Indian Army Chief admits Army cannot achieve goals in Kashmir with guns
Peace, he said, was the only way to improve the situation inKashmir <link> that had been witnessing militancy for about three decades now.
There is hope that the situation inKashmir <link> will improve...it's not gone wrong. There are some youths in Kashmir <link> who have strayed and have been radicalised. They think they can achieve their goal through guns.
But the time is not far when even they will be convinced that neither the forces nor the terrorists will be able to achieve their goal. We have to together find a way for peace and we will be successful in that, Rawat said.
It is wrong to say that situation inKashmir <link> has deteriorated. The atmosphere is vitiated but the situation has not deteriorated, he said.
He noted that 'Unity in Diversity' was the real essence of Kashmiriyat and it is important to inform the youth about it.
To revive that Kashmiriyat, we need to get our act together. It is not difficult. We have to get our act together, sit down together, work together and make sure that we all get united and bring about peace, he added.
