LAHORE (Web Desk) – Although Indian is going furious after Uri attack but International experts and analysts believe India lags behind Pakistan regarding the intelligence and capabilities needed to execute targeted strikes or wage a limited war in Pakistani territory.
According to a report put forth byMost experts say successive Indian governments have been unable to build such capabilities. Indian Media is stressing India on why the air force should carry out surgical air strikes against Pakistan neglecting Pakistan’s robust air defence systems.

On the other hand, Indian officials have also cautioned against any adventurism following the military asking the govt to consider ‘surgical strikes’, covert military operations or hot pursuits inside Pakistani territory.
