Recognise security forces martyrs as your icons : Khanna to youth

BJP National Vice-President and J & K Incharge, Avinash Rai Khanna, along with Minister of Industries and Commerce, Chander Prakash Ganga, Member Legislative Council, Ramesh Arora, Vice-Chairpersons Dr. Ali and G. M. Mir and District President Fayaz Ahmad Bhat today visited the family of police martyr Feroz Ahmad Dar at Sangam, who sacrificed his life along with five other policemen in a gruesome ambush in the Achabal area of Anantnag district by the LeT militants.

Avinash Rai Khanna, while consoling the family of the martyr, said that the cowardly act of the militants will not shatter the morale of the security forces. He said that they have sacrificed their lives for the Society and the Nation and thus the whole Nation stands by their side at the time of distress. His aged parents, wife and kids have the support of every Indian and the God as he was a true Muslim and a good human being with a duty committed heart.

Khanna also appealed to the youth of the state to follow the path shown by the martyrs, who loved their country. Instead of playing into the hands of anti-social elements, the youth should utilize and channelize their energies for the betterment of the society and themselves. He said that the men in police and security forces, who get martyrdom, should be recognized as their icons by the youth and not those militants who are carrying weapons to kill the innocent civilians.

Chander Prakash Ganga, while condoling the death of the cop, said that the sacrifices of Feroz Ahmad Dar and others will boost the morale of the security forces and they will take a pledge to wipe out the militancy from the state. He assured Dar’s family that the government as well as the entire nation is with them in this hour of grief and sorrow.
