Calicut (Kerala) [India], Sept. 24 (ANI): Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders on Saturday hailed Prime Minister Narendra Modi's speech on Pakistan as "brave", saying he had shown "Pakistan a mirror".

"He has shown a mirror to the Pakistani people. Before Independence, India and Pakistan were one, but today we can see the difference between India and Pakistan," BJP leader and Minister of Information Technology Ravi Shankar Prasad told ANI.

"Today,Indian IT exports has reached eight lakh crores and Pakistan is just exporting terrorism. Pakistan is the hub of terrorism, which is very unfortunate. And today, I'm proud of our Prime Minister," he added.

He said after the Uri attack, the whole nation supports Prime Minister Modi and there will be no compromise with the security of the nation.

"Today, Pakistan has been told in strong words that India will not tolerate terrorism," said Prasad.

Echoing similar sentiments, BJP leader Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore said, "In very clear words, the Prime Minister has told the world that we will not forget our martyrs and if Pakistan wants war, then we are ready for war for the development of our nation."

"He also told the people of Pakistan that their leaders are misleading them and it is possible that within a few years the people themselves will stand against these leaders. The Prime Minister has said we are ready for any challenge," added Rathore.

Yesterday, while addressing a public rally in Kozhikode, Kerala, the Prime Minister launched a scathing attack on Pakistan, and said the people of Pakistan should ask their leaders that India and Pakistan got freedom in the same year, but India exports software and our country is exporting terrorists.

"India has never bowed down in front of terrorism nor will it. Our 18 soldiers sacrificed their lives because of terrorists exported by our neighbouring country. There's anger in the entire country after the Uri attack, and India will never forget this," he said.

"I want to tell people of Pakistan that your leaders are misleading you by talking on Kashmir. They can't manage what they have, and they are talking about Kashmir. You can imagine that our neighbour was successful in one incident, and if they would have succeeded in the other 17 times, what would have happened?" Prime Minister Modi added. (ANI)
