Bhopal: Praising Mohammad Ajmal Kasab, the lone surviving alleged Pakistani terrorist of 26/11 attack on Taj Hotel in Mumbai, for his shooting precision has proved dear for the Madhya Pradesh Inspector General (IG), of Police (Special Forces) Rajendra Kumar.


Kumar was removed from his post by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), ruled Madhya Pradesh state government on Wednesday following his Tuesday comment that allegedly praised 26/11 accused terrorist Ajmal Kasab.


Addressing a police training camp in Indore on Tuesday, Kumar had reportedly cited the example of Kasab as a product of good training.


"He just studied till class eight and had just one year training. With this he could operate weapons and gadgets and GPS devices. He could do this because he had passion and he trained very well," he said.


Kumar said Kasab could do this because he had passion and he trained very well. He could operate technology well because he trained himself well.


“How could he do it? He had passion,” the 1975 batch IPS officer had told his audience in Indore while inaugurating a three-day shooting competition meant for cops. “Why can’t we develop such passion?” he asked.


“He could do it but we cannot,” said Kumar as he stressed the point that the difference in the Pakistani terrorist's training and that of the cops was “jazba” (passion). He told the cops that they were more educated and were expected to do better (than Kasab). 


When contacted Kumar reacting to the state government's move moaned his example has been taken out of context.


“I never praised Kasab in my address. It was a motivational speech and my main thrust was that if a poorly educated man like Kasab can do this then why can’t we. My only aim was to motivate policemen in the area of shooting so that they can give a befitting reply to the terrorists," Kumar explained.


“I also gave an example of Sachin Tendulkar, about how he repeatedly watches the recording of his dismissals to learn from them, but only the Kasab part is being highlighted,” Kumar lamented.


He said he used the examples of these men to underline the need for policemen to be very good at their job.


"My point was that we should take better training because ultimately we have to face this type of terrorist situation (26/11) in future. Unless we are very well trained, we cannot deal with them," he reportedly added.


Meanwhile, the Congress was not impressed by Kumar’s praise for the terrorist and had asked the BJP government to punish the IPS officer.
