Since the independence of India in 1947 and evolution of two different states of India and Pakistan, both the countries have been involved in many wars, conflicts and deadlocks. But shamefully, Pakistan has always been the one who initiated it. Needless to say, Kashmir issue is the main cause of all these conflicts.
On 14th February 2019, an army convoy carrying security personnel was attacked by a vehicle-borne suicide bomber in Pulwama district, Jammu and Kashmir. The massive attack resulted in the death of 40 CRPF personnel and the attacker. The attack’s responsibility is taken by Pakistan based Islamist militant group Jaish-e-Mohammed. A member of the group named Adil Ahmad Dar, a local Kashmiri resident was recognized as the attacker.
In 2015, the Pakistan based militants started high-profile suicide attacks against the Indian Forces. In July 2015, 3 terrorists attacked a bus and a police station in Gurdaspur. Then in early 2016, a few gunmen attacked the Pathankot Air Force Station. In Feb and June of the same year, terrorists attacked Pampore and killed many soldiers. Then in September 2016, an assailants attacked Indian Army headquartes in Uri and we lost 19 soldiers. On 31st December 2017, 5 militants again attacked our Commando Training Centre at Lethpora killing 5 security personnel. All these attacks took place within the vicinity of Jammu Srinagar National Highway.
Pakistan has never taken responsibility of any of these attacks. The recent Pulwana attack has raised tension between India and Pakistan. The Prime Minister of Pakistan, in a conference said that India is blaming Pakistan without any evidence and asked India to share any actionable intelligence. He says that if India plans to launch any attack on Pakistan, they will retaliate. He further asked the Indian government what Pakistan would get if they plan an attack like the one in Pulwama.
Though the militant group Jaish-e-Mohammed is banned but international organisations believe that Pakistan intelligence services are letting the group operate under their radar. Isn’t this the enough evidence?
So far, India has retaliated by just economic or diplomatic means but this time, the Honourable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has vowed a strong response and announced that he has given the Indian Army a free hand this time. In response to the September 2016 Uri attack, India carried out surgical strike and the common man was expecting the same this time also.
And to calm their blood down, our Indian Air Force took the counter – terrorism action on 26th February at 3:30 am and dropped 1000 kgs of explosives at Jaish-e-Mohammad’s three training camps using Miraj 2000 jets.
To this air strike, Pakistan again responded and sent three Aircrafts to India, one of their aircraft was shot down by Indian Air Force the moment it tried to enter our country. Hats off to our Forces!
Pakistan must be taught a lesson. They should be shown our power and how much India is respected in the world. France has just ordered its citizens to not to travel to Pakistan because of the disturbances India and Pakistan have right now.
India has always compromised everything in order to have peace among the country but no more compromises. We can’t always put our leg down and Pak knows it now.
