On 14th February, when everyone was embracing love. A tragic incident from Pulwama (district of J&K) shook the entire world. Pulwama which lies in South-East of Srinagar at a distance of around 33 km witnessed a horrifying terrorist attack on the convoy of Indian Army vehicles.
The convoy included 78 vehicles having 2547 jawans heading towards the location of their deployment. when convoy reached Jammu-Srinagar National Highway, near Awantipura of Pulwama district. Around 3:30 PM, Tata Sumo vehicle which was Laden with around 80 kg of explosives reached near the convoy.

- The army is given complete freedom to tackle any kind of Terrorist activity in this region.
- The financial support of 25lakh and Employment to one member of the soldier’s family is announced by the central government. State Government has also announced exgratia financial support to the families.
- India also withdrew its support to recognize Pakistan as the most favored Nation(MFN) Status.
It is very painful to hear such incident happening around us, which distorts world peace and put a blot on humanity. I believe the responsible authorities will take every method possibly be it tactical or strategical to curb such incidents from happening.
Any nation which provides their space for the growth of such terrorist groups should be recognized and defaced in front of the world.
