    Blame this on Indian army planners. India does not manufacture sniper rifles, so they have to be brought from abroad, and since number of sniper rifle required are not in millions, they could be brought with simplified tendering. Yet, Soldiers are still using Cold war era rifles.

    Heavy firing exchanges on LoC,Three Pakistan Army soldiers injured

    JAMMU: Heavy firing exchanges continued on the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir's Rajouri district on Monday after Pakistan resorted to unprovoked firing at Indian positions, a defence official said.

    "Pakistani Army initiated indiscriminate firing of small arms, automatics and mortars at 6.05 p.m. on Indian Armyposts along LoC in Sunderbani sector in Rajouri," defence ministry spokesman, Lt. Colonel Manish Mehta told IANS.

    "The Indian Army posts are retaliating strongly and effectively. The firing is presently on," he added.

    Pakistan Army chief Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa had some unusual advice when top officers gathered for his first speech last year – read an American academic’s book on how India has succeeded in keeping the military out of politics.

    The army has no business trying to run the government, Bajwa told the gathering of army officers of Rawalpindi Garrison at the General Headquarters auditorium in the last week of December, according to The Nation newspaper.

    Bajwa’s first speech as army chief, described by the daily as “an articulation of his vision”, was delivered “in a poised manner” and his views were communicated “to his officers in unequivocal terms”.

    The general urged the officers to read Army and Nation: The Military and Indian Democracy since Independence, written by Steven I Wilkinson, the Nilekani Professor of India and South Asian Studies at Yale University.

    The 2015 book, which was well reviewed in India and the West, draws on comprehensive data to explore how and why India has succeeded in keeping its military out of politics when other countries have failed. It looks at political and foreign policies and strategic decisions that have made the “army safe for Indian democracy”.

    The book also details why India’s democratic process has been a success.

    It has been widely reported that Bajwa reads a lot about India, including reports in the media and books about the country. His colleagues have said his interest in India dates back to his days as a young major serving on the Line of Control in 1992.

    Brig (retired) Feroz Hassan Khan, who was Bajwa’s commanding officer on the LoC, told the Hindustan Times that the man in what is usually seen as the most powerful position in Pakistan also does not have a “visceral hatred” of India.

    Some have credited Bajwa for a reduction in tensions along the LoC and international border in Jammu and Kashmir though attacks by Pakistan-based terror groups have continued unabated.

    Bajwa told the officers that the Pakistan Army “must remain within its constitutionally defined role” and “alluded that an impression of a competition between the civilians and the military is counter-productive for the country”, The Nation reported.

    The report added that three months after becoming army chief, it could be “discerned that while Gen Bajwa believes in civilian supremacy, he will also not do anything that upends that existing structures and dynamics”. When a controversy recently erupted about land allocated to his predecessor, Raheel Sharif, a “sharp, almost edgy, rebuttal came from the military”.

    It also said the comparison between the personal styles of Sharif and Bajwa “cannot be starker”. While Sharif “basked and glowed under the glare of television and press cameras”, Bajwa “likes to go about his job without pomp and show”.

    His trips to the frontlines or speeches to troops have “lacked the breathless coverage that was the defining factor” of Sharif’s tenure and there has been no attempt to portray Bajwa as a “parallel, competing powerhouse, with strong political undertones”.

    Bajwa, in his public remarks, has said the army will support and assist the civilian government in the national interest. Officials were quoted as saying that “United we rise” was the theme adopted by the military and its media arm under Bajwa’s leadership.

    ISLAMABAD: A day after an Islamic State group (IS) bomber killed nearly 80 pilgrims at Pakistan's most famous Sufi shrine in Sindh, security forces claimed to have eliminated around 100 militants in a countrywide crackdown.

    The suicide blast at the shrine of Lal Shahbaz Qalandar was one of the deadliest ever in Pakistan and came after several other extremist strikes earlier this week despite the army's ongoing offensive against militants. Following Thursday's attack on the 13th century shrine, army chief Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa pledged, "Each drop of the nation's blood shall be avenged, and avenged immediately. No more restraint for anyone."

    The military also launched a search-and-strike operation in Khyber Agency's Shalman near the Pak-Afghan border, using heavy artillery. Many casualties might have taken place there, security officials said.

    Of the 100-odd terrorists killed on Friday, 46 were accounted for, according to the army's Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) release on Friday.

    Paramilitary Sindh Rangers claimed to have killed 18 terrorists in overnight operations in the province. Of these, seven were killed in a shootout on a highway near Kathor when troops were returning from Sehwan.

    An official release said that 13 terrorists were killed in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in the northwest. Four terrorists were slain in Lower Orakzai of Orakzai Agency. Eleven were killed in Karachi, according to the Rangers. Government said scores of suspects were also arrested.

    Weapons and hand grenades were found on the slain terrorists. Political observers said the army crackdown seemed a predictable response. "When you (army) have information about the presence of terrorists, why don't you act before they strike?" asked Mazhar Abbas, a security analyst.

    Of the eight terror attacks since February 13, when a cameraman of a news channel, Samaa, was killed in Karachi, 13 people were killed on Monday and more than 70 injured when a bomb ripped through a rally on Mall Road in Lahore.

    The same day, bombings were carried out in Quetta, the capital of Baluchistan, and in South Waziristan bordering Afghanistan. On Tuesday, two members of a bomb disposal squad were killed trying to dismantle a bomb in Quetta. On Wednesday, five people were killed when a suicide bomber struck in Mohmand tribal region.

    The same day, a suicide attack on a court van killed its driver and injured four judges. Many of these attack were carried out by Jamaat-ul-Ahrar, a banned group linked to Pakistani Taliban. Following the military operation in North Waziristan, many militants, especially those associated with the Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan, moved to eastern Afghanistan, the area considered outside the control of Afghan government.
    Many of these militants later joined the Islamic State terror group when it began recruitment in the region. In the past, when terror attacks have taken place in Pakistan, Islamabad has pointed fingers at Kabul and blamed elements in the Afghan intelligence agency and India's R&AW.
    Kabul has accused Pakistan of discriminating between "good" and "bad" Taliban and blamed Pakistan for supporting terror groups on its soil for attacks in Afghanistan and India. They also point at the killing of a number of top terrorists, including Osama bin Laden and former Afghan Taliban chief, Mullah Akhtar Mansour, in US strikes inside Pakistan.

    While we all know the good terrorist is a dead terrorist.... I have few doubts

    1) This action was taken with in 1 day of the bombing.. ...So did they know the details of this terrorists?
    2) If they knew it already what were they waiting for?
    3) What was the collateral damage?

    i believe this is just to satisfy the local population and prevent them from turning on Army. they want to the local population to believe that Army is at least going after these terrorists to avenge the death of those civilians.
