From Pulwama to Balakot - a trail of Pakistan-sponsored terrorism
Avenging Pulwama terror attack, India strikes back: Indian Air Force’s crushing attacks destroy Jaish bases inside Pakistan killing about 350 terrorists
New Delhi – India offered its homage to its soldiers martyred at Pulwama by destroying the Jaish-e-Mohammed bases in Balakot, Pakistan. Tuesday morning dawned with the delightful news, and the country began celebrations. The Indian Air Force’s Mirage 2000 targeted the Jaish training centres in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) and areas even beyond it in Pakistan’s Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province. Bombs weighing approximately six thousand kgs were used for the attacks, reportedly killing at least 350 terrorists. Although media representatives claim their sources to have reported the number of dead terrorists to be anywhere between 600 to 650.
At 3:30 am on Tuesday, 12 Mirage 2000 fighter jets took off from the Indian air base in Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh and began bombing Jaish’s largest training base at Balakot in Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province in a matter of minutes. Along with Jaish, the Lashkar-e-Taiba and even the Hizbul Mujahideen were using the camp to provide training for acts of terrorism. The terrorists also used the base as a command and communications centre. Therefore, hundreds of terrorists were present at the base camp.
Pakistan attacks India: India downs intruding F-16 but loses MiG-21 during combat; IAF Pilot in Pak custody
Indian defence forces expose Pakistan’s lies; show evidence of crashed F-16
New Delhi – On Wednesday, Pakistan bragged that stalwarts in the Pakistan Air Force attained significant success in shooting down Indian fighter jets. The Pakistan media claimed that by shooting down the Indian fighter jets, their pilots humiliated India. However, the Pakistani celebrations were deflated by the evidence revealed on Thursday.
“The Indian fighter jets were shot down, but Pakistan did not suffer any losses. No F-16 aircraft was used in the attack. Therefore, India’s claim of downing the aircraft is false”, Pakistan had stated. Likewise, Pakistan said that there was no Jaish base in Balakot and that only the trees in the area were damaged in the Indian attack. Nevertheless, the Indian media and then the defence forces revealed evidence exposing Pakistan’s false claims.
Air Vice Marshal (AVM) RGK Kapoor of the Indian Air Force, Major General Surendra Singh Mahal of the Indian Army, and Rear Admiral Dalbir Singh Gujral of the Indian Navy addressed a joint press conference at 7 pm in New Delhi.
Pakistan’s attempt to rescind India’s invite to OIC backfires
Abu Dhabi – Pakistan’s demand to rescind the invite the 57-member body, the ‘Organisation of Islamic Cooperation’ (OIC) sent India has boomeranged on it. For India not to get a chance to present itself at the OIC, Pakistan threatened to boycott the meet scheduled to be held in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (UAE). However, the OIC paid no heed to Pakistan’s blackmail and maintained the invite to India. The move is seen as a humiliation of Pakistan in its attempt to corner India. Without any direct mention of the country, Indian Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj lashed out at Pakistan’s terror policies.
“Terrorism is destroying lives, destabilising regions and puts the world in great peril,” foreign minister Swaraj said as she severely criticised terrorism and extremism in her 17-minute speech. “Terrorism and extremism bear different names and labels. It uses diverse causes. However, in each case, it is driven by distortion of religion, and a misguided belief in its power to succeed. One cannot justify terrorism based on religion,” Swaraj asserted at the meet. I’ve come with the good wishes of 130-crore Indians where 18.5 crore Muslim brothers and sisters dwell, reminded Swaraj.
Indian Navy responds to Pakistan’s false propaganda about submarine intrusion; says Pak is not even aware of its naval deployments
New Delhi / Islamabad – ‘An Indian submarine was trying to enter Pakistani waters. Nevertheless, the Pakistan Navy detected it in time and thwarted the attempt. The submarine could have been easily engaged and destroyed had it not been Pakistan’s policy to exercise restraint in the face of Indian aggression,’ Pakistan Navy claimed. However, the Indian Navy deflated Pakistan’s ‘restraint’ bubble. India has undoubtedly deployed its ships, but Pakistan is entirely oblivious of the deployment, said the Indian Navy as Indian government continues to increase pressure over Pakistan. At the same time, the Indian Navy chief Admiral Sunil Lanba warned that a sea-borne terror attack was likely and that the Navy was prepared for it.
On Tuesday morning, Pakistan started its fake propaganda. “The Indian submarine was trying to enter Pakistani waters. However, the Pakistani navy detected the submarine and successfully thwarted the attempt,” Pakistani Navy stated. “The submarine could have easily been engaged and destroyed had it not been Pakistan’s policy to exercise restraint in the face of Indian aggression. The Pakistan Navy merely chased the submarine out of Pakistani waters,” Pak Navy bragged over the incident. It also shared a video of the alleged incident on social media and the timestamp on the video footage shows the recording time as 8.30 pm on March 4, 2019.
Indian Air Force snubs detractors, submits evidence of Balakot Air Strike to the Indian Government
New Delhi – The Indian Air Force has castigated Pakistan. Pakistan had claimed that they incurred no losses in the Balakot attack as they tried to save their face before their supporters and the international media. The Indian Air Force submitted satellite images of the air attack site which demonstrated its state before and after the strike. The presented imagery shows the IAF strike was precise and that the base suffered significant losses. However, international media were claiming that the attack was ineffective as the roof of the building was intact. Nevertheless, explaining the working of the ‘Spice 2000′ smart bombs used in the attack, Indian analysts are pointing out that they cause destruction inside the building rather than blowing away the roof.
On 26th February, the Indian Air Force pounded the Jaish-e-Mohammed base at Balakot inside Pakistan. The IAF and the government said that the attack was hugely successful. Even so, Pakistan was in denial of the Indian success and attempted to cover up its failure, stating that nothing happened in the area.
Pakistan used Jaish for terror attacks in India, shamelessly admits former Pak dictator Musharraf
Islamabad – Former dictator of Pakistan, General Pervez Musharraf made a brazen confession by saying that the Pakistani intelligence agency used Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) to carry out attacks in India. Musharraf made the statement during an interview with a Pakistani news channel. Therefore, the Pakistani military which claimed that Jaish was not present in Pakistan, has once again fallen on its face. It only proves that the action Pakistan had said it initiated against the terrorist organisations to save its skin was nothing but an eyewash. After the cowardly terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama, Pakistan has many times changed its narrative and stand.
The Pakistan Prime Minister had assured to initiate action if India provided evidence for the attack. Later on, following India’s submission of a dossier with evidence, Pakistan created a façade of starting proceedings against the terrorist organisations to pacify India and to ease the international pressure on it.

India deploys heavy calibre weapons along LoC and expert war-hardened officers to Pakistan border
New Delhi – India has taken an unprecedented decision to withhold the waters of the rivers flowing from India into Pakistan, a decision which was not made even during the previous wars. The waters of the rivers would be diverted into the River Yamuna, Indian Water Resources Minister Nitin Gadkari announced. India has taken an aggressive stand and decided to teach Pakistan a lesson by scrapping the ‘Indus Water Treaty’ signed between India and Pakistan in 1960. Previously, Pakistan had threatened India that if they did initiate such action, it would be considered a declaration of war.
While addressing a rally in Bhagpat, India’s Water Resources Minister Nitin Gadkari declared that the waters of three rivers flowing from India to Pakistan would be blocked and diverted to the River Yamuna. Thus, it would lead to an increase in the level of Yamuna, said Gadkari as he delivered a major shock to Pakistan. He also indicated that the decision was already in effect by adding that the construction work had begun on the River Ravi at Shahpur-Kandi.
New Delhi – Following the Pulwama attack, US National Security Advisor John Bolton acknowledged that India had the right to take action to defend itself. The US support has created a stir in Pakistan. Right after, the newly-appointed Israeli Ambassador to India, Dr. Ron Malka announced that Israel offers ‘unconditional’ help to India. He also made a crucial assertion that ‘there is no limit’ to its assistance. Pakistan is, therefore, panic-stricken as it is well aware of the Israeli military prowess. Reacting to the Israeli statement Pakistan’s Foreign Minister declared that Islamabad wants to improve its relations with Israel.
‘Whatever India needs to defend itself there is no limit. We are here to help our close friend India to defend itself especially against terrorism because terrorism is the problem of the world, and not only of India and Israel,’ said Dr. Malka. ‘Therefore, Israel is keen on providing the knowledge, technique and technology for counter-terrorism actions, to India because we really want to help our very important friend in its defence,’ said Dr. Malka as he expressed the sentiment of his nation.
“The attack on Pulwama is not on India, but us. Every Pashtun, Sindhi and Baloch believes so. We Pashtuns, Balochs and Sindhis have understood the game played by the Pakistanis. The fire ignited with the attack on the Indian soldiers will reach Rawalpindi. It will for sure. We will avenge the Pulwama attack. Till we get an independent Pashtunistan, Balochistan and Sindhudesh, our fight will continue. Pakistan government will have to pay for every drop of Indian soldiers’ blood. Our only message is that we are coming, and we will be the ones to kill you,” sharply warned Pashtun leader, Azad Khan.
‘Pashtun Liberation Front’ leader Azad Khan released an audio recording warning Pakistan’s Imran Khan government on Sunday. Azad Khan can be heard condemning the Pulwama attack in the audio. The sacrifices of the Indian brothers will be avenged, and the retaliation will begin from the Pakistan army camp, said Khan.
Every drop of martyrs’ blood will be avenged, warn Indian leaders
