18 soldiers were martyred and four terrorist were killed in the deadly Uri attack. 14 soldiers were burnt alive as they were sleeping in the camps. Surgical strike were the first of its kind in the history of cross border terrorism.

To execute Uri attack four terrorist were able to cross the line of control with the help of their local handlers. It is believed that they made use of the space available between the electric fencing to cross the border. As per the latest on going investigation this whole operation was not possible without the help of local person.  There can be two to three handlers to help them in cross the border.  It is also suspected that this would have not been possible to cross the electrified fence without the usage of some kind of wooden ladder. 

Risk of there life was inevitable considering regular patrol of army around the fencing of LOC. Success of there cross border movement evince their training and military support from across the border. Lot of ammunition, food and Indian currency was recovered from the terrorist which demonstrate their preparedness for the operation. Indian army retaliated to this insurgency very quickly , but as a backdrop they were able to catch the troops off guard in the early morning. In this whole act of terror our 18 soldier were martyred and 4 terrorist were killed.

Immediately after the attack PM Modi tweeted that the perpetrator of this attack will not go un-punished. Indian diplomats across the world came into action to isolate the Pakistan in the world community. Sushma Swaraj delivered an exemplary speech in the United Nation General assembly to expose Pakistan and its support of terrorism. Prime minister Modi again reiterated in Kerala his strong willingness to teach Pakistan a lesson if he does not stop supporting terrorist.

Evening of 29th, September Director general of military operation (DGMO) Lt Gen Ranbir Singh and Ministry of external affairs spokesperson Vikas Swarup confirmed in the press conference that the military has conducted a “Surgical Strike” across the border deep inside into Pakistan occupied Kashmir. Army paramilitary troops went inside approx 3KM in POK attacking 8 terror camps killing more than 50 terrorists. These terrorist were ready to be infiltrated in the Indian region. Without the loss of any life Army displayed an impeccable style in executing such operation.

Army acted on the terror launchpad mainly in the Nowgam sector of Kupwara district and Poonch district.

Since the Surgical strike done by the Indian Army JeM and  LeT activated their sleeper cell to up the fight against the army. There has been more than 4 attacks including BSF and army camp in Baramulla, army camp in Langate in Kupwara and various ceasefire violation. 

Question here is to ask how they are able to manage to do such fedayeen attacks on Indian soil? It is of course they are getting help from local villagers or their handler sitting on this side of the border.

Politics over Surgical strike

Repercussion of this attack on Uri was on Pakistani actors and MNS started protesting that they will not allow any movie to get release starring Pakistani actors. Even independent theatre from four states supported the ban on actors. Many stars came front to support them including Salman Khan that both are different they who attack Uri were terrorist and Pakistani actors are not.

We believe its the job of our govt to decide the policy of who can come and work in our country not some goons taking advantage of the situation . Government should not give visa to them or with immediate effect cancel their visa. Boycotting these actors will effect those actors and producers who are associated with their movie.  If they really want to work here they should come in front and condemn these attacks just like they condemned Paris or any other attacks.

After the surgical strike, various politician came in front of media and started asking “PROOF” of surgical strikes. This gives really bad message to the public that they don’t trust their army who protects our border. Taking advantage of the government situation as not to disclose the tactical information to the public. And politicising the issue is actually denying the martyrdom of soldiers which we should respect.
