We don't communalise our martyrs: Army criticizes Owaisi's controversial remark

A day after AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi talked about "Muslim martyrs" in the Sunjuwan camp attack, the Army on Wednesday said that the force was above religion and all soldiers are treated alike whatever their identity may be.

Army Commander Northern Command Lieutenant General Devraj Anbu has said that terrorist outfits Hizb-ul-Mujaheedin, Jaish-e-Mohammad and Lashkar-e-Toiba are hand in glove and planning attacks in Jammu and Kashmir but the Army is well equipped and prepared to foil their nefarious designs. Rs 364 crore spent since the Uri attack to upgrade our security of the camps we have small units all across the country.

About the situation in Kashmir, Anbu said, "The enemy is frustrated and is trying softer targets". "Youths joining terror is a concern, we need to address this trend". "It is time those who join militant ranks and those who support them understand that it benefits nobody and only brings hardships into the lives of the common man", he added. In 2017, we focused on leadership and eliminated it.

"Social media is also responsible for increase in terror, it's engaging the youth at a large scale and I think we need to focus on this issue soon. They are motivated and patriotic soldiers", said Lt. Gen. Anbu, while addressing the Investiture Ceremony of the Northern Command.

His comment was in answer to a question about AIMIM chief Owaisi's comments+ from yesterday. "Out of the seven killed in Jammu, five were Kashmiri Muslims". However, nobody is saying anything now. If you have noticed we haven't put up a paywall unlike many news organisations, - as we want to keep our journalism open. "Terrorists are not differentiating but Muslims are still asked to prove their loyalty to the country", Owaisi said. Outfits say Muslims are anti-nationals & don't love the nation. It's nearly symbolic that if you are in the Army, you are a nationalist.
