Indian Act of War - India Naval Officer captured in Pakistan, not spy but involved in Terrorism, its an Act of War

Image India knows well that it cannot defeat militarily nuclear armed Pakistan, so with help of other enemies of Pakistan India has launched Terrorist Military War against Pakistan. Its not a spy but terrorist Commander Indian naval military officer. Are we ready to respond?One is totally astonished at the cursory treatment being given to the episode of Indian Navy Commander  Kulbhushan Yadav  caught in Pakistan, conducting terrorist operations in Pakistan, with base in Chah Bahar Iran. He is not a spy, he is Terrorist. We lost many Shia, Sunnis, Christians in terrorist activities in Balochistan, KPK, Punjab, Sindh, all over Pakistan. Indian footprint was claimed but now we have solid evidence. Giving it cursory treatment is unfair, injustice to the blood of all those, over 60000 killed in terrorist activities.

Islamism, also known as Political Islam (Arabic: إسلام سياسي‎ islām siyāsī), is an Islamic revival movement often characterized by moral conservatism, literalism, and the attempt "to implement Islamic values in all spheres of life." Islamists generally oppose the use of the term, claiming that their political beliefs and goals are simply an expression of Islamic religious belief. Similarly, some experts (Bernard Lewis) favor the term "activist Islam", or "political Islam" (Trevor Stanley), and some (Robin Wright) have equated the term "militant Islam" with Islamism.  The different Islamist movements have been described as "oscillating between tw…
