New Delhi: Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar spoke tough while addressing army officers on the Pathankot terror attack.In clear terms the Defence Minister said that the ones who harm us should be given the same pain.

“This should not be taken as government thinking. I always believe anyone who harms you, he understands the same language. The time and place should be of our choosing,” Parrikar said at a seminar to mark the 68th Army Day adding that if an organisation or an individual harms this country, then that organisation or individual must receive the same pain, failing which he will always enjoy giving us pain.

Seven military personnel were martyred and another 20 injured when six terrorists crossed the border and launched the massive assault on the air force base in Punjab’s Pathankot in the early hours of January 2.

India says the Pakistan-based terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed orchestrated the attack, which came just a week after PM Modi made an unscheduled visit to Lahore and met Nawaz Sharif. After the attack, the PM conveyed to Mr Sharif that India wants to see urgent action.

Evidence handed over by India to Pakistan includes intercepts of phone calls made by the terrorists to their handlers in Pakistan. Ammunition and other equipment recovered from them after they were killed were made in Pakistan.
