Hardoi: In the wake of the escalation in terrorist strikes along the Line of Control (LoC), Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Tuesday took potshots at Pakistan and dared the Nawaz Sharif government not to indulge in proxy war but have the guts to take India head on.
Rajnath, who addressed a rally in Hardoi district of Uttar Pradesh, said, "If someone wants to fight then it must be done boldly rather than attacking from behind. There is nothing like good or bad terrorist, a terrorist is a terrorist.The courageous is one who is ready to fight face to face."
The Home Minister also expressed his ire over the recent terror attacks in Jammu and Kashmir.
As per reports, the casualties suffered by the Indian Army in Jammu and Kashmir in 2016 alone is almost equal to the total combined number of soldiers killed in the last two years.
On Saturday, three soldiers were killed while two jawans were injured after terrorists from across the border opened fire on an army convoy in Pampore in Pulwana district on Srinagar-Jammu National Highway.
The attack had taken place at the place crowded with civilians at Kadlabal in Pampore town of Pulwama district this afternoon.
