There are also reports of a massive crackdown on Jamat-e-Islami leaders. Security forces have reportedly carried out raids and arrested dozens of Jamat-e-Islami leaders from Srinagar and around.

After the Pulwama attack of February 14 that claimed the lives of 40 CRPF soldiers, there have been expectations of a large scale retaliation from the Indian government against Pakistan sponsored terrorists and its army that sponsors them. Reports already inform that the military grade RDX used in the Pulwama blast was supplied by the Pakistan army.

PM Modi had stated earlier that not only India will take all necessary steps to isolate Pakistan internationally, but it has also instructed the security forces to plan and execute a suitable retaliatory action.
