She can run but she cannot hide from the PN submarines. Remember Kukhri?

Ghazi submarine is also in the memory.

Dont worry PN subs will be hiding from Arihant and Scorpene.

Remember PNS Ghazi?

Ghazi was not sunk by any Indian Navy ship...infact indians never knew it was in their backyard. It met with an accident and sunk. PN succeeded in getting it to the eastern coast of india...this is indeed a feat and indians know that. They are scared of PN. Kukhri was left to die by the fleeing indian navy ships after Hangoor got her.

LOL,typical Pak fitrat again!Trying to squeeze in some fantasy as ever.In 1971 the PN got rogered by probably one of the most asymmetric margins in the history of naval warfare.Just ONE boat of the PN escaped destruction in the East and the PN was decimated in the west. Paks may like to ravel whatever fantasy they like, but that does not change the fact that the Ghazi ended at the bottom of the sea.In 1971 India is clear in victory,while Paki try to scrounge up some yarns to seek a consolation in the face of utter defeat.

India did not attack PAK during the Kargil war and parliament attack because PAK has nukes....that says it all.
