Amit Shah: “India is now giving an appropriate response”; Eye on Pakistan, Amit Shah remembers the 2016 surgical strikes | India news

NEW DELHI (Reuters) – Union Home Minister Amit Shah said on Thursday that India was now giving an adequate response to the perpetrators of cross-border violence, as he recalled the surgical strikes in 2016 when armed forces struck deep into Pakistani territory.
Speaking after the groundbreaking of the National Forensic Sciences University (NFSU) in Goa, Shah said that with such a decisive measure as the surgical strike, India has sent a strong message to the whole world that no one can interfere in its affairs. the border.
In an excavation of the previous UPA government, the home minister said for many years, terrorists across the border had been infiltrating India and causing unrest, but Delhi had done nothing.
“But when the terrorists carried out the attack in J&K (Uri) in 2016, India gave a proper response in the form of surgical strikes for the first time ever,” he said.
In an apparent reference to Pakistan, Shah said, “There was a time when only conversations took place, but now India is responding in the same language they understand.”
On September 29, 2016, the Indian Army carried out surgical strikes on seven terrorist launch pads across the Line of Control (LoC) in response to an attack on its base in Uri earlier that month. The army said its special forces had inflicted “significant losses” on the terrorists who were waiting there to cross into Indian territory.
Shah’s comments also come against the backdrop of a series of killings of civilians that took place in Jammu and Kashmir in the wake of renewed terrorist activities.
The security services said that the Pakistan-based terrorist group Lashkar-e-Taiba is responsible for the attacks and is carrying them out through its shadow group called the Resistance Front (TRF).
