Hafiz Saeed, who decided to term the Akhnoor terror attack a surgical strike against India, got many of his facts wrong. To begin with he stated that the mujahideens cleaned up 10 rooms, killed 30 soldiers and cleaned up the entire camp.
He called it ‘their version of a surgical strike’ although not once did he utter that it was his outfit, the Lashkar-e-Tayiba, which carried out the attack. He spoke about cleaning up 10 rooms, destroying the camp and killing 30. However, the fact of the matter is that three soldiers died after the terrorists set ablaze and shot at a camp.
