We don’t communalize martyrs: Army slams Owaisi over ‘Muslim martyrs’ comment!
The Indian Army has replied back on Owaisi’s allegation. Hyderabad MP and AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi had asked why those questioning the patriotism of Muslims were silent over the deaths of Muslim soldiers in the Sunjuwan army camp terror attack. The Indian Army has appropriately answered him back.
Indian Army Silences Owaisi!
The Army on Wednesday said it does “not communalize martyrs”, slamming Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi for his comments on soldiers killed in the Sunjuwan terror attack.
“We do not communalize martyrs, those making statements don’t know the Army well,” General Officer Commanding-in-Chief Northern Command Lt Gen. Devraj Anbu told reporters.
He, however, did not name the Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen MP who on Tuesday asked why those questioning the patriotism of Muslims were silent over the deaths of Muslim soldiers in the Sunjuwan army camp terror attack. “Five of the seven killed in the attack (on Saturday) were Kashmiri Muslims. Now, everybody is silent on their sacrifice,” Owaisi had said, asking: “Why such silence on this issue?”
Army puts Owaisi and Congress in place…
The officer said the youth joining militant ranks in the Kashmir Valley continued to be a matter of concern. The social media had been used extensively to spread separatist sentiment among the youth, he added.
“Social media is also responsible for increase in terror, it’s engaging the youth at a large scale and I think we need to focus on this issue soon…It is time those who join militant ranks and those who support them understand that it benefits nobody and only brings hardships into the lives of the common man,” he said.
Anbu said identifying the terror leadership and eliminating them continued to be the force’s priority as far as tackling terrorism was concerned.
“The enemy is frustrated and is trying to strike softer targets. When they fail at borders they attack camps.”
The army commander said Jaish-e-Muhammad (JeM), Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and the Hizbul Mujahideen (HM) were operating together whether in the valley or elsewhere in the state. “There is no differentiation. They keep jumping from one outfit to the other. Anyone who picks up arms and is against the state is a terrorist, and we will deal with him,” he said.
It’s high time that Owaisi and Congress need to understand that giving communal spins to deaths of army men will lead you nowhere. It seems to be a mere dirty trick by his community and nothing else. It proves how dignified Owaisi and his thinking is. When a common man is smart enough to understand the sensitivity of this issue, then why not a leader likes Owaisi?
It was not just Owaisi alone but there was another who plunged into the ring to save Owaisi and defend his statement. It was none other than Congress leader, Sandeep Dikshit who came forward to support Owaisi’s statement. It is quite shameful on part of a former CM’s son that he has stood against ethics and morality.
Someone probably needs to waken Owaisi that making such senseless communal spins is not gonna get him publicity nor favour him on votes. This behaviour is rather lowering his image in the minds of the people. If not towards a religion, at least have a sense of respect towards the Army men and their dignity.
