The pre-drawn attack on a high security Indian Airforce bas at Pathankot is the second such strike on a airforce base. This air base is the home of MIG-21 and MIG-25 fighter planes and it appears that the attack is pre planned but not well executed thanks to our brave soldiers and the army officers. We are in the midst of a major terror attack in Pathankot and that hit our peace talks with Pakistan. March of terror saw Indian security forces have to take cover and attack the enemy after 10 hour gun battle. As the Home Ministry feels that there will be zero tolerance on terror we look at the terror strikes as a real shock. India’s policy which is that we want a good relationship with neighbours and other countries across the world, but if there is a terror attack against us, the government is forced to give a befitting reply. There will be zero tolerance on terror and that has been the policy of this government through its tenure. As an eye wash Pakistan government has also condemned this attack on us. The security forces and intelligence agencies have to be commended for having worked fast and prevented a bigger incident. This attack is yet another eye opener for the Government to keep vigil in the border area and not to give scope for the enemy to cross the border during the winter season to cause terror strikes.
