Anti-Pakistan protest over Uri attack in Mumbai

Members of two organisations today staged a protest here to denounce the terror attack on an army base in Uri and urged the Centre to deal with "with an iron hand".

Rashtriya Ekta Manch and Maulana Azad Vichar Manch activists held the demonstration at the iconic in South and expressed solidarity with the families of the 18 soldiers who were martyred in the last Sunday's attack.

Hussain Dalwai, a sitting MP and president of the Manch, headed the protest gathering of nearly 500 people and asked the Modi government to act against in the wake of the Uri strike.

"Modiji, its now or never. Muster courage and show it to our enemy. We are not asking you to punish Pakistani people. We are not against them... But we are against the Pakistani government and its military which is training and harbouring terrorists," the leader said.

He said his party would "firmly" stand behind the government when it takes any decisive action to teach the neighbouring country a lesson.

The protesters also "hanged" the effigies of Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and its Army Chief General Raheel Sharif and demanded that Indian should snap ties with Islamabad. They also shouted anti-slogans.

Dalwai targeted Prime Minister Modi over his visit and giving gifts to Nawaz Sharif.

Nizamuddin Raeen, president of Minority Cell of Congress, condemned over the Uri attack and demanded military action against the neighbouring country for "sponsoring terrorism in India".

"is hell bent on provoking the peace-loving citizens of India. Time has come to seek military action against Pakistan. We also urge the United Nations to declare it as a terrorist state," he said.
