The message is clear. The brutal massacre of over two dozen Hindus at Chapnari village in Doda district on June 19 by Pakistan-backed militants is an unambiguous indication that Islamabad wants to keep the Kashmir issue on the boil and that militant activity has moved out of the Valley to the Jammu region. The killing comes at a time when tempers are on the rise on both sides of the border and many RSS and BJP leaders have been recommending military action against Pakistan to put an end to the proxy war in Jammu and Kashmir. According to home ministry sources, L.K. Advani's "hot pursuit" strategy is likely to be put into a gear now.
