New Delhi, Feb28: India's Ambassador to the United States, Harsh Vardhan Shringla, has said that India will not keep quiet to any act of terrorism and giving "appropriate response" to all terrorism incidents is the new normal for the country.
In a first-of-its-kind interaction with Indian students from the various universities from the Greater Washington area, Shringla said that Pakistan needs to meet its international obligations to crackdown on terrorist networks and safe havens within its territory.
Forty CRPF personnel were killed in a suicide attack by Pakistan-based JeM in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama district on February 14, sparking outrage in the country.
Following the attack, India bombed and destroyed JeM's biggest training camp in Balakot in Pakistan's restive Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, about 80-km from the Line of Control (LoC) early Tuesday, killing a "very large number" of terrorists, trainers, and senior commanders.
Shringla updated the Indian students about the latest development back home and why India choose to act this way, after the Pulwama terrorist attack.
He said that Pakistan did not act against terrorist organizations or its leaders despite India giving actionable intelligence against the 26/11, Pathankot and Uri attacks.
