What are the nation’s armed forces doing? They do everything to ensure this nation never comes in the harm’s way. There are festivals, special occasions that honour them for the services they do.
The time has come to celebrate the armed forces success in the surgical strikes, where our military went across the border and stepped into Pakistan to deal a death blow to terror camps harbouring terrorists.
