India will not fire first but will not count its bullet if Pakistan provokes: Rajnath Singh

Delhi: In a stern statement, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh said on Sunday that India will not fire first, but if the bullet is fired from Pakistan’s side then India will not count its bullet.

“India has conveyed to the world that it is a strong country and the forces that disturb her peace will not be spared,” Singh added, as per ANI.

On the other hand, Indian envoy to Islamabad had said on February 10 in Karachi that India wanted Pakistan to renounce violence and take “strong preventive action” against terrorists and extremists without discrimination.

“India wishes Pakistan well in its nation building process. India wishes to see a stable, moderate and prosperous Pakistan which is at peace with itself, at peace with its neighbours and at peace with the world,” India High Commissioner Gautam Bambawale had said at the inauguration of the 8th Karachi Literature Festival.

“India wishes to see a Pakistan which abjures violence and takes strong preventive action against terrorists and extremists. India wishes to see a Pakistan which does not distinguish between good and bad terrorists but instead moves against all such elements irrespective of whom their hatred is directed against,” he had further said in a statement, as per PTI.

Tensions have been running high between India and Pakistan since an attack on an Indian army base in Uri on September 18 last year by Pakistan-based terrorists.
