#MannKiBaat | Peace, unity & harmony are ways to resolve problems: Modi’s message to Kashmiris

NEW DELHI: Likening the anger in the country over Uri attack to that witnessed in the 1965 war, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday maintained that those responsible for the terror strike will surely be punished as he asserted that the army does not speak but displays bravery.


He also sent out a message to the people of Kashmir, which has been witnessing unrest for over two months, saying that “peace, unity and harmony” are the ways to resolve problems and expressed confidence that all issues can be addressed through discussions.

In his monthly radio programme ‘Mann Ki Baat’ which he began by paying tributes to the 18 soldiers who died in the Uri attack on September 18, Modi said, “this cowardly act was enough to shake the entire country. There is mourning as well as anger in the country.”

He said, “This is a loss not only for those families which lost their sons, brothers, husbands. This loss is for the entire country. That is why, today I will say only this much, which I said on that day (of the incident) also and I will repeat it today, that the guilty will surely be punished.”

Reposing faith in the Indian army, the Prime Minister said it will foil all such designs through its bravery.

“They (Indian armymen) are the people who take bravery to its pinnacle so that 125 crore people can live a peaceful life,” he said.

“We are proud of our army. People and politicians get opportunities to speak and that’s what they do. But the army does not speak. The army displays its bravery,” Modi said.
