Will eliminate Pak-promoted terrorism from root: Rajnath Singh

Published

on

Pakistan wants to break India by promoting terrorism and the Indian security forces foiled these plans in 1971 and now work is going on to eliminate terrorism from the root, said Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Sunday.
Addressing the Swarnim Vijay Parv celebrations today at India Gate to commemorate 50 years of India’s historic victory in the 1971 war and Indo-Bangladesh friendship, Rajnath Singh said, “Pakistan wants to break India by promoting terrorism. Indian forces foiled these plans in 1971 and now work is going on to eliminate terrorism from the root. We have won in a direct war, victory will be ours in an indirect war also.”
Defence Minister pointed out that a neighbouring country is continuously fighting a proxy war with India.
“This war also tells us that the partition of India on the basis of religion was a historical mistake. Pakistan was born in the name of one religion but it could not remain one. After the defeat of 1971, our neighbouring country is continuously fighting a proxy war in India,” he said.
“This Vijay Parv festival is not only of any particular operation, but the spirit of victory settled in the soul of the countrymen and our armies, which is present in all parts of our armies from Rani Laxmibai to Major Somnath Sharma, Veer Abdul Hamid and Captain Vikram Batra today,” Defence Minister said.
Recalling the two world wars, he said, “In the twentieth century, there were two world wars which lasted for many years. After both the world wars, if the most decisive wars of the twentieth century are counted, then the 1971 war will be counted among the most decisive wars in the world.”
Singh highlighted that, unlike our country, Pakistan chooses to name its missiles after invaders who attacked India.
The Union Minister further said, “How strong is the feeling of anti-India in Pakistan…it can be seen from the fact that they name their missiles after the invaders who attacked India. Ghori, Ghaznavi, Abdali! They should be asked whether they even attacked today’s Pakistani territory.”
He said, “Whereas India’s missiles are named Akash, Prithvi, Agni. Now one of our missiles has also been named Sant. He had a successful test yesterday only. I congratulate the entire team of DRDO.”
‘Swarnim Vijay Parv’ is being celebrated at India Gate, New Delhi from December 12 till December 13, 2021, to commemorate 50 years of India’s historic victory in the 1971 war and the Indo-Bangladesh friendship. The event was inaugurated by Rajnath Singh today. Major weapons and equipment used during the 1971 war have been displayed along with the snippets of major battles.

He said that in the ensuing year, the army believes that Pulwama will see a further dip in local militant recruitment.
As per the news agency, the GoC was on a visit to the southern districts of Shopian and Pulwama on the eve of 73rd Republic Day. He met senior citizens and traders in these twin districts of South Kashmir.
Talking to media persons at Shopian, the GoC said that the people of Kashmir want peace and not militancy. “Militancy related incidents are declining and we believe they will further go down in the ongoing year,” he said.
The army officer said that if the number of militants and militancy-related incidents decline, it will provide more opportunities to local youth to make their future.
“Time has come when people have to choose the path of peace and stability,” he said, adding that the people of South Kashmir like those of north Kashmir have realized the effects of militancy.
The GoC said that the wrong narrative is being taught to children and wherever it happens, youth are bound to choose the wrong path “as it is the easy way out and just a glamour.”
“Youth are picking guns because of unemployment but the wrong path is being shown to them,” Pandey said. He said that the situation was getting better as people, especially youth have understood that taking the path of militancy was wrong.
He said that militancy-related incidents have declined in Pulwama but “local militant recruitment continues to be on the rise.” “We believe this (local militant recruitment) will also go down in the ongoing area,” the GoC said and sought people’s cooperating in bringing peace and development in southern districts of Kashmir
