Re: Shri Manohar Parrikar condolence thread

What a tragic loss for us. Very few politicians move me when they pass away, and Manohar ji is one of them. A true son of Bharat Mata, worked tirelessly till his very end. We were very lucky to have a person with his integrity and intellect as our Defense Minister.

Also, this ‘Pakis eat soooo much meat’ is in some ways a TFTA vs SDRE type myth propagated by Pakis.

First and foremost, if you don't believe the IAF chief, I suggest you go sign up for the Deaf and Dumb forum and stop posting here.
Secondly, given the track record of Pakis, who took 11 years to merely acknowledge that their own were killed in Kargil - I know which set of soldiers have integrity.
