New Delhi, Oct 01 (ANI): Kashmiri activist, Sushil Pandit on Saturday said Pakistan is paying the price of sowing discord.

"Pakistan is paying the price of its adventures and sowing discord. Pakistan is paying the price of using terror as a part of its state policy." Pandit said days after the Indian Army confirmed surgical strikes across the Line of Control (LoC).

Pandit said, "India has to be on guard, India has to watch very carefully because Pakistan is not a responsible state. It is likely to escalate, even at a considerable cost to itself. So, Pakistan cannot dictate terms on the kind of security we will make for ourselves and we will have to be on guard because of Pakistan's track record."

Hafiz Saeed, chief of to Jamaat-Ud-Dawah (JUD), an Islamic charity linked to the outlawed militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba (Let) had earlier threatened that Pakistan will show India what surgical threats are. Speaking to ANI, Pandit said, "We cannot take any threats lightly, but at the same time the likes of Hafiz Saeed will never be allowed to dictate terms."

On the United States slamming terror, he said, "This is after decades of conducting diplomacy, after decades of restraint on behalf of victims of Pakistan terror, they have now begun to feel the pinch. It is just a matter of beginning right now, it will go very far."

The Indian Army on Wednesday said that it conducted surgical strikes on terror launch pads across the Line of Control (LoC) in response to the terrorist attack at Uri sector. Two Pakistani soldiers and over 30 terrorists were reportedly killed in the attack.

Director General of Military Operations, Lieutenant General Ranbir Singh said that the motive of the operation was to hit out at the terrorists who were planning to infiltrate into the Indian Territory.

Lt General Singh informed that significant casualty was caused to terrorists during the operation.

The DGMO said it is a matter of serious concern that there have been many infiltration bids by terrorists at the LoC and it was reflected in the terror attacks in Poonch and Uri on 11th and 18th of this month. (ANI)
