Propaganda artists pose major security risk, IB to Home Ministry
New Delhi, May 5: The utmost priority for the Union Home Ministry would be to ensure that Kashmir remains stable.
There have been a series of incidents that have taken place in Kashmir in the recent months which have spiralled out of control and the Home Ministry would look at ways at monitoring the situation and ensure that the state remains peaceful and stable.
At the meeting that was held in New Delhi, National Security Advisor Ajit Doval and Intelligence Bureau chief, Dineshwar Sharma advised that more emphasis needs to be given to the situation in Kashmir as there is a pattern that has been noticed which aims at disrupting peace.
Beat the propaganda:
Over the past couple of months the Intelligence Bureau has been closely monitoring the situation in Jammu and Kashmir.
The recent incident in which a girl was allegedly assaulted led to large scale violence. While the protestors blamed the army for it, it later turned out to be false.
The IB chief told the Home Minister that these were incidents which were a result of false propaganda against the army.
There are several sensitive areas in the country where such propaganda is being spread in a bid to create unrest. However both the NSA and the IB chief said that the concern area remains Kashmir.
The security forces would work along with the political mechanism in Kashmir and other sensitive places to ensure that violent incidents do not take place. Moreover a drive is being carried out to ensure that propaganda artists are identified and also brought to book.
The IB in particular spoke about a chain reaction that has been going on across the nation thanks to false propaganda spread by a few vested interests.
