SRINAGAR: Pakistan has revived its strategy of attacking members of Kashmir’s minority community and migrant workers to create a fear psychosis, intelligence agencies say. This serves a two-fold purpose for Pakistan’s ISI: attracting the Kashmiri population towards terrorism and driving out migrant workers and residual minority community members from the valley, a top intelligence officer said. Targeted violence of this nature would also affect Kashmir’s tourism industry. “The law and order incident-free situation after the abrogation of the special status of J&K was alarmed the ISI and they tried various means to create trouble in the valley,” the officer said. The killing of pharmacy owner M L Bindroo in Srinagar’s main market at Huzuri Bagh and a Muslim man at Batamallo on October 2 attracted media attention across the country. “This gave Pakistan the idea of fomenting communal clashes in the region,” the intelligence officer said. Eleven people, including five Muslims, have been killed by terrorists in the last fortnight. The latest attack was on three Bihari labourers at their rented accommodation in Kulgam on Sunday evening. The killing of eight Indian soldiers in an encounter with terrorists is an indication of the Pakistan army’s role from across the LoC in Poonch sector in helping the terrorists sneak into J&K, the intelligence officer added. He said this gunfight between the infiltrators and Indian soldiers has been ongoing for one week.
