it is quite obvious why porkis have opened front on indian side... the political turmoil going on in porkistan compels them to divert attention to india. porkistan is on the boil, they can explode anytime with president PM and CMs all being targeted by court or army. are kangressi so stupid not to understand what is going on? india must demonstrate firmly once and for all that porkis can't divert attention from their internal conflict by making it conflict against india.
"He indicated that engagement with Pakistan would be impacted although there will be no total freeze."
Why not try "total freeze"? In our personal life, supposing we had a pesky mischief making neighbor, we would very likely just cut off all relationship (of course if we ran into each other at some venue by chance we would be civilized with a curt hello and a stiff handshake but not much more).
The tough words need to be backed by lodging a case at the International Criminal Court (ICC) against the Pakistani Army Officers commanding the troops who were under their command when these acts of barbarity were committed. Beheading and other forms of mutilation are against the Geneva Convention. Secondly, an international warrant for their arrest should also be issued by both India and the ICC. If the ICC does not issue a warrant, then India must insist friendly countries such as the UK and USA to take action when these officers travel abroad to the UK or to the US whether for personal or official business.
Those terrorists who have been convicted or are wanted for acts of terror and are contemplating travel or currently residing in the Gulf region should be subjected to the "Israeli" form of justice. That is, they need to know that India will find ways to wreak justice upon them; and that third party countries in which they are residing or travelling cannot not offer them protection from justice. As well, when carrying out these acts of justice, India should not feel beholden to the sensitivities of third-party countries harbouring convicted terrorists. Friendly countries don't harbour terrorists or criminals, they turn them in.
If India wishes to be taken seriously on the international stage, then it must demonstrate seriousness of purpose in bringing convicted terrorists to book.
Good statement from the PM at last.
"He said, "Those responsible for this crime will have to be brought to book" and hoped "Pakistan realises this".
Have we brought the culprits of Bombay train blasts to book? It has been 8 years.
