‘Don’t ignore sacrifice of Security Forces’


Tawi, July 25: It is most unfortunate that the plight of security forces struggling to restore law and order by risking their lives goes unnoticed. In fact, the paramilitary forces, police and Army are bearing the brunt of the violence, triggered by separatists, militants and their handlers in Pakistan. A large number of Security forces, police and army have been killed from the last so many years in particular a few months as well as in present crisis in the valley.  Around 1000 paramilitary jawans received major injuries in the street protests. The patrol parties and bunkers are being frequently targeted with stones, petrol bombs and even firearms. In recent clashes around 100 security installations were attacked by the unruly mobs during last ten days. The tragic story of the attacks on security forces is that Since july 8, when the terrorist Burhan Wani and his two accomplices were killed in an encounter, the security forces are being constantly attacked.”At many places the mobs forcibly tried to enter security force establishments with the intention to seize weapons and harm force personnel. Two police stations Damhal Hanjipora and Achabal, Tehsil Office Kokernag and Police Post Kund, Qazigund, Range office DH Pora, Court Complex, DH Pora, Police Post Narbal and a fire tender vehicle of DH Pora were set on fire. On the same day the mobs looted weapons from Police Station DH Pora and police personnel were fired upon of recent Three policemen went missing from Damhal Hanji Pora police station, their whereabouts are yet to be ascertained.During these clashes  the security camps, police stations and posts of Sangam, Seer, Gopalpora, Mattan, Larnoo Kokernag, Dooru, Vessu, Janglat Mandi Behibagh Kulgam, Barzulla, Awantipora, Pulwama, Liter Pulwama, minority picket Hall Pulwama, Newa, Pulwama, , Pattan, Baramulla, Palhalan, Gantamulla, Sheeri, Kreeri, Bandipora, Lalpora, Bomie Nowgam, Batamaloo, Police Post Humhama and, GO's Mess Humhama were badly damaged.” Besides unruly mob set on fire GRP Gaurd, RPF barrack, Bijbehara railway station and one vehicle at Lassipura, pulwamaOn the first day of street protests at least 96 force personnel were seriously injured and in a major tragedy the mobs killed  one policeman namely Afroz  Ahmad by throwing him into Jhelum along with his armored vehicle and also  badly damaged Fire Services vehicle which was on way to Sangam on a call near Bijbehara. They were skeptical about the civilian administration that reportedly bungled relief at many places. The demand was actually motivated by tremendous support lend by the armed forces in rescuing people and ensuring their immediate rehabilitation, as most of the areas were even beyond reach of the civilian administration. The armed forces are the first visible entities at any accident site or the places engulfed by fire. They always remain a phone call distance when civilians are in distress. The mainstream leaders trust less on local police but speak more against the security forces, despite having first preference for non-state jawans to provide them protection. The answer is not difficult to comprehend. Actually the vested interests, the number of whom is unfortunately huge, want to have best of both the worlds. This can be achieved only by hammering the army to hilt. The  deliberate attempts are being made  to defame and malign the army and belittling them in the public eyes.
