Insight: India’s first visible counter strike — Pak envoy summoned and warned

By NewsX Bureau | Updated: 21 September 2016 , 10:52 pm
Hours before Pak Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is to address the UNGA, India has made its first visibly decisive move by summoning the Pakistan envoy Abdul Basit to the MEA. In the course of the meeting Basit has been presented five seperate bits of evidence tying the Uri attack to perpetrators originating from across the LoC.
 
Foreign Secretary Jaishankar also ordered Pakistan to seize terror activities from its soil against India. While India’s first move has suggested great restraint a US-based pollster has said that Indians in general are expecting a lot more from the government. In fact 62% Indians are demanding military action.
 
While the message delivered today is terse, it doesn’t communicate the urgency that has been expressed by top politicians over the Uri attack. Many are feeling a little overwhelmed.
 
Could India have done more today? And if it has exercised restraint why isn’t someone telling us why?
