Retired Major General SP Sinha has left Twitter shocked after he asked for “death in return for death, and rape in return for rape”.
The former Army officer was speaking on a live debate on Hindi news channel TV9 Bharatvarsh.
While deabating on the atrocities carried out against Kashmiri Pandits during their mass exodus from Kashmir in 1990, the Army officer made this insensitive comment.
Listen this Ex Army officer Major General SP Sinha.— Md Asif Khan آصِف (@imMAK02) November 17, 2019
He said "Balatkar ke badle Balatkar" (rape for rape) as a revenge for Kashmiri Pandit exodus.
He is openly supporting rape of Kashmiri women, such kind of filthy officers are protected under draconian Law like AFSPA. pic.twitter.com/GHaHFota1S
The audience, the moderator Sumaira Sheikh and other panelists strongly disapproved the ex-officer's comments.
Twitter users expressed their disappointment. Some users went on to say that the ex-officer's comments have defamed the army.
Major General S P Sinha has just defamed the Army.— Lt Col Sundeep Parija (Retd) (@sundeepparija) November 17, 2019
May I humbly request the @adgpi and @drajaykumar_ias to strip him of his Major General rank with immediate effect.
This vile man has just destroyed a hard won reputation of restraint and patience of our Army.
Shame on all those women who continued to sit there even after hearing such an atrocious statement.They should hv either demanded to throw tat creep out of the studio, or walked out themselves.— Dr Nazma parveen (@nazmaaman) November 17, 2019
He says this openly because he knows he'll get away with it just like Indian army officers who committed mass rapes in Kunan Poshpora and many similar rape cases in Kashmir got away with their crimes despite glaring evidence. They are protected under AFSPA. So he is confident.— Saad (@Saad59116123) November 17, 2019
@MajGen_SPsinha does not represent anybody except his own demented self. These debates are sham by fake intellectuals & hand picked by comedy channels like @TV9Bharatvarsh . @adgpi doesn’t teach this and definitely not representative of any army officer I have met & know!— Vivek Kumar Singh (@_vksingh_) November 17, 2019
@TV9Bharatvarsh why was this man not made to leave the show? Do you agree with him? Why you want viewers to hear a sick man?? Do you support his ideology? Any woman with self respect would have thrown him out? Shame on women anchors, viewers and panels. Why u didn't walkout??— hena fatima (@hena21fatima) November 17, 2019
