No firing during Ramadan says Modi-led government; will there be peace?

Ramadan is the time for prayer, fasting and of good deeds, and all the Muslims are following this.

But is it possible to follow this at the borders?

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Wednesday said that the Centre has told security forces to not launch any operations in Jammu and Kashmir during the holy month of Ramzan, however, the forces reserve the right to retaliate if attacked.

In a series of tweets, the Home Minister’s Office (HMO) said:

This order came after the Jammu Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti had appealed to the Center to announce a unilateral ceasefire in Kashmir during the upcoming Amarnath yatra and the holy month of Ramzan.

There has been a mixed reaction in Jammu and Kashmir over the Centre’s decision to halt military operations during Ramzan.

“I wholeheartedly welcome the ceasefire and would like to thank Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and Home Minister, Rajnath Singh for their personal intervention,” Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti tweeted.

Former chief minister Omar Abdullah welcomed the move and warned the militants that they would stand exposed “if they don’t respond in kind.” Lashkar-e-Toiba, however, dubbed it as “nothing but drama”.
