War Ends When One Accepts Defeat, DGP On Kashmir Militancy



Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir's Director General of Police (DGP) RR Swain underlined today that the battle against militancy in the Jammu and Kashmir is far from over, asserting that true cessation of war occurs only when one side acknowledges defeat.

Speaking at a function held at Gurdwara Chattipadshahi in Srinagar's Rainwari, the DGP shared insights on the continued fight against militancy in J&K.

"War ends only when one side accepts defeat and acknowledges that bloodshed is not going to yield any result. So our fight against militancy will continue despite bearing some losses at times," stated DGP Swain during an interaction with reporters.

He categorically stated that there is no question of the police stepping back from the ongoing struggle. "Peechay hatnay ka sawaal he nahi..." he affirmed.

Marking the occasion of Gurupurab, which commemorates the birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Devji, the founder of Sikhism, DGP Swain paid rich tributes to the revered spiritual leader.

He stressed the enduring relevance of Guru Nanak Devji's teachings and their universal applicability in today's context.

“Guru Nanak Devji’s teachings are very much relevant today. He has preached equality and no difference between poor and rich. Irrespective of caste, colour, and creed, Guruji’s teachings can enlighten any soul even today. On this occasion, I extend my wishes to the Sikh community of J&K,” expressed the DGP.

Additionally, DGP Swain took the opportunity to convey the police force's commitment to serving the people, renewing their pledge on this sacred occasion.

He accentuated the principles of equality, underscoring Guru Nanak Devji's teachings that transcend societal divisions.
