Without a shade of doubt, 14th February 2019 will go down as a black day in Indian history. On the day which is known to be marked by love, the country was rattled by a major terrorist attack in Kashmir’s Pulwama district, when terrorist outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed’s suicide bomber attacked with an explosive-laden vehicle into one of the buses of the security forces.
44 valiant CRPF personnel were martyred as a result of the sudden blast and the loss couldn’t have been more painful. The SUV, which was driven by terrorist Adil Ahmad Dar, apparently had 350kgs of explosives in it.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has strongly condemned the unfortunate event and has made a strong statement on the cause. Assuring the country of revenge, the BJP leader mentioned that the sacrifices of the soldiers won’t go in vain.
Strongly condemn the terrorist attack in Pulwama, J&K. Thoughts and prayers with the families of martyrs and wishing an early recovery to those injured. The entire nation stands united in the fight against the forces of terror and evil #PresidentKovind
