It is high time the government and forces take control of the situation in Kashmir, Pakistan which is itself failing is inciting uninitiated kashmir youth who are lured by money and a fake sense of freedom. There is a propaganda by pakistan in every sphere, social media and local campaigns are done under cover. They have never been so desperate after their international isolation and economic downfall. Till the time govt. shows a lenient attitude, the situation will continue to deteriorate.
