Gautam Guha, Agami Kalarab: This 14th of February marks the one year anniversary of the Pulwama Terror Attack. The heinous terror attack claimed the lives of more than forty CRPF Jawans and caused grievous injury to the collective conscience of the country. However, in the moment of the heinous act of terrorism by Pakistan sponsored terrorists, there were some people who were using it to further their own political agenda. The conduct of the mainstream media in the aftermath of the Pulwama Attack was indeed deplorable and disgusting, to put it mild terms. Even as the funeral pyres of our martyrs had not turned cold, the media betrayed them. ‘Sacrifices of our security personnel won’t go in vain’ Prime Minister Narendra Modi had said. Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said- “India will never forget their sacrifice. Entire nation stands united against terrorism and we are committed to continue our fight against this menace.”
The dreaded Army of Prophet Mohammed (JeM) Jaish-e-Mohammad, meaning Army of Prophet Mohammed, is a Pakistan based Radical Islamic terror organisation which aims to disintegrate India and supports the establishment of Islamic rule not only in Jammu & Kashmir, but beyond. Jaish-e-Mohammad has been included in the lists of terrorist organizations released by India, USA and UK.
On 26th February, in a swift and precise air strike following the Pulwama attack, Indian Air Force bombed and destroyed Jaish-e-Mohammed’s biggest training camp in Pakistan early Tuesday, killing hundreds of terrorists, trainers and senior commanders. Pakistan was shaken and most expectedly had denied the Indian strike. India’s foreign secretary confirming that strike on biggest training camp of Jaish e Mohammed in Balakot had said that credible intelligence was received that JeM was attempting another suicide terror attack in various parts of the country, and the fidayeen jihadis were being trained for this purpose. “In the face of imminent danger, a preemptive strike became absolutely necessary,” Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale had said. He had also added that India struck the biggest training camp of JeM in Balakot. In this operation, a very large number of JeM terrorists, trainers, commanders and groups of jihadis who were being trained for fidayeen action were eliminated, he has said. The whole world is horrified today for Islamic terrorism. Religions that describe themselves as the so-called “Religion of peace” are constantly killing humanity. Their colors, forms, or methods may be different, but their aim is to establish Islamic rule all over the world and that can be achieved only by killing ‘Kafirs’ (Non Muslims). India has always a believer in philanthropy and has never lagged behind in any action for it which is appreciated all over the world. So today irrespective of race, religion, caste, creed have to be united in order to counter the radical Islamic fundamentalism.
