Amid strain in ties with Pakistan, Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar on Tuesday compared the neigbouring country to “hell” and asserted that it should stop human rights violations in Balochistan.

Referring to an infiltration bid which was foiled on Monday by the Indian Army, he said, “Kal humare jawano ne paanch logon (terrorists) ko wapas bhej dia, Pakistan mein jaana aur nark (hell) mein jaana ek hi hai (Our soldiers sent back five terrorists yesterday. Going to Pakistan is same as going to hell).”

He also said PoK is part of India and violation of human rights must stop in Balochistan.

In his Independence Day address yesterday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi also talked about the situation in Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir (PoK), Gilgit and Baluchistan and said people from there have thanked him for raising their issues.

Parrikar, who later flagged off the ‘Tiranga Yatra’ organised to mark the country’s 70th Independence Day, said Pakistan has always been “promoting” terrorism and the nation is now bearing its consequences.

He assured the people that “Indian soldiers will give a befitting reply to every attack”.

Parrikar alongside Rao Singh Rao Inderjit, Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Ministry of Planning and Minister of State for Urban Development and Housing & Urban Poverty Alleviation, paid rich tributes to Rao Tula Ram at his birthplace, who was one of the key leaders of the Indian rebellion of 1857.

    Religious intolerance in stan was reported to be at its height, hundreds of minorities, women, journalists and liberals were being kiIIed by Islamist fundamentalist extremists, while the Government remained mostly a silent spectator, often only making statements which condemned the ruthless acts of violence by the Muslim Sunni extremists but taking no real action.

          Oh so if you do more than BJP or RSS you are a good human being even if you falsely pretend to be Mother Theresa but in reality under her Christian priests missionaries were molesting kids. Any atrocity is bad against weaker section or by weaker section by people like Amravati or by minorities like Owaisi. But you will never get it since you only know hatred against Hindus. And you did agree with me on Aamir being a jihadi.
