The ignoble and demeaning militant attack on Amaranth Ji yatris at Anantnag has attracted condemnation across the society. The political parties protesting and blaming coalition govt at centre and state level for the incident is sheer politicisation of the gruesome incident. The need of hour is to see wounds as wounds and restrain from politicising them.
Viewing the macabre incident of militants targeting yatris returning back after holy darshan and opposition parties blaming this as failing of NDA equating it with attacks in 2000 and 2001 when too NDA ruled at centre, S.S.Bijral former IGP and BJP state spokesperson said that it was for the first time NDA govt under PM Narinder Modi has taken to challenge terrorism, the state policy of Pakistan, globally with Pakistan getting isolated, and at home with clear mandate to commanders on borders to befittingly respond the enemy without waiting for nod from political leadership. He asserted with NIA having tightened its noose around terrorism supporters enjoying unchecked terrorist funding, we expect enemy to be more aggressive for its own survival. With a strong leadership at helm we are entering into a decisive stage. Awakened we, need to rise as one nation above party politics, to succeed.
Bijral said when political parties link these enemy strikes as political failing, they need to know, that they are discouraging armed forces and police since engaged in bloody proxy war, with another country, through their blood and sweat. Ignoring this, they will not escape public eye of suspicion. Let’s stand by them and not belittle their sacrifices realising that more the enemy gets determined, far more we need to be united and striking.
Bijral lauding nationalistic spirit of our people who are increasingly flocking for the pilgrimage undeterred by militant attacks said that this strengthened spirit of nationalism is the greatest achievement of Modi led NDA govt.
