jayema saṃ yudhi spṛdhaḥ

The logo of INS Vikrant proudly procliams RgVeda 1.8.6 - jayema saṃ yudhi spṛdhaḥ

It could be loosely translated as "We will win against enemies in the war". Some translate it as "I conquer all those who fight against me".

Consider these from Indian Defence (I am no expert, this list is a common man's understanding):

1) Jul 2016, Burhan Wani, India commander of Hizbul Mujahideen killed

2) May 2017 - his replacement Sabzar Bhat killed

3) June 2017 - Junaid Mattoo of Lashkar-e-Taiba

4) July 2017 - Bashir Lashkari (had a bounty of Rs 10lkh) of LeT eliminated

5) July 2017 - Sajad Gilkar, again of HuM killed

 #4 and #5 were involved in killing many policemen including Feroz Dar and Md Ayub Pandit
Also in Aug Stone-pelters help cornered terrorist Zakir Musa flee

6) Aug 2017 - Yasin Itoo - operational commander of HuM killed

7) Sep 2017 - Ishfaq Ahmad Padder involved in killing the 22yr old army officer Umar Fayaz - killed

8) Sep 2017 - Abu Ismail, involved in attack against Amarnath Yatris, killed

The last one in particular had an interesting angle - http://www.firstpost.com/india/let-kashmir-chief-abu-ismail-killed-amarnath-attack-mastermind-was-caught-unaware-while-walking-on-road-4044241.html . Perhaps the security forces could have caught them alive, but looks like they were not interested. These are seasoned terrorists - trained to withstand torture at questioning. So why keep them, with a possibility always of having to lose them again as an exchange for a plane hijack or a politician's daughters kidnap. As the Indian army officers would tell you - "It is God’s duty to forgive the enemies, but it’s our duty to convene a meeting between the two" - shubhasya sheeghram for that
