Demanding justice for soldiers martyred in Uri terror attack, a group of young men from Uttar Pradesh’s Sambhal have written several letters to Prime Minister Narendra Modi with their blood. In the letters, the youths have demanded justice for soldiers, instead of “condemning on Twitter” . “The martyrs need justice, not condemnation tweets,” one of the placards read. “Make Nawaz Sharif wake-up,” says the other placard. Some other placards addressed to PM Modi had messages like, “We need war, not dialogues,” and “Khoon ka Badla Khoon (Eye for an eye).” Taking a note of Nawaz Sharif’s speech at United Nations, a youth wrote, “At least do something after Nawaz Sharif’s speech.” The demand for stringent action against Pakistan comes in the backdrop of a deadly terror attack at an army base camp in Jammu & Kashmir’s Uri district on Sunday.
Four armed militants had stormed the administrative buildings and store complex of an infantry battalion in Uri, home of the 12 Infantry Brigade, near the Line of Control (LoC), in wee hours of the day. This led to a gun battle between the Army and the terrorists. Indian Government in its initial probe has found a Pakistani hand in the attack.
The terror strike has fueled fresh tensions between India and Pakistan. Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif at UN referred slain terrorist Burhan Wani as a ‘young leader’ and even demanded an independent inquiry” into the “extrajudicial killings” in Kashmir. India has decided to isolate Pakistan on every international grouping. On the international front, many countries including France, Japan and Germany have condemned the attack and said that the strike was an attempt to start a wave of violence.
