On 29 September, Indian twitterati woke up to see that #ModiPunishesPak had taken over their timelines.

PM Narendra Modi's mentions flooded over with congratulatory messages in the wake of reports of a surgical attack by India, believed to be a retaliatory attack in response to Uri strike.

"I assure the nation that those behind this despicable attack will not go unpunished", PM Modi had said in the wake of the Uri attacks on 18 September.
