No Govt Jobs for Families of Terrorists, Stone Pelters: Amit Shah

 

“In Kashmir, we have taken a decision that if someone joins a militant organisation, their family members will not get any government job,”.

 

He said some human rights activists went to the Supreme Court against the decision but, at the end, the government prevailed.

 

The home minister, however, said the government will make an exception in case someone from a family comes forward and informs the authorities that his or her close relative has joined a militant outfit.

 

Such families will be given relief, he said.

 

Earlier, funeral processions used to be taken out in Kashmir after a miltant was killed, Shah said.

 

“We have stopped this trend. We have ensured that the militant is buried with all religious formalities but in an isolated place,” he said. The home minister said when a miltant is surrounded by the security forces, he is first given a chance to surrender.
