A day after AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi issued a controversial remark linking Sunjuwan terror attack martyrs with religion, the Army on Wednesday criticised those communalising the supreme sacrifice made by the soldiers.

"We don't communalise martyrs, those making statements don't know the Army well", Lt.

Meanwhile, briefing about the recent terrorist attacks in Jammu and Kashmir, Lt General Anbu said the "enemy" is attacking softer targets as they are failing at the borders.

He said that people taking up arms are in "the age group of 20, 30 and less", and that to arrest the trend, "one major factor we need to do is if you are able to address a terrorist, you eliminate the terrorist, And you ensure the overground workers are also equally targeted".

Meanwhile, Lt Gen Devraj Anbu has issued a fresh warning, saying more than 300 militants are waiting across the Line of Control (LoC) in Pakistan to infiltrate into India.

He also pointed out that militant outfits Hizbul Mujahideen (HM), Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) or Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) work together. According to a leading daily, Owaisi had said, "Those who call Indian Muslims Pakistani should learn something from this". Also, we don't communalise.

Oxfam sex scandal: Watchdog tells Save the Children to search records
Oxfam's senior leaders met with the Charity Commission yesterday and a statement from the regulator is expected later today. International Development Secretary Penny Mordaunt said on Wednesday the aid sector needed a change of culture.

Swamy's rhetorical poser to Owaisi was the latest in a stream of backlash the AIMIM chief has faced for underscoring the fact that five of the six Armymen who laid down their lives in the Sunjuwan attack were Kashmiri Muslims. "Anyone who picks up an arm and is against the state, is a terrorist and we'll deal with them", he said.

Owaisi, the MP from Hyderabad, had yesterday said the so-called "9 PM" nationalists (those who appear in prime time TV debates) question the nationalism of Muslims and Kashmiri Muslims. They are considering us Indians.

He attributed the increase in local youths joining militant ranks to post-Burhan Wani euphoria on social media. It's a reminder to all those who question our integrity and love for the country.

Anbu added that the Sunjuwan attack showed that the enemy was frustrated.

"If we will address all the three, you will achieve success and if anyone of them is not really paying up then you are not going to succeed as one would like".
