A police officer from Himachal Pradesh on Monday received a death threat on facebook for reciting a patriotic poem that warned Pakistan against any 'misadventure'. It may be recalled that just a day after a terrorist attack in Uri (which left 19 Army soldiers martyred), a video appeared showing Manoj Thakur warning Pakistan through a poem and asking it not to mess with India on social media.
The video was being shared by thousands of people on Facebook, WhatsApp and other social networking websites and the family members of Manoj, who is currently posted at Kinnaur.
It was uploaded by him on ‘Kargil Day’ (July 26) but it went viral in the aftermath of the Uri terrorist attack.
The 130-second video with Manoj reciting the poem was shot on a bus carrying police personnel. The video sends a warning to Pakistan that any “misadventure” would “wipe it out from the world map”.
It says, “abki yudh hua to Kashmir to hoga lekin Pakistan nahin hoga” (if there is another war, Kashmir will survive but Pakistan won’t) and “hum Pakistan ke bomb se nahin, Tashkent aur Shimla samjhauton se darte hain” (We are not scared of Pakistan’s bombs but of Tashkant and Shimla pacts) and reminds Pakistan of its defeats in the hands of the Indian army in 1965, 1971 and 1999.
