    lets get this straight. Indian forces stealthily crossed the LoC and lined up dozens of terrorists who offered no resistance and were just waiting to be killed, and then managed to cross back unharmed.

    stan believed that either the Uri attack was an Indian false flag operation like Pathankot or the Indian military site was targeted by Kashmiri freedom fighters after the Indian atrocities against the people of Indian Occupied Kashmir crossed all limits. India blamed that those attacked Uri had infiltrated from stan but has shared no evidence with Islamabad so far.
