Low level politics in India: Questioning the 'surgical strikes' by Indian Army a shameful act!
The Indian Army launched a surgical strike in POK on 29 Sep, going 3-6 km deep inside the area, destroying seven terror camps and killing around 50 jihadis, including 9 Pakistani Army persons also. The people killed may even be hundred. As a result more than 300 jihadis including L-e-T head Hafiz Saeed have run away from POK to the main land of Pakistan.

Large number of countries including America and Russia who have the satellite facilities to counter check Indian claim of surgical strikes, have not only believed Indian claim but have supported Indian effort. Russian president Vladimir Putin has gone to the extent of saying that India did the right thing and has its right to self defence. Surely, Putin will not be saying this until his satellite imagery has confirmed about this strike.

Same goes for America. However, there are some politicians in India belonging to AAP and Congress who have questioned this strike, calling it fake. Needleless to say Pakistani media has picked it up and out of these netas Mr Kejriwal, the CM of Delhi is the real hero of Pakistani media who is demanding that Modi Government must provide proof of this strike.

This is first time in the history of India that some small time netas have questioned the act of the Armed Forces and tried to politicise the issue. They doubt their own Army for petty political gains. We have become laughing stock of the world. More than anything else this will definitely have the adverse effect on the morale of the brave Army jawans and those commandos who risked their life for the country. Surely we cannot accept these types of so called leaders. People of India must decide whether they are traitors or leaders.

First and foremost, the Indian Army is apolitical. They do not do anything to politically promote any party in power. Indo-Pak wars of 1947, 1965 and 1971 and Kargil War of 1999 are cases in point.

Previous wars were fought under the Congress and Kargil War under BJP. No political party till date asked for any proof of these military actions. Even in 2015 surgical strike against terror camps in Myanmar by the Indian Army, no proof was asked. By asking proof for this surgical strike by Indian Army, these politicians have doubted their own Army and the country. This is reprehensible. Surely, this cannot be allowed if we really love our country.

It is true that with the modern technology available, this entire episode of the strike by Indian Army has been recorded. All the proofs are available. They however cannot be put under public domain because there will be more such strikes in future and we do not want Pakistani Army to know our modus operandi.

Secondly, the entire Pakistan, its Army, its Government and its media is in denial mode as is their habit. More than 72 hours have passed and Pakistani Army has not retaliated so it is clear that they are afraid of further escalating the conflict. Because if they retaliate then we also will go in and this conflict may lead to war. By denying that India launched any such strike they get a way out of not to react militarily and save face.

The recent Baramulla jihadi attack of theirs which was a hurriedly launched botched up operation proves the point that this surgical strike did take place and their reply will be not through military but in the form of terror attacks.

Further proof of this strike having taken place is the way Pakistan rushed the international media to the place of occurrence. Where was the need to do it? Another proof is the series of meetings which were held within Pakistani government and its Army and all jihadi Tanjeems shouting their throats out.

Hafiz Saeed, the L-e-T head, even demanded their Army to be given a free hand by their government against India. Why? It is very sensible move by the Modi Government and the Army not to chest thumping with this surgical strike. Our case is that, we acted not against Pakistan, but POK which is illegally occupied by Pakistan and against the jihadis, who were using Pakistani land to carry out terror attacks on us because Pakistani Army was not doing it.

People of India must identify all those political parties and their leaders who have questioned the Army on an issue which is so sensitive for India.
