Prof.Bhim Singh, Chief Patron of National Panthers Party strongly condemned the terrorists’ attack on Air Force Base in Pathankote, Punjab followed by the utter failure of the Modi government to defend borders and security. Prof.Bhim Singh said that the Modi government should bring out a white paper on the entire shocking attack by half a dozen armed terrorists at Pathankote Air Force Base which is bordering the Indian state, Jammu and Kashmir.

Prof.Bhim Singh wondered on the criminal silence of the Prime Minister of India on the assault by the terrorists, identified by India as Pakistani terrorists.

The Prime Minister of India has responsibility to let the nation know what are the impressions and understandings about this attack by the Prime Minister of India who visited Pakistan last week on a hidden agenda.

Gholan Heights was attacked by Israeli commandoes in 1973 and successfully resisted by the Syrian forces assisted by the Palestinian commandoes. Prof.Bhim Singh said that there are several questions which need to be answered by the Govt. of India headed by Shri Narendra Modi;

a).     Where was the Indian Intelligence Bureau when the foreigners from Pakistan entered into Punjab (India) carrying tones of weapons with them?

b).     Where was the Indian Intelligence-experts and what were they doing?

c).      Why the communication between the defence units at the border and the defense Air Force was out of work?

d).     What follow up action was taken by India to counter the terrorists’ attack?

e).      What is the diplomatic initiative taken up by the Prime Minister Shri Modi undertaken with the Prime Minister of Pakistan, Shri Nawaz Sharief with whom Shri Modi had 80 minutes secret close door talk only last week?
