        Oh la la , does the Indian army want to kill the remaining leftover terrorists in next three months. Good going guys , keep it up. No new terrorists are coming and those who were present are systematically killed. The remaining guys should surrender as they can eat biryani in Indian jail than sure shot bullet in their head.

            There is a man called Mohammed Dar with a Hindu ancestory. He is probably sleeping, but he will be presenting his one or two key ideas so many times by copying and pasting, that he would look like to be a winner.

              Supreme court should take action against Army for hurting the stone pelters. Its violation of human rights. Barkha Dutt should write a big article.
