    It looks over exaggerated because of social media otherwise there are many incidents which get unreported.

    Stone for a stone – Kanpur residents to go to Kashmir to throw stones at stone pelters


    A couple of weeks after some tribal youths from Madhya Pradesh had offered to hit back stone pelters in Kashmir with their traditional slingshots, a group from Kanpur in Uttar Pradesh has come up with a similar intent.


    This newly formed group calling itself “Jan Sena” (public’s army) has started ‘practising’ stone pelting in Kanpur and have declared that they will leave for Kashmir on 7th May and help the Indian army and CRPF jawans in tackling the Kashmiri stone pelters.

    Major who tied Kashmiri civilian to jeep given clean chit, Army brass believes he saved lives

    Major Nitin Gogoi who raised a huge controversy after tying a civilian to an Army jeep has been given a clean cheat by a court of inquiry convened over the issue.
    The court of inquiry (CoI) convened by the Army in Jammu Kashmir has given a clean chit to a Major who tied a civilian to an Army jeep's bonnet.

    Following furore, the Army had convened a CoI on April 15, two days after an FIR was filed by J&K Police into the incident, allegedly involving a Major from 53 Rashtriya Rifles.

    No action has been recommended against the Major. A source said, "Court martial is out of the question. Not even disciplinary action was recommended against the officer."


    Sources say the five-vehicle convoy led by the Major had soldiers, 12 poll officials, nine ITBP men and two policemen. The major had reportedly come up with the idea to escape stone-pelting mobs during the by-election to Srinagar. Separatists and militant groups had asked youths to disrupt the elections.

    BRASS BELIEVES HE SAVED LIVES

    Highly placed sources say that the inquiry has given a clean chit to the major in question - Nitin Gogoi. A source told MAIL TODAY that contrary to the hue and cry generated by the clipping on social media, senior army officers had appreciated the presence of mind of the officer to avoid casualties or injuries.

    The source said, "He was congratulated for his acumen and presence of mind that saved many lives."

    Senior Army officers are reportedly of the view that it was 'one-off incident that was blown out of proportion'. Another source said, "In the Army, attaining the objective is more important. The means used by the officer could have been different, but the objective was perfectly met."

    Sources said the officer is of an ACC background. The Army Cadet College wing trains soldiers from the regular Army, Navy and Air Force for commission as officers in the Indian Army.

    The officer has risen from the ranks, and is said to have close to a decade experience. The April 9 incident, which occurred in Budgam, involved troops from 53 Rashtriya Rifles who tied up one Farooq Ahmad Dar on their jeep's bonnet as a 'human shield'.

    'NOT A STONE-PELTER'

    Though Army sources said Dar was a stone-pelter, the latter said he was returning home after casting his vote when jawans picked him up.

    The jeep, the video showed, was the leading vehicle of a convoy. Omar Abdullah tweeted the visuals demanding a CoI.

    Sources said the CoI was headed by an officer of the rank of Colonel. The CoI was a fact-finding mission where the Army had also called Dar to record his statement.

    Dar, who claimed that he had gone out to vote, had told before the media that he received internal injuries. He claimed he was not a stone-pelter. However, after he was tied to the jeep, the convoy was able to pass safely

    'NOT A STONE PELTER' and 'TIED A KASHMIRI CIVILIAN'.

    2 years down the line if someone re-reads the article, it would seem as if the evil Indian Army in order to save themselves from stone pelting used a poor Kashmiri civilian as a human shield who was just minding his business going out to vote. AWW

    Seeds of conflict are being sown.

    It's an India Today article, what do you expect, though the important thing is that Major Gogoi can go about his life without hassles now.
    The whole drama ensued because the press and leftist "intellectuals" started doing their usual ran*i rona, even NYT picked up the story.
    For what its worth the public appeared to be overwhelmingly in support of Army and the major.

    The lion couple was away leaving the little cubs behind in the den. The cubs were hungry and were crying for mother. A goat, in her motherly instinct, had pity on them and fed them with her own milk. After it, she started playing with them, so that they do not go far from the den. After some time, the parents came back. Seeing the goat, they wanted to hunt it. But the cubs shouted, don't kill. She saved us by her own milk. The lions were very pleased and let the goat go. Thereafter the goat became a friend of the lions. She even reached for leaves in the high branches standing on the back of the lion. A hawk was very impressed seeing the goat's relation with the lions. It asked the goat, how could you be a friend of the lions? The goat said, I had once saved the cubs, and the lions are still grateful. The hawk thought, I also will save souls in distress. One day, during heavy rains, it saw some small mice struggling to survive. It took them under its wings. The mice were saved. When rain stopped, the mice left, but the hawk discovered that when they were under his wings, they cut all the feathers. The hawk was unable to fly. He asked the goat, I saved their lives, but they left me crippled. You had saved life of cubs and all the lions are still grateful to you. Why is it so? The goat replied, if you want gratitude, help lions, not mice. Only the lion hearted reciprocate, not mouse hearted. SEE WHAT IS HAPPENING IN KASHMIR. LAST YEAR ARMY SAVED THEM FROM FLOOD. THIS YEAR THEY ARE PELTING STONES AT ARMY. You can not expect lion's character in mice.
