While taking a stand against the stone-pelters and mob attacks on army personnel in J&K, army personnel kids have written to National Human Rights Commission and filed a petition to protect army personnel's human rights. 

The letter noted that the FIRs registered against the stone pelters and violence perpetrators have been withdrawn upon the direction of the State government. 

All it said was "As young Indians and citizens of this great country, especially as children of army personnel, we are concerned about the state of affairs of the troops serving in the disturbed areas and we are compelled to approach the Hon'ble Commission to seek intervention in the matter and initiate appropriate inquiry in the incidents of violations of human rights of the members of the armed forces," read the official letter. 

The letter also stated that other countries "would never accept such indignities rained upon their armed forces," and laid out in detail, punishment that is meted out to perpetrators in other countries. 

"Being concerned for the safety of soldiers and officers of the Indian army, deployed in counter-insurgency areas in J&K and other states, we wish to draw your attention to the innumerable and frequent instances of violations of human rights of the army personnel," read the letter.
