    I want to call the news as ‘Four civiliances martyred’ instead of ‘Four terrorists killed’. If india takes action against terorirsts then it is arrogance and suppression If Pakistan takes action then it is reported as ‘Terrorists killed’. WHat kind of reporting pakistan does and what kind of double standards pakistan is adopting. THen what right pakistan has got to blame india for its action against terorrists? Recommend
