De­fence Min­is­ter Ex­tend­ing Sol­i­dar­ity with Au­rangzeb’s Fam­ily is Laud­able

Alive - - Editoral -

Abrave and die hard na­tion­al­ist like Au­rangzeb Khan can never die. His life is the big­gest of­fer­ing that he him­self vol­un­tar­ily sac­ri­ficed for the na­tion. No weapon, no ter­ror­ist, no Pak­istan, no China or any other coun­try can ever kill the likes of brave sol­diers like Au­rangzeb of 44 RR who be­longed to 4 Jammu and Kash­mir Light In­fantry at Shadi­marg in Shopian and hailed from the vil­lage Salani in Poonch dis­trict of Jammu.

Any In­dian who does not feel to salute Au­rangzeb can never be a true In­dian! What Au­rangzeb has done so will­ingly can­not be done even by me and I can­didly ac­knowl­edge this! No award, no Bharat Ratna, no No­bel Prize, no Paramveer Chakra or any other award can ever hon­our Au­rangzeb be­cause Au­rangzeb stands tallest above all these petty awards!

Even af­ter be­ing cap­tured by ter­ror­ists and even af­ter be­ing tied to a tree, he did not show any sign of fear nor did he plead to be spared. He vol­un­tar­ily ac­knowl­edged his brave role in elim­i­nat­ing sev­eral ter­ror­ists along with Maj Shukla when cross ques­tioned by ter­ror­ists with­out show­ing any sign of fear! He could have blamed oth­ers for killing ter­ror­ists and could have es­caped be­ing killed but he dared to con­front them and didn’t fear for his life nor pleaded for mercy!

Au­rangzeb is our na­tional pride, na­tional icon and no politi­cian, no po­lit­i­cal party can ever mock at him by deny­ing him any award be­cause he stands above all such petty con­sid­er­a­tions and his supreme sac­ri­fice is the big­gest tes­ti­mony to it. It is ex­tremely heart­en­ing to see that our De­fence Min­is­ter Nirmala Sithara­man de­cided to her­self per­son­ally pay a visit to Au­rangzeb’s vil­lage and meet his en­tire fam­ily! She said that, “I have come to spend some time with the fam­ily of the mar­tyr and the mes­sage I am car­ry­ing is that the mar­tyred sol­dier stands out as an in­spi­ra­tion for the en­tire coun­try.” Ear­lier we saw how Army Chief Gen Bipin Rawat also him­self went to meet Au­rangzeb’s fam­ily and as­sured all pos­si­ble help! This cer­tainly boosts the sag­ging morale of the slain sol­dier’s fam­ily for which both the De­fence Min­is­ter Nirmala Sithara­man and the Army Chief Gen Bipin Rawat must be com­mended!

The big­gest trib­ute that we can pay to Au­rangzeb is by adopt­ing zero tol­er­ance pol­icy to­wards ter­ror­ists and Pak­istan! No li­cense should ever again be given to Pak­istan or ter­ror­ists in the name of Ramzan be­cause this tan­ta­mount to mock­ing at Ramzan which un­der no cir­cum­stances can ever be as­so­ci­ated with ter­ror­ists and Pak­istan who leave no op­por­tu­nity to slaugh­ter our cit­i­zens and sol­diers when­ever they get any op­por­tu­nity to do so!

Mo­ham­mad who is Au­rangzeb’s brother and who him­self serves in the Army and is cur­rently posted in Pune was very an­gry over the cow­ardly and das­tardly man­ner in which his brother Au­rangzeb was mur­dered by ter­ror­ists af­ter cap­tur­ing him at gun point says point blank: “We want jus­tice for Au­rangzeb. The ter­ror­ists who car­ried out his as­sas­si­na­tion must be elim­i­nated. We want re­venge. I am my­self pre­pared to do this. Post me in Kash­mir and I will see to it that I kill my brother killers ruth­lessly. I spoke to Au­rangzeb on Thurs­day morn­ing, the day he was kidnapped, we both planned to cel­e­brate Eid in a grand way with our par­ents in our na­tive vil­lage.” His anger stands per­fectly jus­ti­fied. Ev­ery pa­tri­otic In­dian stands with him, his fa­ther and mother in this hour of grief! He cer­tainly de­served to live much longer but ter­ror­ists killed him!

De­fence Min­is­ter Nirmala Sithara­man meets the fam­ily mem­bers of ri­fle­man Au­rangzeb who was ab­ducted and killed by mil­i­tants in Jammu and Kash­mir on June 15.
