What courage it must have taken Lt. Ummer Fayyaz to join Indian Army hailing from the state of Jammu & Kashmir which is known to hate Indian Army and what faith he must be holding to return back to his village as an Army officer where they are always targeted.
He must have loved his people,his Kashmir along with his India and his Army!
And now he has gone! A young budding Army Officer Lieutenant Ummer Fayaz who just passed out from NDA with big dreams in his eyes and Josh in his heart to change the perception about Indian Army in the eyes of his own people misguided by Mujahideens, Separatists,Pseudo Liberals and who not! And he did it actually, he is not around anymore to see this but he has shown the world the real face of these terrorists who inspire young Kashmiri Muslims to fight the Jihad in the name of religion and lies about the torture that Indian Army does to Kashmiris!
He was a Kashmiri Muslim too, was suppose to turn good 23 this June and also pick up rank of a Captain and then head straight to the Young officers Course in September 2017. How wonderful these things would have been and how easily they looked possible?
He must have worked really really hard. Ran hundreds of kilometers,solved mathematical questions,learned the History of India from Gautam Buddha to Ashoka to Akbar just to sharpen his general knowledge skills or may be to clear the GD pi rounds just like any other defense aspirants in this country do. He showed that he also had this equal opportunity to lead men and command troops of his own country India and he made it! What bright officer he would be to hold the full faith of Indian Government and high recommendations of his seniors to be posted to his homelands with an arm like Rajputana Rifles.
And now this Shopian Hero Lt. Ummer Fayyaz is a martyr!
He was abducted from his maternal uncle’s house where he was gone to attend his cousin’s Wedding during late night hours. Then he was tortured inhumanly. His dead body was filled with broken bones,jaw,bleeding nose and everything barbaric that those monsters could come up with to teach him a lesson and everybody else who dare to chase their dreams and go against their wishes. Then they shot him dead and dumped his bullet riddled body to an orchard just like his father’s who is a small time apple farmer.
His dead body was mourned by his friends,family,his mother,his sister and who not? We all cried over such a great loss.
We keep on losing men at borders but this one? It was brutal and barbaric. A young handsome boy was killed to pursue his passion on his own lands by his own people. Some 4000 people and 250 of armed force personnel attended his funeral and wreath laying ceremony was performed for this beloved son whose dead body was carefully wrapped by a quilt. After all it was cold.
The General Officer Commanding in Chief of South Western Command Lt gen Abhay Krishna who is also the colonel of the Rajputana Rifles and other senior Army officers who are used to of not showing their emotion over lost men over and over again could not keep their emotions in check this one time and mourned the death of their promising young officer.
But that was the last they did it and they sweared openly to avenge his death.
Sources say the avenge has started and no one is getting spared and recently J&K police has also released the photographs of the three ‘wanted’ terrorists of Lashkar-e-Toiba and Hizbul Mujahideen involved in the killing of Lt. Ummer Fayaz in Shopian this Friday.
None will be spared little boy!
World might be silent
But our hearts are bleeding
We are the mighty ones
We don’t need the files
The death Orders are passed
Every inch of those 19 bullets
Will be avenged
Sleep peacefully our boy
You immortalised yourself, too soon!
Rest In Peace Boy!
