India will give befitting reply to ‘inhumane’ Pakistan: BJP

New Delhi/Mumbai: Expressing grave concern over Pakistan’s barbaric act in Jammu and Kashmir, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Wednesday said for every life that has been lost of the soldiers or mutilated, there will be a befitting reply from the Indian Government.

“We have a strategy in place but that strategy needs not be announced in the public domain. It is for the national security advisors and Prime Minister Narendra Modi to take as a decision. Let me assure every Indian that for the every life that has been lost of our soldiers or mutilated, there will be a befitting reply in the days to come,” BJP leader Shaina N.C. told ANI.

Meanwhile, the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) said that whenever such incident comes into light which has been initiated by Pakistan, they ask for evidences and try to give explanations.

“I believe Pakistan has violated international conventions and have proved to be inhumane. For this, a strict action needs to be taken against them by the Indian Government,” NCP leader Tariq Anwar said.

Earlier on Monday, the Pakistani soldiers along with their Border Action Team (BAT), which include trained border inhabitants, launched a joint attack. They first fired rockets and followed this up with firing from automatic weapons, near Kranti Post located in Poonch’s Krishna Ghati Sector around 8.30 a.m.

The Pakistanis then crossed the LoC, entered 200 meters into Indian Territory, and attacked a joint patrol of the Army and Border Security Force (BSF), heading towards a nearby post. It is the same Krishna Ghati sector where the Pakistani BAT had beheaded Lance Naik Hemraj and badly severed the head of Lance Naik Sudhakar Singh of 13 Rajputana Rifles, on January 8, 2013.
