We are the good guys morally as well as superior technologically. So when we say we did something we show how we did it. Secondly we also want to "defrock" PAF (the great PAF unable to defend motherland) and by extension the military in Pakistan. And this represents a great opportunity to do so. Our tactical and strategic goals will be both met. Whats not to like?
Paf stands defrocked already. A sqd of iaf fighters got in, ran amock all over the place and came back without a scratch. That doesn't sound very flattering for the TSPF.
As far as providing imagery etc. I'm sure the right people in the world have seen it including important embassies. Why rub it in even more and force a willing Slave into rebellious thought.
Within India people trust the armedd forces deeply, if they said they did it, it is done. Modi will get all that he can want from aam aadmi during election time.
