On the Sunjuwan terror strike in the state on Saturday, he said, "It is the frustrated enemy (Pakistan) which does involve itself in such activities when it is not able to face us on the borders".
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).
On the trend of local youths joining militant groups, he said it is a cause of concern for all of us.
He said identifying the terror leadership and eliminating them continued to be the force's priority as far as tackling terrorism was concerned. His comment came a day after AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi claimed that five out of seven killed in the Sunjuwan military camp attack were Muslims. "But there are people in our country who doubt our loyalties", Mr. Owaisi said.
"Social media is also responsible for increase in terror, it's engaging the youth at a large scale and I think we need to focus on this issue soon".
Anbu, who is the seniormost army officer in the command, said the army was prioritising security of small camps in vulnerable areas and those which need immediate attention.
AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi stirred a controversy on Tuesday when he spoke about the religious affiliations of the Indian soldiers killed in the militant attack. Also, we don't communalise.
"They call Muslims Pakistanis". They treat everyone as Indians.
"If we will address all the three, you will achieve success and if anyone of them is not really paying up then you are not going to succeed as one would like".
"We are working as per our strategy and will continue to do so".
On the impact of an FIR over the killing of three youths in south Kashmirs Shopian district last month in which Major Aditya Kumar was named, he said, "I am heading the Northern Command and I can say it with confidence that the issue of Major Aditya has not dented the morale of my troops, not even a bit, not even an iota".
