    Obviously there was no such greenlight before, the army wasn't even allowed to conduct cordon and search operations previously.

    And it's not just about the army, see how the NIA is also coming in and starting to cut off the terror funding in the state.

    It is an old development. We had Israeli Equipment earlier, that is all.

    Incorrect. Cordon and Search was always permitted. No one intervened at grass root operations of Army. Only the IA brass hesitated in taking risk as there was no 'top cover'. This was particularly significant under Lt Gen SA Husnain.

    Only difference is the statement of Gen Bipin Rawat, who has said as long as intent is within legal parameters whatever happens, he will stand by his troops.

    This is a marked difference from earlier 'subservience' to political control (read appeasement policies by both Congress and BJP central governments), wherein instances of CO's being sidelined occurred where COs took a hard stand, under political pressure.

    The famous case of when a RR Unit was shifted out from valley proper as one of the protesters threw a brick on the Commanding Officer's arm (fractured his arm) and the assembled troops, being stoned, then took to baton charge and caught hold of the culprit, thrashing him back and blue. This occurred when Omar Abdullah was CM and PDP was in opposition and PDP raised demand for action against CO, and Abdullah gave a call to RM then and got the unit moved out altogether!

    Shame.

    These stupid decision where we try to please the criminals is what has led here. Had we been strong and stood to correctness it would hurt us in short term but helped in long term. Never let a criminal feel that he can get away by attacking.

    Battle of Basantar !

    We bring you the story of the youngest
    recipient of the Param Vir Chakra,
    2nd Lt. Arun Khetarpal.
    During the Battle of Basantar, 21 year old Arun
    single handedly destroyed many Pakistani tanks
    and denied the enemy entry into the Indian soil.
    His act of courage and self sacrifice became
    an inspiration, even for the enemy.
    The Parade Ground at National Defence Academy is named after him.
    ADGPI - Indian Army #The1971Project
    Another Salute to our real heroes.

    This wall radar has been the cause of death of lots of terrorists...
    Burhan Wani Encounter led to Army adopting ‘wall radars’ to catch terrorists hiding in houses Published June 11, 2017 SOURCE: TNN With an aim to detect terrorists who hide behind walls or in houses in Kashmir, the Army has started using “through the wall” radars to catch jihadis during counter-insurgency operations in the Valley. “A few such radar systems have already been imported from the United States and Israel,” a top source in the Army said.

    The radar is being used to help the security forces pinpoint the location of terrorists, who hide behind specially created walls or in underground cavities in houses during combing operations. “Some Army formations have started using these imported radar systems in Kashmir,” the source said. erations despite specific intelligen The need for such hi-tech radars was felt after the security forces and J&K police failed to locate terrorists during combing opce about the presence of jihadis in the area. In circumstances where troops were unable to trace terrorists in densely populated areas despite a credible tip-off, they faced hostile crowds and stone-pelters.

    Last year on July 8, terror outfit Hizbul Mujahideen’s poster boy Burhan Wani was gunned down only after a search party made three rounds of their hideout in a village in south Kashmir’s Anantnag district. Despite a specific intelligence tipoff, the search team, it is learnt, entered the house twice but were unable to find any terrorists, who were hiding in a false ceiling. During the third round of searches, the hiding terrorists came out in the open by firing at the search party. It was only after that the three men, including Wani, were shot dead. The killing later led to unrest in the Valley.

    The microwave radiation from these radar systems can detect the presence of terrorists hiding behind walls or any such concrete barriers.Electronics and Radar Development Establishment (LRDE), the Bengaluru-based laboratory of the Defence Research & Development Organisation (DRDO), has also been working on such hand-held radars. The project started especially after the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks. During the 26/11 strike, commandos were attacked when they were looking for terrorists hiding in rooms of the Taj Mahal hotel.

    The DRDO laboratory has developed two types of portable radars — hand-held and tripod-mounted — under the ‘Divyachakshu’ (divine eye) project to help security forces in such operations. “These DRDO-developed hand-held imaging radars work on microwave radiation and are capable of scanning through walls. A multiple frequency beam from the device scans an area and gets reflected from a person hiding behind walls and this reflected wave is then detected by an analyser of the computing device integrated with the radar. These hand-held radars can produce images from the other side of the barrier up to a distance of 20 metre,” said Ravi Gupta, former director (public interface), DRDO.Tripod-mounted radars have longer range (40 metre) than those of hand-held radars but are slightly difficult to carry. Currently, user trial of these radars is going on,” says Gupta. “Such radars can be used by security forces and police personnel who are involved in low-intensity conflicts,” he says. Once ready for induction, the DRDO radar will cost just 35 lakh whereas the imported ones cost Rs 2 crore each.

    Don't call it a Game Changer. Game Changer is the Jobs creation in the Valley, and restoration of the Gram Panchayats, lack of which the benifits and the money given by the center was not reaching the one needed.

    Better we understand it quick, the result will be more instantaneous.

    LOL, don't think that since Burhan Wani, the declared chief of the Hizabul Muzahideen was the Kashmiri, the Kashmiri youth are waging the war against the India.

    In reality, the Kashmiris terrorists are considered as the third rated by the Pakistani and called them Darpok. It is the Pakistani Punjabi terrorists, who takes the daring suicidal attacks, and Burhan and so called his friends was just the Poster Boy. To understand it, we have to understand that why Pakistan wants to distroy the biggest source of the Kashmiri Income -- its the Tourism.
