MOREOVER ALL ARMY OFFICERS FROM CAPTAIN TO GENERAL ARE NOT MORE THAN 12TH PASS.I AM NOT SAYING WE DO NOT REQUIRE ARMY. IT IS ALSO AN INTERGRAL PART OF OUR COUNTRY BUT I WOULD REQUEST TO LEAVE THE LAW AND ORDER MAINTAINING POWER TO THE PROFESSIONALS ONLY. FURTHERMORE THE NEW REFORMS TAKING PLACE IN THE POLICE IN INDIA WILL SURELY IMPROVE IT FURTHER AND CLEAR ALL THE DRAWBACKS.

India is a huge democracy and we as Indians should respect the people who are administrating us. Lets be very honest, most of us who have voted for Army probably have had a quarrel with a policeman, and we as the so called intelectual indians have a tendency of believing that the grass on the other side is greener therefore, we have voted for army not realising the repurcussions that might arise when a massive group of higly untrained people who lack the common element of communication with local people and have no accountability start administrating us. Army is supposed to be at the border of our country and please for God sake let it do its designated work.Let me tell you people, its true that most of the civil servants of India are highly corroupt but let us not forget the fact that its because of those sophisticated brains that we are able to enjoy a safe environment in our country and depriving them of their own duties which I personal believe have been quite successful till now and is improving each day is nothing but a clear display of injustice.

It may be prudent to keep half the army operational and other half be used for security duties – in specific areas. The army officers should be deputed to police postings.The babus have successfully down graded the armed forces during the last 60 years and senior armed forces officers have contributed to the rest of rot. NO one is concerned about the uniformed soldiers & the junior officers. In US nobody, not even the President can utter a word against the forces; every babu, suitwala (poiliticians wear suits in US) have to go out of their way to show respect to soldies.In India babus, dhotiwalas & lungiwalas have systematically harmed the soldier’s prestige. Once Army begins to play a pro-active role; they will be more productive & will earn respect; and have more say in the country’s course.

The state police forces need to be modernised and they must be trained to use the modern sophisticated weapon. There is no point in discussing that armed forces should be deployed to maintain internal security. This may bring Pak like situation in this largest democratic country of the world

Even though most Kashmiris would side with Pakistan who is providing covert attacks via terrorists across the LoC. This army is the same one that provides protection against covert attacks when the same India-hating-Kashmiris take a bus across the LoC.I once read that after a Srinigar riot was over a Muslim man was buying milk. However, a policeman prevented him from doing so. The policeman told the man that if he wanted milk he can go and get it from the Pakistan that he supports and loves. So we provide Kashmir with infastructure (rail, roads and airport) and food and they spit on with venomous hatred. If J&K ever ends up with Pakistan, I for one will go to J&K and tear up every pice of road and rail. I will even destroy the airport. If they want Pakistan they can have Pakistan provide them with infastructure.I do not believe for one second that the Kashmiris want independence and be self sufficient. They will become proud beggers of a Begger State with Taliban Sharia. They certainly cannot live off tourism because that is seasonal.Could you imagine a Winter Olympics held in Kashmir.
