Patna: People in Patna on Tuesday celebrated the attack on a terrorist camp in Balakot in Pakistan when the Indian Air Force (AIF) jawans on early Tuesday morning, crossed the Line of Control (LoC) and dropped 1000 kilogram of bomb in what is being dubbed as ‘non-military, pre-emptive air strike’ killing more than 300 terrorists with allegiance to Jaish-e-Mohammed.
As recalled, Jaish-e-Mohammed had earlier assumed responsibility for killing 40 Indian soldiers in Pulwama in Kashmir 12 days ago.
People of all ages on Tuesday began gathering at Kargil Chowk in Patna and other public places where they, waving Indian flags, hailed the Indian government’s action against Pakistani terrorists saying revenge was not only required, it had to be massive enough to teach Pakistan a lesson so it never underestimates India’s ability to defend itself from a rogue nation like Pakistan.
Thanking Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the retaliatory action, youths in Patna celebrated the destruction of terrorist camp by putting ‘gulal’ on everyone’s face; cracking firecrackers, and by burning the flag of Pakistan and effigy of Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan.
Chanting ‘Pakistan Murdabad’, revelers said by taking out the Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorist camp in Pakistan, India had avenged the deaths of 40 CRPF jawans who were killed in a bomb blast in Pulwama in Kashmir on February 14.
Their sentiments were echoed by the two family members of CRPF jawans from Bihar who were martyred in the Pulwama terrorist attack.
Feeling somewhat relieved by the killing of those who killed their loved ones, the family members of Sanjay Kumar Sinha in Masaurhi and Ratan Kumar Thakur in Kahalgaon said it was a befitting reply to the terrorists and the entire nation was with the Prime Minister and the Indian armed forces who were protecting the people of India from Pakistani terrorists on a daily basis.
“The message that you kill one of ours, we will kill hundreds of yours had to be conveyed to Pakistan,” said a family member of Sanjay Kumar Sinha.
Meanwhile, security has been beefed up in and around Patna Airport and all major railway and bus stations in Bihar to prevent any act of terror in the state.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
