An American Radio Service Journalist Rai Milan writes in his war diary:
“I want to bring it on record that India is claiming victory but on ground there is no evidence to support Indian claims.

During my long journalistic career spanning over two decades, I have never seen a group of such confident individuals as the victorious Pakistani soldiers fighting against Indians”.
Pakistan Army, with backing of the entire nation, stood like a cemented wall against Indian onslaught on all fronts.
