Junior Commissioned Officer (JCO), Naib Subedar Paramjit Singh, whose body was mutilated Monday by the Pakistan Army in the Krishna Ghati area of Jammu and Kashmir, belongs to the same battalion of the Sikh regiment whose jawans had released a song on social media some months ago from their field location, challenging Pakistan.

The video, which went viral on social media platforms in November 2016, showed five jawans of the Sikh regiment at their post along the Line of Control dressed in battle fatigues and one of them singing the song in Punjabi while it was recorded on a mobile phone. The name of the battalion was also mentioned in one of the stanzas of the song.

Speaking to The Indian Express over phone from Gurgaon, Lt Gen S S Chahal (retd), former Director-General, Military Operations (DGMO), and a former Commanding Officer of the same battalion, said he had also seen the video on Facebook and that the unit was indeed a “fine one with lot of enthusiasm.” “It is one of young battalions of the Sikh regiment and was raised in 1980. I commanded it during Operation Blue Star in Chandigarh and later in the North East. I am sure that the Army and the battalion will avenge this act of Pakistan Army,” he said.

Lt Gen Raj Kadyan (retd), former Deputy Chief of Army Staff, said it was a “serious violation.” He said it was now clear that the Pakistanis came well inside the Line of Control and this is not just a ceasefire violation but also a violation of territorial integrity.

“It is only when a hefty price is extracted from them (Pakistan Army) that they will understand the repercussions. The Indian Army has the means and methods and can inflict a heavy price on the Pakistan Army,” said Lt Gen Kadyan. Former General Officer Commanding-in-Chief, Northern Command, Lt Gen B S Jaswal, said the aim of the Pakistan Army was to provoke the Indian Army to retaliate during the visit of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan so that the Kashmir issue could get international traction.

      Photographs of the mutilated soldiers should be widely circulated and sent heads of states so that they know what stan is about.

                Is this article a joke on the batallion? Is this our press? I guess even stan press would have been more sensitive.

                    This is a sad day Sikhs should not over react to this incident and play in the hands of indra goverment. This is the Same counary who DENIED them justice for 1984 Sikh genocide, and gave thEm WIDOW colony in the heart of independent india Delhi. A gift for all their sacrifices. The weak people of this country are only good at giving their girls to produce more TAIMUR proudly. As long india keep promoting face of i on Indian currency and not the real hero BAGHAT SINGH this nation will slowly parish. STOP PROMOTING WEAK BRITISH AGENT i TO KIDS.

                          It is most unfortunate that Indian Armed Forces have become cannon fodder due to wrong political decisions from the days of our Independence. First during 1947, our Armed Forces were not given permission to recapture Pok. Secondly, during 1965 India vacated the areas occupied by the Armed Forces. Thirdly, during 1971 war India instead of handing over the stani PoW to the Bangladesh we maintained for more than one-year. Fourthly, Indian vacated the areas occupied in the western sector but never bargained for a permanent solution. Lastly, Government never gave adequate protection to Kashmiri Pundits when they were continouly hounded, driven out and killed. Enough is enough and and Indian Armed Forces should be given full liberty to act independently and the Kashmir problem is solved once for all.

                            Time to show some action Mr Jaitley (flop FM) and Mr Modi( who does not do anything which does not have publicity for him). Mr Parikar was a complete failure as defence minister hence he was demoted toa CM of small state, with one surgical strike which the entire BJP took credit for, there has been more than 10-12 counter strikes by militants directly on indian army, so what is mr FEKU and jaitley doing, why don't they give a free hand to army

                              Well! what is good about India, is that it never tries to cover up and even if their people are arrested or mutilated like this one, it doesn't try to cover up, in order not to feel embarrsed like porkistan.... What needs to be done now if action without any publicity ... otherwise again people like Kujriwal will start asking for proof ... The W of INDIA salutes the brave soldiers ...

                                    Trying to find his badge of honor, his tail, may have been snatched by the nasty stani s, for the fun of it. hinduism is not a faith but a derogatory term used by the Persians to insult the natives of the subcontinent, check it out, it does not exist in hindu literature, but based on prefix hin, meaning negative, Hun great, Han, to be in greatness, and hind negative to both of them, and a hindu, noun in negativity to the truth, and hinduism way of the negativity to the truth. Original name of the faith is called, Sanatan Dherma, based on sane, to be wise, or wisdom, Noe stop being hindus idio ts, and call as your faith really is, Sanatan Dehrma, path of the wisdom. so it is time to thank, not curse, hindus, ignorant by birth. A gift from a Muslim.

                                      "Hindu" is an Arabic word, in use since Medieval period in geographical and cultural sense... And, the early British colonial historians first use the term "Sanatan Dharma"... You will not find these two terms anywhere in our Brahminic ancient text... The afix with dharma was always 'Brahmana' or 'Kshatriya' (Brahman Dharma, Kshatriya Dharma, eetc.) Hindu Dharma is a recent term and more recent is the political term "Hindutva"...

                                          As much as you do not know your islam you do not know what true hinduism is. First read your quran properly to interpret the correct meaning. The true beauty of a religion is to create a sense of peace in its followers and irrespective of time and efforts to stand by as a pillar of support and encomp all those, even who hate it. And I am proud that hinduism does it. If Hindu was a word given by muslims then so be it, despite of it it is showing the way to even muslims around. Even our mathematics was robbed by your clan of murderers ages ago. And like every thing else you claim yours that which belongs to others. Islam is the only religion in this world which prospers on inbreeding and force rather than logic and relevance. Otherwise we would not be seeing so many blind Islamorons ready to shed blood and kill for propagating Islam. Deep down I know you are afraid of hinduism, otherwise there would be no hatred...

                                            And when I talk of Hinduism, it is that which is followed as philosophy and not as a religion. And it is but obvious that you moron does not know the difference as you are obviously a muslim and it is of no use making sense to people like you. Laaton ke bhoot baatons se nahin maante.

                                              To describe islam is simple, just recall the recent new of a muslim lady to a muslim sheikh in saudi arabia, by her own muslim kith and kin and her muslim daughter blames the police... this is islam. I spit on you, your islam and your moron prophet who made such a gross mistake in the name of humankind.
