Venkaiah Naidu hits out at Pakistan, warns Islamabad against 'forgetting 1971 defeat'
Hitting out at Pakistan for 'aiding and abetting terror', NDA's vice-presidential candidate M Venkaiah Naidu on Sunday reminded it not to forget what happened in 1971
New Delhi: Hitting out at Pakistan for "aiding and abetting terror", NDA's vice-presidential candidate M Venkaiah Naidu on Sunday reminded it not to forget what happened in 1971, in a reference to the Bangladesh war, in which it faced a humiliating defeat.
Naidu was addressing the annual Kargil Parakram Parade, held in remembrance of soldiers killed in the 1999 war with Pakistan in Jammu and Kashmir's Kargil sector.
"Our neighbour should understand that aiding and abetting terror will not help them, they should recall what happened in 1971. Terrorism is the enemy of humanity, it has no religion," he said.
Criticising Pakistan for "mixing terrorism with religion" as its State policy, the former Union minister asserted that Kashmir is an integral part of India and "not an inch" of it will be ceded.
He also urged Pakistan to shun the path of confrontation.
"We are a peace loving people. We never attacked any country. We don't want war, we don't want confrontation. We want to have peace and good relations with our neighbours, but they should also reciprocate," Naidu said.
