With so many operations taking place, a lot of people ask—how well are our soldiers protected? This pic should give an idea.👇

RR soldiers with ballistic shield, ammo for Carl Gustaf, AKs, and the bullet proof jackets they wear. #IndianArmy 

The terr0rists who infiltrate…
2/4…use steel core bullets which can pierce through the bullet proof jackets. This is why a heavier ballistic shield is needed. To give u an idea of how bad a steel bullet can be, check the pic below. The ballistic shield of French Police commandos after #ParisAttack 2015. 👇
3/4 In Jan 2017, forces wr shocked to see a CRPF soldier get hit by a bullet despite carrying a bullet-proof shield. These ammunition wr modified with help of #Cheeni tech of encasing bullet with hard steel core. This is ILLEGAL! Ops hv only become tougher for #IndianArmy.

श्रीमान @rautsanjay61 विचारतायत की, नेहरूंशी वैर का? राऊतांनी विचारलेल्या प्रश्नाचे उत्तर मी या थ्रेडमध्ये देतोय,
नेहरूंनी त्यांच्या कारकीर्दीत अभिव्यक्ती स्वातंत्र्याची आणि लोकशाही मूल्यांची अनेकदा गळचेपी केली. त्याची ही काही उदाहरणे (१/n)
नेहरूंनी केंद्रीय कायदामंत्री #बाबासाहेब #आंबेडकर यांना डावलून गोपालस्वामी अय्यंगार यांच्या हातून कलम ३७०चा मसुदा तयार करून घेतला आणि लोकसभेत बळजबरीने मंजूरही करून घेतला. देशाच्या कायदामंत्र्याला डावलून घटनादुरुस्ती झाल्याची ही भारतातली एकमेव घटना आहे. (२/n)
कलम ३७० हे भारत आणि भारतीयांवर अन्याय करणारे आहे असे #बाबासाहेब #आंबेडकर यांचे ठाम मत होते. कारण, नेहरूंनी जम्मू-काश्मीर विधानसभेला अमर्याद अधिकार देऊ केले होते. (३/n)

Relationship between defence and games is not recent

The relation is as old as human civilization

What we call 'sports' today began with the idea of self-defence

I am proud that Subedar @Neeraj_chopra1 has added his name to list of great sportspersons like Major Dhyan Chand, Capt. Milkha Singh, Col Rajyavardhan SRathore and Captain Vijay Kumar

Everyone is busy criticising #Taliban and simping #Afghanistan while scaremongering Hindus of India about #Taliban.

Here is what these people don't understand.
For 50 years, Afghanistan has swung from coups to conflicts. In 1973 an Afghan general ousted the king and declared himself president. Five years later, Afghan communists assassinated him and seized power.The Soviet Union invaded the next year to prop up the unpopular communists.
This sparked a decade-long guerrilla war. The U.S. funneled billions of dollars via Pakistan to anti-Soviet mujahideen fighters from across the Islamic world—including the Saudi jihadist Osama bin Laden—and they eventually forced the Soviets to withdraw.

in all the discussions about #Afghanistan and Pakistan's independence, we seem to have forgotten about Occupied and Illegally Annexed Kashmir. this is what is happening: school teachers are told that if they don't hoist the Indian flag tomorrow, they will lose their jobs> #IOJK
>shopkeepers have been directed to not shut down tomorrow or their shops will be seized. we've already seen how the #Indian police & #army have been breaking into peoples' shops & forcibly opening them. @POTUS talks about democracy and democratic values. here's a test case. #IOJK
>@POTUS has to decide. is the talk about democracy and rights mere rhetoric when it comes to a 'strategic partner' or will be walk the talk? #India #Occupation #IOJK

Has we ever told to China about historical facts in clear terms like #TreatyofChushul
1.General Zorawar Singh captured Ladakh, Kargil, Suru Valley, Baltistan, Gilgit, Hunza and Yagistan principalities and included them in kingdom of Maharaja Gulab Singh in 1846.
2. In 1841, Zorawar Singh invaded western Tibet, possibly to gain control over the lucrative pashmina wool trade, though some scholars believe he wanted to build a land bridge between Ladakh and Nepal for a Sikh-Gorkha alliance against the British.
