Youth in Jammu and Kashmir are being misinformed and misguided by forces inimical to peace, Indian Army Chief General Bipin Rawat said on Saturday.

Security forces have to devise ways to counter this, he said while addressing cadets at the Indian Military Academy.

General Rawat had earlier said use of human shield is not a norm but individual officers are entitled to decide tactics depending on circumstances.

He also said India was ready for “two-and-a-half front war” in a reference to Pakistan, China and internal security threats.

Situation in Kashmir would normalise soon and was not as bad was being made out in the media, he said in interviews to two news agencies.
