            Yay! Now that this illiterate nikamma government knows that it cannot do any good work on its own, it has found that army's work can be used instead. Seriously, is this govt and its leader possessed of any ability at all?

                    India and stan are playing game of killing on border ? Soldiers should know that better video games are available on computer that they can play without killing . We are not in the olden age of Kingdoms now, to kill and enjoy. Instead of fighting with stan ( a sinking boat) We, Indians should have concentrated on development.

                          My advice to stan brothers well if you need kashmir so much and call it jihad. lt;br/gt;1) fight those who fight you.ie it should be Indian army but your strategy attacks is only capable of killing public who can't be suspected for keeping a knife in his pocket, you are not even victorious in those attacks. We Muslims here get trouble because of you guys.lt;br/gt;2)profit p.b.u.h. was on every battle field Muslims fought and was no suicide attacks. Why dont you take alleem or who ever order you to attack unarmed people let them get the promised jannah too lol. you are so considered about beards, where is the sunnah in these attacks you guys should stop trusting them no matter who it is alleem or army no difference pls. Do not cross borders and attack and of course in your land too.lt;br/gt;3) STOP JOKING : Islam is against killing any creature by fire, some are threatening with nukes, I'm sure they will not use it if they wanted to for Allah they would have come for gujrath or dec 6 ( we do have some bitter experience here too) but nothing happened or will happen in future. So better leave useless strategies and training camps Go back home and home and take care of your family. Let me see when lack of jihadist who has guts to step in Indian soil army or who asks you to be jihadist.lt;br/gt;3) just don't interfere with politics these people are useless if they ever cared about Muslims and Islam they would have been done something effective to put up a fight for justice when a innocent Muslim is killed. But they give words nothing happens it just repeats againlt;br/gt;4) so please don't fight with India or its army killing a soldier or two doesn't defeat a country. I respect your people too . Better be safe and away from us..... you guys are unfit don't make a situation of innocent casualties

                              And why this "good" news was not shared earlier? Answer: the easily slap India is getting from stan at the border is bad news. Therefore, like the farji- cal strikes, govt had to invent some "good" news.

                                Well done by BSF.This is first time one sees BSF killing so many stan Rangers.This is because of Rajnath Singh, Home Minister under whom BSF functions has given blanket sanction to BSF to hit back to stani Rangers without getting further order from Home Ministry.Hats off to BSF.

                                      stan has no other choice but to deny after getting slapped in the face time after time. So since stan knows it's end is nearing it has to hide facts or else the morosed public of stan will be further morosed...

                                        Enemy soldiers are dying, true. But our Jawans are also dying and Jawans as well as innocent civilians are getting wounded too. It is so sad. More sad because Diwali the festival of lights is to be celebrated day after tomorrow. So let us offer our sincere graude to our Jawans and pray for their safety. Let us not play fire-crackers on Diwali. Rather contribute liberally to the Army Welfare Fund.

                                            For two to three days during BRICS conference in Goa, Modi was ranting about stan 24/7 much to the annoyance of everyone who wanted to talk about business. Now you would think that atleast one member of BRICS, maybe Russia, would provide a sympathetic ear to Modi's sob stories ... but no, nothing of the sort. The much awaited BRICS joint statement came out which had no mention of anything Modi was crying about. Basically it was a middle finger to Modi. So who is getting slapped I ask you?
