Pakistan condemns award to Major Gogoi for tying Kashmiri man to jeep
on Thursday condemned the Indian Army chief’s Commendation Card to an officer involved in tying up a Kashmiri man to a jeep as a human shield. The Commendation Card for Major Gogoi of 53 Rashtriya Rifles was given for his “sustained efforts” in counter-insurgency operations, the Indian Army had said. “Awarding Major Leetul Gogoi, who brazenly used a Kashmiri youth as a human shield, is condemnable. The Jammu and police have filed a case against Gogoi, which is still on. Zakaria said that it was not the first time that the Indian forces have displayed such “cowardice and inhumanity”.
“Awarding Major Leetul Gogoi, who brazenly used a Kashmiri youth as a human shield, is condemnable. Pakistan today condemned the honouring of an Indian Army officer who tied a civilian in Kashmir to a vehicle and used him as human shield. Zakaria accused India of perpetrating and financing terrorism in Pakistan, saying the confessional statement of Indian prisoner on death row Kulbushan Jadhav confirms it. Zakaria said Kashmir should be demilitarised to implement UNSC resolutions so that the Kashmiri people could exercise their right to self determination. Gogoi, a Major in the 53 Rashtriya Rifles, has been honoured with the Army Chief’s commendation card for his “sustained efforts in counter-insurgency operations”.
