Soldier’s widow condemns invite to Sharif
The invitation extended to Nawaz Sharif for Narendra Modi’s swearing-in ceremony has not gone down well with the widow of martyred Indian soldier Hemraj, who on Sunday demanded that the Pakistan premier either bring back her husband’s head or condemn the barbarous killing.
‘Sharif should either bring the head of my husband or should publicly condemn the barbarous act of Pakistani soldiers, who had beheaded my husband,’ Dharmvati, the widow of Hemraj, told PTI on phone.
Lance Naik Hemraj was killed and beheaded by Pakistani soldiers on 8 January, 2013 in Poonch sector of Jammu and Kashmir.
‘In fact Modi should not have invited Sharif. I had voted for BJP since Modi in his election speech in Mathura, not only condemned the inaction of Manmohan government in the matter but had even challenged Pakistan then,’ she said, adding the BJP government’s invite to Sharif is an ‘insult’ to the sacrifice of a soldier.
