Fomenting trouble at the time of a pandemic: Violations by Pakistan spiked in March

This was the time when there was a sharp increase in the number of coronavirus cases.

For the same period in 2019 and 2018, Pakistan had violated the ceasefire 685 and 627 times respectively. This is a clear indicator that Pakistan is taking advantage of the ongoing crisis and trying to send in its terrorists into India. The ceasefire is only meant to act as a cover for the terrorists seeking to infiltrate.

This has promoted Army Chief, General M M Naravane to say that at a time when we are busy not only helping our own citizens but the rest of the world, Pakistan is exporting terror. This does not augur well, he also said. Our neighbours continue to foment trouble for us at a time when we are fighting the menace of the pandemic, he also said.

Intelligence Bureau officials say that this is a deliberate strategy by Pakistan. They too have a big problem of the coronavirus, but their terror infrastructure remains intact. They have already activated their launchpads along the Line of Control and the violations are only meant to provide cover fire to them, the officer also said.

    The official also said that Pakistan would go to any lengths to continue with their proxy war with India. ISI linked operations are on in full flow not only in Pakistan but in Afghanistan as well. The JeM and the Lashkar-e-Tayiba have lined up nearly 200 of their terrorists along the border and are looking to infiltrate into Jammu and Kashmir, a report by the Intelligence Bureau also said.
