New Delhi, June 17, 2017: Army Chief General Bipin Rawat on Saturday said some misinformation is being spread among the people of Jammu and Kashmir, which in turn is compelling the younger generation to pick up arms.
Addressing the media after presiding over a Passing Out Parade ceremony at Air Force Academy, General Rawat said “Some misinformation is being spread among the people of Jammu and Kashmir which is causing trouble and possibly compelling some of the younger generation to pick up arms. But, I hope, they will soon understand that what they are doing is not correct.”
Talking about the J&K’s Arwani encounter, the army chief said that some parts of South Kashmir are in trouble and necessary counter-action is being taken.
“Some parts of South Kashmir are in trouble, but necessary actions are being taken to ensure the situation there is soon brought under control,” he said.
“We care about human life and make sure human rights are not violated. We believe very strongly in human rights,” Rawat said when asked about the volatile situation in the Valley.
During the event, he conferred the ‘President’s Commission’ on behalf of the President of India to 120 graduating trainees of various branches.
The ceremony also included the presentation of ‘ Wings and Brevets’ to Flight Cadets, who successfully completed the Flying and Navigation training respectively.
