The Pulwama terror attack on 14th February in J&K marks a watershed in the history of India's battle against terrorism sponsored by Pakistan. It has forced our present political dispensation to revisit the Kashmir conundrum to adopt a fresh perspective. While the national security narrative in relation to our policy towards the challenges posed by Pakistan is still in a state of flux, the NDA government knows that it must do more than make statements about it. A slew of measures are being put in place to contain Pakistan's 'Bleed India by a thousand cuts' strategy. But now is the time to tame the bull by the horn. It is time that a task force be intitated at the central level by pooling in security experts to arrive at a workable solution. The appointment of Lt Gen Hooda by the Congress party, is an example. The anger and frustration within common public is palpable across the country. They have stood in solidarity with the fallen soldiers. Public display of their feelings come to the fore by the myriad banners, posters, public assemblies, murmurings on social media and endorsings in various forums. It has surely become a rallying point for a greater support for our 'Faujis'. Let us hope it lasts long enough to effect a change. But let us not fall prey to those reactionary forces that are war-mongering and targeting Kashmiri diaspora across the country. This is a negative trend and is divisive. Any segregation of the Kashmiris will be counter-productive to the 'Idea of India'. Clubbing terrorism with a particular community is an insane idea. Our Armed Forces have led the way on this score earlier and so our politicians and their followers must learn from them to act responsibly in such situations. And while there were politicians at most funerals, sadly Mujahid Khan, a CRPF man who fought militants to death in the Valley, had no politicians at his funeral!
