the whole country stood up
After the martyrdom of the soldiers in the Pulwama attack, PM Narendra Modi had said – I have the same fire in my heart as there is in your heart. All tears will be avenged. Demonstrations were held across the country against this cowardly attack. On one hand, people paid tribute to the martyrs with moist eyes, while on the other hand there was a strong demand to give a befitting reply.
‘Revenge’ was taken after 12 days
After this attack, India started a diplomatic effort to designate Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Masood Azhar as a global terrorist. When the eyes of the people of the country opened in the morning, 12 days after the Pulwama attack, they jumped with joy. In the early hours of 26 February, Indian Air Force fighter jets had returned after bombing Jaish-e-Mohammed’s camp in Balakot, Pakistan. A large number of terrorists, trainers and senior commanders were killed in the air strike. Masood Azhar’s brother-in-law Maulana Yusuf Azhar was running this camp.
