Shri Tika Lal Taploo as I Know Him
D.P. Koul (Gen Sec ASKPC)
Taploo Ji was true Swyam Sewak, dauntless leader and able
advocate. He had all the qualities of Swyam Sewak. He has
never disobeyed the Aadesh (order) of even a small Adhikary
even when he was one of the senior leaders of the sate.
was so brave and fearless. Once he told the SP Police that
you are unnecessarily harassing the true citizens of India
in the valley for lame excuses. In the month of July, 89 he
was going round the city along with me and told at many places
to Muslims that Kashmir will remain an integral part of India
till we are here and alive. On one dead to say anything though
the conditions were detecting. He had openly challenged the
ministers of State on many occasions and never cared about
his safety of life.
was an able advocate. He had a neck of dealing the cases particularly
in getting stay orders from the High Court. As a legal advisor
of BMS in the valley I get stay order for 10 lasses from him
and same are still there. He won reputation in many departments
particularly in P & T.
Shri Amar Nath Vaishnavi was elected as the president ASCPC
(SDYS) some elements having allegiance with other ideologies
challenged the election in the court. It was Shri tika Lal
who got the case dismissed by the dauntless speech and arguments
in the court.
the month of Sept 1989, when the conditions deteriorated in
the valley I was daily seeking his advice in dealing the situation.
On 10th Sept 1989 he told me that some abnormal thing is happening
in the valley and advised me to apprize every body about the
same. He also added that we must move to Delhi fro the same.
On 13th Sept 1989i was with him up to 8 PM in the evening
and advised me to educate the people about the action of the
anti national elements and further advised me to be very vigilant
and careful as you are mourning late in night to down town
it is in the morning of 14th Sept 1989 when I was shocked
of the tragic news.
