Army's appeal to mothers: stone pelters today, terrorists tomorrow

Aug 02, 2019 18:32 IST

In an appeal to mothers in the valley, the Army said that 83% of all youth who become militants start out as stone pelters. The word of caution comes as the army briefed the media about the terror threat looming over the Amarnath yatra. Lieutenant General Dhillon also went on to add another chilling stat - that majority of the youth who turn to terror are eliminated within the first year. "Majority of all youth taking up guns are eliminated within the first year of operation”, he said.
