Patna: Reacting angrily and understandably so, thousands of people representing various organizations took to the streets of Patna on Friday to demand revenge against Pakistan following the terrorist attack in Pulwama in Jammu & Kashmir last Thursday that left at least 49 CRPF jawans left and scores injured.

Burning Pakistani flag and posters of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, young men and women, some participating in a candle-light march, condemned the latest act of terrorism on Indian soil by Jaish-e-Mohammed, a Pakistani-backed terror outfit operating in J&K territory, and demanded ‘an-eye-for-an-eye’ action against Pakistan, India’s rogue neighbor that has been a confirmed hot-bed of terrorism in South-east Asia as well as other parts of the world.

“India must give a befitting reply to Pakistan that continues to train, harbor, and promote terrorism in India. This cannot go on any longer and Prime Minister Narendra Modi must react with equal force to avenge the death of our martyrs who sacrificed their lives to keep us safe from Pakistani terrorists,” said a youth leader of Lok Janshakti Party (LJP).

Gathering at Patna’s Kargil Chowk near Gandhi Maidan, dozens of groups burnt the effigy of Pakistan’s Prime Minister and Pakistani flag chanting ‘Khoon ka badla khoon’, and ‘Pakistan Murdabad’. Some took out candle-light march to honor the slain soldiers.

At Bihar Assembly Bhawan, NDA legislators paid homage to the martyrs by holding candles in their hands.

Children at Tender Heart International School also took part in a candle-light vigil to pay their tribute to the fallen soldiers.
