Jammu: India’s Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said that India wanted friendship with the neighbouring country but Pakistan was behaving differently. He said that post-independence, JK became a “war theater” but due to the supreme sacrifices made by the forces, all bids aimed at damaging India’s integrity and sovereignty were foiled.

Addressing a function at Jammu regarding Kargil Vijay Diwas on Sunday, Singh said that India has fast emerged as the world’s best democracy and super power. Singh was in Jammu to commemorate the Kargil War day.

“We want friendship with our neighbor but don’t know why Pakistan is behaving differently. Pakistan’s behavior is totally different,” Singh said. He said that during the Kargil War, Pakistani intruders had sneaked into Indian territory, but when Indian soldiers launched their attack, Pakistani soldiers and intruders had to flee from Indian posts. “Vikram Batra is a great hero of Kargil war. There are hundreds of heroes who laid their lives to protect the country during the Kargil war. I pray my rich tributes to all our martyrs who sacrificed their lives to push the intruder back to Pakistan,” Singh said, as per KNO.
