*The mindgame of fighting terror*
Earlier this week posters
Pattan in Jammu & Kashmir's Baramulla district, threatening to kill 13

Here's the Indian Army's counter-poster.
In the first panel it says "Hey terrorists, why are you fighting these
innocent people. Fight with the Army, your fight is with the Army." In the

with you. Call us for help."
Now let's see if the message gets through.
