“Wrong to attack Pakistan” — Congress Overseas Chief Sam Pitroda

In a shocking statement the Congress Overseas Chief Sam Pitroda on Friday questioned the death toll in the Balakot airstrikes conducted by the Indian Air Force in response to the Pulwama  terror attack and added that it was wrong to attack Pakistan.

Speaking to news agency ANI, Pitroda said, “Don’t know much about attacks. It happens all the time. Attack happened in Mumbai also, we could have then reacted and just sent our planes but that is not right approach. According to me that’s not how you deal with world. Eight people (referring to the 26/11 terrorists) come and do something, you don’t jump on entire nation (Pakistan). Naive to assume that just because some people came here and attacked, every citizen of that nation is to be blamed. I don’t believe in that way.

Soon after Sam Pitroda’s comments hit to news, Prime Minister himself attacked Rahul Gandhi’s close aide.  Modi completely failed to answer any questions raised on Balakot, but instead took refuge behind the armed forces.

(The Pigeon Express Opinion – Agree it’s not right to blame entire Pakistan for the terror attacks in India and its okay to question the government on Balakot casualty, however, there is no wrong in conducting anti-terror operations in Pakistan? If Pakistan is not doing enough, we should do it, because “prevention is better than cure.”)
