It reminds me when few years back Lebanon abducted two soldiers of Israel and the latter launched an air attack coupled with ground raid to bring back those two soldiers. The basic point is that they value life and they also respect the job of the soldiers deployed in the line of duty.
On the contrary, Indian leadership is impotent to take strong action and behaves like a paper tiger; even the Mumbai attack did not give them enough courage to take strong action against Pakistan. The sayings of Ramcharitamanas, “Bhay Bin Hote na Preet (without fear no love)’’, need to be understood in letter and spirit.
This is the right time to retaliate with a bang. Only articulated speech will fall flat as it has been the habit of our political leaders to escape responsibilities. Let us draw a lesson this time to be proactive rather than reactive because the vacuum is always filled by the innocent lives that could have been saved.
