The Hush Post: The martyrdom of slain Indian Army rifleman Aurangzeb, killed by terrorists over a month back while on his way home to celebrate Eid, would not go waste. The intention of terrorists who wanted to deter Kashmiri youth from joining the Indian armed forces have got a blow on their faces.
50 people including some of Aurangzeb’s friends, relatives and villagers from Salani village in Mendhar, where Aurangzeb belonged to, have left lucrative jobs in Saudi Arabia to return permanently to their village. They are willing to join the police and army to avenge Aurangzeb’s death.
Aurangzeb’s friends and family members had gathered at his home in Mendhar to pray for him and remember him. “When we heard about the killing of brother Aurangzeb, we left Saudi Arabia the same day, and forcibly got ourselves relieved from the job. It can’t be done on the spot, but we managed somehow. 50 youth from this village returned with me. The only mission is to avenge the death of Aurangzeb”, said Mohammad Kiramat, one of the villagers, while talking to a TV news channel.
The terrorists have been indulging in these acts of brutality by targeting Kashmiri youth employed in the police or armed forces to instill a sense of fear and to demotivate others who are keen on joining the Indian armed forces. Two policemen and a CRPF jawan were killed when they were home on leave. The terrorists have also warned special police officers to announce their resignations.
Recently, a video of an SPO Mudassir Wani abducted in captivity was released. He was forced to appeal SPOs to leave their jobs and earn some other livelihood.
Aurangzeb’s brother, a serving army man, blames the terrorist handlers for the killings. Auragzeb’s father Mohammad Hanief is an ex-serviceman of the Jammu and Kashmir Light Infantry.
