An incident that left the country shell-shocked, saddened and angry, the Pulwama attack is not one that citizens of the country will forget. 40 jawans of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) were martyred in a dastardly terrorist attack in Jammu & Kashmir’s Pulwama on February 14 last year. As the event completed a year, celebrities from the film and sport fraternities also expressed their tributes to the personnel.
Amitabh Bachchan reacted to a fan’s post of him and his children Abhishek and Shweta handing out donations to the families of the martyrs last year. The veteran wrote how one must remember the sacrifices of the martyrs, because of which ‘we can live.’
On this day we remember them that sacrificed their lives so we could live .. https://t.co/7tOOtd9yig— Amitabh Bachchan (@SrBachchan) February 14, 2020
BJP MP Sunny Deol, who has played a soldier in many films, called the martyrs ‘brave jawans’ while expressing his respects to them.
