In April 2017, Major Gogoi of the Indian Army tied Farooq Ahmad Dar to the front of his Jeep and used him as a human shield.
A few weeks later, Major Gogoi was awarded a medal for the act of ‘bravery’.
Glorifying war crimes and condoning violence against Kashmir has become a norm in the Indian society nowadays but this new trend shall put everything to shame.
The war crimes inflicted upon Kashmiris shall now be worn by common citizens with pride and honour like those awards for gallantry.
A Mumbai based T-Shirt company by the name of ‘T-Shirt Bhaiya’ has created a new design depicting Major Gogoi’s Jeep and Farooq tied to its front.

The text below the picture on the T-shirt reads,
Indian Army, saving your ass, whether you like it or not.
The T-Shirts are available in different sizes and colours and one of them has already been ‘SOLD OUT’.
So far, the majority of the buyers are totally in love with such glorification of a war crime.
wow, its such a great message, will order one immediately https://t.co/XaJrfFibQa

We are loving it.
Some people just born to criticise

Only a handful of people were actually outraged at this.
How about enthusiastic buyers get customised tees with their faces on it & get free wet pants with the deal ? It's war crime glorified.
