क्या शहादत की आड़ में सेना की जवाबदेही तय नहीं होगी?

नैय्यर इमाम सिद्दीक़ी

18 सितम्बर 2016 को उत्तरी कश्मीर के 'उड़ी' में भारतीय सेना के एक कैम्प पर हुई आतंकी घटना पिछले डेढ़ दशक में सेना पर हुई सबसे बड़ी आतंकी कार्रवाई है, जिसमें 18 सैनिक शहीद हुए. इससे पहले कश्मीर के कालूचक में 14 मई 2002 को हुए आतंकी हमले में सेना के 22 जवान शहीद हुए थे. सेना पर हुए इन दोनों बड़े हमलों के वक़्त केंद्र में NDA की सरकार रही है, जिसका रुख यूं तो आतंकवाद को लेकर तो 'बहुत कठोर' है मगर हमले की कड़ी निंदा करने, पाकिस्तान पर आरोप लगाने और उसे सबूत सौंपने के अलावा इस सरकार ने कुछ ख़ास नहीं किया है.
