Omar tells security forces to uphold human rights

Asks them to be careful while dealing with people

 Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Sunday asked security forces to ensure that human rights of people are respected and advised them to differentiate between strictness and misbehaviour while discharging their duties.

Addressing the passing out parade of para-military CRPF candidates at Humhama Training Centre in Budgam district, the Chief Minister advised them to uphold the principles of protecting human rights and extending bestbehaviour towards people while dealing with various matters.

He also highlighted the role of persons in uniform to safeguard the life and property of the citizens and combat internal and external threats to the Country. 

“The sacrifices made by the forces including CRPF and Jammu and Kashmir Police to safeguard the people and help the State to maintain law and order and restore peace are of highest degree depicting the bravery and commitment of personnel of all ranks,” Omar said.

The Chief Minister said that para-military forces like CRPF and police personnel have to deal with challenging situations which are particularly of complex nature in a State like Jammu and Kashmir where combating militancy and helping to control law and order situations have to be dealt simultaneously. 

He said every care needs to be taken in this kind of situation to deal with people and help control law and order situations.

Omar congratulated the passing out candidates and attributed the snowfall at the time of parade as a good omen for them to begin a stupendous career in their life.

“Your good work often goes unnoticed while any flaw in your service rendering raises fingers pointing towards you, as such, you have to concentrate on rendering flawless and careful duty with your best capacity and highest degree of sincerity for which you have taken the oath,” the Chief Minister added.

The CRPF Training Centre came into being in 1990 at Humhama and served as an important training centre throughout the year even during the harsh winters in Kashmir. 

It is the only training centre in North India and contributes a lot in imparting modern training to the CRPF which plays the role of striking reserve to assist the States to maintain the law and order and in counter insurgency operations.
