The reality of Balakot strikes
43 days after the Indian Air Force’s strike at Balakot, the Pak establishment has finally opened the gates of the Jaish-e-Mohammad terror camp at Balakot to international media — innocuously masking the huge internal damage caused to the various buildings targeted with a quick rebuild job, and the trademark subterfuge of the spin doctors at the ISPR — led from the front by the wily Major General Asif Ghafoor himself, who unfortunately now carries the ignominy of having been caught lying on umpteen occasions in the last few days. Living up to his reputation, Major General Ghafoor took the visitors everywhere — except the targets that India hit; masking his visit well with the famed ISPR doctrine of ‘delay, confuse and deny’. This analysis aims to unmask the dubiousness of this event; and how the DG ISPR tried to mislead everyone into believing that the IAF strikes hit ‘nothing. https://medium.com/@sameerjoshi73/debunking-the-isprs-antithesis-of-a-precision-strike-at-balakot-2a4a9e7cc587 more
If Pakistan & their Generals are so desperate that Indians can't hit them and they are just waiting for us to strike, why not take up their Invitation and give them one more round of surgery strike? more

What is important is that the enemy has understood that there can be air strikes deep into its territory. An element of fear has been instilled into the enemy, which even a nuclear device would not have served the purpose. If some one wants to verify what has exactly happened upon the strikes being conducted, he should have visited the site. Let us not challenge the Army and seek proof of the damage. Whether the Opposition challenges the claims or the Ruling party clarifies, it does not require proof.
The very fact that international media was made to visit the site after a substantial lapse of time speaks for the act of penetration into enemy territory to instill the element of fear is enough to prove that the incident happened.
If the mission was the act of taking over territory like what happened in Bangla Desh in 1971, then matters would have been different. Should there have been a treaty of peace after the act or another Simla pact to establish the air strike that would satisfy someone? more
I think since immediately after the blast they did not take the visitors there is no point in taking them after nearly two months when they would have had lot of time to do it as per their requirements.People should have abstained from visiting the same .
They will only show what they want to show and not what you want to see so there is no point in discussing the issue. more
