The Jammu & Kashmir government has taken stern action by terminating four employees for their alleged involvement in anti-national and terror-related activities. The employees, identified as Dr. Nisar-ul Hassan, Abdul Majeed Bhat, Farooq Ahmad Mir, and Abdul Saleem Rather, were serving in various capacities across the government.
Dr. Nisar-ul Hassan, an Assistant Professor (Medicine) at SMHS hospital, was terminated for his alleged involvement in spreading anti-national sentiments among students and colleagues. Abdul Majeed Bhat, a constable in the J&K Police, was dismissed for his links to terror-related activities. Farooq Ahmad Mir, a teacher in the education department, was terminated for his alleged involvement in inciting youth towards violence and anti-national activities. Abdul Saleem Rather, a laboratory bearer in the higher education department, was dismissed for his connections with terror-affiliated individuals.
The terminations were carried out under Article 311(2)(c) of the Constitution of India, which empowers the government to dismiss employees without holding an inquiry in cases of conduct unbecoming of a government servant or conduct prejudicial to the security of the state.
The government’s action sends a strong message that it will not tolerate any form of anti-national activity or terror-related involvement among its employees. The terminations are expected to serve as a deterrent to others who may contemplate engaging in such activities.
