Following India’s strong hit back at Pakistan by surgical strikes across the LoC, reports were pouring in that terrorist major Jaish-e-Muhammed has been planning an attack on India. The strikes that evoked Pakistan’s fury has apparently fuelled JeM and they might attack the Parliament.
According to a report in TOI, India’s surgical strikes have shaken Pakistan’s ISI to the extent that it has asked JeM to avenge the strikes. The report suggested that repeating a 2001 attack, the JeM chief Maulana Masood Azhar is targeting the Parliament yet again. The 2001 attack on Parliament was led by Hafiz Saeed. While this has put India’s security mechanisms to work, BJP today gave their reaction to the same.
BJP MP RK Singh today said that after parliament attack, we had mobilised troops but did not act. He also said that attacking Pakistan at that time should have been an apt reply. ‘We should have attacked Pakistan as it was an act of war,’ Singh said.
On the recent reports that the ISI might have asked JeM to carry on the attacks, he added ‘Just want to convey to them that this will be crossing of ‘Red line’.
With attack on Army base in Uri, Pakistan crossed the red line of patience and India resorted to the surgical strikes. Though the Intelligence agencies are on it, the other suspected target points include Delhi Secretariat, Lotus Temple and Akshardham as per the reports.
