Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been assertive about where India stands on global terror attacks, however, the situation in Kashmir is steadily worsening, said the Shiv Sena on Wednesday.

The party’s statement comes after Modi, during a visit to America, said India’s surgical strikes showed the world that our country can exercise self control, but also show its might.

What are surgical strikes?
  • Surgical strikes were launched on September 29 last year as a response to an attack by Pakistan-based terrorists on an Indian Army base in Kashmir’s Uri. As many as 19 Indian soldiers lost their lives in the attack.

The party added that even as Modi tries to change the face of India globally, internal security is a cause for concern.

“Modi’s statement on surgical strikes carries a lot of weight. However, even after the strikes, terrorist activities from Pakistan have continued and our soldiers are getting martyred,” read an editorial in party mouthpiece Saamana.

During Eid, Pakistani flags were hoisted and pro-Pakistani slogans were raised in Kashmir, it claimed.

“US President Donald Trump has assured India of its support to counter terrorism. Former presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton made the same promises. However, it needs to be ascertained how much they actually helped,” read the editorial.

The party added that lakhs of Indians were on the verge of losing their jobs in the US owing to Trump’s new policies. “We hope that the Modi-Trump meet leads to a solution,” it said.

“Until now, Chinese troops would enter Arunachal Pradesh and Leh. Now, they have entered Sikkim and destroyed two Indian bunkers. This is shocking,” it said.
