Give free hand to Army in Kashmir, says Togadia

| | Chandigarh

The Army should be given a “free hand” to deal with those fomenting trouble in Kashmir, VHP president Pravin Togadia said on Sunday.

He made the remarks while addressing VHP workers here.

“In Kashmir even our forces are not safe, then what to talk of safety of citizens there. I have given a suggestion that those who pelt stones at our Army, the Army should be given orders to bombard those. The Army should be given a free hand to deal with the problem,” he told reporters.

Referring to 1971 Indo-Pak war, Togadia praised the then prime minister Indira Gandhi’s bold leadership.

“I have said it is time to fight a war against Pakistan. If Indira Gandhi could bifurcate Pakistan into two then and take more than 90,000 Pakistani soldiers as prisoners of war, now it is time to break Pakistan into five parts and capture one lakh Pak soldiers,” Togadia said.
