Terror organizations in Pakistan along with the Inter Service Intelligence that is the spy agency of the country are planning terror strikes in different cities of India, reports said citing intelligence sources.

The report by NDTV states that the terrorist organizations are planning attacks on August 5, the day when Article 370 was abrogated from J&K last year that also coincides with the groundbreaking ceremony of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya.

J&K lost its special status on August 5, 2019 and was bifurcated into two union territories, a move that had left Pakistan fuming. Security forces have also been able to eliminate the top cadre of almost all terror organizations in Kashmir in different encounters. Local youths have also been persuaded not to join the terrorist cadre due to which ISI and terror organizations are left frustrated and helpless.

However the recently received intelligence inputs have left the Indian security apparatus on its toes and special arrangements were being made at Ayodhya where Prime Minister Narendra Modi will take part in the groundbreaking ceremony of Ram Mandir.

Inputs also say that terrorists may also try to target the Independence Day function in New Delhi due to which high security arrangements have been made in the capital ahead of August 15.

Inputs name Lashker-e-Taiba (LeT) and Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) as the terror organizations that are planning strikes in India.

Terrorists had also tried to attack the makeshift Ram Mandit ar Ayodhya on July 5, 2005. However all the five terrorists who attacked the temple were killed instantly.

Meanwhile the BJP in J&K has announced that August 5 will be celebrated on first anniversary of revocation of Article 370. On the other hand entire world will be watching the Bhoomi Pujan of Ram Mandir at Ayodhya in which several important personalities of the country are expected to take part.
