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."
