                Indian army are not fools to publicise the surgical strike to reveal the methods and tactics they used to carry out the strike,---thus PORKISTAN are trying their very best to condem the strikes by inviting international media to fool and justify their own porkistanis so that India indirectly gets provoked and releases the strike footage,---India will keep porky armies guessing until the next surgical strike which will cripple poky armies and put them in a non SURGRICAL state..
