Addressing a rally in Jammu’s Kathua region, Singh said, Pakistan has already been split into two parts and if it will not mend its ways it will soon split into ten parts.
Susmita kaul | HENB | Kathua (J&K) | Dec 11, 2016:: Indian Home Minister Rajnath Singh today accused Pakistan of “conspiring” to divide India on “religious lines” but said it will not succeed.
“Pakistan is conspiring to divide India on religious lines but it will not succeed. We were divided in 1947 on religious basis. We have not been able to forget that… All Indians are brothers, whether they are born from the womb of a Hindu mother or a Muslim mother,” he said addressing a Martyrs’ Day function in Kathua district.
Mr. Singh said nowhere in the world 72 sects of Islam live together peacefully. But, India is the only country where all the Muslims live together with peace and prosperity.
He said that as the Home Minister of the country, he wanted to make it clear that India is committed to taking along everybody and moving ahead on the path of development.
He also offered India’s cooperation to Pakistan to eradicate the menace of terrorism from its soil.
“If Pakistan is serious about eradicating terrorism but is incapable of doing that and wants cooperation, we are ready to help it eradicate terrorism from there,” the minister said.
He said, “We want to live in peace with Pakistan but it has indulged in sponsoring a proxy war against India.
Every Prime Minister of India wanted to mend relations with Pakistan but it did not understand the language of peace and attacked India four times. But our brave soldiers gave them a befitting reply.”
After repeated defeats, Pakistan has understood that it cannot defeat India in wars so it has resorted to sponsoring proxy war, he said, adding that “terrorism is the weapon of weak and not the brave“.
Reminding Pakistan of its defeat in previous wars with India, Singh said,” They have attacked us four times and lost always. They have realised that they cannot defeat us and that is why they are indulging in terror activities. Pakistan should understand that terrorism is not the weapon of brave, but of cowards.”
Talking about the repeated violation of ceasefire by Pakistani forces, the home minister mentioned that even after the Kargil war “then prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee extended hand of friendship towards Pakistan. But they chose to violate ceasefire. Our forces will not fire first, but they will respond when provoked.”
Singh also said, Pakistan has already been split into two parts and if it will not mend its ways it will soon be split into ten parts for its default Jihadi Terrorism.
Mr. Singh said that while the entire world was concerned about the spread of ISIS, the terrorist organisation has failed to spread its roots in India.
The home minister also reviewed the security situation of the state, particularly along the Line of Control and International Border.
