Hours after the Indian Air Force (IAF) conducted airstrikes on terrorist bases of Jaish-e-Mohammed in Pakistan, Agra got into a celebratory mood on Tuesday.
The Muslim community in particular appreciated the airstrikes and said that time has come to teach a lesson to Pakistan so that they stop sheltering terrorists.
Vishal Sharma, vice chairman of Hindustani Biradri, an outfit based in Uttar Pradesh, said that the Prime Minister should have taken this action a long time ago.
Ziauddin Qureshi, secretary of the Hindustani Biradri, said that Pakistan has been in denial and such tough steps are necessary to ensure that Pakistan would never think to attack India in the future.
Social activist Gyas Qureshi also appreciated Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his team and said that if such an action had been taken earlier, we never would have lost our brave soldiers.
When India Today TV spoke to Muslim women in the Braj region, they said that if the government would allow the Army to teach Pakistan a lesson, then none of the soldiers’ wives would have lost their husbands.
Bhartiya Muslim Vikas Parishad Chairman, Sami Agai told India Today TV that after teaching Pakistan a lesson, political parties should come together and encourage the Army.
There were huge celebrations seen in Muslim areas including, Mantola, Nai Basti, Nai Ki Mandi, and Loha Mandi. A roadshow was also organised by the Bhartiya Muslim Vikas Parishad.
