Kashmir unrest 2.0: Kill the separatists, ISI order Lashkar
This is a ploy only to create more unrest in the Valley. The Kashmir Valley has been on the boil since July after the killing of Burhan Wani, the Hizbul Mujahideen commander.
However there was a difference of opinion in the ranks in Pakistan about the extent of the unrest. Some felt that the unrest could have been planned better.
It was in fact Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi, the operational commander of the Lashkar-e-Tayiba who had suggested better planning and making the unrest bloodier. However there were differences within the ranks and the Lashkar-e-Tayiba boss, Hafiz Saeed did not go with the plan approved by Lakhvi.
Now the ISI has stepped in to iron differences between the two top men in the Lashkar-e-Tayiba. The spy agency has decided to go with Lakhvi's plan and execute the killings of a few separatists in the Valley. The ISI feels that if this plan is executed then it would cause immense unrest in the Valley. An unrest of this nature could easily go on for over an year, the ISI also felt while approving the plan.
