Srinagar: Former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir Omar Abdullah Wednesday lambasted forces personnel for filming the misery of a 3-year old toddler who lost his grandfather in Sopore shootout and termed it “propaganda”.
According to Kashmir News Service , the video and photographs of toddler wailing on the body of his grandfather went viral on social media who had received bullets.
Meanwhile former CM of J&K Omar Abdullah while taking to micro-blogging site Twitter termed it “propaganda tool” in Kashmir. He also lambasted “men in uniform” for filming the inconsolably crying child.
Taking to Twitter Omar wrote, “Everything becomes a propaganda tool in the bloody violence in Kashmir. A three year old toddler has to have his misery broadcast to the whole world to drive home the “we good they bad” message. We would have got the point without his misery being filmed & shared so please don’t”.
“We would have expected no less from the men in uniform than to rescue the young boy & for that they have our gratitude but we would expect better than for them to film & use a three year old’s pain the way it’s being done today”, he added
