Former chief minister Omar Abdullah tweeted, "I understand the outrage the CRPF video generated. I'm also outraged that the video of the youth on the jeep won't generate the same anger."

A video clip showing a youth tied in front of an army jeep and used as a human shield in Central Kashmir’s Budgam district has gone viral on various social networking sites. The video clip shows a young man tied by ropes in front of the army jeep that is moving in some village of Central Kashmir’s Budgam district that went to by polls on Sunday and re-polls on Thursday. However, the clip was uploaded on the internet soon after services were restored in Kashmir on Thursday evening.

Army spokesman, Col Rajesh Kalia told The Indian Express that army is verifying the credentials of the video. In the clip, an army soldier could be heard saying, “Those who throw stones will meet the same fate.” The video shows the army jeep moving ahead of an army patrol, while some villagers could be overheard that the youth had been picked by the army.

Reacting to this, former chief minister Omar Abdullah tweeted, “I understand the outrage the CRPF video generated. I’m also outraged that the video of the youth on the jeep won’t generate the same anger.”

Tanvir Sadiq of the National Conference said this incident has taken place at Gundipora village in Beerwah and termed this incident shocking and shameful.

This comes days after a video clip showing youths assaulting CRPF jawans during bypoll to the Srinagar parliamentary constituency on April 9 went viral.

    The Officer who decided to tie a stone pelter in front of an Army Jeep, should be commended. Those, included Omar Abdulla and a decorated Veteran who criticised it, should realise the difficult cir stances in which the Army is operating in Kashmir. Stones are regularly pelted by stan sponsored and youth being paid for it and Army has to face them. Some Jawans were also heckled and beaten and though they had guns and other weapons they did not use them but acted with restraint. They could have fired in the air and then as the pelters ran out of fear, could have lobbed hand grenades which would have hurt the pelters. Instead they acted with restraint. In fact this should be used as a training tool by Training Centres for Army and other Security forces including Police, to keep trouble makers under check. This is better than firing on the youth or using pellets against them. The fact that no one threw stones at that Jeep is proof of its success !!!

        Farooq Abdullah,Omar Abdullah & Mehbooba are living in fool's world. They are biggest traitors of the nation. The stone pelters are financed & supported by Pak & have adopted the Palestinian tactics of stone throwing. They have also made human shields of ladies & children to fire on the security forces. Now when we have made a stone pelter a scape goat, why are all separatists, media channels & those who side by Pak crying???? Remember, J & K is a part of INDIA & earlier they realised it the better.

            I think we should have tied Farookh Abdullah to the jeep instead . What a ing guy he is. Once in power he did not have the balls to confront his own people now that he is out power he is talking from his backside . We should ask him to give up the security he had the balls to go out and meet the people he is so bothered for.

              ‪Can we not see that the main stream politicians, the likes of Farooq Abdullah lend support to these anti national elements. Well done Indian Army. Next time tie up Abdullah, Gilani and their likes on army vehicles. The w of India is behind you. ‬

                            The only inhuman people in the world are Islamic jihadists. Kashmir belonged to Hindus and will be with them in a few years time be rest ured. Sad to see no Nationlist fervour amongst your likes.

                                This is only called FOR TAT. Why only Soldiers should be subject to stones thrown on them. Let the stone pelters feel the pain.

                                    What if F A forefather used to be Shodder, and converted to Islam, then you must not proud of his ancestry, is't it. Hindu, cow, monkey, idol, cast, hater to dark brown color (Dalit), yeah you must proud of Hindu, and if same done is USA, as happens recently, then the same white man was Hindu.

                                    Best solution will be dialogue with all parties, keep out all terrorist army out of Kashmir, this was visible act of this army, not sure what else they are doing in the so called integral part.

                                            This is wrong because the Army has done its re tion much damage. The state does not lower itself to the same level as a terrorist. However an interesting thought is that Kashmiri Muslims will not stone their own however Indian soldiers or civilians are fair targets.Its time to remove 370. There can be no other solution

                                                If some one acts against India so brazenly while living on the doles from rest of India, this is a mild treatment.

                                                What is Omar Abdullah trying to prove? Ia there any similarity between the law enforcers and the law breakers? A sense of fear has to be there in the minds of ruffians and it is brought not by an individual, rather it is the uniform which instils the sense of fear. And when that uniformed is publicly insulted, there will be anarchy. The arrested youth, if proven guilty, be given a third degree right on the road so as to prove their authority.
