Unrest in Kashmir is Pakistan sponsored: Rajnath Singh
"I have no hesitation in saying that whatever is happening in Kashmir is sponsored by Pakistan," Rajnath Singh said in the Parliament.
He said: "Pakistan is behind several incidents leading to unrest."
Singh said 400 ambulances have been deployed in the violence hit state.
"100 ambulances destroyed by stone-pelting," the Minister said.
He said it hurts to see stones in the hands of young people.
Singh said: " Security forces were directed to exercise as much restraint as they can in the Valley."
"No power can snatch away Kashmir Valley from us," Singh said.
Modi said an all-party meeting will be held on Kashmir issue on Aug 12 which will be attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Kashmir has been on a boil for about a month after Hizbul terrorist Burhan Wani's encounter death which triggered protests and violence. About 50 people have so far died in clashes with security forces while a large part of the valley has been under prohibitory orders for more than three weeks.
