India’s icon and legendary industrialist, Ratan Tata took to Twitter on 27th February, 2019, to praise the leadership of Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, and hail the Indian Air Force (IAF) for carrying out strikes on Jaish-e-Mohammed’s terror camp in Pakistan. Tata’s tweet read, “We congratulate the PM and the IAF for the successful air strikes on the terrorist training camps which Pakistan has claimed never existed! India is proud of the firm action taken in retaliation to the suicide attack on our soldiers a few days ago.”
On 26th February, 2019, India bombed and destroyed terrorist organisation Jaish-e-Mohammed’s (JeM) biggest training camp in Balakot in Pakistan’s restive Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, about 80-km from the Line of Control (LoC), eliminating a large number of terrorists, trainers and senior commanders. The air strikes came twelve days after the JeM carried out a deadly suicide attack in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district that killed 40 of our CRPF soldiers.
