Social media misinformation instigating Kashmiri youth to violence: Army chief

  • Srinagr Youths in Jammu and Kashmir are being misinformed and misguided by forces inimical to peace Army Chief General Bipin Rawat today said

He also emphasised on the entry of women cadets in the Indian Army and said that it would be a great step in several ways.

The Indian Military Academy celebrated the passing-out of 490 cadets in Dehradun in a formal ceremony on Saturday. "We always try that youth, who are misled, should drop their weapons and come with us", the Army Chef said.

If we see the current scenario of women in the Indian army, we realise that women are allowed to work in the army sector only in the fields of medicine, legal wing, educational sector, signals and engineering wings.

If the army starts recruiting women in combat roles, India will be joining a select group of countries like Germany, Australia, Canada, the United States, Britain, Denmark, Finland, France, Norway, Sweden and Israel, where women are allowed to fight wars.

On the issue of women in combat roles, he said that "it's important to have women in combat roles in the army even in rank and file positions".

Last year, Avani Chaturvedi, Bhawana Kanth and Mohana Singh became the first women fighter pilots to be formally commissioned by the Indian Air Force.

Answering a question on the ongoing unrest in Kashmir, General Rawat claimed youth in the valley are being instigated through a campaign of misinformation on social media.

The Army's mission was to "restore" peace in Kashmir, and the youth there must "put down their arms" and help the Army attain its mission, he said, adding that the Army "is not deployed in Kashmir to perform killings".

Situation in Kashmir would normalise soon and was not as bad was being made out in the media, he said in interviews to two news agencies.
