Three years have passed since the Pulwama attack, which drove India and Pakistan to the verge of war
Three years ago, 40 Indian Bravehearts were martyred in one of the bloodiest terror strikes on security personnel, bringing India and Pakistan dangerously close to war. On that dreadful day, following a barbaric strike from Pakistan, every Indian wept.
Concerning the event
On February 14, 2019, a suicide bomber from the Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) terror organisation assaulted a CRPF convoy in the Jammu and Kashmir region of Pulwama. The catastrophe claimed the lives of 40 people.
How India Reacted
The Prime Minister stated that the security personnel have been given the authority to pick the timing, location, and type of their retaliation to the terror incident in Pulwama. After that, India executed a counter-terror airstrike against a JeM training camp. The IAF targeted the Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) terror facilities in Balakot, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan, in the early hours of February 26, 2019, avenging the Pulwama terrorist assault.
Pakistan’s unsuccessful attack on India
The Pakistan Air Force replied the next day by downing a MiG-21 in aerial battle and apprehending its pilot, Wing Commander Abhinanadan Varthaman, who was subsequently freed. The Indian Air Force (IAF) prevented a Pakistan Air Force (PAF) effort to target military sites in Jammu and Kashmir. Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman, commanding a MiG-21 Bison aircraft, shot down a much-advanced F-16 of the Pakistan Air Force.
When Pakistan’s Minister confessed Islamabad’s involvement in the Pulwama attack
In a shocking statement in October 2020, a senior Pakistani minister revealed that Pakistan was accountable for the Pulwama terrorist incident in Jammu and Kashmir in 2019, which murdered 40 CRPF personnel and pushed the two nations to the verge of war. Chaudhry, a close aide to Prime Minister Imran Khan, made the remarks a day after Opposition Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Ayaz Sadiq stated that Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi pleaded in an important meeting for the release of Indian Air Force Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman, who’d been caught by the Pakistani Army on February 27, 2019, after his MiG-21 Bison jet was gunned dead in a dogfight
