India exports software, Pakistan exports terror: PM Modi’s blistering response to Uri attack

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday lauched a blistering attack on Pakistan in his first public address after the Uri terror attack. He was speaking at a Bharatiya Janata Party rally in Kozhikode, where he’d attended the party’s National Council meet.
Modi said Pakistan – which is widely seen as being the source of the deadly attack – “wanted bloodshed, killing of people and terror.” In his speech, the PM also addressed the Pakistani people directly. He told them that while both India and Pakistan attained Independence at the same time, India exported software, but Pakistan exported terror.
Speaking about the Uri attack, he said, “There’s anger in entire country after the Uri attack. 18 of our soldiers sacrificed their lives after our neighbour exported terrorists there,” he continued. Saying the whole nation was “very proud” of the Indian armed forces, the PM issued a grim warning to Pakistan: “The sacrifice of our 18 jawans will not go in vain. We will leave no stone unturned to isolate Pakistan in the world,” he said.
Referring to the many infiltration bids foiled by security forces in Jammu and Kashmir in recent months, he said, “In the last few months, our neighbour tried to destroy our country by exporting terrorists more than 17 times, but our army defeated them. More than 110 terrorists have been killed in the past few months by Indian army while they were trying to infiltrate,” he added.
He then issued his stirring challenge to Pakistanis, asking them if they could find solutions to development issues faster than India could. “I want to tell the people of Pakistan, India is ready to fight you. If you have the strength, come forward to fight against poverty. Let’s see who wins. Let’s see who is able to defeat poverty and illiteracy first, Pakistan or India,” he said.
He taunted the Pakistani government, asking, “The leaders of (our) neighbouring country used to say that they will fight for 1000 years, but where are they lost now? I want to inform Pakistan that before 1947 even your leaders used to salute this land.” And he told Pakistan to look in its own backyard
before coveting the territory of others. “Pakistan is aiming for Kashmir. They should first look at the land they have already captured – PoK, Gilgit and Balochistan.” He asked the Pakistani people to ask their government the following question: “You can’t handle Gilgit, PoK, Balochistan which are with you. Then why mislead people by talking about Kashmir?”
And he made this remarkable claim: “A day will come when the people of Pakistan will go against their own government to fight terrorism.”
The PM said that while the 21st century could very well become Asia’s century, there was one Asian country (an obvious reference to Pakistan) whose “aim” was to prevent that from happening, and was “associated with terrorism.”
“The question is not only about India. This is one country which is exporting terrorism everywhere,” he added. “Whenever news about terrorism comes, news also comes that the terrorist either came from there or – like Osama did – went there after the act,” he explained.
He told his audience that India would never bow down before terrorism. “Terrorism is the enemy of humanity. We need to join our hands to defeat terrorism,” he said.
Before he began his scathing attack on Pakistan, the PM also hailed the efforts of BJP party workers in the state. “Jan Sangh and BJP Karyakartas from Kerala have seen and faced so much. Even today, the party isn’t in power here, but they continue serving,” he said. He assured party workers that their hard work and sacrifice would “never go in vain.”
In his speech, the PM also paid tribute to the state he was visiting. After beginning his speech with a few lines in Malayalam, he said, “When we think of Kerala, we think of God’s own country; it gives an impression of purity and holiness.”
