“Remembering 5 Years Since the Tragic Pulwama Attack”

As we mark the somber anniversary of the Pulwama attack, which occurred on February 14, 2019, it serves as a poignant reminder of the enduring challenges in the fight against terrorism. Five years have passed since that tragic day, yet the wounds are still raw and the memories remain vivid. On that fateful day, a suicide bomber targeted a CRPF convoy in Pulwama, resulting in the heartbreaking loss of 40 brave personnel. The convoy, carrying over 2,500 jawans, was returning from leave or heading to deployment areas when the attack occurred.

In the aftermath of the Pulwama attack, Prime Minister Narendra Modi vowed that those responsible would face the consequences. Paying tribute to the martyrs on February 14, 2024, PM Modi reiterated his homage on social media, emphasizing that the service and sacrifice of the fallen heroes will always be remembered. The resolve to hold the perpetrators accountable was evident when, twelve days later, the Indian Air Force conducted airstrikes on a Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) camp in Balakot, Pakistan. This retaliatory action sparked nationwide protests and prompted extensive diplomatic efforts to designate JeM chief Masood Azhar as a global terrorist.

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) played a crucial role in uncovering the plot behind the Pulwama attack. In August 2020, it filed a comprehensive chargesheet against 19 individuals, including Azhar, based on electronic evidence and testimonies. As we commemorate the anniversary of the Pulwama attack, we honor the sacrifice of the fallen heroes and reaffirm our unwavering commitment to combat terrorism in all its forms.
