'Another strike on Pakistan': Amit Shah congratulates team India on big win

Home Minister Amit Shah Monday congratulated Indian cricket team for its victory over Pakistan in a World Cup match saying it was “another strike” on the neighbouring country and the “result is same”.

Shah’s comments came after India inflicted a humiliating 89-run defeat on their arch-rivals in the much-hyped World Cup match held in Manchester on Sunday.

“Another strike on Pakistan by #TeamIndia and the result is same. Congratulations to the entire team for this superb performance. Every Indian is feeling proud and celebrating this impressive win. #INDvPAK (sic),” he tweeted. By mentioning “another strike”, the home minister referred to the surgical strike carried by the Indian Air Force on a camp at Balakot in Pakistan on February 26.
