In response to a viral message circulating on social media, the Indian Army has issued a statement emphasizing that officers are not chosen based on race, caste, creed, or gender. The message in question allegedly provided details of officers from a specific community performing internal security duties in Manipur, a violence-affected region. The Indian Army strongly condemns this message, which undermines the faith and ethos of its officers and casts doubts on their loyalty towards the nation.
Maligning the Foundation of Faith and Ethos
The Indian Army statement highlights the malicious intent behind casting aspersions on the loyalty of its officers, as it aims to malign the very foundation of their faith and ethos. The officers being discredited have dedicated themselves tirelessly, sacrificing sleep, food, and water to rescue and provide refuge to thousands of people in Manipur, irrespective of their religion, caste, or creed.
Equality for All Ranks
The Indian Army asserts that it is committed to equality and fairness, and all ranks within its organization are race, caste, creed, and gender agnostic. Officers and troops are deployed to different parts of the country based on organizational requirements. It is important to note that the numbers mentioned in the viral list represent only a minute fraction of the total officers posted in Manipur across various formations and units. The Indian Army firmly rejects this hideous message, emphasizing that it will not let regional biases interfere with its functioning.
Judicial Probe and Peace Committee
In related news, Union Home Minister Amit Shah has announced the upcoming establishment of a judicial probe led by a retired high court chief justice to investigate the clashes that occurred in Manipur. This step aims to address the ongoing crisis in the state. Additionally, a peace committee, comprising representatives from all political parties, the Kuki and Meitei communities, and social organizations, will be formed under the guidance of Manipur Governor Anusuiya Uikey. Dialogue is seen as the primary solution to resolving the situation in Manipur.
