GUWAHATI: The Army has taken strong exception to a message doing the rounds on social media giving details of its officers from a particular community who have been deployed for security duties in the state.
“All ranks of the Indian Army are race, caste, creed and gender agnostic, fair to all and fear none. Officers and troops of the Indian Army are posted to all parts of the country as per the requirement of the organisation. It must also be noted that the numbers depicted on the list represent a minute fraction of the total number of officers that are posted in all formations and units in Manipur currently,” the Army said.
“Compounded with casting aspersions on their loyalty and integrity towards the nation, the message is aimed at maligning the very foundation of faith and ethos of officers of the Indian Army. The very officers being discredited have spent sleepless nights, gone without food and water, rescued thousands and have provided refuge to people beyond religion, caste or creed in Manipur,” Army asserted.
