CDS Gen. Bipin Rawat backs 'US-like' action to counter terrorism
New Delhi/IBNS: Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) General Bipin Rawat on Thursday backed the "US-like" action post 9/11 to bring an end to terrorism and said anybody who sponsors terrorism has to be taken to task.
Speaking at Raisina Dialogue 2020, General Rawat in a veiled attack on Pakistan said, "We've to bring an end to terrorism and that can only happen the way Americans started after 9/11, they said let's go on a spree on global war on terror and let the nation join together and fight terrorism together. To do that you have to isolate the terrorists, anybody who is sponsoring terrorism has to be taken to task."
General Rawat's comment came days after new Army chief General Manoj Mukund Naravane warned the neighbouring nation of stern action and said India will respond to terrorism with "equal measure" emphasising on India's zero tolerance to terrorism.
On the occasion of 72nd Army Day on Wednesday, General Naravane said, the Indian Army is ready for any future war and the borders are strongly guarded.
