Any harming country will be similarly responded, says Indian Defense Minister
NEW DELHI (92 News) – Following the Pathankot terror attack, Indian Defense Minister Manohar Parrikar has on Monday said that any individual or organization causing pain to India should be paid back in the same coin but how, when and where “should be of our choice”.
As the Indian government continues to accuse Pakistan of Pathan Kot Air Base attack, the Indian defense minister said that history tells us that until those who inflict damage on others experience the same pain, they don’t change.
Parrikar stressed that this was his view and should not be taken as the view of the Indian government. “How, when and where (to inflict pain) should be of your choice,” he went on. “But if someone is harming the country, I think the particular individual or organization should receive the pain of such activity.”
He said that he purposely used the words individual and organization, should also receive the pain of such activities. Without referring to the Pathankot attack, the Minister said the country was proud of its seven soldiers who laid down their lives but he is pained by the loss.
