Fierce exchange of mortar shelling broke out between Indian and Pakistani troops as the latter resorted to unprovoked ceasefire violation along the Line of Control in Krishna Ghati sector of Poonch district late Saturday evening.

With Pakistani troops firing 82mm and 120 mortars on the Indian side and the Indian troops equally retaliating, the shelling between the two sides was intense. The explosion of shells was audible even in Poonch town, locals said, adding that they see the sky lit with mortar shells.

The loss of property or casualty on the India side was not known, sources said. They attributed the shelling to continued unsuccessful attempts by Pakistan to push in armed terrorists into the state from across the border.

    Except one, all other writers of a particular community are still supporting these terrorist nation stan. This shows that in any area, these people become one, irrespective of nature of wrongdoings or terrorism. This shows that oneness is more for them than motherland, patriotism and right living people. This is the reason that this community is day by day getting hated by everyone throughout the world, even by those who likes to live with them in peace and goodness. Mentally ed community.

      Use weapon locating radar and destroy all places from where ever the shel is coming from and fire 155 mm s to destroy the targets. If they use heavy artillery then pulvarise the target. The firing should be so intense that stan must beg to stop it. Heavy casualties must be inflicted to those who started shel . The expense should be so much that stani army would drain the economy and the country would go bankrupt.

          Absurdity of a hog of hinduism racism by faith, talking of hinduism lies as usual, to give Muslims and Islam a bad name, hindrance to truth hinduism illegality is not a faith but, hinduism crime against humanity, practiced as a religion, to hind fool humanity in to hinduism slavery of few of the upper cast, It is better to be a human, in equality, than to be a hindu slave tied to a rope, held by another man, claiming to be his god.

            Let us see how human you all are. You have to cut your pen-is skin or else god cannot identify you. Women have to have cli-tor-is pinched off. Women must be covered from head to feet or else they will get ra-ped in your culture. Women have to marry and consumate before they can remarry man they had divorced. And so much more. There is so much revelation and truth in your religion that it blinds the rest of us that we cannot see it. I would rather be a Hindu hog than you. A creature that lives off pure hatred with single-minded intention to kill others and rule the world- like a mindless virus. What equality are you talking about? Wonder why Muslim refugees always flee to any other country but a Muslim country. You are rotting in hatred.

            It's Muslims of India uniting and rebel against the Indian occupation army. Now the Muslims of India not only demand a Kashmir but all India . All Hindus should be deported to Nepal or Kala Pani. Else they have to live as slaves or pros utes for Muslims. Muslims of India have united and it's time the Hindus especially Brahmins feel the heat. Somnath, Kashi, Rajpath , Nagpur, Kedaranath should all be demolished like before and Hindus must submit to Muslims Sikhs Dalits and Christians of India.

            Guys why this hatred. Can we all not live together like we have for centuries. Can we not write bad comments about anyones religion or faith. End of the day the blood is same colour be it any religion. Quran, Geeta, Bible, Sri Guru Granth Sahib all lead to the same principle of finding peace within oneself through discipline and selfless work for the humanity. But can we............

              Grow up Bob. The two Abrahmic religions' basic tenent is that only theirs is true religion and everyone else is praying to false gods. Ask the Pope if a Good Hindu, a Buddhist or a Sikh can go to heaven (if such a place exists). As for the Muslims they have so many Imams and subsects, but they will definitely say "no way". This is what riles others. What peace can there be if on one hand they are trying to convert your kids or some are trying to establish a Caliphate by keeping quite through " selfless work for humaity". Religious faith is illogical. There is no empirical data or research to show existence of god. Therefore it is almost impossible to debate these "beliefs" and come to peace. But good idea, if there were no hidden agenda behind this "selfless work for humanity."

              Muslims of India unite and rebel against the Indian state. It's time for Muslims of UP and Bihar and West Bengal and Kerala and Andhra and Maharashtra to take up stones arms lathis and rebel against the Indian army. All the muslims of India should March towards Srinagar and fight with the Indian army in their genocide and oppression towards Kashmiri Muslims . Let's break up India into small state of Nagpur only and capture all the Hindu bunyas and Brahmins. Let's make Modi a dog of Muslims and take revenge for the genocide of 2002 and 1992 and 1984 from the filthy Hindu Indians. Muslims of India unite and fight the Indian army in Kashmir

                  As Indian army Gen. Bipin Rawat's quote "Sooner or later these Islamic terrorists in Kashmir as well as Pak terrorists will face the bullets". The India is poised to become a military as well as economic power soon and there is no urgency to eliminate them completely because the only country getting hurt is Islamic Pak and the misguided Sunni Muslim separatists in the Kashmir valley and their mentors like National Congress/Abdullah's in the J&K.

                    Phase 4 of Pathiststani response is a writing on wall. 1. Phase 1: many posts destro . Response: smile. A video from their side which their own media does not believe. 2. Phase 2: infiltrate like before and kill as many in classical terror style to get even. Response: don't know what to do once many of the infiltrators perish. 3. Phase 3: try their army directly. Response: don't know how to match India as casualties climb. 4. Phase 4: Bajwah cal India directly to negotiate as Nawaz has become a laughing stock after SOC. Response: Bajwah backing off and trying Phase 1 again.

                            If Muslims pray in India, it goes to Allah. If they pray in Pathistan, there is good chance that they will meet ISI agents or Masud first, trying to make them terrorists.
