On September 18, a terror attack on an army camp in Uri resulted in the martyrdom of 18 Indian soldiers. With numerous ceasefire violations in the past few days, everyone was as agitated as Gautam Gambhir was. The left-handed batsmen took to social media to express his anguish.

Last night India carried out a surgical strike along the Line of Control, targeting the terror launch pads. Indian Army’s move was lauded by several sportsmen. Former cricketer Virender Sehwag, a Twitter specialist, went on to say, “The boys have played really well.”
Salute to Indian Army.
The boys have played really well.

All hail Indian Army.
They are truly the best.
