With India finally showing its impatience against the continuous terror attack against the Pakistan sponsored terror groups like Lashkar-e-Toiba, Narendra Modi Govt showing aggressive stance especially after the Uri attack.

Indian forces retaliated last month with surgical strikes against terror camps in PoK, after 19 Indian brave jawans were killed in a dastardly act by cross border terrorists. However, is India really successful in malaigning Pakistan and forcing to act?

Before the surgical strikes India virtually sidelined Pakistan from SAARC after refusing to attend it in Islamabad. It was followed by Nepal, Afghanistan, Bhutan and Bangladesh. To tighten up the pressure India even decided to take hard decisions on the Indus treaty.

A recent report by ‘Dawn’ newspaper based in Pakistan said that the Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has asked his army to tighten up its act against terrorists as the country is maligned worldwide.

Having said that, Pakistan continues to get support from China, which has blocked India’s request in the United States to declare Masood Azhar a global terrorist time and again.

With BRICS summit scheduled to be held in Goa this weekend, it remains to be seen as how far Beijing changes its stand on India’s Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) bid. In case there is a positive development in the matter, It will be a icing on the cake for India, as that will keep Pakistan on further back foot.

Although the Indian media is going gaga over India’s recent surgical strikes and Pakistan’s so called alienation globally, the case is not seem to be that easy, with Pakistan continues to enjoy support from some quarters.
