Arun Jaitley @arunjaitley on the escalating terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir.

"In the State of J&K, who is threatening the human rights of the citizens? The entire Kashmiri Pandit community has been banished from the State. Initially spared but after the Chittissinghpura Massacre in the year 2000, most of the Sikh community has moved out," Jaitley tweeted.

The BJP government has maintained that a tough stance or as former J-K CM Mehbooba Mufti said, a muscular approach, was necessary to fight terrorism.

The elite National Security Guards, popularly known as 'Black Cats', are likely to be deployed soon in counter-militancy operations in Jammu and Kashmir which was placed under governor's rule on Wednesday, officials said.

Today, Congress leader Saifuddin Soz said that former Pakistani dictator Pervez Musharraf was right when he said Kashmiris prefer independence to joining Pakistan, reported ANI news agency.

"Musharraf said Kashmiris don't want to merge with Pakistan, their first choice is independence. The statement was true then and remains true now also. I say the same, but I know that it is not possible," said Soz to ANI.
