New Delhi [India], Sept. 19 : With India-Pakistan ties facing continued turbulence after the deadly terror strike in Uri, Jammu and Kashmir, in which 17 Indian soldiers were killed, Prime Minister Narendra  Modi’s presence in the SAARC summit in Islamabad this November remains doubtful.  According to sources, no decision has been taken as yet on the Prime Minister’s participation at the SAARC summit meet in Islamabad.   Following the terror strike on the Army base in Uri, India lashed out at Pakistan holding it responsible for the attack.   Also Read:  Uri attack: Narendra Modi cancels Pakistan visit for SAARC summit

 Branding Pakistan a ‘terrorist state’ and stating that it should be identified and isolated as such, Home Minister Rajnath Singh yesterday said there are definite and conclusive indications that the perpetrators of Uri attack were highly trained, heavily armed and specially equipped.  “I am deeply disappointed with Pakistan’s continued and direct support to terrorism and terrorist groups,” he said in a series of tweets.  Meanwhile, condemning the terror attack as well, Prime Minister Narendra Modi assured the nation that those behind the ‘despicable’ attack will not go unpunished.

 “We salute all those martyred in Uri. Their service to the nation will always be remembered. My thoughts are with the bereaved families,” the Prime Minister said in a series of tweets.  Hinting at the Jaish-e-Mohammad’s role behind the Uri attack, India’s Director General Military Operations (DGMO) Lt. Gen. Ranbir Singh also asserted that the evil designs would get a befitting reply.  However, Pakistan has flatly refused New Delhi’s claims of Islamabad’s involvement in Uri terror attack, stating that said that pointing fingers on them has become a traditional tendency of India after each terrorist attack.
