There has been no surgical strike by India,instead there had been cross border fire initiated and conducted by India which is existential phenomenon. As per rules of engagement same was strongly and befittingly responded by Pakistani troops.
The notion of surgical strike linked to alleged terrorists bases is an illusion being deliberately generated by Indian to create false effects.This quest by Indian establishment to create media hype by rebranding cross border fire as surgical strike is fabrication of truth. Pakistan has made it clear that if there is a surgical strike on Pakistani soil, same will be strongly responded.
However, India insists that its army has destroyed terror launchpads in surgical strikes along LoC. In

The relations between India and Pakistan are quite tensed after Uri attacks. India accused Pakistan was behind the attacks which Pakistan denied.
Four heavily armed terrorists had attacked an Indian Army base near Uri in the Indian-administered state of Jammu and Kashmir on 18 September 2016. It was reported as “the deadliest attack on security forces in Kashmir in two decades”. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, though the terrorist group Jaish-e-Mohammed is suspected of being involved in the planning and execution of the attack. At the time of the attack, the Kashmir Valley region was at the center of unrest, during which 85 civilians had been killed and thousands injured in clashes with security forces.
India had warned Pakistan that it may carry out surgical strikes to destroy militant bases supported by Pakistan.
