Let me begin by saying that I mean no disrespect to Now ‘Late’ Inspector M C Sharma of Delhi Police neither have any doubt on the Slain Inspector’s integrity and commitment to his duty. I am glad that we still have officers like him in the force which is so much ‘maligned’.
My humble tributes to him.
I have not forgotten the old Latin adage: De mortuis nil nisi bonum (Nothing but good of the dead). YET, I am sad; if not angry with the ‘false imprudent Bravado’ of the slain Cop for not wearing the bullet proof jacket at the time of encounter, it might have saved his precious life. He had done that earlier too – not wearing Bullet proof- and was warned by Ajay Raj Sharma, Ex. Commissioner, Delhi Police.
This time; false imprudent bravado cost him: His life, Delhi Police: An astute and able officer and Nation: A committed Son.
What a criminal waste of such a human being! I am sure this is the sentiment his family and colleagues too will share with me.
We need officers like M C Sharma alive and shooting terrorists in head, not getting killed stupidly imprudently.
War on terror can not be won by getting ‘Killed’ and celebrated by the MSM (with every 10 minutes break!) as some breaking news (sic!). Wars are not won by sacrificing lives. Wars are won by taking enemies out and eliminated, for forever. I lament at any such life wasted.
May his soul rest in peace and others take a lesson after paying such a hefty price.
Sad as I am,
