PUNE, INDIA: While both countries struggle to uphold the ceasefire agreement after the recent incidents of cross-border firing at the LoC, Indian social activist Anna Hazare has called for a “tit-for-tat” reply and to wage a war against Pakistan, the Indian Express reported on Friday.

“The way in which these jawans have been killed is unacceptable. It’s high time that we teach Pakistan a good lesson,” said Hazare.

“We should give them a tit-for-tat answer. Let’s have a decisive war and solve the problem for once and all. I am 75 now but if there need be I would go to the borders and fight against Pakistan,” he added.

Four soldiers from both sides have been killed in the recent spike in hostilities across the LoC – the heavily militarised de-facto border between Pakistan and India at Kashmir.

Tensions flared on Sunday when Pakistan accused Indian forces of conducting a cross-border raid, killing one Pakistani soldier and injuring another. Hostilities escalated on Tuesday, when India accused Pakistan of killing and beheading two of its soldiers on their side of the LoC.

@Rohit: I dare you put yourself in our shoes and face suicide blasts, drone attacks, target killings, ransom and strikes everyday. We are losing much more than you here and you think dude. This is not the way people of two nuclear powers should be talking and thinking. Why the do you think the situation gets tensed "always" when there's any progress in peace between the two? You'll say it's us, and we'll blame you in return. We've been playing this ping pong for 65 years, ignorant of the fact that our real enemy is who was defeated on this land and never forgot to avenge...
