Protesting to stop drones drones from killing these barbarians but no protest or condemnation whatsoever when they are the ones to carry out an attack against our soldiers!! Very shameful

Our Army is fighting a war and in war these things do happen. We should feel pride in sacrifices of our brave soldiers. Our downside as a nation is that when few barbarians are killed, their supporters lodge FIR and call them Shaheed but we cannot do anything for our brave soldiers.
