        They are breeding terrorists in stan like mosquito and Indian army must kill them like that. New technology needs to be devloped to kill them like spraying fire if they are d up in. A house , poison gas which would temporarily paralyze them so that after catching they must be send to hospital for recovery and then water boarded and after they spill out the truth hang them and ask stan to claim the bodies , which of course stan would refuse and so burn them as lawaris.this has to happen at industrial scale so that the message would go in stan that there is no fun involved being jihadi you would suffer and would not get even two yards of land in stan.
