The special award ceremony took place at the UN House in Juba.

The Indian police officers had served the UN mission in South Sudan for nearly a year and their duties included protecting displaced civilians, community policing and building local police skills.

“17 Indian peacekeepers have today been awarded @UN medals in recognition of their @UNPeacekeeping service to the people of #SouthSudan as UN Police officers,” UNMISS tweeted on Tuesday.

During the event, India’s ambassador to South Sudan SD Moorthy said, “We are all here in this country to see peace and stability.”

On his part, however, the head of UNMISS, David Shearer congratulated the Indian police officers for being awarded the medals and lauded the “long tradition” of Indian peacekeeping.

India is reportedly among the largest troop contributing countries in the world to UN peacekeeping missions. As of March 2019, there 2,337 Indian troops deployed with the mission in South Sudan.

    These Indian mercenaries must go back home, they are not wanted here in South Sudan. They can damn go and be peacekeepers in *Kashmir*. South Sudan is not their damn DR Congo. We have informed our losers who brought these mercenaries into our country to let us round up these vermin, kill them and throw them into the Nile and be done with them>>>

      These vermin were to be resettled here in our country. The evils in the US, the UK, their UN, their evil juus (so-called israel) and some otheir creeps in between thought that there would be *Indians, Pakistanis, Bangladeshis, Nepalese, Sri Lankans, Asians or evil juus (so-called israelis) here in South Sudan* like there are in ’Kenya, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Mozambique, Botswana, South Africa>>>

        or Namibia. Fellows. There are some people who are way too well ahead this cheap and dirty intrigues. South Sudan is not part of the so-called ANGLO-AMERICA empire, never has and will never ever will. Was the Indian god, Mr. Gandhi called the Bantuses of South Africa "Kaffirs"? Didn’t Mr. Idda Ami Dada kicked these vermin out of Uganda?>>>

          Can any South Sudanese go and be a citizen of India? They are the poorest than here in Africa. They even bully their women and have ’caste system---the untouchable people in India’. How can the these vermin come and be peacekeepers to people who are ’highly democratic and egalitarian like the South Sudanese people?’, it really doesn’t make sense fellows>>>

            I will repeat again and again, we informed our lowly informed elders not to ’renew the then United nations mission the Sudan (UNIMIS) to United nations mission in South Sudan (UNIMISS), because there was no need for it before our counry’s independence in 2011. But we were ’harshly rebuked’ by our lowly informed elders that we were just "young boys with some attitudes towards white people">>>
