Pakistan may continue its aggression with its asymmetric war by targeting Indian civilians and our forces by using terror, the country be well warned and reminded of the prowess of the Indian Armed Forces. 

Republic Media Network's Syed Suhail brings you a special report from the International Border in Rajasthan where in 1971, Pakistan's attempt to invade India was blown into smithereens by India. 

Just as Pakistan's attempt to infiltrate India's Nowshera sector in Jammu and Kashmir led to the felling of its prized F-16 by our own MIG-21 Bison, the battle of Longewala in 1971 had led to similar repurcussions for the country, however in much larger scale. Such was the glory of Indian soldiers in the battle that it was immortalised in the film 'Border' by director J P Dutta.

The video shows how even then a foolish attempt by Pakistan led to its defeat in the iconic battle of Longewala. The remnants of its humiliating defeat is seen as over 50 tanks belonging to the Pakistan Forces is left in India.

In the video one can see a Pakistani tank with its official number and marks and symbols intact. One can also see the Border Post from where Pakistan entered India.

The cowardly Pakistani Army also needs this reminder as it continues its aggression in the backdrop as its PM Imran Khan tries to harp a peace tune in his attempt to portray the country as a peace-seeking nation.

Even as Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman was being released by the country which it tried to sell as  a peace gesture towards India, the Pakistan Army targeted Indian civilians in its continuous ceasefire violations, tragically killing a 9-month-old baby and 5-year-old child - siblings - and their mother, in Poonch.

J&K Police officials confirmed the deaths of the three innocent Indians by the Pakistan firing in Salotri village of Jhalas area in Jammu and Kashmir.
