As Pakistan gets listed among the ‘terrorist safe haven’ areas, BJP’s Vice Presidential candidate M Venkaiah Naidu on Sunday, warned Pakistan from abetting terrorism recalling the war of 1971.

Warning the neighbouring nation, Naidu referred to the war of 1971, when India, in response to Pakistan’s hostilities had liberated the East Pakistan making it the independent nation of Bangladesh.

Speaking at the Kargil Parakram Parade, a Kargil martyr memorial arranged in Delhi every year, former BJP leader Naidu said, “Our neighbour should understand that aiding and abetting terror will not help them, they should recall what happened in 1971.”

He added, “Our neighbour is restless... (it) doesn't allow other nations to rest but they should understand that we are united. People from Kashmir to Kanyakumari are united. We are united to fight back.”

Earlier this week, Pakistan was enlisted among the countries providing “safe havens to terrorists” by the US. The list includes countries like Iraq, Syria, Iran, Lebanon and Yemen who provide “Physical Safe Haven” to terrorist groups like Jaish-e-Mohammad and Lashkar-e Taiba.

The BJP leader has recently stepped down from his position as Union Minister of Information and Broadcasting after being chosen as the Vice Presidential Candidate of BJP.

In his speech on Sunday, Naidu said, “We are a peace loving people, we never attacked any country and this is our speciality. We don’t want war, we don’t want confrontation, we don’t want violence we want to have peace, we also want to have good relationships with the neighbours but they should also reciprocate the same. They should remember that Kashmir is an integral part of India and not an inch of even PoK will be allowed to be taken by anybody.”

Meanwhile, Pakistan seems to be intervening in the Indo-China standoff at Doklam as reports of Pakistan’s High Commissioner for India Abdul Basit meeting with Chinese and Bhutanese envoys surface.
