Defence Minister Extending Solidarity with Aurangzeb’s Family is Laudable
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!
