SRINAGAR | JUNE 10: Indian army chief Bipin Rawat on Saturday said that Kashmiri youth were being “brainwashed” through a “disinformation campaign” and stressed on the need for better technology to fight militancy.
“A disinformation campaign is being run in Kashmir where the youth is being brainwashed. They then resort to stone-pelting,” General Rawat said at an Indian Military Academy (IMA) parade in Dehradun.
“We need to think ahead of the insurgents…. Technology is important to fight militancy. If we have modern technology and it is used properly, citizens will not be inconvenienced and we will also be successful,” the Army chief told reporters.
General Rawat’s statement comes two days after he said Pakistan was spreading disinformation among the youth of Kashmir. (PTK)
