Kozhikode (Kerala): The Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) President Amit Shah today said the terror attack on Indian Army Camp at Uri last week was not a “result” but the beginning of India’s war against terrorism.

Shah during his address at the Bharatiya Janata Party’s National Council meet here, said that he condemned Pakistan for Uri terror attack and vowing to win the fight against Islamabad-sponsored terrorism.

Shah said in the statement, “Lambi ladai hai jo hum par hamare padosi desh dwara thopi gayee hai. Uri hamla padav matra hai, parinaam nahi. Antim vijay hamari hogi (This is a long fight, imposed upon us by our neighbouring country. The Uri terror attack is but a stage (padav) and not a result. The final victory will be ours).”

He said, “The country is determined to give a befitting reply to the Pakistan-sponsored terrorism.”

“During last eight months, 117 terrorists were killed, our soldiers foiled 17 attempts of infiltration and the Uri attack was a result of their frustration,” Shah said.

Shah affirmed that Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of the country and no one can separate it from India.

The BJP President’s statement described Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s speech at the United Nation General Assembly as open proof that the neighbouring country openly advocates terrorism.

He said his government has adopted a zero tolerance policy against terrorism, and appealed to the people of the country and all political parties to extend support in this battle.
