‘Have sacrificed my son in service of the Motherland, will send another. But, Pakistan needs to be avenged,’ Father of CRPF jawan martyred in Pulwama

He is ready to sacrifice his second son as well in the service of the nation.

Displaying exemplary commitment towards the motherland, Ratan Thakur’s father has said that he has sacrificed a son in Mother India’s service. He has also pledged that he will send his other son to fight as well.

He said he is ready to give up his second son for Mother India as well, but “Pakistan must be given a befitting reply,” he said.

Ratan Thakur was one of the 44 CRPF jawan, who lost his life for the service of the nation when a fidyeen terrorist rammed an SUV laden with over 300 kg of explosives into the CRPF bus carrying about 40 personnel. Pakistani Army backed Islamic terrorist outfit Jaish-e-Mohammad has taken responsibility for the attack.

The attack stirred the national sentiments and received widespread-condemnation over the dastardly act. Amid the chaos, the father of one of the martyred soldier Ratan Thakur’s has issued a brave statement. Thakur’s father, who hails from Bihar, said that he has sacrificed his son for the greater good of the Motherland. But, he added, he will not shy away from sending his another son to the duty. In exchange, he has asked for revenge from the terrorist state of Pakistan, who openly harbours the terrorist organizations like Jaish-e-Mohammed.

A statement of Ministry of External Affairs has also incriminated Pakistan for aiding terrorist attack and added that the JeM founder Maulana Masood Azhar had been “given the freedom to target India.” Masood Azhar is the same terrorist who had to be released by India during the IC814 plane hijack of the year 1999. He has since been found involved in various terrorist conspiracies worldwide, including the 2008 Mumbai attack.

The country also witnessed mourning at the houses of the other soldiers.

A family in Punjab’s Gurdaspur lost CRPF soldier Maninder Singh in the attack.

The family of Panjak Tripathi of Uttar Pradesh’s Maharajganj mourns the death of its son.

The family of CRPF personnel Nasheer Ahmed, who hailed from Jammu and Kashmir’s Rajouri city, also mourned the martyrdom.

Early today, PM Modi acknowledged the pain and anger of Indians after the attack. He has assured that that martyrdom of its soldiers will not go in vain. He said that the armed forces of the country have been given a free hand, to exact revenge for the dastardly attack.

“I want to tell the terrorist organisations and their patrons, they have a committed a huge mistake. And for that, they will pay a huge price. I want to assure the country, the forces who are behind the attack, the people who are responsible for it, they will definitely be punished for their crimes.” PM Modi said.

India has also withdrawn the ‘Most Favoured Nation’ tag accorded to Pakistan.
