One of the most horrific terror attacks happened a month ago by Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) in Pulwama in which 40 CRPF personnel lost their life. India has struck back with the Air Strike on February 26th. The pain which India have of losing soldiers isn’t enough for Internation Media as one of them termed the terror attack as Explosion.
New York Times wrote an article on the upcoming election in the country with heading as:
“In India’s Election Season, a Bombing Interrupts Modi’s Slump”
Not just this, with India Air Force claiming about hitting the target with 80% accuracy, the New York Times writes, Probably missed the targets.
“The fact that India’s airstrikes probably missed their targets, and that a fighter jet was shot down by Pakistan, doesn’t seem to matter to most Indians. Their country was hit, and Mr. Modi hit back.”
“After an explosion in Kashmir and weeks of brinkmanship with Pakistan, many Indians are rallying behind Prime Minister Narendra Modi as elections approach.” — The caption reads on Twitter.

Well ! An act of terror being diluted by use of word Explosion. Was the Editor awake when this was published? I believe US itself had been victim of terror and this headline should be touted as highly insensitive and irresponsible. May good sense of vocabulary prevail !

Slow Claps for reporting at its worst by you guys. Calling a brutal terror attack a mere explosion is obnoxious. Yes, India has risen from its slumber and is completely backing its courageous @PMOIndia for sending a strong message to Pakistan that proxy war must end.
