Lone in a series of tweet expressed sympathy with the bereaved families of Pulwama who lost their beloved today post gunfight clashes.
He said that the preparedness of security forces would in the Pulwama context be the ability to make the distinction between combatants and non combatants.
“Extremely disturbing news coming from Pulwama. The administration needs to seriously evaluate the costs of its operations. If there is even a remote chance of civilians getting killed during military operations it is better to call off such operations,” Lone tweeted.
“My heartfelt thoughts with the families of those who lost their lives in Pulwama. I just pray that Almighty takes us out of the perpetual state of mourning that we seem to have been sucked into. And also hope that administration abandons its Rambo mindset,” lone wrote of social networking site, twitter.
“The preparedness of security forces would in the Pulwama context be the ability to make the distinction between combatants and non combatants. If u end up killing 7 civilians in order to kill 3 militants. It is time for heads to roll. We can’t afford a state of impunity,” Lone tweeted. (KNS)
