Indian Air Force carried out pre-dawn air strikes on terror launch pads in Pakistan and is believed to have destroyed terrorist targets. Ever since the news came out, Bollywood celebrities came out to laud the Indian government. 

The attack came in response to the February 14 suicide attack by Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed terror group in Kashmir's Pulwama district that killed over 40 CRPF soldiers. 

While Akshay Kumar said, “Get inside their homes. Quiet no more”; Ajay Devgn wrote, “Mess with the best, die like the rest. Salute.”

Our Neighbours often complain of being victims of terrorism themselves .. they need to thank us. Jai Hind."
