A pigeon, apparently from across the border, was taken into custody after a letter written in Urdu and addressed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi was found with it by BSF personnel at Simbal post in Bamial sector on Sunday. The development comes after two balloons were recovered with a similar message in the area on Saturday.

Police said the message written on a piece of paper read: “Modi Ji, do not consider us same people as we were during 1971 (Indo-Pak war). Now each and every child is ready to fight against India.”

 

The grey-coloured pigeon was found by BSF near their post, Inspector of Narot Jaimal Singh Police Station (Pathankot), Ramesh Kumar said.

“The pigeon was carrying the letter when it was found,” he said, adding the bird has been taken into “custody”.

“We are investigating the matter,” Kumar said.

The message read: “Modiji, Ayubi ki talwaren abhi hamare paas hain. Islam zindabad.”

On September 23, a white pigeon, apparently from across the border, with “some words written in Urdu” was found in Punjab’s Hoshiarpur district.

    India should immediately declare war on stan for this avian intrusion of Indian air space. The pigeons may be carrying avian flu. This is a direct attack on our beloved PM Shri Shri Narendra ModiJI. This is an ination attempt.

            PARIKAR is the most happiest. He is thinking he has got an excellent bargain. His motor mouth will say tomorrow, "we have got high value intelligence input from the pigeons and based on that we are making more Surgical strikes". Thank you pigeons.

                            If we claim that we should go to age of our saintly kings and all we are not supposed to harm the messenger. That is prohibited according to the diplomatic rules of ancient India. To arrest this poor pigeon is not proper. When we talk so highly of Ram and all how this was done. It is highly unpardonable.

                              Pigeon taken into custody. Great !. Will it be searched before it is put in lock-up? What kind of lock-up? Along with pickpockets and other petty thieves and offenders or with Grade A ones like VVIP politicians or business tycoons like Subroto Roy and all? Or where Kasab had occupied? What food it will get? It is a bit complicated issue when you have to take a pigeon or a dog and all as breakers of lands laws.lt;br/gt;And what about the balloons through which such messages were sent? Should not they also taken into custody? And if they burst in custody, will it be termed as custodial death?

                                  Of course the butchers of stan have nothing else to do but breed, kill defenseless animals in senseless ways, make threats, organize gangs, kill and maim their own sisters and wives and now stan has given them India to be attacked. This does not mean Indians are not proud of their country, there are enough Indians who will also take arms up to fight stan.

                                    India should send back the message that 125 crore Indians don't consider Modi anymore as Jhumlebaaj.

                                      stan just wants to come in front as India to notice. It should stop fomenting trouble in Kashmir and India will never bother if stan exist or not. We do not care what stani is doing.
