NEW DELHI: On the other side, Home Minister Rajnath Singh accused Pakistan of using the social media to incite youths in Kashmir to storm encounter sites to help holed-up militants, after some members in Lok Sabha raised the issue of death of three civilians in Budgam in firing by security forces.
The minister was responding to Saugata Roy of TMC expressing concern saying the situation in the Kashmir Valley was very grave and seeking his intervention.
“I will appeal to youths not to be misled by Pakistan. Some social media applications like Whatsapp and Facebook are used to gather youths at places of encounters. These groups are based in Pakistan…Security forces are dealing with terrorists exactly the way they should and will continue to do so. I want to say that we will definitely be successful,” Singh said adding that Pakistan-sponsored terrorists are trying to destabilize not only Kashmir but entire India.
