In yet another case of braid-chopping, a widow mother of two was sprayed and her braid chopped off. Mr. War expressed his deep concern and anguish over the rising incidents of braid-chopping.

We can’t be cowed down by such tactics,” said Mr. War.

He said that it is the handiwork of the agencies but they can’t dent the resilience of the masses. “Government of India has to ultimately bow before the will of the people and such tactics aren’t going to work,” he said. Mr. War said such nefarious tactics are aimed at diverting the attention of the freedom-loving masses, so that they are caught up in issues like these and as a result stay away from various activities related to the movement of right to self-determination.

“We will launch an all-out campaign against such heinous tactics if it doesn’t stop soon,” said Mr. War.

United Nations, Sept 29 : Observing that the humanitarian crisis that has resulted in displacement of hundreds of thousands of Rohingyas from Myanmar not only provides a “breeding ground” for radicalisation, but also puts vulnerable people – including young children – at grave risk, United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres has called for “swift action” to prevent further instability and find a durable solution.

“The situation has spiralled into the world’s fastest developing refugee emergency and a humanitarian and human rights nightmare,” the Secretary-General said today at a Security Council meeting on the situation in Myanmar, a press release by the UN News Centre here said yesterday.

At least 500,000 civilians have fled their homes in the country’s northern Rakhine state since late August and sought refuge in Bangladesh.

According to estimates, some 94 per cent among them are members of the minority Muslim Rohingya community.

There have also been reports of burning of Muslim villages, as well as looting and acts of intimidation. (uni news)

New Delhi, Sept 26: Army chief General Bipin Rawat on Monday said the cross-LoC surgical strike last year was a message to Pakistan and hinted at more strikes in the future if necessary.

“The strikes were a message we wanted to communicate. I think they understood what we meant. These things could follow, if required,” Rawat said in response to a question on whether the message intended to be given through the September 28-29 surgical strike across the Line of Control in Pakistan-administered Kashmir was conveyed, in view of the continuing infiltration attempts and terror incidents.

He was speaking after the launch of book ‘India’s Most Fearless’, along with former Army chief General Dalbir Singh (retd). The book has accounts of modern-day heroes from the three armed forces, including from those who led the surgical strikes conducted along the Myanmar border and across the LoC. (news agency)
