Those who support, shelter terrorists can’t be spared: Modi in Dussehra address

Those who support and provide sanctuary to terrorists can’t be spared, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said in a veiled message to Pakistan on Tuesday, adding that sometimes war becomes inevitable but India believes in walking the path of peace.

“Hum yudh se Budh ki yatra par jaane wale log hain (We are the people who move from war to the path of peace as shown by Lord Buddha). We are for a balance between war and peace,” Modi said at a public rally in Lucknow to mark Dussehra celebrations on Tuesday, twelve days after India launched surgical strikes on terror launch pads across the de-facto border with Pakistan.

The PM did not name Pakistan in his speech, the first since India’s military retribution against the neighbour New Delhi blames for the terror attack on an army base in Uri that left 19 soldiers dead.
