                                          Dear Defence Minister Parrikarji, is it possible to prevent death of our army personnel, BSF jawans in the hands of stani adventurers in the Indo-Pak international border?lt;br/gt;Untimely death of a soldier in the hands of enemy adventurers in undeclared and informal battlefield pains all patriotic Indians.lt;br/gt;-lt;br/gt;The soldiers have dreams too.lt;br/gt;Dreams for their future, to live up to ripe old age surrounded by naughty gchildren.lt;br/gt;They have families too, families they love and wish to see happy and in all smiles.lt;br/gt;We need to do everything possible to ist them to realise their dreams.lt;br/gt;Can we ensure their safety please?lt;br/gt;-lt;br/gt;I am sure structures can be erected, realtime satellite imageries can be provided to aid the soldiers and jawans serving in such volatile borders.lt;br/gt;I am sure Israel will be more than happy to provide us with logistics and ware.lt;br/gt;-lt;br/gt;Difficult terrain conditions cannot be an excuse.lt;br/gt;Being able to find solutions on the face of adversities is called leadership.lt;br/gt;-lt;br/gt;Else, declare a war and let us end the menace once and for all.lt;br/gt;That could be a permanent solution.

                                            I always doubt about a conspiracy between the Khangress and stani Government for these continuous attacks on Indian Army and the unrest in JandK. This is because around one year back, Manishankar Aiyer and Salman Khurshid, both of the Khangress have visited stan and requested stan to help destabilize Narendra Modi Government in Hindustan ! Is there any relation between the request and the attacks or is it just a coincidence? Allah knows !
