Discussing aftermath of Surgical attack on Pakistan. How will Pakistan react? What is India's strategy hereafter?


India has carried out surgical strikes targeting “launch pads” for terrorists across the Line of Control (LoC), the Army said on Thursday. The strike was carried out on Wednesday night, senior military and diplomatic sources said at a media briefing at the Ministry of External Affairs.

Now how will Pakistan retaliate to it. What is India's strategy hereafter?

Everything depends on Pakistan, whether they will stop this cross border terrorism.



Rahul Singhla , Thinker, Blogger, UPSC aspirant. Sep, 29 2016


These types of attacks are not openly declared to the people generally. Why this time?



Narendra Singh , Veteran Sep, 29 2016


All pressures like economic, physical, ecological should be applied.



Malik , An engineer turned into a student of conflict Sep, 29 2016


The amount of people pro war right now is ridiculous. Most of them have probably never been in a war torn region. They are really underestimating the power of nuclear weapons. Cities get wiped in seconds. People should see the current state of Syria.


Rahul Sharma , Data Scientist at MuSigma Sep, 29 2016


Just wanted to highlight an important argument from Indian side. India considers POK (Pakistan Occupied Kasmir) as India's own territory which was illegaly occupied by Pakistan. Therefore, these attacks carried out in POK cannot be labeled as military strike against Pakistan. Instead, this strike was carried out in Indian territory against terrorists (non-state actors as per Pakistani government) of Pakistani origin who had set base camps in POK. As per India, any Pakistani military personnel killed/injured were the ones aiding these terrorists.

Like Bangaldesh all other countries should be taken on board and such action should be supported.



Ishita Nangia , Not it. Sep, 29 2016


Sir, do you mean taken on board in a diplomatic capacity, like boycotting SAARC or in a military capacity?


Sakshi Sharma , Freelancer Designer Sep, 29 2016


As an Indian living in Mumbai, this makes me happy (we're finally taking some action!), but also scares the shit out of me. While the nuke threats are just empty words, there's no denying that this might trigger some of the other terrorist groups in Pakistan (or their government, which is constantly accused of funding terrorism). And that sort of aggression never goes well for us Indian civilans. Having experienced 26/11 pretty closely, I dare not imagine what another one of those attacks will unleash.

If the Indian Army had not retaliated, the same terrorists from those terror launchpads would be on their way to carrying out another 26/11. We have to nip them in the bud!


Narendra Singh , Veteran Sep, 29 2016


As far as this operation is concerned it is called off, but Indians should take up more such operations because Pakistan is not someone who will stop. We are also prepared.



Sonali Rawat , bla bla Sep, 29 2016

Vikram Gupta , Exploring, learning, believing Sep, 29 2016


Sir, do you endorse these operations as just "hit back" operations or should the Indian army wrest the initiative and attack first?


Nikhil Dua , BITS alumnus, Market research analyst at Cred Sep, 29 2016


Will this attack not affect Indian diplomatic pressure against Pakistan?


Vikram Gupta , Exploring, learning, believing Sep, 29 2016


What pressure? What good has this "pressure" done till now?


Himanshu Shekhar , Studying Computer Science in MIT Pune Sep, 29 2016


Everyone knows that there are 3 power centers in Pakistan. We are ready to fight with two of them, Government by beating them diplomatically. To army we have shown what we are capable of, but what about the third power center that is terrorists. Aren't they already inside India?


Vikram Gupta , Exploring, learning, believing Sep, 29 2016


The third power center also lies within Pakistan itself. They infiltrate India, but their source lies in Pakistan itself. The surgical strikes were aimed at these centers, as mentioned in the media brief. I believe such acts by the Army will help in tackling all the 3 centers you have mentioned.


Abhishek Sharma , Engineer @ IBM Sep, 29 2016


Thanks a lot to Indian army. We have been waiting for this from a long long time. We have lost our brothers and sisters in this proxy war and all we got to hear was kadi ninda. We have lives in fear of terrorists from over a decade. What happened today fills me with hope and pride and confidence.


Col Arvind , Served in the army for 24 years, now work on Sep, 29 2016


This might be against few of those diplomatic decisions and ties that India has created but one needs to understand that Pakistan is someone who wouldn't stop at any cost. Sorry to say but it's like a mad dog which needs to be whipped once it twice to keep it in check.

Surgical strike was one way to sort them, now India should focus on internal political aspects as a way forward

Ashima Singh , Exploring Sep, 29 2016


Very well put sir! Though isn't sustained army presence the way to go? It seems like Pakistan is just riding out the storm, they know that the Indian government would stop at the 'decent' amount of retaliation. Probably it's worth it to give them a rude shock?


Ishita Nangia , Not it. Sep, 29 2016


I might be naive in asking this, but why called off? It would've been a brilliant opportunity to drive fear into the heart of the Pakistani Army. Why do we always stop at supposedly adequate retaliation?


Sonali Rawat , bla bla Sep, 29 2016


Sir to note that 19 Indian soldiers were killed too though in return too, more attacks will mean more Indian soldiers too.


Narendra Singh , Veteran Sep, 29 2016


Revenge has been taken.
Actual causalities have been recorded as 38, there were few causalities indoor too. This number is likely to be very high. As decleared by DGMO the operation has been called off.



Vikram Gupta , Exploring, learning, believing Sep, 29 2016


In the attack carried out last night, there were ZERO Indian casualties. And the casualties on the other side were definitely those who would've led to more deaths on our side. Preemptive action seems is the way to go!


Vikram Gupta , Exploring, learning, believing Sep, 29 2016


That analogy makes a lot of sense. Sir, what would internal politics aspects entail? To the common man's eye, it seems that all diplomacy level talks have been huge failures.
