    NEW DELHI: In an oblique criticism of Israel's offensive in Gaza, India on Wednesday said "disproportionate use of force" was completely unacceptable and demanded immediate deescalation of the conflict in the region.

    Against the backdrop of criticism that India was muted in its response to the latest conflict in Gaza, external affairs minister Salman Khurshid told reporters that "we did say categorically that the disproportionate use of force is unacceptable.

    "It is a very sad and tragic escalation of violence that cost the loss of some innocent lives particularly women and children."

    He also reaffirmed India's commitment to an independent state of Palestine.

    Khurshid said India considers the violence "completely unacceptable and would urge that peace must be restored immediately and whatever efforts were being made for peace and deescalation of violence takes place, India would support categorically."

    India expects and hope that "this is what would happen and would want to make it clear that our support to the Palestinian cause remains undiluted," he said.

    The minister said India would reconfirm the support that Palestine deserves an independent sovereign state with Jerusalem as its capital and the country was firm on that position.

    But at the same time, he said, it was important right now that deescalation takes place and peace returns and that disproportionate use of force that was being inflicted is something that is totally unacceptable.

    We should stay :tape: on the events in Gaza, just give light comments Israel is our partner and one of the handful of nations who know India's position in regards or fighting terrorism and our own anti-terrorism policies and not to mention Kashmir.

    Why would any one or any country use proportionate force in responding to an attack? If some one attacks my family, or me I am comming after them with everything I have. Its sure not going to be proportionate.

    On some Paki forums some pakis were saying they should put its Nukes in Gaza which would deter Israel for any attack. :lol:

    Are you that flat to comprehend ? GoI is speaking against civilian causalities committed intentionally or unintentionally by a professional army.

    diplomatic tight rope walking..nothing more than that.

    It will be business as usual as far as Indo-Israel relations are concerned, as it should be.

    yeah rockets must be answered with bigger rockets and not by sending fighter jet with laser guided bombs.
    Since HAMAS targets civilan area, Isreali should do what?
    Btw stupid logic by GOI what if Isreal says same for J&K?
    One more thing, if some country take action against terrorists who are targeting civilians, why give such statements? No need to appease any one.

    Generous use of words which actually mean nothing. India will not criticize Israel and nor it should. We have a lot going with Israel and we quite need to learn few of their tactics. Although Pak is not Gaza, there is still a lot India can do what Israel does and in fact take their help too.

    Can anyone throw some missile on why Hamas randomly starts pissing off Israel. Especially when they know they can't fight Israel with what they got. There must be some iota of strategy in their mind.
