NEW DELHI: Ex Chief of Indian Army Chief Shankar Roy Choudhury Monday has urged government to raise ‘Fidayeen’ – suicide squad against Pakistan.
The extreme demand came after 17 Indian soldiers died and 34 injured in an attack on military base camp in Uri, Occupied Kashmir.
As per Indian media reports, four Jihadis stormed Indian military base in Uri sector, Occupied Kashmir in wee hour of Sunday. All of the attackers were killed in the encounter with Indian forces.
Commenting on the insurgent attack in Indian-held Kashmir, India’s former military head went on to suggest Prime Minister Narendra Modi: “Let’s building our own Fidayeen.”
He further added that India should pay more attention to the Uri sector instead of the annual session of the United Nations General Assembly, reported DailyPakistan.
“The world has left us alone to resolve our problems today,” he said while talking to NDTV’s Barkha Dutt.
Earlier on Sunday, Indian Home Minister Rajnath Singh directly blamed Pakistan for the Uri attack, without presenting a single piece of evidence.
He even called Pakistan “a terrorist state,” turning a blind eye to the atrocities of the Indian forces in Occupied Kashmir.
The valley has been under curfew since July 8, and during the time over 100 Kashmiri protesters were killed by the forces while thousands injured by the palette guns.
