Backing army Chief General Bipin Rawat’s assertion that misinformation compels youngsters to pick up arms in Kashmir, defence experts have asserted that correct information should be given to the people in the Valley to prevent untoward situations.
“The Army Chief has sent a right message that misinformation misleads the young mind. Therefore correct information should be given to the people in the Valley. Spokesman and experts should be there to give the correct information,” defence expert Praful Bakshi told .
Commenting on the same, senior journalist Rahul Jalali said General Rawat’s statement indicates that the Army is sensitive about such issues.
“The role of Indian Army is very sensitive in Kashmir. They have also propelled some missions to motivate youths in the Valley for brotherhood and peace. Army Chief’s statement indicates that army will act sensitively in Kashmir but at the same time it will not stop in countering terrorism,” Jalali told .
General Rawat yesterday 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.
