No need to give out video of surgical strikes, those seeking are not loyal to country: Manohar Parrikar

"No one had doubted bravery of our forces ever, but for the first time recently some people are doubting. There are many people who are not loyal to our country and criticized Indian army, but we don’t have to give them any proof," said Parrikar at a BJP function in Agra.

Hitting out at politicians who have demanded proof of the surgical strikes conducted by the Indian army in the Pakistan Occupied Kashmir, in retaliation to the Uri attack, Defence Minister Manohar Parrkiar on Thursday said that no one had doubted bravery of our forces ever and the government is not going to oblige them by giving proof of the Army action.

“No one had doubted bravery of our forces ever, but for the first time recently some people are doubting. There are many people who are not loyal to our country and criticized Indian army, but we don’t have to give them any proof,” said Parrikar at a BJP function in Agra.

Parrkiar said that many ex-servicemen have shown willingness to fight on the border if required. “Some ex-servicemen wrote to me and said that they are ready to fight on the border if need arises.I salute them,” said the minister.

Describing the cross-LoC operation as “100 per cent perfect surgical strike”, he said the borders of the country are secure under the Narendra Modi government.

Highlighting the news report of CNN News18 in which a Pakistani police officer has admitted that surgical strikes did happen, Parrikar said, “There is now no more reason to release video or to give any proof.”

He also said that the forces and citizens will have to be vigilant against “frustrated” terrorists who will try and attack because of the shame they have been put to as a result of the surgical strikes.

The Uttar Pradesh unit of the BJP gave a “warm reception” to Parrikar and felicitated him for the successful surgical strike by the forces. BJP workers in the state capital have put up big hoardings thanking Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Parrikar for “teaching a lesson to Pakistan.”

              Since the so called strike happened, the so called Defense Minister never thought it is the right of the people to hear a word from him on the so called strike, other than stupid comment like "after the strike stan is like a ansthetized patient". lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;And it takes 10 days to make an official statement and again it is stupid.

                            Looks like that Panghaal character (a stani with fake Indian name) has gone into hiding after the attacks. If anyone comments strongly against terrorism or pak, he asks commentator to reveal its ideny... so that he and his other pok campere can target the commentator in the physical space... beware!!lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;I haven't seen his comments in a while - may be he had to relocate from the 12th camp to 34th camp knowing India will get him... Mayur, you are next... go to Hijadistan (=Islamabad)

                              There was no need for modi govt to reveal that it had carried out surgical strikes. In the past no govt has publicly revealed it. But modi govt first revealed it to gain votes at national interest. If they had not done so no one would have raided any questions or asked for video.

                                Reading through the many opinions here I'm inclined to believe that simple, common-sense is scarcely to be seen. A man who is drowning will catch the last straw and try to save himself. Same is the case with some political parties. The Army is our pride but political will was lacking till now. Now that Modi has taken the decisive step, other parties are worried. They feel BJP will dismantle other parties.lt;br/gt;Having said this, do these politicians crying for proof really believe that even if we release the video., Will Pak accept it?? It has been in a denial for 70 years. Why will it start believing us now?? Surely these politicians keep politics above their country. Why care to pander to their whims and fancies?? lt;br/gt;I have never seen another country like ours. If their country's ruling party attacks an enemy do other politicians ask proofs?? And does the common man get carried away and support such decisions?? The armed forces of India are above politics. The army is one and only one organization that has never let us down and never will. Let politicians play politics, how can the common man believe such humbug??

Their very own "Blast from the Past" is slowly losing the shine and is just not enough to give them the "momentum" to move in fast lane of Modi Highway! They really are very frustrated!

                                      They can either bring their own "proof" from the past like they said they did three surgical strikes in their time (!) or wait for their time when they can bring any in future!

                                        What they want to do with the video? How many of them have worked in the army to understand the significance of it. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Give instead some video games to these mob to play with. May be some video game business can come up with some new game with AK, Rahul and others of their kinds as players! For sure, it will definitely do a good business!
