Indian Home Minister Rajnath Singh has said Pakistan would “soon be in ten pieces” if cross-border terrorism does not come to an end, Times of India reported.
“Pakistan has been divided into 2 countries (in 1971). If it does not stop cross-border terrorism, it will soon be in 10 pieces,” Singh said while speaking to a gathering in India-held Kashmir’s Kathua district.
Accusing Pakistan of “encouraging terrorism” to harm India, the Indian home minister said, “Perhaps it was not able to understand the fact that terrorism is not a weapon of the brave but of cowards.”
“Our government will never let the nation bow its head before anyone,” Rajnath Singh said.
Speaking in reference to September’s attack on the Uri base camp in India-held Kashmir, Singh said “You have seen how they cowardly attacked our jawans but after that our jawans did a wonderful job.
India initiated a diplomatic drive to isolate Pakistan after blaming it for the Sept 18 attack on the Uri army camp in IHK which killed 18 soldiers a claim Pakistan has rejected.
Tensions between the South Asian rivals have been high since an Indian crackdown on dissent in IHK following the killing by Indian forces of Burhan Wani, a young separatist leader, in July.
