethink its unwavering status quoism on Kashmir. Such a call reflects that the situation is slipping out of the hands of the government.

Further procrastination may only lead to a situation of antisocial elements gaining the upper hand both within and outside the State. The Army’s unrelenting and tireless efforts need to be complemented and supported by efforts from the top civilian administration. The recent spectacle of a ‘gun salute’ for a militant displays the gravity of the situation in the Valley.
