Jammu, November 30
Soldiers were seething with anger and bursting to take revenge against an invisible enemy after having seen seven of their colleagues dead at the hands of three terrorists . These feelings overwhelmed all soldiers far and wide across the 16 Corps ( White Knight) jurisdiction in Jammu region . The Corps’ troops are responsible for facing the external aggression on borders and tackling terrorism in entire Jammu region, barring the international border .
Pakistan’s hand was clear in infiltration at the international border in which all the three terrorists were killed by the BSF in Samba sector , and so was in the “ fidayeen” attack in Nagrota where Indian army lost seven of its men.
The anger was genuine because time and again the terrorists have succeeding in attacking their camps and each time they leave their colleagues dead and a trail of tragedy and a host of questions . This time, what happened on Tuesday, the army appeared to have lulled itself that Pakistan would not dare to mount any attack because of the intensified counter offensive by the Indian army at the LoC last week, in which, Minister for Defence Manohar Parrikar claimed that “ Pakistan pleaded that we stop our offensive.” But, it should not have been forgotten that Pakistan has more than LoC to cause trouble in India, especially Jammu and Kashmir.
This is what angered the soldiers more, for they knew that the Nagrota attack was not the isolated incident, there may be more and they would have to be prepared with the response. And, the only response to this, they concluded, according to sources, was to decimate the terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir. There has to be an all out offensive where terrorists should be killed at the LoC and their hideouts, instead of allowing them to gain time and space to “ hit us in our camps.” These cries for revenge were heard across all the army camps in Jammu .
Now it remains to be seen as to what would be the next move of the army, and how would army trace this attack to Pakistan and seek persecution of the perpetrators sitting in Pakistan . In the past all such attempts have got stuck in the denial wall of Pakistan.
