Absurd to compare India’s surgical strikes with Israel

PM Modi

Modi government is going ahead floating new theories and his ministers are giving new twists to the cross-border strikes and thereafter deciding to revise Indus water treaty as a matter of right, Pakistan has warned to adopt legal course against India in case any bilateral pact between both the countries is breached by New Delhi.


They have further threatened that surgical strikes will be replied in a befitting manner while Indus will be taken to the court of law in the international court of justice.


In his over enthusiasm, Narendra Modi appears to have gone crazy while comparing the Indian army action targeting terrorists along the line of Control  with Israel’s full fledged aggression against the people of Palestine and Lebanon.

“Our army’s valour is being discussed across the country these days we used to hear earlier that Israel has done this the nation has seen that the Indian Army is no less than anybody,”Modi said.


Israel army action against Palestine have been a matter of international condemnation and even Israel fails to come out clean from their acts.


There is a stark difference in both these cases as Israel is an occupying power in Palestine and India has not attracted such a status.


To keep the issue alive till the elections in Uttar Pradesh,Modi is unwittingly complicating India’s position before the world.


While Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar blindly following Modi is also treading into same trap.Thus,it will be better for them to keep India’s image clean by refraining from such comparisons.

The army had carried out “target specific, limited calibre, counter-terrorist operations across the LOC in the past too but this is the first time the government has gone public about it ,a Parliamentary panel was told contradicting the Defence Minister’s claim.


Such irresponsible comments will make India a laughing stock in the international arena.
