“Black Day For India“
14th February popularly known for the couples who celebrated this day as valentine day (a holiday for couples). In 2019, When couples were celebrating Valentine’s Day , and our soldiers were guarding our borders for our safety. An explosion took place in Jammu Kashmir’s Pulwama district on 14th feb. A CRPF convoy was attacked by a suicide bomber on the Srinagar-Jammu highway in J&K’s Pulwama district. It was said to be the worst-ever terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir since militancy erupted in 1989. The Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) had claimed responsibility for the attack and had also released a video clip of the suicide bomber. 40 CRPF personnel martyred and many critically wounded and left us with a memory that can not be forgotten. Initial investigations suggested the car was carrying more than 300 kilograms (660 lb) of explosives, including 80 kilograms (180 lb) of RDX, a high explosive, and ammonium nitrate. Retired Lt. Gen Hooda said that the explosives might have been stolen from a construction site. He initially said that it was not possible that they were smuggled from across the border, but later said that he could not rule it out. Unfortunately, after many rounds of investigations by our security agencies, we have no clue that how can such a huge consignment of explosives entered into our territory, or if it was from our country itself then who was responsible for that?
This is the reason 14th feb is a black day for India.
This Pulwama attack led to the operations of surgical strikes by India to wipe away terrorists. Indian Air Force (IAF) dropped playloads of explosives into Balkot area of Pakistan destroying terrorist camp containing 300 terrorists.
we can see many unauthorised messages on social media that Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev, and Rajguru were hanged on this date in the year 1931 and it must be noted here that they were not hanged on 14th feb, these claims are baseless as Bhagat Singh was hanged on 23 March, 1931 as per my knowledge. So please refrain from these kinds of fake messages.
