Kozhikode: BJP President Amit Shah on Sunday lambasted Pakistan and said that the government is determined to give a befitting reply to Pakistan for sponsoring terrorism.

A day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi accused Pakistan of exporting terrorism, at the BJP National Council Meeting, BJP president Amit Shah also utilised the stage to hit out at Pakistan.

"We condemn the attack on Uri where 18 soldiers were martyred. This is sponsored by Pakistan. Pakistan is supporting terrorism. India has been a victim of this," said Shah.

Talking about the current crisis in Jammu and Kashmir, Amit Shah fairly and squarely blamed Pakistan. "Situation in J&K is also because of Pakistan. Nawaz Sharif’s speech at UN shows that Pakistan is supporting terrorism since beginning, he glorified terrorist Burhan wani as a leader," he said.

Amit Shah also urged all the political parties to join hands in this fight against terrorism. "We appeal everyone including other political parties to come together and help the Govt and Army in their fight against terrorism," he said.

Shah also stated that no matter how long it takes, India will win the fight against terrorism and Pakistan will be exposed.

Meanwhile, Pakistan's High Commissioner to India Abdul Basit denied any involvement of Pakistan in the Uri attack.

"Pakistan has nothing to do with Uri attack. War is not a solution, war creates more problems," said Basit in an inyterview to an Indian newspaper.

Earlier, Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif claimed that the Uri terror attack could be the result of a "reaction" of the people to the situation in Kashmir, and criticised India for blaming Pakistan "without any evidence".

Speaking on the last day of the two-day long BJP National Council Meet in Kozhikode, Kerala, Shah referred to Deen Dayal Upadhyaya - an RSS member and former President of Jan Sangha - as "an alternative thinker, who, when everyone was busy with communism, capitalism, came up with an ideology of 'humanism'".

He thanked and praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi too, who was present at the meet.

Upadhyaya, a politician, philosopher, economist, sociologist, historian, journalist was born on September 25, 1916 in Uttar Pradesh. He served as the Bharatiya Jana Sangh from 1967 until his death in 1968.
