Govt Trying To Rehabilitate Released Militants24 December 2011
Srinagar: The government on Friday said that it was trying to rehabilitate surrendered and released militants in Jammu and Kashmir. “We are trying to rehabilitate all those who happen to be released or surrendered militants. We are trying to get them into mainstream through opportunity of good employment and also trying their rehabilitation with EDF projects so that they can start their own business and lead a good life,” minister of state for home, Nasir Aslam Wani told reporters on the sidelines of 10th Attestation-cum-Passing-Out Parade at Subsidiary Police Training Centre, Sheeri in Baramulla district. He also credited J&K Police as one of the best forces in India and said that the force has a vital role in maintaining lasting peace and order in the State. “Police has successfully dealt various challenges after giving supreme sacrifices of its brave jawans and officers to keep national flag afloat. The force has to increase its proficiency in different fields to deal with the challenges and to strengthen image of the Organization,” Minister added. Addressing the function, Aslam appreciated the professional police officers in taking extra pains in imparting basic training to the recruits. He said the training imparted to the recruits in using non-lethal weapons to tackle law-and-order situations would strengthen the training skills of the force. The training courses oriented to tackle law-and-order situations have been yielding good results in tackling the situations and the organization has to make more advancement in such fields. The Minister asked the outgoing recruits to adopt protective behaviour while dealing with mobs and in other fields of policing and they should consider themselves as public servants. He hoped the jawans would adhere the pledge they have taken today, while discharging their duties in the field and provide justice to the people without considering their creed or caste. He said the people have great expectations from JKP and the men in khaki should not adopt an aggressive behaviour while dealing with the common masses. The jawans have to remain active in public service and their attitude should always be sympathetic towards the public. The outgoing jawans have to prove themselves people-friendly by exhibiting their discipline and impartiality, he added.
