Revenge is what the country demanded after 40 jawans of the Central Police Reserve Force were martyred in a dastardly attack on February 14. The Government has heard the pleas of the citizens by striking back at Pakistan with the attack at three terror camps of Jaish-e-Mohammed that had claimed responsibility for the attack. The entire nation is proudly expressing their happiness after the Indian Air Force’s operation left the terror camps in tatters. Even several celebrities from the film fraternity responded with pride.
‘Baahubali’ director SS Rajamouli, who has helmed several action sequences involving explosions on celluloid, saluted the Indian Air Force and exulted ‘JAI HIND’ along with the hashtag #IndiaStrikesBack that has been on the top of the trends on Twitter. The director tweeted, "Salute to the #IndianAirForce. JAI HIND. #IndiaStrikesBack."
