Increasing hostility of Pakistan deserves a befitting response: Brig Gupta

The prompt punitive strike carried out by Infantry Commandos (Ghatak) of the Infantry Battalion of Indian Army in the Rakh Chakri sub-sector of Rawalakot (POJK) across Poonch should serve as a perfect warning to the Pakistan Army of the brilliant professionalism and valiant spirit of the Indian Army troops deployed on the Line of Control who will revenge each and every violation by the Pakistan Army with greater ferocity and vigour stated the press release issued by Bharatiya Janata Party wherein praises have been showered on the befitting and timely response of Indian Army to the dastardly and barbarous act of ceasefire violation in Keri (Nowshera) sector couple of days back. Pakistan needs to behave and exercise proper control and restraint on its troops deployed on Indian border failing which it should be ready to face the consequences has warned Brig Anil Gupta, State Spokesperson of the Party. The release states that ever since the installation of Modi government at the Centre there has been a policy shift on responding to unprovoked ceasefire violations wherein local commanders have been delegated full authority for appropriate response in order to maintain tactical assertiveness under the umbrella of strategic restraint. The prompt retaliation by the Indian troops wherein they went across the LOC to plant an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) and killing six Pakistani soldiers in the resultant cross fire speaks volumes of the valour of our troops and deserves kudos stated Brig Gupta.
Such actions lead to quid pro quo responses and may lead to escalation of tension on the LOC causing undue harassment to the local residents according to Brig Gupta. He advised the local administration to prepare various contingencies so that they are not caught unaware leading to unnecessary loss of life or injury to the locals. The loss suffered by the Pakistani Army will not be easily digestible to it and it may respond by targeting the civilians warned the press release.
Bharatiya Janata Party also expressed dismay and concern at the inhuman behaviour of Pakistani officials during the meeting of the mother and wife of Commander Kulbhushan Jadhav with him. Pakistani authorities failed to adhere to the mutually agreed protocols prior to the meeting and deliberately violated them to harass the visitors. The personal and religious sentiments of the ladies were hurt and they were subjected to an “emotional torture” read the statement. Pakistan crossed all limits of civility and humanitarianism during the planned visit and proved to the world the scant respect it has for social values and human rights lamented Brig Gupta. The meeting not only proved to be farce but a blatant attempt to create false narratives regarding involvement of Commander Jadhav in alleged cases of terrorism in Pakistan which we strongly condemn. The increasing hostility of Pakistan deserves a befitting response which hopefully should be done soon said Brig Gupta.
