Congress Leader Manish Tewari

In another embarrassment for Congress, senior party leader and MP from Anandpur Sahib Manish Tewari criticized Manmohan Singh’s government for softening following the 26/11 attacks in Mumbai. In his book “10 Flash Points”; 20 Years – National Security Situations That Impacted India, ”Tewari said the government then softened in the name of restraint, which is not a sign of“ strength ”but“ weakness ”.

“For a state that brutally kills hundreds of innocent people without remorse, restraint is not a sign of strength; it is perceived as a symbol of weakness. There comes a time when actions must speak louder than words. 11/26 was one of them. A time when it’s easy had to be done, ”Tiwari said in the book.

“So I think India should have embraced a kinetic response in the days after India’s 9/11,” he added.

The 26/11 attack was a series of attacks that took place on November 26, 2008 in Mumbai. Ten Pakistani LeT terrorists fired 12 coordinated attacks and explosions in Mumbai, resulting in more than 150 deaths and several injuries. While nine terrorists were killed by security forces, Ajmal Kasab was detained alive by the police. He was hanged in 2012.

Meanwhile, BJP IT chief Amit Malvia criticized Congress for Tewari’s book.

After Salman Khurshid, another congressional leader threw the UPA under a bus to sell his book. Manish Tewari, in his new book, criticizes the UPA for weakness in the name of the 26/11 prohibitive fast. Air Chief Marshal Fali Major has already officially announced that the Air Force was ready to strike, but the UPA froze, ”he tweeted.

Khurshid recently in his book compared Hindutwa to radical jihadist groups such as ISIS and Boko Haram in his new book.
