Comparing Gen Rawat with Gen Dyer is shameful

On a media website, a historian has published an article comparing Indian Army chief Gen Bipin Rawat with the infamous Brig Gen Reginald Dyer of British Raj, known as the Butcher of Amritsar, the man whose troops fired 1,650 rounds on an unarmed crowd of some 20,000 people gathered in Jallianwala Bagh.

Such writers forget that Brig Gen Dyer had ordered troops to fire on those people who were shouting ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’. These brave people were our freedom fighters, those who gave away their today for a better tomorrow for us and our future generations.

On the other hand, the jawans of Indian army fire on those who kill and maim innocent Indians, who behead our soldiers, who use children as human shields to attack our troops.

There must be no mercy for such brutal terrorists, because they do not have a shred of sensibility left in their hearts. To speak about the “human rights” of such attackers is meaningless. Those who compare Gen Rawat with Brig Gen Dyer must feel ashamed.
