Can we call stone pelters as "civilians"?
This petition had 7 supporters
We are seeing and hearing a lot about stone pelters in J&K. Should we treat them as common civilians? "Civilian" is one who behaves in a civil manner. In case of concerns, such a person approaches the Governmental machinery and seeks redressal. Or it is taken up at media or other forums for wider publicity so that the powers-that-be wakes up and listens, resulting in a process of dialogue and resolution.
The word "civil" means relating to ordinary citizens, as distinguished from military/police/district authorities. More importantly, it is essential that traits of courtesy, politeness and good manners need to be displayed. The most important quality of a "civilian" is to display respect to the military/police/district authorities.
The question, therefore, that confronts me is whether the stone pelters are truly civilians or persons who act against and to the detriment of civilians by being anti-establishment?
If you are in agreement with me, vote for naming such people as "anti-peace elements" and definitely not civilians.
