Terrorist Attack in India
Post India’s independence in 1947, India has proved its worth in all the areas. We have emerged as a strong nation. Moreover, we have left a mark on our success far and wide. We are one of the leading developing nations in the world. Many world leaders see India as a competitor in different areas like commerce, education, health, etc.
India has been faring well in all walks of life. However, with success, the number of terror attacks in India are also on the rise. There have been a lot of bomb blasts in the country.
It has been a target of many terrorist attacks as well. The major terrorist attack took place in different regions of India. Many soldiers, policemen, and civilians have lost their lives until today.
It’s not the first time that India was attacked by its neighbouring country. There have been many proofs of attacks at different places like railway stations, temples, parliament to name a few. Many people were killed in these attacks. However, it’s the first of its kind where they attacked an armed force with a great number of explosives.
Recent Terrorist Attack in India
There were three attacks that happened on Indian security. Below is the list of these attacks.
Pulwama Attack – 14th February 2019
Recently a terrorist attack took place in Pulwama. It’s a place in Jammu and Kashmir. There were 49 members of CRPF (Central Reserve Police Force) troops in the bus. all of them martyred. It is the most horrific attack happened in India in the past 10 years.
This attack was led by Jaish-e-Mohammed often abbreviated as JeM. Jen is a jihadist group of Pakistan that is active in Kashmir. Their primary goal is to separate Kashmir from India and merge into Pakistan.
A member of Jem named Adil Ahmad Dar rammed a car into a CRPF bus with a 60 kg RDX. The impact of the explosive was so high that a body flung over 80 meters from the blasted post.
From the attack, we can have been a number of assumptions. One of them is that it was planning for over months. The terrorist organization Jaish-e-Mohammed, run by Masood Azhar has taken the responsibilities for the attack.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has given all the rights to the Indian Army for handling the security situations of India after the Pulwama attack. Nonetheless, the Home Ministry called a cabinet meeting on the Pulwama terror attack with all the Indian government officials. The discussion was on the future relation India and Pakistan.
In a press conference held at the high commissioner. Prime minister Imran Khan of Pakistan have fued the involvement of Pakistan.
Sukma Attack – 13th March 2018
Sukma was an event of repulsive action of Naxals on Indian Security. 10 Naxalites were killed by Indian security forces. A team of 11 CRPF jawans was patrolling in a Kistram area of Sukma. They were in an anti-landmine vehicle.
Naxals blew the vehicle with IED(Improvised Explosive Device). The blast was so heavy that some of the dead bodies were found 25 to 30 feet away from the spot. Elite Cobra Force was called as they are specially trained to handle the Maoist insurgency.
Sunjuwan Attack – 10 February 2018
This attack is coined with the death anniversary of Afzal Guru. He was a convict in 2001 for an attack on the Indian parliament. A group of JeM militant attacked at the early dawn on Sunjuwan camp of the Indian Army in Jammu and Kashmir.
The militant entered from the rear of the camp. They were armed with AK-47 rifles and grenades. They entered the residential quarters of the Military camp base.
The intense gunbattle was held between the military personals and the terrorist. It lasted for 24 hours. All the militants were killed. However, 11 Soldiers and 1 civilian attained martyrdom.
We hope the current Indian government led by PM Modi and the security forces take the necessary steps to stop the terrorist attacks in India.
