I’ve crossed the border to Pakistan on foot. I’ve taken you guys to the Bangladesh border fence. Now today, we’re gonna see how close to the Line of Control here in Jammu & Kashmir we can get. And it’s known for drugs, guns, fake currency, and terrorist smuggling… crossing that Line of Control. And on both sides of the LoC, villagers have been shelled. So I’m gonna take you to a village as well and show you what’s been happening there. Let’s go. We’re on our way to Suchetgarh now. And this very road, it leads to Pakistan. But there’s an official border stopping people from getting through. So we’ll hit that border and then we’ll take a left and we’ll find the LoC; the border fence. We’re nearly at the border and we’ve just started to see these bunkers popping up. You guys can see all these bunkers and they just run along this big ridgeline. And this would have been used in a war against Pakistan, at some point. This would have been, you know, a defensive line which the Indian army built. Don’t know what year that was. Don’t know which war that was but it’s pretty clear because these bunkers go so far. Okay, let’s go in and let’s see what’s here, eh? Let’s go. These are so cool. It’s like a whole row of them, actually. Yeah, this was some important kind of ridge. Let’s go in and let’s see what’s down here. They’re really well made. It’s full-on brick, stone… Yeah, they spent some time making these. Really. They were once important. Wow. How small is this! Awesome. And here we go. Here’s where they would have put their guns out. You’ve got two different windows here, this way and that way. And they’re all facing towards the international border out there. And this road kind of slopes around a corner. So if you’re driving on this road, you’re not gonna see these bunkers. They’re very low to the ground. They’re built underground. So you can just see, just see outside… just see who’s coming this way. Really cool. But no longer in use. We’re about 100 meters away from the fence now and we can see the fence from here. Along the fence are a bunch of posts, including Pakistani army posts. So you can see with your own eyes. And we’ve already been warned by the farmers to be careful because the army won’t like us going near the fence. So we’re just trying to find a place to stop and film outside the fence here. We’re just 10 meters away from the border now. Check out, friends. We’re right here. So we made it to the border. We got out of the car and the army told us, ‘No. There’s no filming here’. And what’s more, they told us it’s dangerous because there are snipers from Pakistan watching all along the border. And watching for people pulling out things like cameras but what they think could be a gun or what they think could be some kind of surveillance equipment. Anything like that. So they’re like, ‘It’s safe to even just stand here at the border for a few seconds or a few minutes. So that’s it. They were really nice to us. They were just asking us what are we doing and they took a photo of our passport and that kind of stuff. We got to get really close to the border in the car but we couldn’t get out and we couldn’t go and, you know, shoot in front of the border. Not like I could in Bangladesh. The security along this Kashmir border is just intense. And if you see the photo of the border that I took, there are multiple layers of security. So there’s one fence, there’s barbed wire in the middle and then there’s another fence as well. And it’s highly secure. And there are posts, army posts, every kind of 100 meters or so here. And there are big posts up in the sky as well. So they can watch who’s coming across that LoC, that no man’s land. And you can even see houses in Pakistan from right here where we are in Suchetgarh. And some of the problems with this border, with the LoC, is… a lot of guns, a lot of fake currency, a lot of drugs and terrorists are making it across. The terrorists, we saw them in Uri, we saw them in a number of other attacks as well. And drugs… drugs are a major issue, the drugs coming from Pakistan, because they are destroying the youth here in Jammu. There is a huge drug problem here in Jammu with heroin coming across. And the Indian government reckons that 80% of Jammu is coming across the LoC from Pakistan. And how they get it across this border is, they can throw it across. Literally, throw it across to farmers over here, they can tunnel it under or they take it through trucks at the various trade points. So trade points along the Jammu-Kashmir border. But they’ve now since stopped trade across the J&K border because of these issues. And they’ve really strained the relationship between India & Pakistan at the moment with the number of terrorist attacks coming from Pakistani organizations. But I’m not here to be anti-Pakistan or blast them because it’s an issue on both sides. Don’t think that RAW, the Indian Intelligence Agency, isn’t running operations in Pakistan as well. It’s alleged that India is involved in arming the separatists in Baluchistan. So this is how these kinds of intelligence agencies work to destabilize each other’s countries. And it’s a really really sad state of affairs because there are so many good things that could unite Indians & Pakistanis. But the way the politics is, the way the hatred is from those politics, I can’t see the relationship between India & Pakistan changing anytime soon. And a big issue is the Jammu & Kashmir issue. Who owns Jammu & Kashmir? That’s a really really big part of the problem. And yeah, I don’t think this is gonna change anytime soon. We’re here at the Suchetgarh border now. This is the official border between India & Pakistan. You got the BSF here, the Border Security Force, and the army jointly monitor across the entire Jammu& Kashmir border. The army and the BSF, they work together to patrol the border. So here’s the border behind us. They won’t let you film inside the actual border area when you walk through. But it was a really nice experience. So the army guys come and get you and they walk you all the way to the Pakistan & India border. And you can literally see the Pakistan guard towers, the Pakistani people, an ISI agent in a red shirt who was watching me the entire time. And one of the differences here is you can actually see the UN patrolling this international border. They’re driving cars up and down and checking what’s going on. And yes, it’s a really really nice experience. If you’re in Jammu, you’ve definitely got to come here and get as close to Pakistan as you’re probably ever gonna get. We’re about to enter Suchetgarh village now. And here is where they’ve seen a lot of shelling from Pakistan. And this is happening on both sides of the border as well. So Pakistani villagers are getting affected too. Let’s go check it out and I’ll tell you a little bit about the guys who are guarding the border here as well. We’re here in Suchetgarh village. And this village has seen a lot of shelling from Pakistan. And here’s just one example. So the bombs hit the roof, they kill the cattle, and they blow out the wall. And they haven’t repaired the wall yet. And this shelling, it’s just… it blows up everything. You can see it on the actual walls all along the village, even on the village panchayat, which is basically kind of the village government here… the small village government. And in an upcoming video, I’m gonna spend some time living in a village right on the border here. Alright, so you can see right in here. Here are the cows. A number of cattle died in the recent attack here. And I love coming to these villages. The people are so amazing here. As soon as we got here, the guy’s like, ‘do you wanna drink water? Do you want a cold drink of water?’ Now you might be wondering who guards the border here in India. If you saw those army men back at the official border, it is the BSF’s job to guard the border; the Border Security Force. They’re made up of 2,50,000 men and women who patrol the borders in extreme conditions. So in Rajasthan, they’re actually on camels in like 45-degree heat in the summer patrolling the border. Or around here, they’re on foot patrolling the border. Or up in Kashmir during the winter, they’re patrolling in the snow. And the border also includes water. So they have, I think it’s the Creek Crocodile, something like that, and they are patrolling the water as well. And it’s a really hard job. And so while we’re sleeping at night, the Border Security Force are keeping us safe and guarding the border. They don’t stop. They work 24×7. So Long Live Border Security Force and thank you!
