New Delhi, July 23: NDA's Vice-presidential nominee and Senior BJP leader, Venkaiah Naidu today addressing at the ‘Kargil Parakram Parade’ said, "Our neighbour should understand that aiding and abetting terror will not help them, they should recall what happened in 1971."

While addressing the Kargil Parakram Parade, former Union Minister said that the terrorism is the enemy of humanity and it has no religion. Terrorism had become Pakistan’s state policy. Dissent is agreeable but disintegration is not at all acceptable, Naidu said.

“Pakistan should remember that Kashmir is integral part of India and India won't allow anyone to take even an inch of Kashmir”, he added.

“Ours is a peace loving country. But when this highly coveted peace is denied to us, our brave soldiers respond in a befitting manner,” Naidu tweeted later in the day.

Naidu's remark came amid rising infiltration bid along the Line of Control (LoC) and ceasefire violations by Pakistan in which at least eleven persons, including 9 Indian soldiers, were killed and 18 people injured in by Pakistan this month.

Naidu had stepped down as Information and Broadcasting minister last week after the BJP announced him as its vice-presidential nominee against opposition candidate Gopal Krishna Gandhi.

Naidu so far enjoys the support of 485 of the 788 members of the Electoral College that will choose the next vice-president on August 5, his election managers have said.

The Indo-Pakistani War of 1971 was a military confrontation between India and Pakistan that occurred during the liberation war in East Pakistan, from 3 December 1971 to the fall of Dacca (Dhaka) on 16 December 1971.
