In a bold move, India launched surgical strikes on 10 terror launch pads and terror camps across the LoC on Wednesday night at PoK. Earlier today the DGMO Lt General Ranbir Singh confirmed about the attacks during a press conference saying that the operation killed terrorists who were planning to infiltrate the border.
As soon as news of this attack broke, citizens expressed their joy on micro blogging website Twitter. They congratulated the government for taking strict actions against Paksistan and the hashtag #ModiPunishesPak stayed a top trend. Netizens sung praises for Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying that this move was highly required.

Though, India had moved to declare Pakistan a terrorist state and started working towards isolating it on the global fora, these surgical strikes seemed to be something which made Indians joyous.
