The Huzur MLA went on to say that those seeking proof from soldiers who shed their blood for the country were “traitors or Pakistani agents speaking the language of Nawaz Sharif”.

BJP MLA Rameshwar Sharma on Wednesday said that those seeking proof of the Indian Army’s surgical strikes in PoK were like people who insist on “watching the video of their parents’ wedding night before accepting someone as father”.

Referring to the remarks by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam on the surgical strikes, the BJP legislator said, “Be it Kejriwal or Nirupam, whoever, irrespective of political affiliation, insults the Army or does not have faith in it and demands proof is like an individual who insists on watching the video of his parents’ suhaag raat before accepting someone as his father.’’

The Huzur MLA went on to say that those seeking proof from soldiers who shed their blood for the country were “traitors or Pakistani agents speaking the language of Nawaz Sharif”.

“When soldiers make the supreme sacrifice, why should they not get their due? Why should someone insult them,’’ he told The Indian Express when asked about his comments.

“I did not mean to insult Kejriwal or others, but only voiced my feelings,’’ he said, adding that the BJP has not asked him to apologise or warned him following his remark.

Sharma is not new to controversies. Two years ago, he linked “love jihad” to garba and asked the Bhopal district administration to ask garba organisers to insist on identity cards and allow non-Hindu men only if they give an affidavit that they have faith in Hinduism and its gods.

    The proof is in the pudding ! There were no casualities on stani side except for 2 martyred by the Indian mortars. There is no proof that India sent its troops by Helicopters to strike stan. This phantom non-surgical " surgical strike " is an Indian army and BJP day dream. Show the proof or else shut up.

    You stupid , they are two separate things....nobody asks the proof of Sun because they can see it. Entire world would like to see India backing its claim. You know how ic India looks when it says POK is ours yet somebody else is occupying it for more than 60 years..It is not like the video is going to come up with commentary that we are in so and so place and now we attack etc...u can't really distinguish a place in himachal with that of Kashmir at night..,.so there should be no sensitivity to releasing the video. Why u want people to believe blindly, illogically and irrationally....so they elect a like you to parliament?
