This section of people have no conscience and only one aim to anyhow crush the moral of the people. This savagery is nothing unexpected from certain people.


This terror attack is a direct flaw in the security system and the gap in generating intelligence inputs. The government must investigate the situation in a holistic manner. And identify the loopholes in the security, and where exactly the glitch happened. The glitch which resulted in this fatal conclusive terror attack.

Hence, The sacrifices of our jawans must not go waste, as we remember their contribution and pay our homage to our Indian Army soldiers.
