Homage to the brave hearts of Mother India who lost their lives in blood-boiling Pulwama Attack.
Pulwama Attack Overview
On 14th February 2019, The Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) paid tribute to their slaughtered compatriots in the deadliest attack of Pulwama. Nearly 2500 CRPF personnel in a cavalcade of 78 buses were travelling on Jammu Srinagar National Highway when an explosive-laden truck by a Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) terrorist plunged into the CRPF cavalcade in Pulwama. Around 40 CRPF security personnel in the 14th vehicle of the 55-vehicle long CRPF cavalcade lost their lives.
It was one of the gut-wrenching attacks which shattered several families. This day carried out worst against the Indian forces in decades.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi paid tribute to the martyred soldiers and said that the security forces are permitted to decide to give a behoving reply for the Pulwama suicide attack which assassinated 40 CRPF jawans of our country. The forces accountable for this manslaughter act will have to pay a very heavy price, he said. The Prime Minister also pointed out the neighbouring country by naming it as ‘isolated’ in the world and said that their thought of undermining India with their conspiracies will never work out. The Pak sponsored Jaish-e-Mohammad attack will soon be retaliated.
Pulwama Attack: What went wrong?
At 3:00 PM on 14th February last year, a Jaish-e-Mohammad guerilla smashed a vehicle carrying explosives into the CRPF bus carrying security personnel at Lethpora near Awantipora on Jammu Srinagar highway which took the lives of 40 CRPF Jawans and injured many others. This act of terrorism was planned by the suicide bomber of Pakistan-backed Jaish-e-Mohammad in Pulwama district. Pakistan based militant group Jaish-e-Mohammad stood accountable for the entire mishap. It was unveiled in a video that a 22-year old attacker Adil Ahmad Dar hailing from Kakapora united with the group a year back. The criminal became radicalised after being maltreated by the Indian Police. He was abducted six times by Indian authorities and was every time released without any charges.
It was in March 2018 when his parents had last seen him. One day, he left his house on a bicycle and never came back.
A 12-member team by National Investigation Agency was accelerated with the Jammu and Kashmir Police to investigate the attack. The initial analysis advised that there were 300 kilograms of explosives inclusive of 80 kilograms of RDX, a high explosive and ammonium nitrate in the car. Lt Gen Hooda is not able to clearly state how and from where the explosives were obtained. He doubts if these have been embezzled from the construction site or have been smuggled from across the border. Even after a year, the source of explosives is still unknown, But NIA has achieved success in identifying the suicide bomber as DNA samples from ‘meagre fragments of the car’ used in a suicide attack was paired with Adil Ahmad Dar’s father.
The State funerals of CRPF Security Personnel who were assassinated in Pulwama Suicide Attack took place in their respective native places. The Punjab government had promulgated the employment for the victim’s next kin and ex gratia allowance of Rs. 12 lakh each to the family of killed CRPF Jawan.
India invalidated Pakistan’s most favoured nation status and escalated the custom duty levied on all Pakistani goods imported to India. The FATF (Financial Action Task Force) on Money Laundering has been requested by the government of India to banish Pakistan. There were many demonstrations held all across India following bandhs and candlelight marches. The Pakistan High Commission in London, UK also witnessed the demonstrations by the Indian communities. Pakistani actors and artists were also blacklisted in the Indian film industry by the All Indian Cine Workers Association. The Indian Film and Director’s Association declared a blackball on Pakistani artists in movies and music produced in India. Indian broadcaster DSport had stopped broadcasting Pakistan Super League Cricket matches.
After this Pulwama Attack, agitation between India and Pakistan boiled over. India called for Pakistan’s top deputy and lodged a strong protest. United Nations along with several countries including Pakistan’s close aid China convicted the Pulwama suicide attack and extended their helping hand in the battle against terrorism.
12 days post-Pulwama attack in the early hours of February 26, Indian Air Force jets smashed the JeM camp in Balakot, in Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. A big number of JeM terrorists, trainers, senior commanders and groups of Jihadis being trained there for fidayeen actions were abolished which is reported to be between 200 and 300. The next day on February 27th, an Indian MiG-21 was shot down over Pakistan in a subsequent dogfight amongst Indian and Pakistani jets and its pilot Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman’s parachute landed in PoK where he was seized by the Pakistani army. But two days later, the Pakistan government discharged the IAF pilot under international pressure. He was welcomed as a hero in his country.
