Union Home Secretary Rajiv Mehrishi on Wednesday gave credit to the people of Kashmir for what he called a 'turnaround in security situation' in the Valley.
At the same time, he also took objection to the term 'Hindu terror' and giving religious labels to terrorism.
Mehrishi told a TV channel that terror was terror and it did not matter as to what religion it belongs to.
He emphasised that it was unfair to call acts of terrorism as 'Hindu terror, saffron terror or green terror'.
The Home Secretary pointed out that investigations by National Investigation Agency (NIA) go through a court process and the judiciary does not have to accept everything submitted by the agency.
Talking about the situation in Jammu and Kashmir, Mehrishi said that Centre would not interfere if the NIA needed to arrest Hurriyat Conference leaders in Jammu and Kashmir in order to probe terror funding from Pakistan.
On the issue of cross-border trade, he said to News18 that “under and over invoicing of cross-border trade goods" was known to the government and it would be dealt on a case-to-case basis.
However, Mehrishi clarified that there was no proposal to ban cross-border trade between the neighbouring countries.
Regarding about SC order seeking NIA investigation on ‘love jihad’, Mehrishi said that it could not be said as of now whether allurement was being offered for conversion or whether terror was linked to it.
