Chairman of Mahindra Group Anand Mahindra on Friday paid his tribute to the Pulwama martyrs through a video and urged everyone to send a 'Love Salute' to the "relentless heroes at the border." According to him, "that is where the hearts belong." 

In the video that was put up by the Mahindra Group, a young man is seen walking with a bouquet of flowers in his hand. However, rather than handing the flowers to his valentine in the traditional sense, he instead walks to a tombstone where he lays it as a mark of respect to the 'Amar Jawans' (martyrs). The young boy then salutes the martyr- the 'Love Salute' to the heroes at the border.

PM Modi pays tribute

Prime Minister Narendra Modi also took to Twitter on Friday to pay tribute to the Pulwama martyrs. He said that India will never forget their martyrdom.

The Pulwama Attack 

On February 14, 2019, a convoy of vehicles carrying security personnel on the Jammu Srinagar National Highway was attacked by a vehicle-borne suicide bomber at Lethpora (near Awantipora) in the Pulwama district in Jammu and Kashmir. The attack had resulted in the deaths of 40 CRPF personnel. The Pakistan-based terrorist group Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) had claimed the responsibility for the attack. 

Twelve days after the attack, the India Air Force (IAF) hit back and bombed the largest JeM terror base in Pakistan's Balakot across the LoC with precision airstrikes.
