WHOA- See how many Kashmiri applied for 700 Police jobs- Will blow your mind.


Story got published in TOI

Four days after Lieutenant Ummer Fayaz was abducted and shot by Hizbul Mujahideen militants+ in Shopian district to serve as a warning to Kashmiri youths aspiring to join the security forces, about 2,000 boys and girls from the Valley lined up at Bakshi Stadium here on Saturday.

All of them had come for the physical endurance test (PET) and physical standard test (PST) for the post of sub-inspectors in J&K police.

Various terrorist groups have repeatedly warned Kashmiri youths against joining the security forces by issuing threatening videos from time to time.

However, youths from the Valley not only ignored these threats by lining up for posts in J&K police but they far outnumbered their counterparts from the Jammu region. A total of 67,218 candidates have applied for 698 posts of sub-inspector.

Of them, 35,722 are from Kashmir while 31,496 from the Jammu region.

Applicants take part in the physical endurance test in Srinagar

With over 6,000 Kashmiri girls turning up for physical tests for recruitment as police sub-inspectors, J&K DGP S P Vaid told TOI: “Dozens of Kashmiri girls broke all the shackles of a conservative society and participated in the recruitment drive.”

Nusrat Jan, a candidate from downtown Srinagar, said she wanted to help local women. “I have seen women facing very bad times due to militancy in Kashmir, which needs to be addressed,” she added.

Mohammad Rafiq Bhat, a science graduate from old Srinagar, said he was aware that a cop in the Valley had to live under a constant threat from the terrorists.

“But I am ready to face the menace of militancy. They (militants) are not on the right path and proper treatment is required to treat this disease,” he said.

Another aspirant, Rubeena Akthar of Srinagar, said she hoped that a job in J&K police would help her “deal with the vices that are ailing our society…in Kashmir”.

“I will be lucky if I get a job in the police. One commands respect in the society,” said aspirant Farzana.

The first phase of the physical endurance and standard tests started on Saturday with applicants from the Valley, a spokesman of the J&K police said. The exercise will take place in the other districts subsequently.

    Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your post seem to be running off the screen in Ie.
    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.
    The design and style look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon.
    Cheers

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s equally educative and entertaining, and let me tell you,
    you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is an issue that not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i’m very happy that I found this during my hunt for
    something concerning this.
