Wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt on Sunday came out in support of the security forces in Jammu and Kashmir, calling for them to be given a “free hand” to control the situation. “Security forces should be given free hand to deal with such elements, otherwise it won’t stop,” Dutt told news agency ANI. Earlier, cricketers Virendra Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir had expressed similar views.

Reacting to the video which showed a Kashmiri youth abusing a jawan, Yogeshwar told ANI: “What has happened is extremely wrong. Our CRPF jawan was insulted. He was brutally attacked and his helmet had also rolled down the road. It is extremely insulting for India to see a youth thrashing our jawan.” The news report from ANI went on to add: “This is very saddening. Anyone who goes against the country and misbehaves with our soldiers should be shot a dead.”

Earlier, former cricketer Virender Sehwag took to social media and showed his support to the Jawans saying, “This is Unacceptable ! Cant do this to our CRPF jawaans .This rot has to stop. Badtameezi ki hadd hai.”

Kolkata Knight Riders skipper Gautam Gambhir had also tweeted, “For every slap on my army’s Jawan lay down at least a 100 jihadi lives (sic)”.

In his second tweet, Gambhir reminded what the Indian flag stands for and stated, “Anti-Indians hav forgotten dat our flag also stands 4: saffron – fire of our anger, white – shroud for jihadis, green – hatred 4 terror,” he wrote in his tweet.

    It is why India will lose Kashmir very soon people are no longer scared of the bullet & Pellet. Despite 70 years of opportunity, India has not earned Kashmir trust, The Indian state survives in Kashmir only by using the might of its army, and the force of its guns. India had turned the valley into a part-garrison, part-open air prison. by adopting Inhuman government policy's in Kashmir since from 1947.
