There is no doubt that militants in Kashmir will take advantage of such incidents to corner the State Government and embarrass Mehbooba Mufti. They will try every means to incite the masses forcing Mehbooba to make certain demands in front of the Central Government in order to instil a sense of confidence amongst the people of her state. She has therefore asked the Centre to remove the army post from Handwara. However Handwara is a sensitive post and any move to remove it would only help the militants and they would force the state government to make many more such demands. The Defence Ministry has likewise indicated its own helplessness to accede to the demands.
