A day after it had reacted with outrage to the brutal killing of Indian soldiers by Pakistan troops saying that India's patience is "running thin", the Congress on Thursday followed it up by reminding the neighbouring country of 1971 war and asking it to "learn from history".
"It is wrong to say that we are a soft state. History is witness that we have always taught a lesson to our enemies. We hope that Pakistan will take a lesson from this history," AICC spokesman Rashid Alvi said. He added "never before has one lakh soldiers surrendered before any other nation" as had happened in the war for liberation of Bangladesh.
Rejecting the Opposition's charge that that there is a "weak government" that may not be capable of taking tough decisions against Pakistan, Alvi said that the allegation is "an attempt to deny history and glory of the nation".
