Army has reacted sharply over allegation of discrimination in the force saying that the forces do not differentiate on the basis of religion. Army response came a day after AIMIM president Asaduddin Owaisi claimed that five out of seven killed in the Sunjuwan military camp attack were Muslims.
“We don’t communalise martyrs, those making statements don’t know the Army well,” said Lieutenant General Devraj Anbu, GOC Northern Command.
Briefing about the recent attacks in Jammu and Kashmir, Lt General Anbu said the ‘enemy’ is attacking softer targets as they are failing at the borders.
General Officer Commander-in-Chief, Northern Command, Lieutenant General Devraj Anbu said, anyone who picks up an arm and is against the state, is a terrorist and the Army will deal with them.
He however expressed concern over youngsters joining militant outfits.”We need to address this trend. In 2017, we focused on leadership and eliminated it. Social media is also responsible for the increase in terror. It is engaging the youth on a large scale, and I think we need to focus on this issue,” he said.
