Owaisi welcomes IAF strike

IANS  |  Hyderabad 

AIMIM President Asaduddin Owaisi on Tuesday hailed the Indian Air Force (IAF) strikes on terror camps in Pakistan, saying India has the right to self-defence.

"We welcome this. It's a right step. We stand by the government," the Hyderabad MP told reporters.

"If a country is not able to stop non-state actors, then another country which is the target of terrorist violence has the right to act in self-defence," he said.

Owaisi said India should now go after Pakistani terrorist leaders Hafiz Saeed and Masood Azhar. "They are satans and their outfits are also evil."
