Essay Topic: Pulwama Attack
Pulwama Attack 2019: 2 years back, the nation woke up with the saddest day. It was on 14 of February, 2019 when our country was shaken with the inhumanity. The terrorism had shown its ugliest face. 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CPRF) personnels were martyred. It happened in Pulwama. This is why we remember that attack as the Pulwama attack.
The deadliest attack was planned by the terrorists with a straight motive of painting democracy with black ink. While writing this article, there is anger and pain in my words that itself explains what all we as Indians went through. And the pain is not healed yet. It will take time to digest that the world is full of inhuman souls who are trying to shake the grounds of humanity.
It happened when a suicider bomber, Jaish rammed a vehicle carrying over almost 100 kg of explosives into the military bus. Inside the bus, there were 40 innocent Central Reserve Police Force personnels who were travelling to their postings. The bus was in the Pulwama district at that time. This is why the attack is also called Pulwama attack. The attack was so strong and explosive that it left many of our soldiers heavily and seriously wounded.
The news spread like fire in the nation and world and everyone was devastated, scattered and angry at the same time. Without any mistake, 40 lives were at the verge of dying. Those poor souls were sitting in the bus, never in their weirdest of dream they have thought of having this day in their lives.
The Jawans were returning from their homes. They were going to their deployed areas. This was an explosive incident in which 80 kg of explosives were used for the attack.
The Pakistan-based terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed had taken the responsibility of the attack. They thought it was a deed to claim and announce as if the world is going to appreciate them for this sick deed of theirs. Later on, the police had identified the suicide bomber as Adil Ahmed. He was also known as Waqas Commander from Kakopora in Pulwama.
No one can repay the cost of those martyred lives. It has been seen that the nation was stabbed on its back. All the political events were cancelled as the strong wave of shock embraced the nation. The pain was inconsolable and can not be healed. The nation cried and was not in the condition to find and restore faith in humanity. The lives of soldiers were gone for no reason.
