Nobody can understand the pain someone goes through when a loved one is lost, especially if the person who died was defending the country. The recent attack in Pulwama, in which 49 jawans of the CRPF were killed in a suicide attack by a member of the terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed, has affected the whole of India. Many celebrities and civilians alike are grieving for the men and their families, while sharing their thoughts of the attack online. Actor Anupam Kher too took to social media to share a heartfelt poem that compares a soldier’s life to that of a civilian’s.

Taking to Twitter he posted the video with the caption, “I got this poem/text as a message. It compares the life of a soldier with that of a civilian. It moved me & made me realise how easy it is to take armed forces & their sacrifices for granted. Please share it with the world. Thanks to the person who wrote it.#SaluteToASoldier.” Also Read - Dil Bechara Released Online: Anushka Sharma, Sara Ali Khan, Ankita Lokhande, Anupam Kher And Others Send Best Wishes to Sushant Singh Rajput’s Film And Team
Anupam had on February 14 taken to Twitter to write, “Deeply Saddened and so angry to know about the cowardly attack on @crpfindia convoy in #Pulwama. My heart goes out to the members of the family who have today lost a SON, a BROTHER, a HUSBAND or a FATHER. Prayers for the speedy recovery of the injured.”
The following day he posted a video in which he condemned the cowardly act of the terrorist, and to talk about the sacrifice the armed forces make to keep the country safe and how it is taken for granted.
The attack in Pulwama had taken place on February 14 around 3.15 PM, and it had been carried out by Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) suicide bomber Adil Ahmad Dar. The bus the CRPF jawans were travelling in was rammed by an explosive-laden vehicle in Lethpora of south Kashmir’s Pulwama district on Jammu to Srinagar highway. The jawans were, as per reports, returning to their posts after their leave.
