India furious at UN for rejecting surgical strike claim in Kashmir

Desperate India is furious at the United Nations for rejecting its black propaganda of surgical strike along the Line of Control in Kashmir.

The UN mission monitoring the ceasefire said it “has not directly observed” any firing along the LoC.

Responding to a question on the “surgical strikes” claim of Indian Army in Kashmir, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon’s spokesperson Stephane Dujarric said at a daily press briefing that the UN Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) had not “directly observed” any firing.

“They are obviously aware of the reports of these presumed violations and are talking to the relevant concerned authorities,” he said.

But Indian leadership led by hardliner Prime Minister Narendra Modi is still tweaking the script of the loosely choreographed drama in a desperate bid to fix plot holes in the storyline.

Showing anger at the UNMOGIP in extreme frustration, India’s Permanent Representative to the UN Syed Akbaruddin said the facts on the ground do not change whether somebody has “observed” it or not.

“I have nothing to say because what (Dujarric) said was ‘directly observed’. It’s a call that they have to take. I cannot place myself in their boots and directly observe something,” said the Indian envoy, when asked to comment on Dujarric’s remarks.

Akbaruddin said the “facts on the ground do not change whether somebody acknowledges or not. Facts are facts, we presented the facts and that’s where we stand.”

Meanwhile, Indian Home Minister Rajnath Singh after inaugurating a ‘smart toilet’ in New Delhi on Sunday when quizzed by reporters on doubts raised by Pakistan over the operation as India did not release the footage of the operation, said, “Just wait and watch,” Indian Express reported.

India claimed on September 29 that it conducted surgical strikes inside Kashmir in revenge attack in Srinagar that killed 18 soldiers.

On the other hand, a Japanese magazine issued a report ruling out the possibility of surgical strikes at the LoC, in the presence of Pakistan’s missile system. “Pakistan’s air surveillance is also highly advanced,” it stated.

The report further said that Indian military is not capable of conducting surgical strikes in the first place, for it lacks the defence equipment required in such operations.

Quite contrary to India’s coward attitude , Pakistani military took local and foreign journalists on a rare visit to forward locations along the Line of Control to debunk the myth of Indian surgical strikes.

The Pakistan Army vehemently rejected all the Indian claims of the so-called surgical strikes, saying that no such incident had taken place and the Indian lies had been exposed before the world.

It said anyone who tried any misadventure inside Pakistan will get response beyond his imagination.

“No such incident has taken place nor any such will be allowed to happen in future and if the adversary attempted so, it will be responded to with an ever strongest force,” Director General (DG) Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Lieutenant General Asim Saleem Bajwa said.

Briefing the visiting journalists, representing both foreign and local media, at two different locations along the LoC, Boxor and Hotsping, he said the Indian claims of carrying out surgical strikes across the LoC were baseless, absurd and unfounded, which were meant to not only misguide the Indian people but also the international community.

“No physical violation of the LoC has taken place, nor it will be allowed to happen by our resilient forces,” he reiterated in reply to a question.

“The Pakistan Army is fully prepared to tackle any misadventure and any such attempt will be responded to in a more effective and forceful manner,” he said.

General Officer Commanding of Bhimber Sector Major General Chiragh Haider apprised the journalists that no physical violation of the LoC happened on the night between September 28 and September 29 as claimed by the Indian Director General Military Operations.

The journalists were earlier given a full picture about the geographical and physical location at the Boxor Formation by Brigade Commander Brigadier Furqan Moazam. The entire scenario was drawn to make them understand that how the Indian forces had carried out unprovoked firing due to which a Pakistani soldier embraced Shahadat.

At the foothills of Boxor Formation, two villages of about 130,000 inhabitants are situated whose residents have no clue about any intrusion by the Indian troops. They confirmed that only crossfire had taken place on the particular night and nothing else.

The DG ISPR said the visit of media persons was arranged with the purpose that they should independently probe the Indian claim.

The DG ISPR said the ceasefire violation along the LoC was a routine affair and labelling it as a surgical strike was totally baseless and a pack of ‘white lies’. He said in 2003 Pakistan had announced unilateral ceasefire which was later ratified by India. Pakistan, he said, had been exercising maximum restraint by not initiating fire. The Pakistan side, he said, hardly initiated fire while in most of the cases it was the other side which had initiated firing and then it became necessary for Pakistan to silence the guns of the adversary through an effective response.

Lieutenant General Asim Bajwa said same was the case of the night between September 28 and Sept 29 when the Indian side opened fire of small to medium calibre at around 02:00 hours and the same was responded in a befitting manner. The fire from across the LoC continued till 08:00 hours with a matchless response from the Pakistani side and the same morning it was named as a “surgical strike”.

In that specific case, he questioned as to how Indian special forces personnel landed on the Pakistani soil and then left the area without coming into the knowledge of Pakistani troops who were deployed in an alert state.

“If they had sent paratroopers, what was their purpose or aim to be here and how they returned to their country?” he posed another question, referring to the Indian claims.

When asked to comment on the hotline contact between the DGMOs of the two countries, he said they did speak on the issue and the Pakistani DGMO lodged a protest on the incident of unprovoked Indian firing that claimed the lives of two Pakistani soldiers. He had straightaway rejected the claim of Indian DGMO regarding the surgical strike, stating that no such incident had taken place.

The DG ISPR stated that the UNMOGIP with seven posts on the Pakistani side of the LoC had been observing the situation while India had not been offering them access to locations on its side.

Answering a question, he said inadvertent crossing of the LoC was a routine matter and if any such case was found, it would be treated in accordance with the standing order procedures (SOP).

“We are prepared for any eventuality. The other side had been escalating the situation which is being minutely observed by the world forums,” he added.

Pointing out the situation in the Indian Held Kashmir (IHK), he said it was the 84th consecutive day of curfew in the IHK where the people had been demanding their right to franchise in accordance with the UN resolutions.

He said the struggle of the IHK people was completely indigenous. The present situation along the LoC, he added, was an Indian attempt to divert the attention of the world forums from the situation in the IHK, especially at the time of UN General Assembly session.

    Indian army is inferior. Pakistan's army is superior, their valiant efforts for liberating Kashmir from the last 70 years is a testament to their courage, resolve and keeping Indian army under their thumb. It inflicted irrecoverable losses on Indian army, due to which Indian army can barely stand If Pakistan army wants it can just walk across LOC and take control of entire Kashmir. But it is respecting UN security council resolutions and international norms. Three generations of Pakistanis are watching with their astounding amazement as how their Islamic Ghazi army is constantly repulsing the cowardly baniya army, seventy years and counting. Watch out Indians, a combined 47+65+71+99 effort is underway by Pakistan army and fifth time is the charm, until the sixth time comes. Just so we all know, the Pakistan army never won a war, despite usurping most of the nations resources and power. Never won a war and you read it right, unless war means attacking its own civilians with artillery and fighter jets which they have done very successfully in Balochistan, FATA, KP and Karachi. Onward march Islamic Ghazis, if Sindh ever wants to leave the Islamic republic, be ready to show them.

However your handful bosses of paranoid army, religious leaders and politico have managed to fool you common people for the past 70 years. They are leading a lavish life at the cost of yours. Awake.

    Ha ha. India ki Army inferior hai? Just like Pakistan you also say that India is inferior. Ha ha . Agar Pakistan superior hota to terrorism ka support nahi leta.

But pak doesn’t have courage to accept it.

    Pakistani Army is the greatest Army in the whole world and in all History.
    It has done feats of such valour that its operations are case studies in most military schools around the world.

    It sent 90,000 prisoners of war and surrendered in one of History's largest surrender to make India feed all the 90,000 prisoners for free. India cannot do something like that. Pakistani Army consistently does a lot of heroic deeds that no army in the entire world can do or will dare to do: Abandon its dead soldiers in a battlefield and refuse to receive the dead bodies and acknowledge them as its own like it did in the Kargil War. Only eleven years after the Kargil war, the Army included names of 453 soldiers and officers killed during that conflict.

    Pakistan army is the greatest. It will defeat India soon.

    Izzat loot jaane ke baad mein porki army trying to show that they are smart enough to trap India in un but watching the Pakistani news channels porkis now wanted to attack their own army for hiding truth since independence.

    Pakistan people should think wisely to know the truth. First, understand that Pakistan and China have border issues with India. but the terrorism is happening only in Kashmir. China is concentrating on their development postponing border issues for time being. Even if Pakistan thinks that Kashmir is theirs, they should not be attacking India to get Kashmir. POK is the result of political foolishness done by Congress party in India. Pakistan should not think India will do the same mistake again. Also, if they think, using nuclear weapons can threaten India, India can easily respond with nuclear weapons and Pakistan won't be there in the map. Now, Pakistan people should understand that terrorists are crossing their border to enter India and attack Indians. Without Pakistan army's support this is not possible. Pakistan cannot accept the fact that India has done surgical attacks in POK to destroy terrorist camps. If they accept, the question would be why they are allowing terrorist camps in their land.

    In a BBC documentary on Youtube, which is based on the 71 War, you see the 90,000 Pakistani Soldiers standing in a line. They are asked to lay arms, move a step back. They do so obediently, in a symbolic gesture of surrender of War. General Niazi remains unperturbed. He says " this happens in a War". He by the way, was one of the most decorated Army officer Pakistan ever had. He then moves on to sign the surrender document. A true solider would have shot himself rather than signing the surrender document.

    I suggest Pakistanis to go watch the video, every time they think they are "superior". If 90,000 soliders cannot muster the courage to fight till the last breadth, what would motivate them to do so. They lost to an irregular gorilla fighting force and a "baniya" army.
