Have to neutralize terrorists through terrorists: Manohar Parrikar

New Delhi: On Thursday, Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar hinted at a covert response to fight terrorism saying “We have to neutralise terrorists through terrorists only. Why can't we do it? kaante se kaanta nikalta hai (you remove a thorn with the help of a thorn). The Minister has told this to TOI.

He also said that terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir were being paid monthly salaries ranging from Rs 10,000-Rs 15,000. Parrikar said, “Why not use them? What is the harm in using terrorists against terrorists? Why should our soldiers be in the front?”
Adding to his statement, he said, “Many attempts have been foiled and many neutralisations have taken place… if you see, recent incidents… Army knew about the hideout of the terrorists, they took them on at the place of their hiding… Security forces go by the guarantee of the government standing by them… and I can tell as a Defence Minister, I stand by the Army at any cost.”
