In a veiled attack on Pakistan, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said there’s anger in India post the Uri attack, where 18 soldiers sacrificed their lives after our neighbour exported terrorists there.

Addressing the BJP national conclave in Kozhikode, PM Modi said, “There is only one country in Asia that indulges in terrorism and exporting it around the world. Terrorism is humanity’s enemy and India will never forget the 18 martyred soldiers who were killed by terrorists in Uri.”

“Terrorists should hear out clearly that India will never forget the Uri attack…. I want to tell the leadership of Pakistan that the sacrifice of our 18 jawans will not go in vain,” Modi said on the sidelines of the BJP national council meet.

“Be it Afghanistan, Bangladesh or other nations, we have seen whenever the news of terror incidents comes, terrorists have either gone from this country (Pakistan) or have settled there after committing the crime,” he said.
The Prime Minister said India had never bowed to terror and will never do so in future and will strive to defeat it.

PM Modi also slammed Pakistan saying that the country cannot handle PoK, Gilgit and Balochistan, which are already under it’s control. “A day will come when people of Pakistan will go against its own government to fight terrorism,” he added. He also directly appealed to Pakistani citizens saying that India was ready to fight for them if they have the strength to join the fight against poverty.

The Uri attacks issue dominated the first day of three-day BJP conclave. A militant attack on an army base in Uri, Jammu and Kashmir, has claimed the lives of eighteen soldiers. While 17 soldiers died on Sunday, the army confirmed that one more critically injured soldier succumbed to his injuries on Thursday, pushing the death toll to 18.

The armed militants lobbed grenades into their tents and barracks, while the soldiers were sleeping. The ensuing fire led to a large number of casualties. Twenty-eight injured soldiers are being treated at a military hospital.
