Jaish-e-Mohammed a terrorist group has claimed responsibility for the attacks.
The social media got erupted with the condolence messages as soon as the news came.
Attack on CRPF personnel in Pulwama is despicable. I strongly condemn this dastardly attack. The sacrifices of our brave security personnel shall not go in vain. The entire nation stands shoulder to shoulder with the families of the brave martyrs. May the injured recover quickly.— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) February 14, 2019
Prime Minister condemned the attacks on CRPF Jawans and also made a strong statement “The sacrifices of our brave security personnel shall not go in vain.“
This what Congress President Rahul Gandhi tweeted:
I’m deeply disturbed by the cowardly attack on a #CRPF convoy in J&K in which many of our brave CRPF men have been martyred and a large number wounded, some critically. My condolences to the families of our martyrs. I pray for the speedy recovery of the injured.— Rahul Gandhi (@RahulGandhi) February 14, 2019
Along with the condolence messages, this time people wants strong action against the terrorists and people are raising their voice on social media.
PM @narendramodi must give the armed forces full freedom to take military action against Pak following #PulwanaAttack. Dont hesitate for too long. Manmohan Singh lost his nerve over launching air strikes on Pak after Mumbai 26/11 in 2008. Please don’t make the same mistake.— Minhaz Merchant (@MinhazMerchant) February 14, 2019
