Not reservation, not ‘Azadi’, this Jat and JNU graduate simply wanted his blanket

Haryana: He was a Jat, but reservation politics did not make sense to him and he was a graduate of Jawaharlal Nehru University and ‘Azadi’ speeches did not lure him.
His job was to serve the nation and before laying down his life fighting terrorists, 23-year-old Captain Pawan Kumar had something really important to say.

In his last Facebook post, he said, “Kisiko reservation chahiye to kisiki ko azadi bhai. Humein kutch nahin chahiye bhai. bas apni razai.” (Some want reservation and some want independence. I do not want anything, except my blanket.)

The 10 Para Special Forces Officer was leading his men from the front in a complicated operation as at least three terrorists had endered a seven-storey government building in Pampore in Jammu and KAshmir.

According to Lt General Satish Dua, the General Officer Commanding of the Army’s Srinagar based 15 Corps, “Captain Pawan Kumar of 10 Paras attained martyrdom leading his men from the front in a tricky deliberate operation at EDI government building with the possibility of some more civilians trapped not ruled out. Safety of civilians paramount who made the supreme sacrifice while fighting valiantly with the militants in the encounter.”

Captain Pawan Kumar’s FB profile speaks eloquently about his passion. A typical young man with insatiable love for bullets motorcycles and jeeps. He liked guns and cool logos.

Pawan was born on Army day on January 15, 1993. His father Rajbir Singh’s message was simple – “I had only one child and I gave him to the Army, to the nation. No father can be prouder.”
