Uri attack: Twitterati ask PM to shed ‘strategic restraint’, let Pak ‘have it’

An Indian Army brigade headquarters in Jammu and Kashmir’s Uri was attacked by armed militants on Sunday. Four militants were confirmed killed after the hours-long battle, which also claimed the lives of 17 soldiers — making it the most deadly attack in the northern region of the state in recent years.
Though the nationality of the assailants was yet to be confirmed, many were quick to point fingers at Pakistan on Twitter, also calling on Prime Minister Narendra Modi to take retaliatory action. Others attempted to justify the attack as a reaction to alleged rights violations in Kashmir and the PM’s overtures about Balochistan.

India's national security has been seriously compromised on account of failed foreign policy and a weak, incompetent leadership. #UriAttack

If Pakistan thinks #UriAttack will have usual Indian non-response, it's delusional. This India has moved on from old strategic restraint

From the other side of the border, some Pakistanis justified the attack as a reaction to India’s attempts to quell protests in Kashmir.

Indian army is good only in abusing and killing unarmed people. They lack skills to face combatants.. #UriAttack

The timing of the attack — when India planned to raise the issue of state sponsorship of terrorism at the United Nations — was also called into question.

The #Uri attack comes as Pakistan is ready to raise #Kashmir at UN. Should make some heads roll.
