Security forces stump anti-India slogan writers

And sometimes a graffiti is turned to the advantage of security forces who "edit" the hostile content directed against the country.

"Go India Go," was a graffiti painted by some anti-national elements in the main chowk of Nowhatta which was "edited" by security forces as "Good India Good".

A senior police official of the central para-military force today said this cannot be allowed.
"A handful of these youths cannot terrorise either security forces or the local population with these slogans," the official said.

The pitched stone pelting battles which continue for hours together at places mainly in Nowhatta in downtown city and Old bridge in Baramulla in North Kashmir are often followed by heated exchanges of words as well.

"They (stone pelters) hurl abuses and sometimes they are responded to in the same coin and zeal," said a senior security force official, arguing "we need to take them in stone pelting war as well as psycological warfare as well" while controlling the mob frenzy.

The official said when the remarks get personal the instructions to the security personnel are to avoid losing their cool no matter whatever provocation.

Name games involving the stone pelters and security men are also not uncommon.
Like the way security personnel have nick-named some of the known stone pelters as "Bad Dog", "Arshad Googly", the stone pelters too have kept names for them.

"We have a constable with a big moustache, he has been named as Chambal Ka Daku (bandit of Chambal ravines) while another hails from South India and has been named as Vada Sambhar," the official said.
