Re: MiG-21 Bison shoots down F-16 in Kashmir

Nitpick: When were these F-16s counted? Foreign Policy does not mention a date when the US counted paki F-16s. Was it before 26th Feb., 2019 or after?

Re: Indian ASAT test

Welcome development! But why is the PM announcing it? Why not a mere press release? Also, the target was a live satellite. Our own or foreign?

PS: Did anyone observe NaMo hands were shaking, especially when he said Jai Hind, thrice at the end of the speech?
