We care for human life, we do not violate rights: Army chief
Army Chief General Bipin Rawat on Saturday said that the security forces were doing a great job in bringing the Kashmir situation under control. "You should not look at the Jammu and Kashmir situation from the perspective of what is being projected. Let me tell you the security forces and all other agencies are doing a great job to bring the situation under control," he told reporters.
"Parts of South Kashmir are troublesome. Necessary actions being taken to ensure situation there is soon brought under control," he said, adding, "We care about human life and make sure human rights are not violated."
Asked if the situation is deteriorating in the Valley with each passing day, Rawat said, "..well, not really. We are there to make sure the situation is brought under control. Therefore, I think at the present juncture we have to continue with the task in the manner in which we are carrying on."
"The Indian armed forces belong to the people. We are the people's armed forces. Therefore, the Army is for the people. We have been called upon to do a particular task by the Government of India. Because they do feel that there is a requirement for the Army to be there. Therefore, we are there," he said.
