NEW DELHI -- Security agencies do not mention Hindutva groups in their report to the Centre, but highlight "competitive radicalization" as a reason for growing unrest in Jammu and Kashmir.
The Indian Express reported today that J&K agencies have divided “radicalisation” into three categories: “political” by Hurriyat, a hardcore separatist organisation, “religious” by “socio-religious groups” and “online radicalisation through social media."
The newspaper reported that security agencies in Jammu and Kashmir have outlined various security concerns to the Centre as well as growing feelings of "alienation and anger" against the state government.
The security agencies are reporting a “47 per cent increase in militancy-related incidents, 51 per cent increase in stone-pelting incidents, 65 per cent spurt in infiltration and an increase in fresh recruitments” during the first six months of 2016.
The Indian Express reported that incidents of stone-pelting by civilians have increased during encounters and counter-insurgency operations in the first six months of 2016, and a 100 percent rise in participation of funerals of slain militants.
Citing sources, The Indian Express reported that 65 percent of militants trying to enter Jammu and Kashmir have been successful, this year, compared to 28 percent, last year.
