In Jammu and Kashmir, even infants are being radicalised; resentment among youth threatens Valley's future
One of the most distressing aspects of the ongoing radicalisation of young people in Kashmir is that the age profile appears to be sliding downwards. This trend has gradually gathered pace during this decade, to the extent that it is now touching even babes in arms.
The situation in Kashmir remained tense but under control with authorities imposing curfew-like restrictions in most parts of the valley on Sunday, fearing that the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Sabzar Bhat would spark trouble in the state.
Kashmir Valley-wide restrictions and curfew was imposed by the authorities for the third consecutive day on Tuesday to prevent a separatist-called march to Tral, the hometown of slain Hizbul Mujahideen chief Sabzar Ahmad Bhat.
