SrinagarReacting to the statement of Indian Army Chief Bipin Rawat on the issue of Human Shield, US based Human Rights Watch Monday said Indian Army Chief shows Criminal Leadership.
Indian army chief shows criminal leadership, backing as “innovative” troops’ use of Kashmir man as a human shield, Human Rights Watch Executive Director Keneth Roth tweeted.
On Sunday the Indian army chief had termed the infamous act of strapping a Kashmiri to an army Jeep as innovative and said that commending the Army officer was to boost the morale of his army which is fighting a dirty war in Kashmir.
Bipin Rawat even went on saying that: I wish these people, instead of throwing stones at us, were firing weapons at us. Then I would have been happy. Then I could do what I (want to do). (CNS)
