Lashing out at the Centre in the wake of the Pathankot terror strike, the Shiv Sena today said it had warned Prime Minister Narendra Modi not to trust Pakistan and that time has now come for him to focus on India rather than trying to unite the world.

The attack has proven that our borders are not safe, India’s internal security is in shambles and the only national work being done is giving condolences to the martyred on social networking sites, the Sena said in a hard-hitting editorial in party mouthpiece ‘Saamana’.

“Seven of our soldiers get martyred in return of a cup of tea with Nawaz Sharif…The incident has proven that our borders are not safe and our internal security is in shambles. With the lives of six terrorists, Pakistan has managed to finish India’s self-respect,” it said.

Further hitting out at the government, the ruling alliance partner said, “The Prime Minister was in Lahore only last week as a guest of his counterpart Nawaz Sharif. At that time, we had warned him not to trust Pakistan.”

“See how we have been betrayed today. If Pakistan wants to improve relations with India, they should immediately hand over Jaish-e-Mohammed’s Maulana Masood Azhar to India,” it said.

The Sena also said that had the Congress been in power today, there would have been demands to strike at Pakistan and avenge the deaths of soldiers, but now nothing is being done about the incident.

“The only national work being done is condoling the deaths of soldiers on (social networking site) Twitter. But why have these soldiers died? PM Modi is trying to unite the world, but time has now come for him to concentrate on India,” it said.

The Sena also said that if India does not avenge the Pathankot terror attack, then displaying its military and arms and ammunition strength on Republic Day would be futile.

      Going by election analysis, no body besides pre 1970 born maharashtrians, or radicalised ones support you.. maharashtrians need a regional party but not like this not like you, your antics remind one of kejriwal taking on pm to seem important, i think you should worry about the modern maharashtrians that no longer fall for your age old strategy of politics of pride... Pls build our roads you had, bmc for ages.. yet roads are better called pot heavens. Mumbai is a swimming pool in the rains.. By saying that arent you giving smiles to stanis when someone who is an ally uses such statements to gain political mileage... You hurt your allies chances in bihar elections, this behaviour is only denting your image by showing you as a bad team player.. and the young maratha is only going to think which side are you on, holding your alliance partner on a ransom, like this and picking on your friends for political mileage.. Sincerely

          How many ex-armymen are leaders in Shiv Sena? Or is it just zubaani sena?

            When there is a leader democratically elected all forces need to support that leader. When Sena become PM it can do its own way and again everybody will need to support it. Obviously some politicians are illiterate about democratic responsibilities. Making comments here and there will only help the enemies.

              If Moulana Azar would have been killed when he was captured by India lot of our soldiers would be alive. He was in jail before India decided to release when they hijacked indian airlines plane in Afgabisthan.

                  3 s- Main Musshraff, Mullah Hafeez Saeed and Maulana Azhar should be arrested and AAP should do investigations on them in India under Kejri;s leadership. In this way we can put Kejri to some good use

                    Unfortunate - the fat cats in Military Establishment yet again caused this debacle - it's always heroics that saves the day often with large casualties

                            Constant nagging. Earlier it was his cousin Raj and now him. Doesn't realise that had the security forces hadn't acted with speed so many lives would have been lost besides ets. He did not say anything about the Mumbai macre. Living room cowards.

                                Sena can shut up. We saw what these beggars did hiding in their bungalow during 26/11. Only time Sena has any balls is when it is beating up poor, unarmed migrants.

                                  Armed forces fight to protect the nation and countrymen of all shades living on this land and sadly it includes people who have no tolerance for people from other states irrespective of caste and religion. Such allies are worst than enemies. At least we know that to maintain good relation with neighbors we shall have to put efforts. Such allies as Shiv Sena shall keep making noises just to stay relevant for their own cadre.

                                    Shiv Sena leadership has keenness for strategic thinking and their predictions have been always true. More of Shiv Sena MP,s should be made ministers in Central Government and igned big ministries to match their clout and use their experience of running establishment at gr root levels.

                                          AGREED! THERE ARE A LOT POLICIES OF THE PRESENT AND PAST GOVERNMENTS ARE CONUOUSLY CONFUSED. SO THE FOREIGN AFFAIRS. AND THEREBY SEEN BY THE WORLD AS A SOFT STATE. THE INCIDENTS OF THE PAST WERE A SORDID STORY AND MISTAKE IN ALLOWING THE IC-814 TO LEAVE AMRITSAR, HAS HAD A DISASTROUS CONSEQUENCE THAT WE FEEL THE PINCH EVEN TODAY! SO, MY POINT AND REQUEST TO THE WHO'S WHO OF OUR COUNTRY TO DECIDE PRIORITIES AND APPROPRIATION OF OUR NATIONAL GOALS, AND IN THAT WE HAVE MADE A LOT OF HURRY! IN A WAY UDHAVJI IS CORRECT IS SAYING: AS EVERY TIME A CALL OF SHOW OF THE EMOTIONAL ATTACHMENT, INDIA ALONG ITS POLICIES GOT STABBED IN THE BACK!
