Army doesn't want others to wear fatigues

I WONDER : THIS MENACE WAS STARTED BY ARMY ITSELF IN NORTHEN COMMAND (AROUND 2000-2001).... THIS IS A NEW ISSUE, BUT WHAT ABOUT 40 YR OLD ISSUE WHEN ARMY HAD ASKED MHA TO CHANGE POLICE BADGES AND MHA REPLIED SAYING THAT THE BADGES R DIFFERENT SINCE ARMY WEARS BRASS AND POLICE WEARS SILVER. BUT NOWADAYS HAS ANYBODY NOTICED  UTTAR PRADESH POLICE.... THEY ALL WEAR BRASS..... WATCHOUT GENS.....!!!! 
 
Mumbai: The Indian Army uniform is getting too 'uniform'. The Border Security Force personnel are wearing a similar fatigue, complain army officials. Private security agencies and owners of factories, restaurants, farm houses, big shops, malls and plush colonies too are draping their guards in army uniform.

It has given the terrorists chance to masquerade in army uniform. The October 10 strike by Taliban gunmen at the Pakistan army headquarters in Rawalpindi brought back memories of the 2002 Swaminarayan Temple attack in Gandhinagar. More than 50 civilians were killed when Kashmiri separatists, dressed like National Security Guard commandos, fired indiscriminately inside the temple.

There had been other similar massacres -- the attack on Amarnath pilgrims; at Raghunath temple in Jammu. Dressed in army uniforms, the terrorists found it easier to kill.
The Indian Army has renewed its demand for a law barring everyone else from donning its combat uniform. "If a civilian can purchase an army uniform from a garment store, so can terrorists," said a senior army official.

To bar access to its uniform, the Army has suggested that only authorised stores and tailors, located at military cantontments, be allowed to sell the uniform. And that too, on confirmation that the buyer was an armyman.

There is also a demand for unauthorised use of the uniform being made a cognisable and non-bailable offence, with mandatory and automatic punishment.
