Jammu University Vice Chancellor R D Sharma is in a soup , despite his clarification on the comments on Burhan Wani that the Hizb-ul-Mujahadeen commander should not have been killed by security forces in an encounter.
This clarification has not been found sufficient by his superiors. His comments that Burhan’s life should have been spared has been quoted extensively by Pakistani media that has twisted as vindication of their stand that Burhan was not killed in a genuine encounter. Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had called Burhan , a “ martyr” and “ young leader of Kashmir who was murdered by the Indian security forces.”
Sharma’s suggestion that Burhan should have been arrested, instead of killing him has added to the propaganda by Pakistan and militant outfits. Further it has embarrassed the security forces.
One policeman was injured grievously in firing by militants before the encounter started in Kokernag in south Kashmir on July 8 . This fact is not being told to public.
The Human Resources Ministry , according to sources, has taken a very serious note of it. It is contemplating an action . It is likely to take up the matter with his superiors in Jammu and Kashmir.
Sources said that if action can be taken against the Jawaharlal Nehru ( JNU) university can be taken for sympathizing with secessionists , why a vice chancellor should be exempted from any action for his pro-terrorist remarks .
In next few days, the Human Resources Ministry would come out with a plan as to what kind of action should be taken against Jammu University Vice Chancellor, the sources said.
