New Delhi: Union Home Minister Amit Shah warned Pakistan of more surgical strikes if it did not stop its transgressions and sponsoring the killing of civilians in Kashmir. "The surgical strikes proved that we don't tolerate attacks. More will come if you transgress," Home Minister Amit Shah warns Pakistan.
Remembering former Goa chief minister and India's former defence minister Manohar Parrikar, Amit Shah on Thursday said the surgical strike was a new chapter in India's defence.
"The surgical strike under Prime Minister Narendra Modi and former defence minister Manohar Parrikar was an important step. We sent out a message that no one can disturb India's borders. There was a time for talks, but now is the time to reciprocate," the report quoted Shah as saying.
According to India Today, Shah — who was addressing the foundation laying ceremony of a university in Goa's Dharbandora — also added: "The surgical strikes proved that we don't tolerate attacks. More will come if you transgress."
Pakistan Reacts to Amit Shah's Veiled Threat
Pakistan on Thursday said it is a peace-loving country but will not spare any effort to thwart any 'aggressive design' of India. The comments came after Union Home Minister Amit Shah referred to surgical strike in his speech in Goa.
"This delusional statement only goes to further demonstrate the BJP-RSS combine's propensity to stoke regional tensions for both ideological reasons and political expediency, based on enmity towards Pakistan," FO spokesperson Asim Iftikhar Ahmad said in a statement.
