Two balloons purportedly from Pakistan with a message for Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Urdu were found in a village near Dinanagar in Punjab. At 11:30 pm on Friday, yellow-coloured balloons with a note in Urdu saying “Modiji, Ayub ki talwarein abhi hamare paas hain, Islam zindabad” were first spotted by Chanan Singh, a guard of village Kesal outside his house. The ballons were later handed over to the Dinanagar police.

Deep tensions remain between India and Pakistan post the Indian Army’s surgical strikes against terrorist camps in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) on Thursday. The border areas are on a security alert and notably, Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal was on a visit to the border districts of Gurdaspur and Pathankot today to review the arrangements for the safe evacuations of villagers in apprehension of retaliation by Pakistan.

In July, a balloon with a picture of Pakistan flag with the message ‘I love Pakistan’ was recovered from Dinanagar. Last year, armed terrorists had attacked a police station at Dinanagar town in Gurdaspur district, killing seven people along with the Superintendent of Police.

    Funny that they use the honorific 'ji' in a threatening letter. Although I doubt it's from stan (half that country can't even write!) The message almost sounds like it could have come from the Congress party!

          KIM Bon saidlt;br/gt;I am sorry but Indian people are too stupid to see what's going on. Forget declaring stan terrorist in us parliament . You can't even touch them. Geopolitically , stan is too important . It has two Vito powers on its side . US , even though it has tried to cozy up India in the recent years but you should not forget that all supplies to the US troops in Afghanistan go through stan and since us troops are not going away anytime soon, india should not expect any radical changes in America atude towards stan. China , it's pretty obvious, CPEC. China wants easy access to central Asia and middle east and they would not stop at anything to achieve it......so I am sorry to say , you are pretty much helpless against the atrocities of stan..... it's not stan which is isolated ,it's india

            "The Indians cannot differentiate between a 'surgical Strike' and a routine border raid. They claimed that border raid on our forward post was the punishment they were looking to administer to stan. Instead, because of the high state of alert, they were thrashed. Their DGMO announced this so called surgical strike then in the same breath stated that there were no further plans to punish stan. He was in fact pleading to let them get away with this to allow them to spin a notion of vindication. It did not work. So what's next? Troop concentration? I would like to ask the Indians, will this raid stop further terrorist activity in India? Will it frighten stan into submission? If not then what was the purpose of doing it? To the Indians I would strongly recommend that they hold an enquiry and establish who was responsible for this asanine display of utter stupidity; was it the Army whose enthusiasm proved greater than their capability or was it the political leadership that was fooled by the Army's artificial swagger? At any rate, having Bollywooded themselves as a super power in the eyes of the world, this will not only be a rude awakening the world but the Indian poce as well."

                      यह आग तो सुलगती ही रहती है । बदले की आग है यह । दोनों तरफ है । आरोप और बयान इस आग को बुझने नहीं देते, घी डालते रहते हैं ।

                            On 16th December 1971, Radio stan announced that its soldiers were marching on the streets of Calcutta. What actually happened on that date, Khan Saa'b?

                                  It seems you guys learned nothing so far.What about 1971 ? Any lesson learnt.? Its matter of time Baluchistan will be going out of your hands soon. In 1999 Kargil , like Ayoobis your army took over empty bunkers..Its correct due to strategic location , India had hard time earlier but later on once we got the laser bombs , you got heavy casualty and then the very bloody retreat from Kargil. Regarding this surgical strike, let's give some time and truth will be uncovered.. Also in India, pro paaki and ISI backed media is working overnight to try make it prove that there is no such strike happened as you said.. I m sure if they get any proof and they will first to publish as this will help congi to come back to power..

                                    On the message shown in the picture above, nowhere does it say Islam Zindabad. And it says Ayubi ki Talwaren abhi.......
