In the report, the BSF has said that probably the Pakistan got baffled after their defeat in Hockey match at the Asian Games and that is why out of frustration they acted in this manner. The Indian force says that this could be a reason because the firing started just after their defeat at the hand of India.
After sixteen years of long wait, the Indian hockey team won gold at the Asiad recently. India's feat is extraordinary because this was the first time they had beaten Pakistan in the final. In a thrilling match, both teams were tied at 1-1 at the end of full time. Finally, India got penalty shootout which it won 4-2 and hence defeated Pakistan.
More than 60 BSFposts and 80 villages have been targetted by Pakistani troops recently. Eight people have been killed and over 50 got injured in this unproved firing.
Meanwhile leaders from both sides continue to react sharply. After Defence and Home Minister gave stern reply to Pakistan recently, Prime Minister Narendra Modi also spoke assertively on the matter on Thursday.
Giving reply to Opposition's criticism that he is not acting on the matter, Modi while speaking in rally said, "Our soldiers have replied to Pakistan's aggression with courage. We should not politicise the issue".
Earlier, threatening Pakistan, Defence Minister Arun Jaitley said. "If they persists with adventurism, India will make it unaffordable for them". Home Minister Rajnath Singh had said that they should understand that times have changed now.
But Pakistan didn't recede back. Their Defence Minister, Khawaja Asif said on Thursday that Pakistan was fully capable of responding to Indian aggression at the Line of Cotnrol (Loc) and working boundary. In a statement, Asif said, "Pakistan did not want an atmosphere of confrontation on the borders of two neighbouring nuclear states."
It is pitiable that Pakistan is vengeful after the defeat in a game. The defeat should be taken with good sportsmanship spirit. After all it is only a game and it should not be made a prestige issue.
