Shameful. Like political people, desperate to show the face in front of media on the name of peace talk, dewali, holi irrespective of their offensive and killing people and military personnel. Ask those people whose relatives are killed, whose family are destroyed by this unnecessary, unprovoked attack. If you take proper revenge for which they could not dare to attack again and kill innocents, and after that you share the sweets with them, then only it would be proper and praised by citizens.
