With Prime Minister Narendra Modi just weeks from an election and nationalist feelings running high, there is little incentive for New Delhi to back down on its demands.

The captured Indian Air Force pilot is from Tamil Nadu, where people are very angry because the prime minister has not spoken on the Indian hero's capture by the Pakistani army.

The premier urged the worldwide community to play its due role in defusing the situation as any conflict between the two nuclear armed neighbors could lead to devastating consequences.

Adding to it, he said that Mr. Khan is ready to speak with his Indian counterpart, Mr. Modi, on the telephone, to offer peace. The question is are they ready (for talks).

"Do not take this any further, Pakistan will be forced to retaliate". The attack saw explosives packed inside a van rip through buses in a convoy of 78 vehicles carrying some 2,500 members of the paramilitary CRPF.

India has called for the pilot's immediate and safe return, an official said, speaking on the condition of anonymity citing rules. The two countries have gone through three wars over the region, but the conflict has not been resolved. The following are some of the major events that have taken place after the Pulwama attack. He calmly gives his name, service number and religion and says: "That is all I am supposed to tell you".

Gun battle with militants kills 4 Indian soldiers, civilian in Kashmir
The statement offered Egypt's honest condolences to the families of the victims and wished the injured speedy recovery. Four soldiers and a police officer were killed, along with three militants and one civilian.

The Indian airstrike came after a deadly attack by Jaish-e-Mohammad on the Indian paramilitary police force in Kashmir on 14 February.

Training his guns on the opposition parties, Modi said, "Sadly, a few parties, guided by Modi hatred have started hating India".

"Yesterday we entered Pakistan territory and destroyed three camps of terrorists. Pakistan has acted comprehensively to root out terrorism from its soil under the National Action Plan", he pointed out.

"Prime Minister Narendra Modi had said he would avenge the killings [in the Pulwama terror attack]".

Asked about Shah's comment over his remark at India Today conclave on March 1, Shah said Yedyurappa should not have politicised the issue.
