The Indian army, in an attempt to stop some youngsters in Kashmir from joining terror organizations, have been going across the state, meeting their families and promising them of bringing their son back.
In a video accessed by Republic TV, an Army jawan could be seen asking people in the Valley to stop youngsters from other families from taking the wrong path, while assuring them that the forces are there for the safety of the citizens in the area.
"Just think about it, today I am here just to explain you this. That day everyone would be highly emotional and nobody would be in the condition to think properly. You have to think rationally. I am repeating it again and again that kind of situation shouldn't even arise. I keep trying and assuring the families that we are with them and we are ready to bring back their son. But, if bullets are fired and this has already happened before, you know a number of encounters have happened," he told a family there.
The Army jawan also mentioned that families should contact the forces if they find that any youngster joining any kind of terrorist organization.
"And keeping this in mind I have come over here. In case such a situation arises, we don't want to put other peoples lives in danger. We don't want any innocent to be killed. So that people don't protest because in such a situation they might lose their life, but you can help us with it (unclear) whatever action you decide to take, you can contact with our commander, you can talk to him he will be here," he added.
Further, the jawan said that the Indian army is there for peace, but should a youngster of Kashmir follow the wrong path, then clashes will take place.
"But just think about it. I am not against anyone, we are here to maintain peace and we wish to maintain peace in the future too. But the path he is walking on and the task which I am assigned. He is following his path and I am following my path and clashes will definitely happen someday. But just be careful that no other kid of this society should go astray. Kashmir is being destroyed, it's disappointing. Who will take care of future Kashmir?" he added.
