Sunjwan army camp attacked: No point in chasing elusive peace with Pakistan; better if India pays back in same coin

Feb 10:Another Indian Army camp has been attacked, this time at Sunjuwan. Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) terrorists sneaked into the camp in the early hours of Saturday morning, entered the family quarters of Junior Commissioned Officers (JCOs) and started firing at 5 am. Home Minister Rajnath Singh has spoken to DGP of Jammu and Kashmir regarding the incident. Media reports talk about the area being cordoned off; they say the army will talk about an "appropriate response" at the time and place. Another surgical strike may be ordered; the army will call Pakistan's nuclear bluff; so on and so forth. Reporters are demanding to know how the terrorists managed to go so deep into Indian territory - as if this is happening for the first time, as if Pathankot was right on the border. The media is speculating that Pakistan is "using terrorists because it's scared of India". They are calling the terrorists the 'Afzal Guru Squad of the JeM'.
As of 1 pm, the death toll stood at at two jawans killed and six, including the daughter of a JCO, were injured. The district administration has asked schools within 500 metres of the army camp to remain shut. Firing is supposed to have stopped at 6 am, but there aren't any reports about whether the terrorist(s) are still holed up. The army is hoping to catch them alive, but the operation is by no means over. It may take a few more hours, and the possibility of more casualties can't be ruled out. When the dust settles, the home minister may warn Pakistan again. Pakistan Army chief Qamar Javed Bajwa may perhaps celebrate with Masood Azhar. The follow-up investigations will probably focus on ascertaining how the terrorists crossed the border and traverse the distance to get into the camp, who helped them, etc. Opposition parties will claim India isn't safe anymore, forgetting that despite the heinous beheading at the Line of Control (LoC) in 2013, the then foreign minister had met the Pakistan prime minister when the latter visited Rajasthan on a private visit, while the latter presided over an anti-India resolution in the Pakistan Senate immediately upon his return.
