Militant Recruitment In J&k Almost Doubles In June After End Of Ramzan Ceasefire


The recruitment of local youth by militants has seen a spike in Jammu and Kashmir following the end of a ceasefire during Ramzan.

Data collated by the Jammu and Kashmir Multi-Agency Centre (MAC) shows that as many as 27 youth from the Valley joined militant outfits in June.

Most of the new recruitment was done after Eid, which fell on June 16. The spike in Kashmiri youth enlisting with banned militant organizations coincides with the cessation of the ceasefire on Eid, following which the security forces resumed operations against militants.
