2019 general elections, Rahul Gandhi, Jaish-e-mohammed, Masood Azhar

Neither BJP, nor voters will let Congress forget Rahul Gandhi's Masood Azhar 'ji' gaffe

The election pitch will reach a crescendo with BJP branding Congress as a 'terror sympathiser', one that raised questions over the IAF strikes in Balakot as well.

Jaish-e-mohammed, Reuters, New York Times, Pulwama terror attack

Hey New York Times, Pulwama was not an ‘explosion’, just like 9/11 wasn’t 'a plane crash'

We forgot 26/11. Pathankot. Uri. Let's not forget Pulwama now

Iaf airstrike, Jaish-e-mohammed, Pulwama, Narendra Modi

Pakistan took international media to the site. But remember, no one could actually visit the camp, or the madrassa, which was allegedly struck by the IAF. How much credence to reports of no damage then hold?

Pakistan violates indian airspace, Jaish-e-mohammed, Neerja bhanot, Maulana masood azhar

Remembering Neerja: The hijack that became a brutal reality for India, the woman who refused to succumb

If Neerja stood for not giving up in a pressured situation in 1986, Masood Azhar's release in 1999 was a tale of succumbing to pressure. Both were contrasting stories of Indians put in terrible situations, consistently by forces from across the border.
