It was on February 14, 2019, when entire India was taken by rage after the devastating terrorist attack that took place at Kashmir’s Pulwama district. It took lives of more than 40 CRPF soldiers and a Pakistani-based terror organisation Jaish-e-Mohammad claimed their responsibility behind it. There was a feeling of grief and revenge across the country. However, our forces have now retaliated. Twelve days after the dastardly Pulwama terror attacks, India carried an air strike on terror camps across the Line of Control.
Reportedly, the strike took place at around 3:30 in the morning, 12 Mirage 2000 fighter jets of the Indian Air Force dropped 1,000 kg bombs on the terror camps of Jaish-e-Mohammad, located in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (Balakot). As a result, they have been completely destroyed. The news was confirmed by Pakistan’s Major General Asif Ghafoor. Following this Surgical Strike, a huge lot of Indian politicians have taken to their Twitter accounts and lauded the Indian Air Force’s courage and bravery. Politicians like Rahul Gandhi, Shashi Tharoor, Arvind Kejriwal, Subramanian Swamy, Shobha Karandlaje, Sunanda Vashisht and others expressed their happiness.
Apart from the politicians, many other celebrities and netizens, too, have praised the Indian Army for taking such action and giving the terrorists the required lesson. We now await PM Narendra Modi's statement.
