India commanded attention from its citizens in the last two weeks. In an uninterrupted stretch, Pulwama was followed by counter-attack on JeM in the Kashmir Valley, diplomatic and economic measures, Surgical Strikes 2.0, the Abhinandan saga and renewed shelling from across the border. A real war loomed.

Since early 90s, Pakistan had followed a very successful yet predictable pattern. Bleed Kashmir endlessly through its terrorists. Next, ensure India doesn't resort to a deterrent action. Follow it up with more bloodshed. More and more soldiers are killed. The morale of Indian armed forces dissolve; its alienation with its political class grows. Kashmiris are displayed on world forums as victims of Indian state's brutality. Turn 185 million Indian muslims into a hostile force against majority Hindus and Indian state.

So why didn't India take any deterrent measure? Why Pakistan was always allowed a free goal? Who made India complicit in designs of Pakistan? And why did India follow Pakistan's agenda? These are important questions. Its' awareness could save or break our country.

In the three decades of terrorism in India, 10 worst attacks ever happened. But for one on Parliament in 2001, the rest were all under Congress (UPA) rule (the one in Uri and Pulwama have been successfully avenged). Here is the chronological order, in terms of casualties and damage:
