Q1: Write a report writing for stone-pelting incidents in Jammu & Kashmir

The Correspondent

Sunday Issue Special

Srinagar, July 12th, 2022

Kashmir valley is facing the problem of terrorism for a long time and people living there and security forces are bearing the brunt of the terrorism. 

The problem of terrorism started with the independence of India and the making of Pakistan as a separate country. Due to the majority of the Muslim population, Pakistan wanted Kashmir to be a part of Pakistan, for that, both countries fought wars as well but with no result. In recent times security forces in Kashmir are facing a unique kind of challenge of stone-pelting. Local in the valley are pelting stones on Security forces.

The problem got intensified when in July, security forces killed a young terrorist commander in the encounter. Due to external support and internal instigation from some of the separatist groups in the valley, many youths are motivated to be part of a terrorist organisation and the common man and school-going children and even women many times throw stones at security forces. In response security forces fire tear gas shells and pellet bullets due to which thousands got injured. Many security persons also got injured, in extreme cases security forces also fire on the crowd in which some people got killed as well. This is a unique type of challenge faced in Kashmir, however, TVSN Prasad committee in place of Pellet recommended to use PAVA shells which are less lethal. But that is not the main issue, a major challenge is to make peace in the valley.

Stone pelting is emerging as the major challenge in J&K and this is creating law and order problems to hamper the developmental work in the state. The common man and Security forces on the ground are facing the hardship of the ongoing unrest in the state.
