But on Sunday it was relatively quiet near the de facto border of Kashmir, the source of two of the three wars India and Pakistan have fought since independence from Britain in 1947.

Many villagers used the calm in Pakistani-held Kashmir to leave their homes in Chakoti area along the so-called Line of Control, the demarcation line that divides the troubled Himalayan region on an Indian and a Pakistani sector, and move to safety.

Worldwide and domestic air travel in the region has been widely disrupted, with several airports in Pakistan and India shut, flights rerouted and suspended, amid fears of a major military escalation between the South Asian nations. They chose to retaliate with their own aerial mission on Wednesday.

Also India should stop calling attack at Pulwama, Uri, Pathankot etc (where security forces were attacked and killed) as terrorist attacks rather these should be called acts of war by Pakistan through Pak sponsored militants.

At least 12 civilians have been killed on either side of the frontier since the start of the week.

The resolution also "expressed deep concern" over the alleged human rights violations in Kashmir, the Pakistan Foreign Office claimed, adding that the resolution also reminded the global community of its obligation to ensure implementation of UN Security Council resolutions on the Kashmir dispute.

The Pulwama attack, which is responsible for killing 40 Indian paramilitary forces, is the seed of turmoil between the two countries, as Jaish-e Mohammed, a Pakistan-based terrorist organisation who claimed full responsibility of the suicide terror attack. Pakistan denied using the American-supplied fighter and denied that any of its planes had been shot down.

It said other airports, including one located in the eastern city of Lahore that borders India, will remain closed until March 4. Pakistani officials handed over Varthaman to Indian officials, including from the IAF , at the Attari-Wagah Border late Friday.

India says that only handful of people in Kashmir are alienated then why hundreds of thousands of security forces are training guns on Indian citizens in Kashmir under protection of AFSPA etc.

On Friday, the conflict seemed to be reaching a resolution as Pakistan returned Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman under the orders of Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan.

Prime Minister Khan invited to United Kingdom prime minister for a visit to Pakistan, who reciprocated the invitation. "The country has suffered a lot due to selfish interests earlier and now politics over Rafale", Modi had said at the India Today conclave.

Indian inmates beat the man to death in revenge for the February 14 terrorist attack on Indian forces in Kashmir, according to Pakistan's foreign ministry.

While the Modi government subsequently said J&K is an integral part of India and its matters are strictly internal, Tewari said it was only a face saving exercise. "That high moral ground you had bequeathed to yourselves slipped at the end".

Although no casualty numbers disclosed by Indian officials, Pakistan on its part condemned India's action as rightly indicated by the words of Major General Asif Ghafoor, Pakistan Armed Forces.
