Anti-Pak protests rock Jammu over Uri terror attack


Tawi, Sept 19: Massive protests were held here today against the terrorist
attack on an army base in North 's Uri town in which 18 soldiers were killed with protestors burning Pakistani flags and its effigies.

College and university students, lawyers, political parties, traders and various other organisations took out separate protest rallies in solidarity with the army and against the Pakistan for “aiding and abetting terrorism”.

Jammu and Kashmir Panthers Party (JKNPP) activists took out a
rally from the Press Club area of the city and held protest
demonstrations amid anti-Pakistan slogans. They also burnt down the
effigy of Pakistan and demanded the country should be declared as
“terrorist state”.

“We demand that Pakistan should be declared as a terrorist state.
Pakistan and its militants are attacking security forces and creating
unrest in Kashmir valley. They are responsible for terrorism in Jammu and
Kashmir,” JKNPP Chairman Harsh Dev Singh told reporters.

Dubbing the neighbouring country as a “threat to the peace in South
Asian region”, JKNNP leader castigated Pakistan for pushing fidayeens'
to carry out terror attacks on the security personnel in Jammu and
Kashmir, besides “endorsing support to secessionists in the Valley”.

Singh lambasted Pakistan for its “malicious and mischievous” designs
in sponsoring militant attacks on defence installations in the state and
abetting terror attacks across the country. Condemning the attack on
the Army Brigade headquarters in Uri, he accused Pakistan for “pushing
militants into our territory to vitiate peace and harmony in the state
and the country”.

The JKNPP leader said Pakistan's “notoriety” had now assumed “alarming
proportions” as Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had on the eve of Eid
announced “to continue its support to secessionists and other
disruptive forces in Kashmir”.

Singh said the statement was followed by the most “cowardly and
deadliest” terror attack on the Indian Army in last two decades and
unveiled the “nefarious designs of the belligerent neighbour to
destabilise ”.

He alleged Pakistan has not been “mending ways” despite repeated
warnings at appropriate forums and held the “rogue country responsible
for the ongoing mayhem in Kashmir valley which had left thousands of security
personnel injured”.

Singh said it was high time that India should launch a “full throttle
campaign” against Pakistan at international level for latter's
interference in India's internal matters. The activists of right wing
party Shiv Sena also held protest at Bari Brahmana and Sunderbani area
against Pakistan. The Protest was led by state president of the party
Dimpy Kohli.

Speaking on the occasion, Kohli targeted Pakistan for its “mischievous
designs” in sponsoring militant attacks on Indian defence bases,
besides aiding secessionists in Kashmir. He asked Central government
to “act tough and give a befitting reply to Pakistan without wasting

National Conference Student Union also held protest demonstration and
accused BJP of “just giving statements and not doing enough to stop
such attacks”.

ABVP organised a ‘Tiranga Rally' from the Jammu university up to
Vikram chowk and more than 500 students and scholars participated in
it. The students of MAM, SPMC and GGMC colleges carried out separate
rallies against Pakistan and burnt Pak flags amid anti-Pakistan
