Farooq Abdullah's warning to PAK

Former J&K CM and National Conference President Dr. Farooq Abdullah said on the Kathua attack, "...It is being condemned all over the world. This is wrong. No country in the world is ready to accept terrorism. This terrorism will destroy them (Pakistan). When terrorism stops, then talks will begin. Both things cannot go on together. They should take strict steps in this regard."

Abdullah warned Pakistan that India's patience may break and a war may break out. He said, 'They are already ruined and war will bring nothing but destruction to both the countries. Please stop terrorism.'

Indian government expressed condolences.

President Draupadi Murmu wrote on Twitter on X (earlier Twitter), 'The attack by terrorists on the convoy of Army personnel in Kathua district of Jammu and Kashmir is a cowardly act which must be condemned and strict action must be taken against it. My condolences are with the families of the brave soldiers who have sacrificed their lives in this ongoing war against all forms of terrorism. I pray for the speedy recovery of the injured.'

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh posted on Twitter: "I am deeply saddened by the loss of five of our brave Indian Army personnel in the terror attack in Badnota, Kathua (J&K). My deepest condolences to the bereaved families, the nation stands with them in this difficult hour. Counter-terrorism operations are underway and our troops are determined to maintain peace and order in the region. I pray for the speedy recovery of those injured in this dastardly terror attack."

'Strict action will have to be taken'

Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha and Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said on X, 'The news of the terrorist attack on the Indian Army vehicle in Kathua, Jammu and Kashmir is extremely sad. I offer my heartfelt tributes to the martyrs who made the supreme sacrifice for the motherland and express my deepest condolences to the bereaved families. I wish the injured soldiers a speedy recovery. These cowardly attacks on our army are highly condemnable. The fifth terrorist attack within a month is a terrible blow to the security of the country and the lives of our soldiers. The solution to the continuous terrorist attacks will be strict action, not hollow speeches and false promises. We stand firmly with the country in this hour of grief.'

Giriraj lashed out at the opposition.

Union Minister Giriraj Singh said, 'When the UPA government was in power, bombs used to explode, from Telangana to Orissa... everywhere in the country... but today, terrorists have entered their burrows just like rats enter their burrows and when they come out, they go to hell... the same is happening in Kashmir. Congress should not demoralize the army, paramilitary, soldiers of Kashmir... they do not praise the army, they are the people who abuse the bravery of the army.'

Jammu and Kashmir BJP leader Kavinder Gupta said, "The terrorists have once again carried out a cowardly attack. The security forces made a lot of efforts to bring peace to Jammu and Kashmir... If such incidents happen, it is sad. But the cowards will not be spared."

Janata Dal-United (JDU) spokesperson KC Tyagi said, 'This is a cowardly action taken by terrorist organizations at the behest of Pakistan. Our brave soldiers will respond to this strictly.'

'Sleeper cells are present in Kashmir'

Defense expert Praful Bakshi told ANI, "There are sleeper cells all over Jammu and Kashmir which are supporting the terrorists. After all, who is giving the terrorists a place to stay, who is giving them weapons, it is not like they (terrorists) land with parachutes..."
