New Delhi, July 25: The situation in Kashmir valley has drawn many lines, most prominent among which are sympathy for violence hit Kashmiris and the bigger one that is the anger for those instigating hate in Kashmir. This has had repercussions throughout India and one such event has been reported from a train journey between New Delhi and Ranchi on the Garib Rath Express.
According to reports, a heated discussion between a Kashmiri passenger and an Army jawan over the unrest in Kashmir went further than could be handled.
MS Baig, originally from the valley, was travelling from New Delhi to Uttar Pradesh in coach G-14 of Garibrath Express. A passenger, so far unidentified, from Jharkhand was in the same coach.
Baig got into an argument with an Army Jawan where Baig reportedly said, “The Indian Armed Forces will be driven away from Kashmir by Pakistani forces like dogs.”
In reaction to Baig’s comment, the passenger from Jharkhand hurled abuses and slapped Baig. After this, other passengers in the coach also joined in.
Jagmohan Singh, another passenger, said, “We were in the next bogey when we heard heated arguments. The victim was heard saying that the Indian Army will be driven away from Kashmir by Pakistani forces like dogs. He had also reportedly said that north India will be in trouble if Kashmir stops providing water.”
So far, no formal complaint has been lodged with Railway police.
