Pak will have to observe black day for 365 days, taunts Shiv Sena

New Delhi, July 19 (ANI): The Shiv Sena on Monday unleashed a belligerent attack on Pakistan over the loss of innocent lives in the recent unrest in Kashmir Valley and said Islamabad will have to observe a 'black day' throughout the year as the Indian Army is so strong that it will gun down a terrorist like Burhan Wani every day.

Asserting that India should not hold dialogue with Pakistan, Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut said the only way to restore peace in the valley is by increasing interaction with the people of Kashmir.

"Pakistan celebrating 'black day' over the killing of terrorist Burhan Wani clears its intensions. I will say that our army men are doing a good job and like this they will be killing a Burhan Wani everyday that Pakistan will have to observe 'black day' throughout the year," said Raut.

The Shiv Sena leader further said that India should not talk to Pakistan on the Kashmir issue.

"Our Prime Minister made many efforts, he went and met Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif but nothing made a difference. Now, I believe we should directly talk to the people of Kashmir. We will have to visit Kashmir and build a contact with the people for their betterment and development," he added.

Last week, Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had announced that his country would observe a black day in light of the worst outbreak of violence on the Indian side of Kashmir.

Curfew and restrictions continue across Kashmir. Two civilians were killed in retaliatory firing last evening after locals clashed with armed forced in Qazigund area of South Kashmir.

With this, the death toll of civilians has reached around 40. (ANI)
