Former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah and MLA Beerwah Omar Abdullah on Friday termed as shocking the tying of a young man in front of an army jeep as a human shield in Gundipora village of Beerwah area of Central Kashmir's Budgam district.
Omar, who is also MLA Beerwah, posted the photographs and a video of the incident on his Twitter account, and called for an "urgent inquiry".
"This young man was TIED to the front of an army jeep to make sure no stones were thrown at the jeep? This is just so shocking!!!! #Kashmir", tweeted Omar.
"Here's the video as well. A warning can be heard saying stone pelters will meet this fate. This requires an urgent inquiry & follow up NOW!!"
Responding to a tweet from Tavleen Singh who asked him to "also tweet the video of armed CRPF jawans not responding violently despite abuse from Kashmiri boys", Omar wrote: "You are going to use that video (youth showing CRPF men heckling) to justify this action. So we should expect no better from the army than from stone pelters?"
Responding to the "outrage" among India over the "CRPF video", Omar said: "I understand the outrage the CRPF video generated. I'm also outraged that the video of the youth on the jeep won't generate the same anger."
"Let's see channels going ballistic &having discussions with outraged panelists now. Probably not since "Kashmir is ours" hell with Kashmiris."
