Uri: It’s a wakeup call, NDA please do not snooze

Uri, Jammu & Kashmir, India

If you analyze these attacks you will find that these are not targeted to any specific place or state, from North to south and east to west all part of India is under the radar of these terrorist. These all are not separatist movements, this is an indirect war.

Let’s check what action India always takes after such Incident

  1. Condemn the terrorist attack
  2. Statement “Action will be taken only after proper planning, coordination, exploring all options and taking everyone concerned into confidence”.
  3. No Bi-literal Cricket Matches will be played between two countries; but ICC tournaments are allowed.
  4. If there are any International summits around, we will cancel it.

It is very easy to put blames on one country and forget all over mistakes and loop holes. India is spending millions of dollars on border security, then how come these terrorist come close the most sensitive areas and attack. India’s military budget of 2015/16 is 2.47 trillion India Rupees ($40.07 Billion). World knows that India getting into a war is far from realistic, if it does then there will be nuclear winter covering half of the world. Then how come we are not spending enough on border securities and spending major part in importing war heads. India is the largest arms importer and the question is what we are doing with these arms. Are we stocking it to sell it in winters!!!

Why we always wonder after all terrorist attack about what to do next? Honorable Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi always speaks of terrorism and his contribution in spreading the awareness program to the world about terrorism; then how come the current government does not have any pre-programme for post terrorist attack. Why media has to fool audience by giving away various things India Government can do to take the revenge? Why can’t it be charted out and put it in constitution the various steps to be conducted after any terror attack? This is what Government of France did after Paris attack. Why need to beg to UN, US, SAARC etc for our internal security. Isn’t the safe guard of once sovereignty highest priority of any nation?

We have elected the current government only on the faith that Mr. Narendra Modi has courage to do and give befit reply to anyone questioning the integrating and sovereignty of India. May this be the last attack and government come up with some plan to safe guard the lives of our soldiers.

Let’s pray and offer condolence to the families of martyrs who lost their life serving 1.32 billion Indians.
