India’s Director General of Military Operations Lt Gen Ranbir Singh said soldiers conducted surgical strikes on terrorist launch pads across the LoC, causing significant casualties on Thursday. Pakistan shamelessly denied the strikes and said two of its soldiers were killed in “cross-border fire”.

Britain:

Britain asked India and Pakistan to exercise restraint in the wake of surgical strikes by Indian troops across the LoC.

A spokeswoman for Britain’s Foreign Office told, “We are monitoring the situation closely following reports of strikes carried out by the Indian Army over the LoC in Kashmir. We call on both sides to exercise restraint and to open dialogue.”

China:

China said it was in touch with both countries to reduce tensions.

Foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang told a media briefing that China was in “communication with both sides through different channels” and hoped Indian and Pakistan “can enhance communication, properly deal with differences and work jointly to maintain peace and security”.

He also said that China values Pakistan’s position on Kashmir but hopes Islamabad and New Delhi will resolve the issue through dialogue and “maintain regional peace and stability by joint efforts”.

Bangladesh:

After the surgical strikes, Iqbal Chowdhury, advisor to Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, said that India has “all legal and internationally accepted rights” to respond to any attack on her sovereignty and territory.

Chowdhury said there had been a “violation from the other side and Bangladesh always believes that any aggression or attack on the sovereignty…and legal right of a country is not acceptable”. He appealed for “restraint” from all sides to ensure peace in the region.

US:

Though there was no immediate reaction from the US to the surgical strikes, hours before India announced it had carried out the strikes, US National Security Advisor Susan Rice called on Pakistan to “combat and delegitimise” terror groups operating from its soil, including Jaish-e-Muhammad, which Indian blamed for the attack in Uri that killed 18 soldiers.

She condemned the “cross-border attack” on an Indian Army camp in Uri and highlighted the “danger that cross-border terrorism poses to the region” during a phone call to her Indian counterpart Ajit Doval. She said the US expects Pakistan to take “effective action to combat and delegitimise United Nations-designated terrorist individuals and entities, including Lashkar-e-Taiba, Jaish-e-Muhammad, and their affiliates”.

This was seen as a major blow to Pakistan after Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s pointless attack on India in his speech at the UN General Assembly.

Politicians across party lines have echoed the same voice on the surgical strike carried out by Indian Army. Here are some of the reactions…
Venkaiah Naidu (Union Minister): “Country is safe in hands of PM Modi and Army, that’s why people in different parts of world are appreciating the steps taken to counter terror. At least now Pakistan will stop terrorism against India.”

Randeep Surjewala (Congress chief spokesperson): “INC wholeheartedly supports the surgical strike on terror pads in PoK by Indian Army. Salute the valour of our armed forces.”

Sidharth Nath Singh (BJP national secretary): “A salute to armed forces and to the leadership of the Prime Minister for securing our borders and defending from Pakistan-sponsored terrorism. A responsible government acts and talks less. And that has been the practise of this government under Modi’s leadership.”

Raman Singh (Chhattisgarh chief minister): “This decisive action amply demonstrates PM Modi’s iron will and commitment to safeguard India.”

Dr Nirmal Singh (J&K Deputy Chief Minister): “Pak was behaving like a terrorist state;befitting reply was needed.These strikes boosted morale of our Army.”

Raj Babbar (UP Congress president): “If our Army has taken a decision, the whole nation will support them.”

Shahnawaz Hussain (BJP leader): “This is a lesson for all terrorists; we have the right to self-defence.”

Ahmed Patel (political secretary to Congress president): “We congratulate the Indian army for undertaking surgical strikes on terror launch pads. We stand completely behind our Armed Forces.”

Hansraj Ahir (Union minister of state, Home): “We welcome this move; hopefully Pak will learn a lesson and stop its misdeeds forever.”

Sitaram Yechury (CPM): “We have seen our DGMO briefing, saw the Pakistani reaction, besides that we have no official information.”

NAWAZ SHARIF REACTS: Minutes after India announced on Thursday that it carried out surgical strikes across the LoC on Wednesday night, Sharif denounced what he called was an “unprovoked and naked aggression” by Indian forces.

 

Reality of Kashmir and role of Indian Media

Ravijot Singh is a common man like us who has chosen the YouTube platform to spread the awareness in the society. His nationalist mindset has always encouraged thousands of youth to do something better.

When the whole India suddenly got busy in a orchestered debate of intolerance, Ravijot was very upset and wanted to raise his voice. He din’t have a TV channel, he is not rich or he din’t have a newspaper to express his opinion either. So he started uploading videos in YouTube to raise his concern for the society and to oppose the biased media.

Here, Ravijot has again talked about Kashmir and the role of India media. He has expressed about how a section of media is misleading the country. A must watch video.

A Common Man’s Open Response to Shri Narendra Modi on Uri, Kashmir.

On the unfateful morning of 18th September, 2016; militants have attacked an army base in Kashmir, killing at least 17 soldiers, the army says. Four of the attackers were killed.

The initial investigations by the Army indicated the role of Jaish-e-Mohammed in the attack with weapons recovered from the slain terrorists having Pakistan marking.

The 12th brigade headquarters at Uri is located close to the Line of Control (LoC). The rear office is where army battalion’s logistic equipment is kept. Para Commandos of the Army from Baramulla were dropped at the site and the injured air lifted soon after daybreak.

May all the brave souls rest in peace. Our heroes have again sacrificed their valuable lives for us.

Here is Ravijot’s SIngh’s response to the prime minister on this issue.

You want to use Jio service, but you don’t you want to change your existing mobile number. Confused? Relaxe, you can port your existing mobile number to Reliance Jio through MNP (Mobile Number Portability). MNP easily allows you to switch from your existing operator to any other operator of your choice.

To avail the jio preview offer, first install MyJio app from Appstore/Playstore. Click on ‘Get Jio SIM’ and a ‘Free Welcome offer code’ will be generated.

Now to port in to Jio , you need to send the following text message – PORT followed by your 10-digit mobile number to TRAI’s central number for mobile number portability – 1900. In return, you will receive a Unique Porting Code from 1901 with 15 days validity from your current carrier.

Then walk in to any Preferred Jio, Reliance Digital Xpress, Reliance Digital Xpress mini, or prominent multi-brand Jio stores with the ‘port out code’ and your ‘Free Welcome Offer code’ along with your mobile handset and fill up the Customer Application Form (CAF) where you’ll also fill in the porting code. You need to submit the required documents (proof of address, proof of identity and photograph), and in return Reliance will issue a new Reliance Jio SIM card. Once this new SIM is activated, it will use the same phone number you already had, and your old SIM will be deactivated.

Reliance Jio has stormed into the telecom market with very low price internet data and free voice call for lifetime which has created too much curiosity among the common citizens.

Business Model of Jio, all queries answered!

Jio’s business model has been the most aggressive and lucrative at the same time in the history of telecom business in India. People are standing in long que is the proof of excitement that it has created among the citizens in this country in every nook and corner. After reading this answer, you will realize what a clever businessman Mukesh Ambani is.

Why Mukesh Ambani wants to enter networking field so badly?

This story requires us to know why Mukesh Ambani is investing so much in yet another telecom company especially when there is already another company named Reliance Communications. In 2002, when Dhirubhai Ambani died, there were some major ownership issues between his two sons – Anil Ambani & Mukesh Ambani. After some public feud between two brothers Reliance split into two parts in 2005. Anil Ambani got telecom, power, entertainment and financial services business while Mukesh Ambani received the flagship Reliance Industries and IPCL.

Although Anil Ambani is heading the Reliance Communications now, it was Mukesh Ambani who started it and revolutionized the Indian telecom industry which made mobile phones affordable to Indians.

In 2010, as soon as the non-compete agreement (between two brothers) was scrapped/expired, Mukesh Ambani bought 96% stake in Infotel Broadband which had won PAN India 4G spectrum.  Later they rebranded it to Jio, and started building fiber optic network around the country.

The experience gained in starting up Reliance communications helped  Mukesh Ambani to realize that existing network providers are not good enough and that he can easily compete with them and win. He can easily control Internet/communications in India.

Jio’s Business Model.

Look at this tariff plan.

Which plan would you choose? If you are a voice-only kind of person, then you would be okay with the Rs 149 per 28 days plan, as you will get free unlimited voice calls. If you are someone who uses over Rs 150 worth of voice calls every month then it is a totally awesome plan for you. But, my point is that other telecom companies make about Rs 150 per month on average from each user by charging for voice, SMS, data and roaming. Jio will be making the same/more amount of money on average from each user even after providing SMS, roaming and voice calls for free.

Just notice that there is no plan in-between the Rs 149 and Rs 499 plans? This is basically a psychological trick to get you into the Rs 499 plan. Many people will compare it with the smaller plan and see that you are getting unlimited 4G night data will definitely lure them to get that plan.

They do have some smaller plans at Rs 19, 199 and 299. Though, these offer less data per rupee, this may be adequate for many people on short time basis. Who wants not to spent Rs. 19 for unlimited voice calls, 200 MB of data and unlimited 4G data at night? So it guves more flexibility to users. Though for practical purposes, you will be spending more for lesser value through these packs, these are useful for those who want to use some internet & voice calling once in a while.

How can they provide unlimited night data?

Once an entire network infrastructure is ready, it really doesn’t cost anything for the network provider to give you internet data.

The reason why most internet providers limit your data is basically because because of the lack of enough bandwidth to handle so much data. In case of Jio, they have already laid an awesome fiber optic network which is designed to even handle the 5G and 6G. So, they do not have any bandwidth bottleneck.

Other telecom companies designed their network were primarily to handle voice calls and they have limited data bandwidth and also other companies do not have nationwide fiber network, so they end up paying for using the fiber network of other companies. This is the most important reason why other companies don’t usually provide unlimited plans.

Jio currently have the ability to provide truly unlimited data plans. They have already decreased prices on average by 50%. This means people will anyway be happy to use their services. If they provide more GBs in the lower end plans, then lesser people will buy their higher plans. When other companies reduce their prices, it is likely that Jio will also further reduce their prices.

And, the unlimited night usage is only valid for hours in-between 2AM and 5AM.

How can they provide unlimited free voice calls?

Again, Jio has an all IP network, so all voice calls will go through the internet just like skype or whatsapp. There is not really any point in charging for voice anymore. It is an outdated system and there shouldn’t really be any surprise in why Jio totally abandoned it.

But the story doesn’t end here. When Jio customer calls to other 3rd party customer, then Jio bears the cost and pays the 3rd party operator which is thousands of crores on yearly basis. Here is the trick. Most of the big companies don’t want do business from day zero. First make the customer base and then do business. That’s the success mantra of any big company. For doing business, you have to invest in big amounts first.  Jio is expecting other customers to migrate to Jio and then the business will be fruitful and till then Jio will bear the cost. But Reliance as a company can easily bear that, others in Indian market can’t. That’s simple. No company can provide everything for free for 3 months as preview offer. It’s fact.
