Counter-terrorist campaign by security forces in Kashmir has achieved success with the elimination of over 200 militants in 2018 till the first week of November almost the same in 2017.Security forces led by the Army will be able to contain the violence which is present mainly in the Southern districts of the Valley, Sopore and Bandipore areas in the North with sporadic incidents in Srinagar and other cities.Cordon and Search Operations (CASO) has been the main tactic which has led to the elimination of the terrorists based on intelligence, the flow of which is continuing.However, these have proved counterproductive due to the raising of temper in local areas with a large number of protests that accompany each CASO followed by assembly of mourners for the funeral of killed terrorists that follows.The whole cycle has given a halo of martyrdom and freedom fighting to the miscreants which act as a motivation to other youth in the Valley.What is also alarming is a more substantial number of highly educated youth and thus possibly from more affluent families who are taking to terror.
