New Delhi : It has been four years since the devastating attack on a convoy of Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel in Pulwama, Jammu and Kashmir that shook the nation. On February 14, 2019, a suicide bomber drove a car filled with explosives into a convoy of vehicles, killing 40 CRPF personnel and injuring many others. The attack was one of the deadliest attacks on security forces in the region and sent shockwaves throughout India.
The attack was claimed by a Pakistan-based militant group, leading to heightened tensions between India and Pakistan. The incident sparked outrage and grief across the country, with many taking to the streets to voice their anger and demand justice for the fallen soldiers.
In the aftermath of the attack, the Indian government launched a massive crackdown on terror funding and launched airstrikes against terror camps in Pakistan. The attack also led to a significant increase in security measures across the country, with a heightened focus on preventing similar incidents from occurring in the future.
Today, as we mark the 4-year anniversary of the Pulwama attack, we remember the brave soldiers who lost their lives and pay homage to their families and loved ones. The sacrifice of these heroes will never be forgotten and their legacy will continue to inspire future generations.
Let us also reaffirm our commitment to ensuring the safety and security of our nation and to defeating terrorism in all its forms. We must stand united in our resolve to build a safer, stronger and more secure India for all.
