Recently, Kashmir’s 22 year old Lt. Umar Fayaz, was killed in cold blood by terrorists. He was on leave to attend a cousin’s marriage where terrorists picked him up and only his body was seen. Leaving behind his family including two sisters, Umar Fayaz graduated from the National Defense Academy in Pune after which he joined the 2 Rajputana Rifles regiment and was posted in Kashmir. Killing a Umar Fayaz will not stop many others from Kashmir or other places to serve honorably in the Indian Army in defending our country.
