Was I an animal, asks Farooq Dar who was tied to a jeep by Major Gogoi

Which law in the country makes use of human shield legal?

That’s the only question Farooq Dar, the weaver from Chill village in central Kashmir’s Budgam district who was tied to a jeep by army on election day in April, has for those supporting Major Leetul Gogoi’s action.

“If it was legal under any Indian law, what can I possibly say,” he asked. “I can’t pick up a stick and go and fight with those honouring the officer,” a disheartened Dar told HT. Dar however has a very stern question to what he calls humanity.

“I want to ask only one thing, was I an animal that I was tied and exhibited,?” he asked. “Kya mein koi bhains ya bail tha”,” (Was I a buffalo or a bull?”).

Although army says the officer was not honoured for his action in Budgam, Kashmir’s main opposition, National Conference feels “the honour is akin to condoning the action”.

“You are not even waiting for your own court to give a verdict but honouring a man who is was being probed for something as bizarre as using a human shield,” said Junaid Matto, NC spokesman.
