The Government of India has decided to call off the ceasefire in Jammu and Kashmir that was declared at the beginning of Ramzan.
Taking to a social networking site Twitter Rajnath Singh wrote: “The Security Forces are being directed to take all necessary actions as earlier to prevent terrorists from launching attacks and indulging in violence and killings.”
“On 17th May 2018, GoI took the decision that Security Forces will not conduct offensive operations in J&K during the holy month of Ramzan. This decision was taken in the interests of the peace-loving people of J&K, in order to provide them a conducive atmosphere to observe Ramzan,” Rajnath wrote.
In another tweet, he wrote: “The Government commends the role of Security Forces for having implemented the decision in letter and spirit in the face of grave provocation, to enable the Muslim brothers and sisters to observe Ramzan in a peaceful manner.”
“This decision has been widely appreciated by the people all over the country, including J&K, and has brought relief to the common citizens,” he wrote.
“It was expected that everyone will cooperate in ensuring the success of this initiative. While the Security Forces have displayed exemplary restraint during this period, the terrorists have continued with their attacks, on civilians and SFs, resulting in deaths and injuries,” he added on Twitter.
“The Government will continue with its endeavour to create an environment free of terror and violence in Jammu and Kashmir.”
“It is important that all sections of peace-loving people come together to isolate the terrorists and motivate those who have been misguided to return to the path of peace,” Home Minister Rajnath Singh wrote.
