Mumbai : Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev on Saturday called for ‘teaching a tough lesson’ to Pakistan following the Pathankot terror attack, saying that India should be in ‘attack’ mode when dealing with Islamabad.
“India is a strong and powerful country. It should be in ‘attack’ mode in context to Pakistan, that’s when we will be able to protect ourselves,” Ramdev told ANI.
“Pakistan should be taught a tough lesson that it does not repeat such incidents,” he added.
The 4-day long Pathankot anti-terror operation ended on Friday.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi is currently visiting the Pathankot air base and will be visiting injured jawans among other things.
Earlier, the Pakistani Government has asked for more and ‘concrete’ evidence instead of ‘leads’ to take action against the suspects of being involved in the terrorist strike on the airbase.
India had earlier shared leads with Islamabad which mostly included intercepts of telephone calls made by the terrorists to their alleged handlers and the locations of the numbers which they had called in Pakistan.
Later, Pakistan acknowledged that they had received the leads and had begun working on them. Sharif then called Prime Minister Modi and assured him of prompt action against the guilty.
According to a statement issued by the Prime Minister’s Office, the meeting reviewed the progress on the information shared by India and it was decides that the matter would be continued to discuss with New Delhi.
Meanwhile, India awaits Pakistan’s formal response to the shared leads and has expressed quick action from Islamabad so that the upcoming foreign secretaries talks are not hampered.
Pathankot district was attacked by six terrorists from Pakistan on January 2. Seven security personnel were martyred and another 20 were injured in the attack. (ANI)
