The father of one of the martyred CRPF jawan, Ratan Thakur, in Bihar said that he was ready to give up his other son for the service of the country but Pakistan had to be given a befitting reply for the terror act.
"I have sacrificed a son in Mother India's service, I will send my other son as well to fight. I am ready to give him up for Mother India, but Pakistan must be given a befitting reply," the father said in Bihar's Bhagalpur.
Families of the slain jawans mourned across India for their sons.
Nearly 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) jawans were martyred and many others injured in an IED blast that targeted their convoy on the Jammu-Srinagar highway on Thursday. A blast occured as a vehicle laden with explosives rammed into the CRPF convoy. Soon after the blast, shots were fired at the CRPF jawans and Pakistan- backed terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammad claimed responsibility for the attack.
Unwilling to make concessions, Prime Minister Narendra Modi took a strong stand against the 'despicable' Pulwama terror attack on CRPF convoy. Denouncing the neighbour for their terror-friendly activities, PM Modi gave Pakistan check a reality check by stating that 'it is difficult for them to run their daily expenses and is roaming around with a begging bowl'.
"Our neighbouring country is forgetting that this is new India, terrorist organisations and their lords will get it back. Our neighbouring country is going through a grave financial crisis, their situation is so bad that big countries are distancing from them. It has become difficult for them to run their daily expenses and is roaming around with a begging bowl."
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 unilaterally accorded to Pakistan over 20 years ago. The government has also resolved to isolate Pakistan on the global stage.
