Human shield row: Indian army chief shows “criminal leadership”: Human Rights Watch
A day after Indian army chief Bipin Rawat termed the act of tying a Kashmiri to an army Jeep as “innovative”, Executive Director, Human Rights Watch Keneth Roth on Monday said that “ Indian army chief shows criminal leadership, backing as “innovative” troops’ use of Kashmir man as a human shield.”
Roth took to social networking site twitter and wrote: Indian army chief shows criminal leadership, backing as “innovative” troops’ use of Kashmir man as a human shield.
Rawat on Sunday said the main objective of awarding Major Leetul Gogoi, when a Court of Inquiry was finalising its probe into the incident, was to “boost the morale of young officers of the force who are operating in a very difficult environment in the militancy-infested state”.
“This is a proxy war and proxy war is a dirty war. It is played in a dirty way. The rules of engagements are there when the adversary comes face-to-face and fights with you. It is a dirty war…. That is where innovation comes in. You fight a dirty war with innovations,” Rawat had said.
