Seeking to avenge the death of 18 soldiers in Uri, a group of youngsters in Uttar Pradesh’s Sambhal district have written a letter in blood to Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Upset at the government’s diplomatic response to Pakistan, the youths urged the PM to take concrete action against Islamabad. The group also expressed dissatisfaction over Nawaz Sharif’s speech at the UN, where the Pakistani Prime Minister had invoked the name of slain terrorist Burhan Wani.
Meanwhile, a group of lawyers staged a protest against Pakistan at the Wagah Border. The lawyers threatened Islamabad with dire consequences, saying that they won’t hesitate to take up guns to retaliate to Pak-sponsored aggression.
Open insinuations, street demonstrations and letters written in blood – such has been the chequered nature of India’s response to the terror attack on the Army camp in Uri. While the Uri offensive calls for a measured and strategic response from New Delhi, are Indians falling prey to a jingoistic version of nationalism?
