Moving to hit out in a cold and calculated way, India is likely to move the United Nations to name Pakistan a ‘terror state’, reported India Today. According to the channel’s news report, at a high-level meeting chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, India has taken the decision to raise the issue of Pakistan’s ‘terrorist activities’ at UN. It is also likely that the Indian Parliament may declare Pakistan as a ‘terror state’. Reports suggest that PM Modi wants to isolate Pakistan in global forums. If this happens, then this would be India’s biggest global move against Pakistan.
Sources told ANI that the meeting chaired by PM Modi gave its nod to diplomatically isolate Pakistan at every international grouping. India will now present “all actionable evidence”, if required at international bodies. ” Evidence of Pakistan’s hand in Uri attack i.e, GPS tracker movements that go back to starting point in Pakistan, Pashto literature, Pakistan army marked arms will be given to Pakistan at DGMO level,” ANI reported. Home Minister Rajnath Singh, Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, National Security Advisor Ajit Doval, Army Chief General Dalbir Singh Suhag besides other senior officials attended the meeting.
The deadliest attack on security forces in recent years, has killed 18 soldiers. Nineteen security personnel were injured, one of whom Sepoy K Vikas Janardhan, has succumbed to his injuries. The attack by four terrorists took place in the wee hours of Sunday morning in Jammu and Kashmir’s Uri. All the four terrorists, suspected to be from Pakistan-based JeM, have been neutralised.
Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar and Indian Army chief General Dalbir Singh Suhag visited Kashmir to take stock of the security situation and to meet the injured soldiers. India has reacted strongly to the attack. PM Modi strongly condemned it saying, “We strongly condemn the cowardly terror attack in Uri. I assure the nation that those behind this despicable attack will not go unpunished.” Defence experts have asked India to keep its military options open to retaliate and hit Pakistan “where it hurts”.
