The recent image of a young Kashmiri man tied to an Army jeep as a human shield was heartbreaking to see. This is not the Army I know.
I am an Indian Army veteran having served in the Special Forces. I have been in combat and have been decorated for gallantry.
That image is contrary to what the Indian Army personifies. The Indian Army is a fine institution to which I owe my foundation to.
Countless cheer leaders and trolls have taken to twitter to insult and abuse military veterans who have objected to the way the Kashmiri man was treated.
One of India's highly regarded retired military generals, Lt Gen HS Panag was humiliated on twitter for having responded to this human rights violation in Kashmir.
