Amit Shah: Relatives Of Terrorists Or Stone-Pelters In Kashmir Won’t Get Government Jobs

GG News Bureau

Jammu and Kashmir, 27th May. According to PTI, Union Minister of Home Affairs Amit Shah declared on Sunday that government posts in Jammu and Kashmir would not be granted to the relatives of terrorists and stone-pelters.
In an interview with the news agency, Shah stated, “We have decided in Kashmir that if someone joins a terrorist organization, their family members will not get any government job.” He went on to say that this also applied to people who hurl stones at security personnel during demonstrations.

The Home Minister made it clear that anyone coming forward to report family members who might be involved with terrorist organizations would receive a respite from the government. The Home Minister asserted that when terrorists are encircled by law enforcement, they are initially offered the opportunity to surrender. “We call family members like his mother or wife and ask them to make an appeal to the terrorist to surrender,” he stated. “If he does not listen, he dies.”

Shah asserted that the custom of carrying militants’ funeral processions outside after their deaths had been discontinued in Kashmir by his government. “We have ensured that the terrorist is buried with all religious formalities but in an isolated place,” he stated.

He added that political funding to terrorist organizations in the area had been successfully stopped by the National Investigation Agency, India’s anti-terrorism agency housed under the home ministry.

According to the Home minister, terror incidents have decreased as a result of the Centre’s ability to effectively target terrorists and “eliminate the terror ecosystem,” under the direction of the Narendra Modi government.

PTI claimed that data from the home ministry presented in Parliament last year indicated that there were 228 “terrorist-initiated incidents” in Jammu and Kashmir in 2018 compared to 50 in 2023.

Compared to 40 in 2023, there were 189 gunfights in 2018 between militants and security personnel. In Jammu and Kashmir, terror acts in 2018 claimed the lives of 55 people; by 2023, that number had dropped to 5. In Jammu and Kashmir, terror-related violence claimed the lives of 91 security personnel in 2018, compared to 15 in 2023. Compared to 15 in 2023, 91 security officers died in Jammu and Kashmir as a result of terror-related violence in 2018.

Article 370 of the Constitution, which granted the former state of Jammu and Kashmir special status, was revoked by the Center on August 5, 2019.
