Thackeray, in his editorial on Monday, said that Pakistan had recently attacked 13 villages and fired at 22 outposts in Jammu, leaving two civilians dead and several injured, forcing people to flee from their homes.
“This is the biggest incident of its kind since 2003. In fact, in the past one month or so, Pakistan has carried out 25 similar attacks on Indian territories. But we have kept mum — like some damp fire-cracker,” Thackeray said.
“India responded by cancelling the secretary-level talks, but that is not enough — Now, we must enter their borders and knock them down. Now, the country is expecting that we should set fire to Pakistan’s tail and reduces it to ashes — Don’t make any further delay. Act and show that this is a ‘manly’ country. Prove to the people of India that a ‘macho’ government has taken over in New Delhi. This is our plea to the centre”, Thackeray said.
