Arvind Kejriwal, Delhi Chief Minister’, has congratulated Indian media for “exposing” Pakistan’s false propaganda over the surgical strikes carried out by the Indian Army on terror launch pads in PoK region. However, he wants the government to expose Pakistan’s false propaganda internationally.
India Army had inflicted “severe damages” to terrorists and their abode in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir in the surgical strikes on the intervening night of September 28 and 29. Some Pakistani soldiers were also killed in the strikes. However, Pakistan denied the surgical strikes and instead made attempts to convince the world that India and Indian Army were lying about the surgical strikes.
In a clever video, Kejriwal had earlier congratulated Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Indian Army for conducting the surgical strikes. However, he had indirectly asked the PM to submit proof of the strikes to expose Pakistan’s false propaganda.
Kejriwal’s remarks created a huge controversy. On Wednesday, Indian Express carried a detailed report of the devastation inflicted on terrorists by the Indian Army during the surgical strikes. The report said that bodies of the terrorists were carried in trucks for secret burials. Later in the day, several other TV news channels also provided clinching ‘evidence’ to prove the veracity of the surgical strikes.
Kejriwal took to the social media to congratulate the media. But still, he said the government should now make efforts to expose Pakistan internationally.
One wonders what he meant, but only way India can do so is by releasing the video of surgical strikes.
“So happy that some media exposing Pak’s false propaganda. I congratulate them. Urge Indian govt to likewise expose Pak internationally,”

Incidentally, Pakistan is already exposed and under tremendous international pressure to act against terrorists operating from its territory or face diplomatic isolation, according to a dawn.com report.
