New Delhi/Srinagar [India] May 1 (ANI): The Communist Party of India (Marxist) on Monday termed the mutilation of two Indian Army soldiers as intolerable and asked the Centre to act sternly against Pakistan. "This is something which is not acceptable. These incidents can't be tolerated. The government has to answer this. How this can be achieved, the government, if wants, can discuss with us," CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury told ANI. The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has called on the international community to declare Pakistan a 'terrorist nation' and asserted that India would give a befitting reply for the barbaric act. "The Pakistani forces once again violated the international treaties and the way they violated the worst kind of human rights and laws is very unfortunate. We condemn such barbaric acts. International powers should take actions on this and should declare Pakistan a terrorist nation," BJP leader Ravindra Raina told ANI. BJP leader Nalin Kohli told ANI, "Pakistan is increasingly becoming from its act, a state which appears to be where barbarism and inhumanity is the norm. We are confident that the statement of the Army sums up what is to be done. This despicable act will not go unpunished. Prime Minister Modi ji, the Army and soldiers have free hand to do what they deem appropriate." Pakistan mutilated the bodies of two Indian soldiers in Jammu and Kashmir's Krishna Ghati sector. The Indian Army in a tweet said,"Pak Army carried out unprovoked Rocket and Mortar firing on two forward posts on the line of control in Krishna Ghati Sector. Simultaneously a BAT action was launched on a patrol operating in between the two posts. In a unsoldierly act by the Pak Army the bodies of two of our soldiers in the patrol were mutilated . Such despicable act of Pakistan Army will be appropriately responded." (ANI)
