The 'surgical strike' by the Indian Army in the wee hours of Thursday might have come as a complete surprise to the Pakistani forces, but they had another surprise waiting for them as well - online trolls and jibes that a few Malayalees posted on the Facebook wall of the top Pakistani army chief.


As soon as Pakistani General Asim Bajwa, the director-general of the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), posted a video of an interview with a Pakistani channel, innumerable comments and abuses appeared on his Facebook wall - all written in Malayalam. In the interview, the general had rubbished India's 'surgical strikes'

 

The comments ranged from expletives to fun jibes and cuss words and some were even targeted to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and former General Pervez Musharraf.

 

While some people responded by saying that the Pakistan army was no match for the Indian forces, others said the Pakistani army should fight the Pak Taliban first. Yet others posted that Pakistan should first think about the progress and welfare of its citizens rather than engage in wars.

 

 

The comments also reminded the Pakistanis how ace tennis star Maria Sharapova had to face outrage from Indian fans when she asked who Sachin Tendulkar was.
