On statement of Asadudin Owaisi saying that soldiers martyred in Jammu terror attack were Muslims, the Army Commander said, "in army there is "sarv dharam sthal" and we do not communalise troops".

Jammu: Amid reports indicating that the recent attacks at an Army camp at Sunjuwan in Jammu and a CRPF camp at Karan Nagar in Srinagar were synchronised by Jaish-e-Mohammed and Lashkar-e-Toiba, the Army has warned that more than 300 terrorists are waiting to infiltrate into India from across the Line of Control (LoC). Yes, the youth joining terrorism is a concern, we need to address this trend. "So in this particular past year, 2017, we focused on the leadership of terrorists and you all know that we were able to eliminate a large number of them, and then of course, the terrorists we eliminated", he said, referring to the killing of a record 200-plus militants.
