Let us not defame the Armed Forces

Kudos to The Pioneer for the write-up "Let's not defame the armed forces": click here (July 11). The author Mr. Kanchan Gupta has minced no words when he says that it is now considered fashionable and politically correct to berate the security forces and accuse them of violating human rights and worse. He has quoted irrefutable facts and figures from authentic sources and advanced clinching arguments to prove his points.

You certainly cannot ask the Armed Forces to tie their hands at the back and yet fight against terrorists laced with lethal weapons supplied from across the borders and supported by their stooges operating inside the country.

How come, when a perceived "excess" is committed by the military combatants on duty there is so much hue and cry raised by the self-styled "Human Rights" groups and activists, but not a word is uttered or a whine muttered in case of arson, violence and savagery inflicted on innocent citizens and security forces by the fanatical extremists? Why two different norms? Is one life any less valuable than the other?
Warm regards.

Again a great article. The human rights activists need the safety of armed forces and then criticizes them. It is sad. Thank you for writing this article and speaking for the behalf of thousands of patriotic Indians who fight for the survival/ freedom of the country.
