There can be no comparison as our brave Armymen are sacrificing their lives for the country."Does he know what goes into making an Indian soldier," the MIM leader asked.Owaisi remarked that if RSS chief is so confident of their ability, he should lead them at the border.On terrorist attack on Army camp in Jammu, Owaisi said that "we the failed to learn lessons from similar attacks in the past".He said the terrorists had carried out attack in Sunjunwan area in 2003 and lessons were not learnt from Pathankot, Uri and Nagrota attacks.He asked BJP to clarify where is the responsibility for this lies. "Is it not the failure of IB as well," he asked.Stating that out of seven brave soldiers who laid down their lives, five were Kashmiri Muslims, Owaisi said why those TV channels which question the nationalism of Indian and Kashmiri Muslims were silent.Owaisi said even Prime Minister has not tweeted over the Jammu attack.On Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti calling for talks with Pakistan, he said Modi should respond."BJP is sharing power with PDP in Jammu and Kashmir and when their Chief Minister has raised this demand, it should come out and say what it thinks," he added.On Ram Rajya Ratha Yatra being launched from Ayodhya on Tuesday, Owaisi said this was aimed at diverting people's attention from real issues like jobs, GST and increasing terrorist incursions.--IANSms/vd
