NEW DELHI: Hitting out at Pakistan-sponsored terrorism, National Democratic Alliance vice presidential candidate M Venkaiah Naidu on Sunday asked Islamabad to recall the 1971 war and reminded the troublesome neighbour that Kashmir is an integral part of India and aiding and abetting terror will not help it.

Addressing the annual Kargil Parakram Parade here,  Naidu said terrorism is the enemy of humanity, it has no religion and it has unfortunately become Pakistan’s state policy. “Our neighbour should understand that aiding and abetting terror will not help them, they should recall what happened in 1971 and should focus on their own country and maintain peace there.

Terrorism is the enemy of humanity, it has no religion. Pakistan is mixing terrorism with religion. It has unfortunately become Pakistan’s state policy,” he said.

Naidu also asserted that Kashmir is an integral part of India and not an “inch” of it will be allowed to be taken. “We are a peace loving people, we never attacked any country... They should remember that Kashmir is an integral part of India and not an inch of even PoK will be allowed to be taken by anybody,” he said.
