New Delhi: Union home minister Rajnath Singh on Sunday said if a need arises, India can attack its enemies not only on its soil but also in a foreign territory.
His remark comes one month after five India Army commandos crossed the LoC in Poonch and killed three Pakistani soldiers and shattered a post.
It was an avenging attack, where four Indian Army personnel were killed by a Border Action Team of the Pakistan Army in Rajouri.
“A few months ago, Pakistan, in an act of cowardice, attacked and martyred 17 of our jawans. Prime Minister Narendra Modi consulted all of us on this serious issue, and the Indian Army entered the Pakistani area and killed the militants,” Singh said at a public meeting here.
“India’s image in the world has become that of a strong nation and we have given a strong message to the world that we can attack our enemies not only on our soil, but also in their territory. India has developed this power,” he said.
