In a scathing attack, Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) chief Hafiz Saeed termed Prime Minister Narendra Modi ‘dangerous’ for Pakistan. The leader further said that Pakistan should support Anti-Modi forces in India as his leadership is not good for Pakistan.
It is important to note that BJP has been demanding action against Pakistan for recent terror attacks in Pampore in which 8 CRPF jawans were martyred. PM Modi had also expressed his anguish over the attack and saluted the courage of army jawans.
Modi and his team of Ministers including NSA chief Ajit Doval have been extremely aggressive in shaping India’s foreign Policy and are leaving no stone unturned to expose Pakistan’s notorious terrorist activities.
Modi has managed to make India the world’s fastest developing economy leaving no scope for Pakistan to play catch-up with a far superior Indian economy. Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar who was handpicked by Modi to lead and modernise India’s defence forces has turned around the entire defence sector and recently allowed 100% FDI in Defence.
Multi-billion dollar arms deals involving aircrafts, submarines, missiles, artillery and carriers are all being rigorously pursued by the MoD backed by funding from the Central Govt. India’s defence budget crossed $50 bn in the financial year 2016-17 which is 7 times larger than that of Pakistan’s.
Modi during his elections campaign in Arunachal Pradesh (a region claimed by China) had once said, “I swear in the name of the soil that I will protect this country,”
His sharp diplomatic maneuvers have even left China gasping for oxygen on the world stage. Although India recently failed to acquire a permanent seat at the NSG, China was shocked to see 36 out of 48 permanent NSG members supporting India over China.
Modi effectively countered China’s ‘String of Pearls’ strategy by openly aligning India with Japan and the United States thus outnumbering Chinese Naval and Air forces by unmatched technological superiority. Sending front line Indian warships to the South China Sea for joint patrols and exercises with the US and allied nations was a clear message sent to China that India will not shy away from upholding International Laws on Freedom of Navigation and respecting sovereignty of smaller weaker nations in the Far East against Chinese aggression.
China is left with no other option but to ally with a country like Pakistan that is incapable of purchasing a mere 8 F-16s without Financial Aid from the US.
If China and Pakistan are rattled by Modi’s leadership in just 2 years of his swearing in as the Prime Minister of India, imagine what would happen if Modi lead India for another 10 years.
