Panic struck the people of Srinagar as a falling meteorite was confused for a missile, hours after India confirmed conducting surgical strikes along the border in Pakistan. Onlookers in the Jammu and Kashmir capital took the ‘missile’ as a retaliation in the aftermath of the border tension.

The Indian Army on Thursday organised surgical strikes targeting seven terror launch pads across the LoC overnight in which heliborne and ground forces were used. Addressing a press conference, DGMO Lt Gen Ranbir Singh said India inflicted “significant casualties” on terrorists and those who are trying to support them.

This is latest in the string of offensives India has launched against Pakistan since four attackers killed 19 soldiers in Jammu and Kashmir’s Uri when they targetted the rear office of an Indian Army infantry installation on September 18. India has resorted to several diplomatic measures and vowed to internationally isolate Pakistan ever since.

      stan too tiny and India militarily stronger than China. Global balance shattered and the West can do nothing. India has ICBMs with nuclear warheads. Remember we blasted the nuclear bomb in 1974. The hoax of stani nuclear program planted by her friends to marginalize the Indian giant is an open story. stan has two crude Uranium nuclear weapons got from China. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;The world has now to live with a superpower of 1.3 billion people India.

            There are lots of sympathizers among prominent Indians. Yechori, Kejriwal, Mumtaz Begum of Bengal, Digvijay, Khurshid, Kanhaia, JNU students, JADAVPUR U students - plenty of Hindu fifth columnists are there. In addition, various Islamic Jihadi Groups on Indian soil operating for years.
