PM Modi's statement did not name any country but it was a clear reference to Pakistan, which has called these remarks "provocative" and "myopic" and said such rhetoric only "impedes the prospects of constructive engagement in the long term".

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh had also recently said made a similar statement, wherein he said India will enter Pakistan to eliminate anyone who escapes over the border after trying to carry out terrorist activities in the country,

"Koi bhi terrorist hamare parosi desh se yadi hamare Bharat ko disturb karneki koshish karega, yahan par yadi atankwadi harkate karega, toh uska muh tod jawab denge [If terrorists from the neighbouring country try to disturb the peace in India or try to carry out terror activities, we will give them a befitting reply]," Rajnath Singh said in an interview with CNN News18.

“Yadi woh bhag kar Pakistan mein jayega, toh Pakistan mein ghus kar marenge [If they run away to Pakistan, we will enter Pakistan to kill them],” Rajnath Singh had said.

Rajnath Singh's statement was in response to a question on a report by British newspaper The Guardian which claimed that Indian intelligence agencies had killed about 20 people in Pakistan since 2020 as part of a broader plan to eliminate terrorists residing on foreign soil.
