District Police gets hyperactive in getting after the covid-19 ruler breakers. The left SP Rajouri Sheem Nabi Qasba but to go in for getting on to a firmer grid!
This was a necessity because when the invisible death in the form of a miniscule invisible virus is moving about then one has to remain safe so that the others too are safe.
One stupid man’s folly can land up several others into trouble and I need not have to give examples regarding this because people of Rajori have seen them because they are vigorously active on the social media.
Yes relaxations have been given but that does not mean that the people go overboard, throw the covid protocols in gutters of Rajouri and move as if they are Godzilla’s on prowl. Many tried that in the past year plus a few months more and perished. Here the size does not matter because you may be huge and tough but once the virus enters you then there are two destinations, one is the ICU bed to lie with eyes closed on a ventilator or, well I do not want to talk much about that because everyone knows.
Obviously the Rajouri Police would not have sat idle when the instructions percolated from the top i.e. IG Jammu Mukesh Singh and DIG Rajouri-Poonch Range from Vivek Gupta that this nonsense would have to be stopped.
It was here that SP Rajouri Sheema Nabi Qaba, the SDPO, the SHO and the battery of officers moved in and started the drive against the people violating rules.
The idea was not to harass the people as many would be thinking but it was to deliver a strong message that if the rules and embargoes have been set for their safety then they better remain within them . In any case putting yourself in danger is nothing but profound stupidity!
The police have always pushed people to stay positive with so much negativity all around. Today also they are asking them to stay positive but not this way by tearing the instructions of the District magistrate into tatters. Obviously the police would intervene and that is what Rajouri Police did exactly!
Ignorance is killing poison. When people do not behave in these extremely delicately poised times, they are doomed to remain ignorant. If people do not get together and share views and exchange ideas, they remain unconscious and unaware. A world without dialogue is a universe of darkness. People in Rajouri should talk it out as to whether they are right or wrong. Most will say that they are!
Agreed that the family economy has gone down, agreed that the saving barometers of the households has come out, also agreed that a lot of backlog has to be made up of the losses after lockdowns but that does not mean putting yourself in danger and others in jeopardy. An individual’s mistake can ruin a family. It has happened in the past two months and there are several examples from Jammu and Kashmir itself. No one is stopping anyone from carrying on with your work, the authorities are telling people only to behave and follow the protocols laid down. I do not think that they are doing anything wrong.
The situation is sliding down as the graph of infections is coming down but that in no way means that virus is down and out. No doubt it will go. But till it does we have to remain within ourselves. The Corona conflict has rammed people into trenches. Invisible, lethal, viral weapons have replaced visible whistling bullets and thunderous bombs. As we don’t know who is calling the shots, it is difficult to tell how we can call a truce with imperceptible enemies who are attacking us by mutating. So just to remind the people that the danger was not over as yet Rajouri police launched an over drive in which they did the following because they were left with no options because the people were not listening!
There is a fine line between solidarity and stupidity. In solidarity and conformity you will remain within premises of law and in stupidity you will violate the same, which side you want to be on is entirely up to your commonsense. But what people were displaying was for sure making no sense at all.
198 first information reports (FIR’s) were lodged. This was the first step towards discipline during the pandemic to be revived again!
116 vehicles were seized. Why go for drives to relax. Home is the best to do so and mobile phones and technological appliances are the best for business deals if any to be settled. Let’s take a deep corona breath and take care of ourselves.
80 shops were sealed. This was a ridiculous idea on the part of the owners. They opened them up to earn and ultimately landed up in paying fines.
172 persons had to be arrested to make specimens out of them. This was a necessity, at least now they would behave themselves.
The cash recovered was to the tune of Rs. 5,48, 370/- If hard earned money has to be given as fine then do not blame the virus for the family economy and budgets going haywire. The fault is entirely and entirely of the people who faced the jarring music of the police.
A little help from the people can go a long way in tackling the coronavirus but that is if they behave and support the authorities. If they do the virus will go but if they misbehave and play with the rules they are staring at yet another disaster, I mean the third wave. So extend help to the administration and be your own superhero! This is the new normal but know this! We will have a better tomorrow at the end of this! I hope we’ll be fine if we listen to what is being said because it is for our benefit!
