New Delhi: Amid tensions between India and Pakistan, the Indian Air Force on Friday trolled the neighbouring country with a poem which said that its Mirage 2000 fighter jets had to cross over into Pakistan as Islamabad had crossed its limits by attacking CRPF personnel in Pulwama.
Taking to Twitter, the IAF on Friday morning shared a Hindi poem titled 'Hadd Sarhad Ki' (limits of the border) by poet Bipin Illahabadi. The poem suggests the reasons that forced the IAF to cross the border and pound the Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) terrorist camp in Pakistan's Balakot.
हद सरहद की
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...

The poem in Hindi, in the beginning, says that a fighter whose name is 'Mrigmarichika' (Mirage) had to cross over the boundaries as someone had crossed all the limits.
The poet has hinted about the cross-border strike by the Air Force on the night of February 26 in which 12 Mirage 2000 fighter jets crossed over the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir and bombed a JeM terrorist training camp in Balakot in Pakistan's Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.
About the late night air strike, the poet also suggests that the enemy would be extra cautious in the nights as they would be living in fear of "fireworks" at that time.
The poem says that we have crossed the boundaries this time and touched the adversary in a unique way to warn him to mend his ways.
The poem also goes on to say that the adversary has been given a dose of truth and he cannot lie now.
The Air Force has come up with the Hindi poetry to troll the Pakistanis at a time when Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan started tweeting in Hindi on the ongoing conflict with India.
