14th of February 2019 – while the world celebrated Valentine’s Day, India saw one of the deadliest terrorist attacks in the history. A suicide bomber named Adil Dar crashed into CRPF convoy, leaving 44 unarmed CRPF jawans martyred in the cowardly attack. Jaish-e-Mohammed, a terrorist organization based in Pakistan headed by Masood Azhar took responsibility of the attacks within minutes. A Surgical Strike was always on cards following this cowardice by Pakistani terrorists.
Following these attacks, PM Modi in strong words vowed retaliation against Pakistan. A surgical strike, just like in 2016 avenging the URI attacks was an option to avenge the blood of our martyrs! Today, on the morning of 26th February, 12 days after the attacks, the much awaited befitting response was given to Pakistan at 3:30 AM. Even in it’s wildest dreams, Pakistan would not have anticipated that India would take the biggest step this time: 12 Mirage 2000 fighters penetrated deep into Pakistan Occupied Kashmir(PoK) and destroyed 3 massive terrorist camps in PoK. One of those camps, located in Balakot, is said to be the biggest JeM terror camp. The Indian Air Force, which carried out these precision strikes using 1000 Kg bombs, claims that over 25 of the top JeM commanders have been eliminated.
However, just like the previous time, Pakistan has been left red-faced and they are claiming this adventure of the Indian Air Force to be a hoax by the Indian government. The Pakistani Army, in a statement issued this morning, alleged that the Indian Air Force did enter the POK, but they left soon after the PAF chased them away after releasing a payload.
Indian aircrafts’ intrusion across LOC in Muzafarabad Sector within AJ&K was 3-4 miles.Under forced hasty withdrawal aircrafts released payload which had free fall in open area. No infrastructure got hit, no casualties. Technical details and other important information to follow.— Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor (@OfficialDGISPR) February 26, 2019
This statement is nothing but a lie by the Pakistani Army. Here are 5 points which debunk this satement by Major General Asif Ghafoor and expose Pakistan as a terrorist, lying nation just like every other time and prove that IAF Surgical Strike 2.0 was a big success!
The Locals Heard the Surgical Strike!
As per the reports by BBC Official Hindi, the locals living in the area of the attacks heard loud explosions. There has been some infrastructure damage in the houses around the area and Indian fighter jets were seen hovering over the PoK soon after the Surgical Strike 2.0, followed by Pakistan Air Force F-16s which were too late to reach the spot. Watch the entire interview here:

More such claims by the local villagers have surfaced. Pakistan Government can continue living in denial mode of this Surgical Strike forever, just like it denied the previous one, but how will they shut the mouths of so many people living in the area?
2. Statement by Hasan Akhbar:
The Director of Islamabad based Jinnah Institute think tank, Hasan Akhbar, denied the Surgical Strike by India. However, he did admit that the Indian Air Force dropped payloads in various sectors. This means, Indian jets did drop multiple payloads at different places. If this isn’t a Surgical Strike, if this isn’t an attack, then what else would you call it Mr. Hasan Akhbar? He contradicted the statement by the Pakistan Army which claimed that there was only 1 payload released by the IAF.
3. Location of the Payloads:
In his statement, Mr. Hasan Akhbar also claimed that payloads were released in the Kyber-Pakhtunkhwa province. Interesting fact is that Balakot is also located in this very province. Moreover, this province is about 80 Kilometers away from the LOC. Pakistan Army claimed the IAF jets entered as much as 3-4 miles in PoK. However, as per Hasan Akhbar, the jets crossed 80 KMs from LOC and in fact, even crossed the international border. How else would they release payloads in that area? Looks like the Pakistani Military cannot measure even distance properly anymore, or maybe it is still in a state of shock after the Surgical Strikes by India!
4. Conflicting Statements by the Pakistan Army:
As per a report by Aljazeera, Pakistan Army itself has given contradictory statements with regards to the location of the incident. In fact, as of now, they have not even confirmed the exact location. The initial reports by the Pakistan Army did state that the incident took place near Balakot. However, in the following statements, they claimed that the incident took place in PoK itself and the Indian Mirage Jets did not penetrate more than 4 miles into their territory.
5. Statement by Pakistan Foreign Minister:
As per the statement given by Pakistan’s foreign minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi, the Indian Jets lasted for about 3 minutes in Pakistan Airspace. Let us understand, that these Mirage 2000 Jets have a top speed of 2000 KM/ hour. If the jets were present in the Pakistan Airspace for 3 minutes, how did they manage to penetrate only 4 miles? The statements given by the Foreign Minister are not in line with those given by the army. Basic physics sense doesn’t prevail here. Probably, since these statements came in an abrupt manner, the cross-reference is missing. Or maybe the Pakistanis have not rehearsed their parts well. In either case, their claim that the Surgical Strike 2.0 is a hoax is mere bullshit.
Soon after the Surgical Strike took place, Prime Minister Imran Khan called a special meeting. The Pakistanis seem to be in a state of panic. If the Surgical Strike is a hoax, why is Pakistan even panicking? Why does it feel so humiliated and why did PM Imran Khan call for action? No matter how much Pakistan denies this, their lies have been exposed by us here.
Lastly, we at Just Write Things are extremely proud of our Air Force for conducting these Surgical Strikes in such a precise manner without harming any civilian on their side. We are proud to be living in the same country as these brave men! Jai Hind. Jai Bharat. Bharat Mata ki Jay!
