Suggestion to demilitarise Kashmir
Pak ploy to annex Kashmir by proxy
From Our Special Correspondent

The Pakistan proposal put forth by General Musharraf for demilitarisation of Jammu and Kashmir and having ?self-rule? on regional basis, has met with sharp reaction by many pro-India leaders of J&K. They have observed that there is a greater need for demilitarisation in Pakistan itself, more so, in Pak-occupied areas of the state.

According to them, Pakistan has no right to suggest about the deployment of the troops. India having sovereignty over this state, it is her duty to deploy forces for its security and defence wherever it is needed.

They also point out that in Jammu and Kashmir there is an elected government enjoying more powers than any other part of the country.

But on the contrary, in Pakistan the democratic values were always subjugated by the army. The presence of General Musharraf with uniform as head of Pakistan clearly indicates where the need for demilitarisation is bigger than Jammu and Kashmir.

They also point out that in many areas in PoK, particularly in Gilgit and Baltistan like vast areas, the people have yet to see a ballot paper.

Pakistan has no right to suggest about the deployment of the troops. India having sovereignty over J&K, it is her duty to deploy forces for its security and defence wherever it is needed.

Those who have rejected the Pak proposals also included Chief Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad and many others.

These pro-India leaders doubt the sincerity of the Pak rulers. They say that General Musharraf has yet to keep up his words that no territory under Pak control would be allowed for terrorist activities against India. There are reports that still in Pakistan/PoK the infrastructure for cross-border terrorism is intact and the mentors of terror in PAK/PoK are having the official patronage.

The changes of cross-border terrorism are being substantiated by the facts that the infiltration bids are still continuing and the ultras are still getting not only instructions but also support including men, money and weaponry from across the border.

As per official figures, during the year 2005 the incidents of terrorist violence in J&K were recorded at about 3000, almost the same as in the previous year.

During the year 2005, 927 terrorists were killed out of whom 180 were eliminated and one apprehended along the LoC while attempting to infiltrate to this side.

Over 350 killed ultras were from Pakistan/PoK. Most of the killed foreigners were acting as commanders.

The recoveries made from the killed/apprehended ultras and also from their hideouts are of great significance. As many as 1168 assault rifles, mostly of A.K. series, 347 pistols, 27 rocket launchers, 26 machine guns, 7898 different types of hand grenades, 215 improvised explosive devices and a record quantity of 4357 kg of RDX and other explosive material.

In addition to this, many incriminating documents and different types of mobile phones, wireless sets and other most modern communication instruments were recorded and their decoding establishes the links of the ultras across the border in PAK/PoK.

The observers of the state scene in the prevailing situation are of the view that the proposals of Pakistan are nothing but just tricks to hoodwink the global opinion on the issue of terrorism

They are of the view that the peace efforts would be meaningless unless the cross-border terror is stopped and it honestly becomes the ground reality.
