I've spent much time with #CRPF jawans & feel like I can see the faces of the men killed this evening in #Pulwana.
Jawans are not #martyrs; they are working-class men doing a hard and important job – and today victims, like many others, of years of tragic political failure.

Let us isolate Pakistan.
No medical treatment
No Bollywood films and music
No more compassion or sympathy for them
