In the first such disclosure, Chief of Defence Staff General Bipin Rawat on Thursday, 16 January, said de-radicalisation camps are operating in the country as it was necessary to isolate people who are completely radicalised.
In an address at the Raisina Dialogue, Gen Rawat, delving into the situation in Kashmir, said girls and boys as young as 10 and 12 years are being radicalised in the Valley which he described as a matter of concern.
“These people can still be isolated from radicalisation in a gradual way. But there are people who have been completely radicalised. These people need to be taken out separately, possibly taken to some de-radicalisation camps.” General Bipin Rawat, Chief of Defence Staff
“We have got de-radicalisation camps going on in our country,” the Chief of Defence Staff said.
He said that Pakistan too has de-radicalisation camps.
