Hailing the surgical strikes by India on terror launch pads across the LoC, the wife of martyred soldier Hemraj, said the action was a “befitting reply” to Pakistan.

“The strikes by India have instilled confidence among soldiers and the common man. But if such a step was taken earlier, we would not have lost lives of soldiers in Uri,” Dharmvati said here yesterday.

She said the government should not show any leniency towards Pakistan-sponsored terrorists.

Lance Naik Hemraj was killed and beheaded by Pakistani soldiers on January 8, 2013 in Poonch sector of Jammu and Kashmir.

India had carried out the surgical strikes across LoC on Wednesday night, inflicting “significant casualties” on terrorists and those who were trying to support them.

The sudden action by the Army came 11 days after the terror strike by Pakistan-based JeM on an Indian Army camp in Uri in Kashmir which left 19 Indian soldiers dead.
