NEW DELHI: India will carefully decide its future course of action in the aftermath of the terror attack in Uri and will not do anything on the basis of what Pakistan says, Union Minister Kiren Rijiju said today. "We must not pay heed to Pakistan's reaction. Everything is in front of the people. We will take our next steps carefully. It does not matter what Pakistan says," he told reporters here.

The Minister of State for Home's comments came a day after heavily armed militants suspected to be from Pakistan-based JeM stormed an army base in Uri in Kashmir, killing 17 jawans. India had reacted strongly to the deadliest attack on the Army in Jammu and Kashmir in a quarter-century-old insurgency that sparked an outrage with Prime Minister Narendra Modi strongly condemning it.
