STATE TIMES NEWSSrinagar: Lieutenant Governor (LG) Manoj Sinha advocated comprehensive measures on Wednesday to deal with radicalisation of youngsters in the Union Territory, saying terror elements from thousands of miles away are trying to infiltrate a large section of the society with the help of rabid propaganda.Addressing policemen on the occasion of the Police Commemoration Day at Zewan on the city outskirts, Sinha hailed the Jammu and Kashmir Police for maintaining law and order and dealing with terrorism in the Union Territory.“Indoctrination is not limited to an individual taking up a gun after brainwashing by terror outfits, but with the help of rabid online and offline propaganda, terror elements sitting thousands of miles away are trying to infiltrate a large section of the society,” the LG said in his address.He said as a part of comprehensive counter-radicalisation measures, there must be a well-coordinated, community-supported platform to publicise and propagate the sensible voices against terrorist ideology.“Our strategy on counter-radicalisation and de-radicalisation must be inclusive and should involve community elders to promote the message of peace, prosperity and harmony,” Sinha said.He called for a regular change in strategy to deal with terror-funding from across the border.“To deal with terror-funding, there is a need to change our strategy regularly so that we tackle it with a comprehensive response,” the LG said.He said cyber-patrolling and round-the-clock monitoring of malicious content on the dark web is another challenge, but asserted that the police and other security forces are capable of formulating an effective mechanism to deal with it.“As far as I know, they are already working on several aspects. We must have in-house expertise to analyse social media content, which will also help in increasing public outreach. I would suggest regular district-level workshops on the use of social media and communication skills,” he said.Hailing the Jammu and Kashmir Police for maintaining law and order and at the same time, dealing with terrorism in the Union Territory, the LG said he is sure that the force will continue to safeguard the reputation and pride of the country.“Apart from maintaining law and order in Jammu and Kashmir, you are fighting the terror inflicted by our neighbouring country. I know you will continue to safeguard India’s reputation and pride. I think the police’s message that innocents will not be touched, but criminals will not be spared is enough for those spreading terror in the country,” he said.Advisors to the Lt Governor- Rajeev Rai Bhatnagar and Baseer Ahmad Khan; Chief Secretary, BVR Subrahmanyam; Principal Secretary to the Government, Home Department, Shaleen Kabra; DGP Prisons, VK Singh; ADGP Armed, AK Choudhary; Divisional Commissioner, Kashmir, Pandurang K. Pole, besides senior officers of Police and Civil Administration and Family members of the Martyrs were present on the occasion.Dr. Darakhshan Andrabi, Member, Central Waqf Council, and Chairperson, Waqf Development Committee, Ministry of Minority Affairs, Government of India was also present.“It was a sentimental but proud moment for me to salute the martyrs and pay respects to them who laid their lives for the nation” Dr. Darakhshan Andrabi said.“The men in uniform are always putting their lives to risk for the safety and security of the nation. They fight with valour the hidden and coward enemies who are trained to strike from back and make us feel secure in our homes. I salute to every police man fighting for the country amid great risks to their lives,’ she said.Speaking to the media on the occasion Dr. Andrabi said, “Uniformed Martyrs are our real heroes who are protecting our honour and lives,” was my message on the day.“During the past one year, the police force in J&K has been strengthened a lot. They have made our lives trouble free on streets, they are helping the society fight the drug menace and bravely eliminating the enemies of the country in co-ordination with other security forces,” she said.
