Targeting Policemen and their families an act of cowardice - ABHMS


JAMMU: Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha held a meeting today under the Chairmanship of Seema Mahajan, State Women Wing President of party. Attacks on Policemen, killing them, subjecting their families to torture and their houses to arson by terrorists were discussed. Expressing deep grief over these coward acts, Seema Mahajan referred to the advisory issued by Dr S.P.Vaid, Director General of Police, Jammu and Kashmir, asking Policemen not to visit their houses for some months being at the radar of terrorists. Policemen in Jammu and Kashmir have suffered immensely, thousands having laid down their lives and got permanent injuries performing their duties, saving life and property of the people of the State. They have been working committedly round the clock without caring for their families and their ownselves and it is painful that in turn their families are being harassed, which is inhuman and uncalled for. Jammu and Kashmir Police has always been presenting an example of extreme tolerance and has stood by the people of the State at every occasions, may these be natural calamities or man-made devastating innuendos. Director General Police has personally been making relentless efforts to ensure that the people of the State lead a peaceful and dignified life, said Seema. Police Headquarters has been regularly dispatching advisories to field apparatus to develop synergy with the public, listen to their grievances and patiently deal with them simultaneously with bringing out solution to their legitimate problems. Our state is confronted with many challenging situations that include the Pakistani ceasefire violations, infiltration of terrorists and support to separatist organisations. Police, as such, has to perform a wide spectrum of duties and public support is paramount for maintenance of law and order. Tourism season and the Amarnath Yatra is around and this is the time when people of Kashmir have to earn their livelihood. She said people should realize that forces inimical to peace will definitely be making all out efforts to cause disturbance, which can be thwarted by the Police only with the active support of the people of Kashmir.
