Jaish-e-Muhammad/JeM, responsible for Pulwama fidayeen attack on CRPF convoy (February 14, 2019) and also behind suicide bombing on Indian Army’s 15 Corps headquarters at Srinagar (April 19, 2000) and other bombing attacks of the J&K Assembly (October 2001) and Akshardham temple (September 2002) etc., is a Pakistani terrorist outfit having expertise in suicide bombing. Pakistan, indeed had shown its inclination of not taking any action against JeM as per recent statements from its leadership, thus leaving India no option but to neutralise the menacing outfit in all manners.
The proscribed JeM falsely claims itself as the ‘army of Muhammad’, however the Prophet had no ambition of conquest and was against terrorism/fidayeen, as also stated in the Quran. The recent dastardly attack claiming the life of more than 40 security personnel brought condemnation and demand of avenging it from the Indian public has made the Government duty bound for appropriate retribution against the Pakistan based terrorist perpetrators.
Indian Government is pursuing a three pronged action plan to eliminate the terror infrastructures inside Pakistan. The actions include isolating Pakistan in international forum through diplomatic efforts, actions on the economic front like withdrawal of the ‘Most Favoured Nation’ status as well as stopping the surplus water from the various rivers flowing to Pakistan under the Indus Water Treaty and thirdly an effective strike against terrorist camps in PoK/Pakistan on the lines of ‘surgical strike’ post-Uri bombing incident. Synergising the above plan of action to eliminate the terror outfits would be an important step towards restoration of peace in Kashmir, as well.
