The ISI realises that the targeted killing of RSS leaders would cause communal tension. If such killings continue on a regular basis, Punjab and the neighbouring states would become volatile and this could well become a good launchpad for the Khalistan terrorists to operate.

On August 6 2016, two motorcycle-borne assailants with their faces covered shot dead Gagneja at the Red Cross Market area in Jalandhar, Punjab.
Pakistan’s education minister Shafqat Mahmood at the UNESCO meet criticised the Ayodhya verdict in India and said that it was contrary to the values of religious freedom. Just like the Kashmir issue, this too has rightly got no traction.
When we talk terror, fake currency and a state policy to bleed India, there is one thing in common – Pakistan. The failed state is known to meddle in the affairs of India and despite facing an imminent collapse, Pakistan continues to make India its main policy.
While Pakistan continues to meddle in the affairs of Kashmir, it has now raked up the Ayodhya issue as well. Pakistan’s education minister Shafqat Mahmood at the UNESCO meet criticised the Ayodhya verdict and said that it was contrary to the values of religious freedom. This reckless statement by Pakistan comes at a time when the Muslims of India have called for peace in the aftermath of the verdict and said that they want a closure to this case that has dragged on for centuries.

New Delhi, Nov 08: In a clear attempt to instigate the Sikhs, Pakistan has put up a banner in the Kartarpur Sahib Gurudwara premises that speaks about a bomb that the Indian Air Force dropped in 1971.

However, this evil design could not be materialised due to the blessing of WAHEGURU JI (Almighty ALLAH). The Said Bomb landed into Sri Khoo Sahib (Sacred Well) and this Darbar Sahib remained unhurt.

New Delhi, Nov 07: India has raised concerns over the video relating to the Kartarpur corridor in which pictures of slain Khalistan leaders were displayed in the background. India said that it hoped that Pakistan would not show that they support such things which are anti-India in nature.
After the official video was released, Pakistan then changed the same. It released another version on Twitter.

This observation comes at a time, when India has consistently maintained that no concrete action has been taken against the Lashkar-e-Tayiba.
The Indian Army has gone after the top commanders in the Valley and not just some run of the mill foot soldiers. The Indian armed forces’ aim seems to be to break the spine of terrorism lodged up in the Pakistan looking to infiltrate India
The artillery firing that the Indian Army resorted to in a bid to destroy terror camps in Pakistan has been termed as unprovoked by Pakistan media. Further, Pakistan also claimed that nine Indian soldiers were killed in the attack.
