Security forces raided more than 150 separatists and stonebirds in Jammu on Friday night. Most of them are associated with Jamaat-e-Islami. Jamaat-e-Islami’s state chief Abdul Hamid Fayaz has also been arrested.
This action has been taken in the wake of the tension prevailing in the valley before the Supreme Court hearing starting on 26th February on 35-A.
However, police told it as a routine procedure and said that some leaders and stone throwers have been detained.

Condemning the people being detained, the Jamaat said that it is a part of the well-intentioned conspiracy to pave the way for further uncertainty in the region.

After the Pulwama terror attack, the Central Government has hastened the exercise to eliminate the Pakistan-dominated mechanism in the valley to make all-round pressure on Pakistan. Such strict actions against the separatists, the Jamaat-e-Islami and the stone-bearers is the result of such operations. These elements are accused of providing help, asylum to the terrorists coming from Pakistan, and motivating the local youth to join terrorism.
The government is no longer in the mood to leave the helpers of Pak terrorists in any way. According to sources, whole Kashmir has been placed on high alert. At the same time, the most unprecedented security arrangements are being done in recent years. To take action against Pakistan and its helpers, India has got the support of nearly all the countries including the United States, Russia, Germany, France, except China.
According to the sources, the situation is in favor of India, but how and when lessons will be taught to Pakistan, and in what way, are being kept completely confidential. At the same time, the security experts believe that this time a bigger action will be taken against surgical strike taken earlier, because this time Pakistan has taken steps to avoid surgical strikes.
Experts believe that India has the full potential to inflict great damage to Pakistan. Our Army, Air Force and Navy are better and stronger than Pakistan. Our airplanes are able to return safely by attacking Pakistan within 15-20 minutes notice.
