Gujarat: A couple in Gujarat’s Vadodara took out a procession ahead of their marriage to pay tribute to the CRPF personnel who lost their lives in the deadly Pulwama terror attack.
The couple was carrying a placard which read, “Kaun kehta hai Bharat mai 1,427 sher bache hai? 13 lakh sher to border par tenaat hai. (Who says that there are only 1,427 lions left in India? 13 lakh lions are standing on the border to serve the nation)”.
Meanwhile, on Friday, a businessman from Surat cancelled his daughter’s wedding feast and donated Rs 11 lakh to the families of martyrs of Pulwama terror attack. Dewashi Manek also gave away Rs 5 lakh to service agencies.
Manek’s daughter Ami got married on February 15 and the wedding feast was due on Saturday. Instead of spending on the feast, Manek chose to give that money to families of the 40 jawans who lost their lives in the attack.
On Thursday, at least 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) jawans were martyred when a Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) terrorist rammed an explosive-laden truck into a convoy. The Pakistan- backed terror outfit claimed responsibility for the attack.
Several countries from across the globe stood in support of India in the wake of a deadly terror attack. India has revoked the Most Favoured Nation (MFN) status that was accorded to Pakistan over 20 years ago. The government has also resolved to isolate Pakistan on the global level.
India on Sunday even raised the issue at the three-day Munich Security Conference during bilateral meetings with several countries, including the US, Germany and Russia. The 55th Munich Security Conference, which brings together global leaders and security experts from across the world, was attended by India’s Deputy National Security Advisor Pankaj Saran.
The conference was attended by more than 600 delegates and it discussed at length a host of security-related issues, including international terrorism.
