In a well planned and well executed surgical attack Indian Army came out trumps and the cheered the people across India in general and the defence forces personnel in particular to enter into such attacks to teach Pakistan a lesson. This major attack will impse pressure on Pakistan and they will think twice before going on a terror offensives in future. But that does not mean that we are up in gamesmanship and do chest thumping at this stage when our borders are facing constant terror attacks. Modi is aware of this and that is why his government is not in any mood to release surgical strike video and that is correct. The critics and opposition may to backbiting and wish to know the details only to play pranks at the government. Again by parting the video clippings we are facing a ticklish situation of sharing the tricks of the attack to our old enemy and that is wise at this stage. The opposition has no right to claim the video clippings for their view as it is a close secret and not meant for public screening. We are in no way ready to share the surgical attack video to make it universal.
