War is not a option, as it will make thousand more soldiers to lost their lives.

Right now India doesn’t needs war with Pakistan rather than it needs a war inside it. A war a against those anti-nationals who come in support of terrorist everytime a attack happens.

India needs to eradicate these anti-nationals completely. Because these are the people who support terrorism and terrorists , and every supporter of terrorism shall first be punished.
