Reacting sharply to Pakistan killing two soldiers and beheading another near LoC, senior BJP leader Subramanian Swamy has demanded that the neighbouring country should be divided into four parts.
Talking to reporters he said India should go to war with Pakistan and annihilate it completely.
This was for the first time that any politician from the ruling BJP has spoke about war.
On November 22, Pakistan Army-backed terrorists beheaded one soldier while trying to infiltrate inside the Indian territory. It was second such incident in a month.
Border Action Teams of the Pakistan Army is said to be working with militants from the Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jaish-e-Mohammed to target Indian positions.
To avenge the killing of three of its soldiers Indian Army had launched a massive fire assault against Pakistan along the Line of Control (LoC). In this counter offensive by India, Pakistan claimed that it has resulted in death of three soldiers and 10 civilians. Pakistani alleged that many civilians were injured when Indian fire hit a bus on the Neelum Valley road in the Dudhnial sector in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.
In unprovoked firing, Indian officials said two BSF troopers and three soldiers sustained minor injuries in Rajouri and Poonch districts. Pakistan has also targeted army posts in Bhimber Gali, Krishna Ghati and Naushera sectors of the LoC.
Following the tensions across the Line of Control (LoC), Pakistan Director Generals of Military Operations (DGMO) also called his Indian counterpart on Novemebr 23 and spoke on ceasefire violations and infiltration attempts.
While Pakistan DGMO Major General Sahir Shamshad Mirza informed about civilian casualties on his side caused by Indian firing, Indian DGMO Lt Gen Ranbir Singh raised the issue of infiltration attempts by terrorists from Pakistan into Jammu and Kashmir and “unethical act of mutilation of the body of Indian soldiers”.
In a statement, Sharif termed the Indian firing across the Line of Control (LoC), as naked aggression and said India has failed to comprehend the gravity of the situation.
