Don't communalise martyrs: Army Northern Command chief slams Owaisi

The General went on to say that the participation of the people of Jammu and Kashmir in the funeral prayers of the martyred soldiers was a "testimony for all those who wanted to communalise it".

A day after AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi claimed that five out of seven killed in the Sunjuwan military camp attack were Muslims, the Army has reacted sharply saying that the forces do not differentiate on the basis of religion.

General Officer Commanding-in-Chief, Northern Command, Lt Gen D Anbu also said that over three times more casualties was inflicted on the adversary past year. I never doubt anybody's credentials who are under my Command.

"They call Muslims Pakistanis". Terrorists are not seeing that they are Muslims or Hindus. But there are many such people in the country who still question our integrity", Owaisi "had said.

"(A total of) 185-220 militants in the south and 190-225 militants in the north of Peer Panjal are ready for infiltration, "he said. Yes, the youth joining terrorism is a concern, we need to address this trend.

He added that in 2017, Army focused on to leadership of terrorists and the real concern is the increase of local terrorists taking up the arms, who are mostly in the age group of 20 to 30 years and maximum of them were belonging to poor families.

Journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce, despite all the hardships we still do it, because we believe our perspective matters - because it might well be your perspective, too. "I do not feel that we really need to do tit for tat".

About the situation in Kashmir, Anbu said, "The enemy is frustrated and is trying softer targets".

Four of the six Army men, Mohammad Ashraf Mir, Habibullah Qureshi, Manzoor Ahmed Deva and Mohammad Iqbal Sheikh, killed in the attack were identified as Kashmiris.

He said the social media had been used extensively to spread separatist sentiment among the youth.

He underlined that the Army was well equipped and prepared to foil terrorists' nefarious designs on the borders as well as the hinterland.

A top Indian Army commander Wednesday said troops were unaffected by the Jammu and Kashmir police's FIR against a Major and his unit in connection with the killing of three youth in Shopian district last month.
