Priyank Dhyani | 5 years ago | Reply This proves we are basically the same country. Indian BSF said the same and have given a 'befitting' response against your 'befitting' response which was again because of India's 'befitting' response. Partition was a bad idea!
RawIsWar | 5 years ago | Reply India is mobilizing artillery according to reports. Pak should stop playing this dangerous game. This time there is no Clinton to intercede on Pakistan's behalf.
