Amid tensions between New Delhi and Pakistan after Indian fighter jets bombed a camp of terror group Jaish-e-Mohammad in that country, the IAF on Friday tweeted a poem whose lines can be construed as a jibe at Islamabad. Through its twitter handle @IAF_MCC, the Indian Air Force tweeted the Hindi poem 'Hadd Sarhad Ki' penned by Bipin Allhabadi.
The first two lines of the poem read, "Today, someone has crossed borders/Because someone has crossed all limits." The tweet also had a picture of a fighter jet in the background.
हद सरहद की— Indian Air Force (@IAF_MCC) March 8, 2019
आज किसी ने सरहदें पार की,
क्योंकि किसी ने सारी हदें पार की।
उस लड़ाकू में, जिसका अर्थ मृगमरीचिका है,
एक हक़ीक़त, गयी रात हमने बयाँ की।
आज किसी ने सरहदें पार की...

Tensions between India and Pakistan flared up after a suicide bomber of Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) terror group killed 40 Central Reserve Police Force personnel in Kashmir's Pulwama district on February 14.
India launched a counter-terror operation in Balakot on February 26. The next day, Pakistan Air Force retaliated and downed a MiG-21 and captured its pilot Abhinandan Varthaman, who was handed over to India on March 1.
