Crude & condemnable

At least 40 CRPF jawans were killed in Jammu and Kashmir when a Jaish-e-Mohammed suicide bomber hit a vehicle carrying over 100 kg of explosives into their bus in Pulwama district. The deadliest attack also left many critically wounded.

A suicide bomber drove a vehicle packed with explosives rammed on a bus carrying jawans. Terror act unleashed again after a lull. The Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed terror group has claimed responsibility for the brutal attack. This has left the whole country in a shock.

Condolences to the families of the martyrs. Their families must be in rude shock. Nation salutes martyred soldiers and we all should stand united in the fight against the forces of terror and evil.

No doubt, Pakistan is the breeding ground for terrorists. It is time to act tough. Unless all different voices come together and speak in one voice, such cowardly acts will continue. What is shocking is with just few months to go for elections, such an attack will add to more confusion.

India should act firm. All diplomatic efforts should be taken by the Indian diplomats to isolate Pakistan from the world community. Economic sanctions should be put against the neighbouring nation. It will hit them hard. And Terrorists will be given unforgettable lesson for their heinous act.

Though under NDA government, borders were well-protected, yesterday’s attack has yet again proved that divisive forces within the country should be taken to task. It is time to act tough and save the nation.
