Defence News: The Indian Army while telling Pakistan how dastardly their act of attacking, killing and mutilating the bodies of our soldiers is, has a plan brewing in place. Army has said “We will respond to Pakistan at time and place of our choosing” And rightly so. Military planning is no chest thumping business. It may be a corn flake making, “outsourcing expert” army in our neighborhood but we need to reply in cold blood.
“Pakistan will have to face the consequences of mutilating bodies of two Indian soldiers and the army will respond to the dastardly act at a time and place of its choosing” vice-chief of army staff Sarath Chand said on Tuesday. He said the killing of the two soldiers and beheading them showed frustration of the Pakistan military and the Army is prepared to respond. “I do not want to say what we will do. Instead of speaking, we will focus on our action at a time and place of our choosing,” he told the press.
Over possible operations aimed at Pakistan, The Vice chief said: “They (Pakistani army) have said it was not done by their forces. Then who did it. Their people came to our area and did it. They will have to take responsibility and face consequences for it” India’s Director General of Military Operations (DGMO) lieutenant general AK Bhatt spoke to his Pakistan counterpart and expressed “grave concern” about the killing and beheading of the two soldiers in the Krishna Ghati sector of Poonch in Jammu and Kashmir on Monday. He told the Pakistani military that mutilating bodies of the two soldiers was a “dastardly and inhuman act” which called for a response and unequivocal condemnation. “The DGMO of the Indian army conveyed that such a dastardly and inhuman act is beyond any norms of civility and merits unequivocal condemnation and response,” Indian army said in a statement. The DGMO also conveyed to his Pakistani counterpart that “full fire” support was provided by the Pakistani Army post located in the vicinity of the incident site.
The defence minister Mr. Arun jaitley has also said “sacrifice (of the two killed) will not go in vain” and the Indian armed forces will react “appropriately” to the “inhuman act” of the Pakistani intruders. “This is a reprehensible and an inhuman act. Such attacks don’t even take place during war, let alone during peace time. Bodies of soldiers being mutilated is an extreme form of barbaric act,” the defence minister said. For the sacrifice of Naib Subedar Paramjeet Singh and BSF head constable Prem Sagar should not go in vein. These are the soldiers who laid down their lives for us, their families are now looking for revenge, deep and cold, served inside Pakistan.
Hot heads should not prevail, we need to collect the right intelligence, draw up our plans and strike, while keeping the results in mind. Results that should not deter us but help us prepare for any eventuality. The public outcry has reached to a new high, with every person on the street not afraid to talk of an all out war. Pakistan has to understand we had enough of it’s idiotic blood games and if it does not end them, it’s existence has to come to an abrupt end.
