Tonk: Prime Minister Narendra Modi condemned the recent attacks on the Kashmiri students in the aftermath of Pulwama terror attack and said that ‘such things should not happen in this country’. Paying homage to CRPF personnel killed in the Pulwama terror attack, he said peace in the world is not possible if terrorism continues and added that the entire world is with the families of those killed. “Not just India, the entire world is with you (families). Have faith in soldiers and the government,” the PM asserted.
At least 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) jawans were killed in Kashmir valley as a Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) militant Adil Ahmad Dar rammed an explosive-laden truck into a bus in the convoy of the security personnel on February 14.
Addressing the Vijay Sankalp Rally in Tonk district of Rajasthan ahead of Lok Sabha Elections 2019, PM Modi said, “Our fight is against terrorism and enemies of humanity. Our fight is for Kashmir not against Kashmir, not against Kashmiris. What happened to Kashmiri students in last few days, such things should not happen in this country.”
Issuing a stern warning to Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, PM Modi said, “When Pakistan got a new PM, I had congratulated him. I had told him that we together should fight against poverty and illiteracy. He had said to me that he was son of a Pathan and will stand by his words. Today, it is time to test if he will stand by his words.”
Thanking PM Modi for breaking his silence on attacks on Kashmiris, National Conference leader Omar Abdullah on Saturday tweeted, “Thank you @narendramodi Sahib. Aaj aap ne hamaray dil ki baat keh di (you have conveyed the feelings of our heart).”
In another tweet, he said, “It’s been a more than a week since the terrible attack in Pulwama and more than a week that Kashmiris have been bearing the brunt of the public anger. Perhaps finally after PM @narendramodi Sb has spoken these forces targeting Kashmiris will stop in their tracks.”
PM Narendra Modi’s statement came in the wake of reports of attacks on Kashmiris living outside Jammu and Kashmir amid the global outrage over dastardly Pulwama terror attack.
