@Stranger: The civilian govt. in Pakistan controls neither India centric policy nor army. . So when there is something deliberate how it will stop? Vested interest in the Pakistani army/ ISI does have the purpose to keep the LOC disturbed to drum beat and make propangada to malign the Indian side and stop normalization of relation either by talk and/or trade. Indian side has no purpose and nothing to gain from firing except retaliation and stop infiltration of militants from Pakistan.
