No meaning of 2003 ceasefire agreement

After Indian Surgical strike on terrorists launching pads in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK), humiliated Pakistan have violated 286 violations on borders that resulted in death of over 26 people, including 14 security personnel and scores of injured. This is the matter of concern; Indian government should take up this issue with International community so that International pressure would be made on Pakistan for not violating ceasefire. Already Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar on his visit during the first week of November had directed the army personnel posted along the Line of Control to remain alert and give a befitting response to any “misadventure” from across the border.
Earlier on November 25, 2003, the Director Generals of Military Operations of India and Pakistan agreed to observe a ceasefire along the International Border, Line of Control and Actual Ground Position Line in Jammu and Kashmir. But there is no meaning of agreement between both the nations as Pakistan continue its mishappening on the borders and target our soldiers and civilians.
As per security forces data, there have been 186 ceasefire violations by Pakistani troops along the over 190km International Border (IB) in Jammu frontier, while 104 violations of the 2003 agreement took place along the over 500km Line of Control (LoC).
Pakistan resorted to firing of 120 mortar bombs and from automatic weapons very heavily in which civilians and security personnel were killed and a large number of people including women and children suffered injuries. However, a large population was forced out of their homes, harvesting of paddy crops halted and marriage season was badly affected in the border areas due to heavy shelling and firing.
Around 85 ceasefire violations by Pakistan along the LoC in Jammu region falling under 16 Corps area and 19 ceasefire violations have been recorded along the LoC in Kashmir region falling under 15 Corps area.
The worst-ever Pakistani shelling targeting civil population took place on November 1 this year when eight persons, including two children and four women, were killed and 22 others injured along the IB and the LoC in five sectors of J&K, forcing Indian troops to give befitting reply by destroying 14 Pakistani posts and killing two of their troopers.
Over 26 people, including 12 civilians, were killed and more than 90 suffered injuries in Pakistani shelling and firing along IB and LoC in Jammu.
There have been 583 ceasefire violations in 2014 and 405 in 2015.
In 2014 and 2015, there were 153 and 152 such violations respectively on the LoC managed by the Army. The ceasefire violations on the International Border under the control of Border Security Force in 2014 and 2015 were 430 and 253 respectively.
