On Thursday, demonstrations opposing Pakistan erupted in various areas of Jammu city following the tragic killing of four security personnel by terrorists during a confrontation in the Anantnag district of South Kashmir the day before.
Panun Kashmir and the Eik Sanatam Bharat Dal (ESBD) paid their respects to the fallen personnel and called for a comprehensive operation to target the terrorist network in Jammu and Kashmir.
Wednesday witnessed the loss of a Colonel from the Indian Army’s Rashtriya Rifles, an Army Major, and a Deputy Superintendent of Police (DySP) during a fierce confrontation with LeT terrorists in the Kokernag area of Anantnag district. The officers were identified as Colonel Manpreet Singh and Major Ashish Dhonack from the 19 RR, along with DySP Muhammad Hamayun Muzamil Bhat from the Jammu and Kashmir Police.
Protests were organized by a group of BJP youth workers, led by Jammu and Kashmir unit president Arun Prabhat, who assembled at Pacca Danga, condemning Pakistan’s role in supporting and promoting terrorism in the region.
In a separate demonstration, members of Dogra Front Shiv Sena (DFSS) marched in Jammu, demanding renewed strikes on terrorist infrastructure in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK). They voiced anti-Pakistan slogans and set Pakistani flags on fire. DFSS President Ashok Gupta emphasized that although the overall security situation was stable and there had been a significant reduction in militancy, such attacks could not be tolerated. He called for fresh strikes on terrorist infrastructure in PoJK and expressed hope that both the Central government and the Jammu and Kashmir administration would take necessary measures to prevent future incidents.
The Yuva Rajut Sabha also organized a significant protest rally in Jammu to express their outrage over the killings of security personnel. They chanted slogans against Pakistan and demanded a decisive operation against terrorism.
The recent incident marked the fourth major security event in Jammu and Kashmir this year. Despite the overall security situation being stable, these attacks are considered unacceptable, and there are growing calls for stronger actions against terrorism in the region.
