This refers to the edit “After retribution” (February 27). It goes to the credit of the government that it took a measured decision in limiting its action to non-military targets in Pakistan through a bold and well-planned air force action. This was despite the cry of warmongers to attack Pakistan on one side and the chorus of “restraint and talk” by the status-quos on the other.
