The Ministry of Home Affairs on Wednesday informed that the Centre has asked security force not to launch operations in the state of Jammu and Kashmir during the month of Ramazan. "Decision taken to help the peace loving Muslims observe Ramzan in a peaceful environment", the home ministry said in a Twitter post. During Ramzan, Indian forces will now not initiate anti-militant actions and will act only in self-defence or to protect innocent persons.

"Government expects everyone to cooperate in this initiative and help the Muslim brothers and sisters to observe Ramzan peacefully and without any difficulties".

Er Rasheed added that dozens of videos circulating in social media are ample proof to conclude that the black sheep in Jammu and Kashmir Police have brought a bad name to the entire police force, wh+-ich otherwise has a good number of God-fearing and pro-Kashmir elements in it.

The prime minister had said only a "handful of separatists" were resorting to different tactics to create problems in the state and asserted that there will be no soft approach towards terrorism.

They also torched the effigy of the BJP for putting the life of the security personnel at risk in the valley and accused the Saffron Party of appeasing Ms Mehbooba Mufti merely to keep the "dirty alliance" intact in the State. Mehbooba also thanked political parties who backed her idea of "cessation of hostilities" during a meeting convened by her recently.

The last time the Union government announced an unilateral ceasefire during the month of Ramzan was in 2000, during the Vajpayee government's tenure.

Omar Abdullah tweeted and said if the militants don't respond to the ceasefire move, they will stand exposed as the true enemies of the people.
