While hundreds of Kashmiri youth continue to throw stones at security force personnel at the behest of Separatists, a young man from the Valley, Nabeel Ahmed Wani, topped the BSF assistant commandant exam.
He told reporters that it was his desire to serve the country by joining either the Indian Army or any of the paramilitary forces. He had previously tried to crack the exams in 2013 but could not qualify.
“At present, I am working as a junior engineer with the water share department of the state government in Udhampur,” he said.
“While working as a junior engineer, I never thought that I have to work close to my home, and always wanted to work for the country and join either the army or the BSF. I used college books and internet for self-study for the preparation of the exams,” added Wani.
He pointed out that the youth of Kashmir are capable and can achieve greater things if given the right opportunity. So he suggests that the government should engage more with the people of the state and highlight its schemes such as ‘Beti bachao and Beti Padhao’.
Addressing the youth of his state, Wani said, “I will urge you to take the right path; do something for your country and your motherland so that your country and motherland are recognized all over world.”
An unrest in ongoing in Kashmir following the killing of terrorist Burhan Wani on July 8.
