Coming out in defence of Army, protesters said the officer was simply doing his duty.
After losing soldiers and civilians, the government and its assurance to the people of India that effective measures were on the cards has failed to measure the damage being done to the morale of the troops deployed in the areas affected by insurgency,” Protesters said.
Protesters demanded that Indian forces once again carry out a surgical strike like the one undertaken to avenge the attack on the Army camp in Uri that left 19 soldiers dead. It is appropriate time to strike back to Pakistan and teach a lesson once for all.
