Police Official Hurls Shoe At Kashmir CM

Posted by Admin on August 16, 2010

By Fayaz Wani

Srinagar, Aug 15: In a major embarrassment to pro-Indian government in Indian administered Kashmir, a police officer hurled a shoe towards chief minister of the region Omar Abdullah during a function of India’s Independence Day on Sunday.

The August 15 (India’s Independence Day) function was being held at Bakshi Stadium in Srinagar, the summer capital of the Indian administered Kashmir, under tight security cover. As 41-year-old chief minister of the region, Omar Abdullah unfurled the Indian flag, a police officer sitting in the VIP enclosure stood up and raised pro-freedom slogans.

The police officer hurled a brown colour shoe towards the chief minister. The show, however, missed chief minister’s cap by a whisker. The police officer also hurled a black flag towards the chief minister.

The police official identified as Abdul Ahad Jan was quickly overpowered by policemen and bodyguards of the chief minister and shifted him to an unknown destination, where he is being questioned.

Embarrassed by the shoe-throwing incident, chief minister later addressing the VIPs said, "Hurling a shoe is better than hurling a stone".

The police officer was reportedly angry over the killing of 58 Kashmiri youth in police and paramilitary soldiers firing in Kashmir since June 11 this year.

A police spokesman while referring to the incident said the police officer (Abdul Ahad Jan) was a suspended Head Constable. "He is reportedly mentally unsound and facing charges in a criminal case under FIR No:123 dated: May 21st 2010. He was arrested by Police in this case and later bailed out by the Court. He was suspended for his criminal activities on May 22, 2010," he said.

If the police version is to be believed, then it is unclear how a suspended police official could get into the VIP gallery, a place where access is granted only on the basis of special passes issued by the security agencies.

Meanwhile, hundreds of people had taken to roads at Bandipora in North Kashmir, where from the police officer hailed, and taken processions in support of shoe-throwing police official.

    They had to let the guy go. The official “forgave” the on suspension officer who actually wants the regime out…

    And many, many people are saluting him for what he has done.

    Meanwhile according to Associated Press just the other day:

    killed in land protests in northern India

    AP – Monday, August 16

    LUCKNOW, India – Three people, including a police officer, were killed by gunfire when protesting farmers turned violent over inadequate compensation from the government for land bought to build a highway in northern India, an official said Sunday.

    Angry farmers fired weapons at police late Saturday killing the officer, while a farmer died in the subsequent exchange of fire in Jikarpur village in Uttar Pradesh state, said official Shaskank S. Singh.

    A second farmer succumbed Sunday to wounds sustained in the shooting, Singh told reporters Sunday. Nine farmers were wounded in the violence.

    Local politician Anil Dubey said at least five farmers were killed in the shootout.

    The protesting farmers, who blocked the highway near Jikarpur, hurled stones and set fire to four police vehicles when officers reached the village, he said.

    The farmers have demonstrated for nearly three weeks demanding higher compensation for land bought by the government to build an ambitious $2 billion, six-lane highway linking Agra, the home of the Taj Mahal, with the Indian capital New Delhi.

    Be it the Golf Players stealing the land of Mohawk Nation’s parents graves and what have you, or in Amazon, or in particular in India with their secret memos, it’s right to rebel to the end. And for the sake of the sayer, in an old leftist paper they used to write Land belongs to the one who works upon it and, it was next to photos of Marx and Lenin. It took me years to know it was a Mexican revolutionary’s, Zapata’s saying. And when in comes to the land where people toil on it and, live on it and, sometimes if the monson doesn’t work right and seeds are supplied on a loan, i don’t say political power comes from the barrel of the gun stuff. The peasant better not commit suicide.

    It is right to rebel and do whatever needed with that damn loan shark moneylender.
