At a time when the entire nation is shocked at the cowardly terror attack by Pakistan-based terror outfit in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama in which over 40 of paramilitary jawans attained martyrdom, a couple in Vadodara dedicated their marriage procession to the bravehearts.
The couple was seen standing with the placard that read:
"Kaun kehta hai Bharat mai 1427 sher bache hai? 13 lakh sher to border par tenaat hai. (Who says that there are only 1427 lions left in India? 13 lakh lions are standing on the border to serve the nation)".
The wedding guests were also seen waving the tricolour while shouting slogans for the Army.
Earlier, there was a huge show of solidarity across India against the 'ghastly' Pulwama terror attack.
A group of agitators on Saturday blocked the railway tracks at Nalasopara station in Maharashtra's Palghar district to protest against the terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama that killed at least 40 CRPF personnel.
In several parts of the metropolis, shops were shut in protest and schools held prayer meets as a mark of respect to the CRPF personnel.
In Delhi, more than 100 people gathered near India Gate on Friday afternoon protesting against the terror attack. Some were heard shouting slogans calling for justice, while a few others were heard calling for revenge.
An indefinite curfew was imposed in parts of Jammu following protests that broke out on Friday. Jammu District Magistrate Ramesh Kumar imposed curbs in Jammu city under Section 144 of the Criminal Procedure Code, banning the assembly of four or more people.
Earlier on Thursday, a blast occurred as a vehicle laden with explosives rammed into the CRPF convoy. Soon after the blast, shots were fired at the CRPF jawans. Nearly 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) jawans were martyred and many others injured.
In the aftermath of the 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, and the Prime Minister has assured that the forces have been given a free hand to avenge the attack.
