But the teeth of the grasshopper army of India were turned sour by the Pakistani army in such a way that the enemy licked the wounds of this blow for a long time. The Pakistan Army made it clear to the enemy that we still have the same blood in us that used to run in the veins of Tipu Sultan, Hyder Ali, Yusuf Bin Tashfeen and Muhammad Bin Qasim.
