Retaliating to the February 14 Pulwama terror attack, 12 Mirage 2000 aircraft of the Indian Air Force (IAF) crossed the Line of Control early on Tuesday and destroyed major Jaish-e-Mohammed terror camps by disposing 1000 kg bombs. The attack being touted as ‘Surgical Strike 2.0′ is a befitting reply by Indian forces to Pakistani terror activities in Kashmir and elsewhere.
Pakistan has been a habitual liar and India has been tolerating its non-sense for a long time now. However, after carrying out a cowardly car bomb attack on para-military CRPF personnel in Pulwama on February 14, the patience of the country was running out. This was the time to teach Pakistan a lesson and Indian armed forces did exactly what nation wanted them to do.
No doubt that India is faced with various security issues, but Indian armed forces are more than capable to give security to the country. The political leadership of the country has the vision to take it forward to make it a world power and has the capability and capacity to give a befitting reply to Pakistan. The armed forces have shown their strength and proved what it can do to avenge our soldiers’ lives. The camps where Pakistan was training terrorists and sending them to India have been completely destroyed.
Time has come when the world should treat Pakistan as a rogue state like North Korea and create a super alliance with India to combat extremism as Islamabad has blackmailed US and other countries into providing aid to combat terrorism but continues to harbour terrorists. World knows fully well that Pakistan harbours terrorists, and even terrorists have infiltrated Pakistan army ranks.
With the dark shadows of 9/11 and the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks still looming large on collective consciousness, America and India must engage together to fight the Pakistani extremism and terrorisms. In today’s world, according to the current geopolitical scenario, a rogue country means that country which is threat to international peace, threat to other nations sovereignty, or threat to borders of other countries. And Pakistan is a perfect example of a rouge state
Pakistan harbors terrorism, shelters Afghan Talibans and Haqqani network against US army. Pakistan army and ISI created Taliban, Jaish-e-Mohammad, Lashker-e-Toiba, who attack and kill people in India, Afghanistan and Iran. Majority of terror attacks find their roots in Pakistan. Civilized world needs to isolate this rouge nation until it stops all terrorist organization operating from its land.
