With the body of an Indian Army soldier being brutally mutilated by Pakistani terrorists in an encounter in Jammu and Kashmir, the Centre on Saturday assured that the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) will take cognisance of this development, while adding that nothing could be more atrocious than this disturbing development.

“Nothing can be more atrocious than this. The human rights of soldiers should enjoy precedence over the human rights of anybody else. The longer Pakistan continues to be in denial mode the more it harms itself. We are confident that our defence forces and our government is capable of responding to any kind of threat on the borders and internally,” Minister of State (MoS) Jitendra Singh said.

Speaking to ANI here, the Union Minister stated that the barbaric killing of the army jawan is an eye opener for all those who keep raising the bogey of human rights, especially in Kashmir and added that the MEA and the Defence Ministry will take cognisance of the sequence of events.

“The entire nation is angered with this development. The menace of terrorism, which has been unleashed on the soil of Pakistan is going to sooner or later devour and consume the perpetrators itself,” Singh said.

Stressing that these are ‘acts of cowardice’ which are happening at a time of desperation on the part of Pakistan, Singh further said that the positive side of this is that the people living on the borders are on a high morale and are more concerned with thwarting the designs of the enemy, rather than be concerned about their own safety.

The Indian Army on Friday promised retribution after a jawan was mutilated by a terrorist in an encounter near the Line of Control in Macchil sector of Kupwara district of Jammu and Kashmir.

The terrorists mutilated the jawan’s body, apparently beheading him, before fleeing back into Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir under the cover of firing provided by the Pakistan Army.

“One militant was also killed in the gun-battle. But the despicable act of mutilating the jawan’s body reflects the barbarism pervading in official and unofficial organisations in Pakistan,” said the Army spokesperson in Srinagar.

“The terrorists managed to escape due to the covering fire provided to them from the Pakistan Army posts. The incident will be responded to appropriately,” he added. The soldier was identified as Manjeet Singh of 17 Sikh Light Infantry.

Kindly take revenge and forget about indian ethics. Forget about international retion for once and for all. Please give us one thing and our one wish take revenge. Kill atleast 1000 terrorists and more than 500 soldiers of enemy. Show that what is mutilation and avenge the maximum damage what they cannot bear. Forget what UN will say, OIC will say, what world will say. Forget that because they don't say now. So just show the enemy the brutality and fill there rivers with the blood of the terrorists so that they people of that country can understand what they are doing. Give such a reply once for all so that they understand what will be the result of being a terrorist.

    Request to the Center is that please don't wish diwali as we can understand it thanks for that and same to you. But take the revenge of our soldiers death. Give enemy the 1000 cuts and minimum 1000 terrorists and more than 500 soldiers dead from enemy land. This will be the greatest diwali gift to the nation. Show the terrorists and there handlers the real mutilation with the maximum damage to them which is unberable. Show to them what will be the effect of being a terrorists. For once and for all forget what world, UN, will say. They will never speek as they are not speaking now. Hence just take the revenge and brutal revenge.
