Since decades, Kashmir has been a victim of extreme terrorism. This paradise on earth has never breathed peacefully since the Partition. Innocent people have lost their lives and brave soldiers have sacrificed themselves to protect our land and pride. And when a soldier dies, the nation bows before his sacrifice.
This is what happened when an assistant sub-inspector of J&K police, Abdul Rashid, was killed in a battle with militants in the Anantnag district.
The DIG of South Kashmir police has penned a heartfelt letter to Rashid’s daughter, Zohra, and his words will make you realize the responsibility and the courage a soldier carries in his heart.
Read the letter here:
My Dear Zohra,
Your tears have shaken many hearts.The sacrifice made by your father will always be remembered. You are too young to understand as to why this happened.
People responsible for such violence who attack the lawful symbol of the state and society are indeed insane and enemy of humanity.Your father like all of us represented Jammu Kashmir police force- a hallmark of valor and sacrifice.Advertisement
Many of our police families have suffered and undergone irreparable trauma defending the common good of the society.All those faces and stories indeed create a rich history making us proud. We cannot forget our heroes, our dear ones with whom we lived and worked all these years.All these families are part of a great journey that JKP has undertaken serving the society.
Remember we all are one family at this critical phase. Every drop of your tear sears our heart.May almighty give us the strength to go ahead with our mission of rendering services for the betterment of the society.The vow that we have taken when we donned the uniform stands supreme. Let our spirit and commitment become the harbinger of change, let it be the message of peace and harmony for the fellow citizens.We will always cherish the memory of ASI Abdul Rashid as a true policeman who sacrificed his life in the line of the duty.RIPAdvertisement
