    It is an act of Indian Terrorism against stan. It is India which supports and incites stani Taliban against stan. At this moment Indian Government officials are trying to shed the Alligator tears as if they have a lot of sympathy for stan, What A Chankya's teachings?I wonder what Indian reaction would be if this action would nave occurred on the Indian side of Wahga. W Indian media, Indian Government, BJP, RSS, RAW, Indian FM Shamsa Swaraj, Indian Defense Minister Aron Jathley would be weeping like a scary baby. They would have charged stan without any proof, however if now stan charges India for this cowardly act, then India will definitely ask for proofs, though India never provided any proof of stan Involvement to stan in any terrorist attack in India.
