In a possible bid to counter the what many have panned as a negative and one-sided narrative of the much talked about Bollywood film "Kashmir Files", the Indian Army has released a video on social media underlining how every section of Kashmiri society has suffered the wounds of terrorism and assuring citizens that it is with them in their fight for restoring peace and stability in the union territory. 

The video, tweeted by the Chinar Corps of the Indian Army and titled "Kashmir Fights Back", attempts to show the sufferings of the civilians, irrespective of their faith, and the efforts undertaken by the security forces to end terrorism and reinforce normalcy.

"The decades of terrorism has left us with orphans, widows, wailing mothers and helpless fathers," reads the text.

The video shows the visuals of the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits, rescue operations, and stone-throwing incidents, and highlights how terrorists, through the decades, have misguided the youth of the valley and instigated enmity between different communities. It particularly underlines the importance of maintaining communal harmony.

"They tried to divide our society. They tried to misguide our youth. They tried to turn our peer vaer (land of saints) into a battleground," the video text further reads.

The video also pays tribute to Kashmiris - irrespective of their religion - who were killed by the terrorists, including journalist Shujaat Bukhari, social activist Arjumand Majeed, Makhan Lal Bindroo, sarpanch Ajay Pandita, Supinder Kaur, Wasim Bari, Lt Umer Fayaz, Ayub Pandita, and Pervez Ahmed Dar among others.

It further shows security personnel comforting civilians and children and concludes with a message of fighting terrorism and radicalisation together.

"Kashmir is not alone in this fight. With you in the past. For you in the future. Together we will win this fight. Awaam (community) and Jawan (soldier): hand in hand," the text said.
