Relations with Pak will never be same: Ravi Shankar Prasad post Uri attack
New Delhi, [India] Sept. 20 (ANI): Asserting that no compromise will be made with regard to national security, Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad has said that relations with Pakistan will never be the same.

Prasad told ANI, "After such a brutal attack, relations with Pakistan will never be same. The way our innocent jawans were cruelly killed, things will never be same. Pakistan's involvement is evident, we have seized arms, and then, we have mobile phones with Pakistan signs on them."

"The DGMO has also said that the Jaish-e-Mohammad was behind this attack and this terrorist group is again backed by Pakistan. So for India's security, the government will take the needed steps. A mature decision will be taken in this regard. No compromise will be made in regard to India's security," he added.

After giving an assurance of going after the perpetrators of the deadly Uri attack, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday gave the green signal to diplomatically isolate Pakistan at every international grouping.

India is to present all actionable evidence against Pakistan to international bodies if required.

Evidence of Pakistan's hand in Uri attack , including GPS tracker movements that go back to starting point in Pakistan, Pashto literature and Pakistan Army marked arms will be given to Islamabad at the DGMO level, sources add.

Sources said External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj will strongly emphasize on Pakistan's involvement in the attack in her UNGA speech on September 26.

This development comes after the Prime Minister yesterday chaired a high-level meeting at his official residence at 7 Race Course Road here.

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh, Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, Army Chief Dalbir Singh, National Security Advisor Ajit Doval and other officials were present in the meeting.

Pakistan has rejected New Delhi's claims of Islamabad's involvement in the Uri terror attack, saying the latter has a traditional tendency to point fingers at the former after each terror attack on Indian soil.

"Pointing fingers at Pakistan has become a traditional tendency of India after each terrorist attack," the Dawn quoted Pakistan Foreign Office spokesperson Nafees Zakaria, as saying.

"In the past many Indians were involved in the terrorist acts for which India had blamed Pakistan," he asserted.

Director General of Military operation Lt. Ranbir Singh earlier this week said that the four terrorists, who attacked the military base in Jammu and Kashmir's Uri, belonged to Pakistan's banned terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM). (ANI)
