      Really tired of reading about someone being killed along the LOC. Don't these brave soldiers have their families? Are they not human beings like you and me? Politician from Both side of the border should stop sacrificing our brave soldiers for the sake of humanity.

          one so-called surgical strike from our side, one daily strike from their side, with one or more jawans killed each day. Modi's stan policy. He thought Kashmir was Gujarat.

              Our jawans are being killed everyday as usual as if no surgical strike took place and no terrorist camps destro. All Parrikar claims were bogus.

                Why should stani terrorists infiltrate when they are managing to kill Indian soldiers on the frontier? For them the mission was successful. It is about time the army talked about its achievements by head counts of stani terrorists and not foiling infiltration attempts.
