The founder and President of World Sufi Forum and All India Ulama & Mshaikh Board, Syed Mohammad Ashraf Kichochwi congratulates the Indian establishment and the Prime minister Narender Modi on his stern act against terrorism. He laudes India's surgical strikes in the wake of the Uri attack perpetrated by the Pakistani terrorists on the Indian army near the LoC in Jammu & Kashmir in which over18 Indian Army were martyred.
The Founder of World Sufi Forum welcomed the motive behind this operation preventing terrorists who infiltrate or attack the Jammu & Kashmir region.
Syed Mohammad Ashraf states:
"In January 2004, Pakistan had assured us that it would not use its territory as breeding ground for terrorism against India. We hoped Pakistan would keep its promise. But it backed out of its word recently in the Uri attack. Given this, the surgical strike has conveyed to Pakistan the sentiments of our countrymen: Pakistan must stop sponsoring terror".
He further states:
"The surgical operation is an apt and timely retort to the terrorists emboldened by the Pakistan government. We should understand that surgery comes into play as the last resort when all medicines have failed. There has been a pressing urge for the surgical strikes for a long time. Of course, for a successful surgery and a positive outcome, one needs a holistic view of the situation."
Syed Mohammad Ashraf added saying:
"I am sure that the people of Pakistan will also appreciate and support this most-needed decision of the Indian government to restore peace and tranquility in the region.
Islamic scholar and researcher with the World Sufi Forum, Ghulam Rasool Dehlvi said: "It's time Pakistan stopped sponsoring terrorist outfits. Surgical strike was the only panacea for the devastating ill plaguing the region. However, the operation should be focused on ensuring ultimate peace and internal security and preventing the terrorists from enacting their nefarious designs causing destruction and endangering the innocent lives."
