Launching a frontal attack on Pakistan, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on 11 December said terrorism is the weapon of cowards and added that India would give a befitting reply to the unprovoked ceasefire violations from the other side of the border.
Singh, who was addressing a rally during the 'Shahidi Diwas' programme in Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua, said Pakistan needs to mend its ways.
"Pakistan should understand that terrorism is not the weapon of brave, but of cowards," he said.
Speaking on issue of several youth joining the ISIS, Singh said, "They (ISIS) never got foothold in India because India doesn't support terrorism."
Referring to the surgical strike by the Indian Army post the Uri terror attack, he said, "I want to assure that this government will never let India to bow its head before anyone and will always give befitting reply to Pakistan 's attack."
Earlier in the day, Singh along with Minister of State in PMO Dr Jitendra Singh paid homage to martyrs.
The Home Minister is also likely to review the security situation of the state, particularly along the Line of Control and International Border.
