On Sunday morning, four armed Kashmiri Mujahideen stormed an army base near Uri town of Indian Occupied Kashmir Valley killing 17 soldiers and wounding 23, nine of them critically.
The Kashmiri Mujahideen entered India’s occupied territory by sneaking behind the Pakistan soldiers patrolling the Pakistan side of the so-called Line of Control (LoC), separating Pakistan’s autonomous state of Kashmir and India’s annexed part of Jammu and Kashmir Valley.
Mujahideen threw grenades, opened fire and set ablaze the barracks and temporary shelters. There was utter chaos inside the military base where 10 Dogra (Nepali) Regiment was in the process of moving out, making space for 6 Bihar Regiment. Of the 17 soldiers killed, 15 were from 6th battalion of the Bihar Regiment and two from 10 Dogra Regiment.
The Indian army air-dropped special force to fight the four Mujahideen who were martyred during the one-hour operation.
As expected, India’s Muslim-hating prime minister Narendra Modi blamed neighboring Pakistan for the attack.
India’s home minister Rajnath Singh, another Hindutva fascist, launched a vitriolic assault on Islamabad on Twitter. “Pakistan is a terrorist state and it should be identified as such. The attackers were highly trained, heavily armed and specially equipped,” he posted.
Rajnath needs to study India’s history from some objective source to learn that it’s India which is occupying former Muslim-rule princely states of Hyderabad, Awadh, Junagarh, Pataudi, Jafarabad, and Bhopal in addition Muslim-majority (80%) Jammu and Kashmir Valley. Furthermore, it was India which invaded former eastern-wing of Pakistan in 1971 to establish pro-India Bangladesh.
Sunday’s attack was one of the bloodiest on Indian soldiers since an uprising against Indian rule erupted in 1989.
Pakistan and India have fought two bloody wars (1947 and 1965) over the disputed Kashmir Valley. In both cases it was India which begged the UNSC to intervene and stop the war. Later, in 1999, the Kargil War was fought between India and Pakistan. By this time both countries had become nuclear power. The US applied its weight on Islamabad to stop the war without achieving the desired results.
India’s colonial design is obvious from its official map of Jammu and Kashmir Valley which not only includes the occupied Jammu and Kashmir (60%) but also Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan’s autonomous Kashmir, and Chinese Aksai Chin, as part of Indian Territory.
