5 Years To The Cowardly Terror Attack On Indian Army Base Camp In Uri, On 18 September 2016

The deadliest of cross-border assaults in two decades across the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir was witnessed on 18th September 2016. A black day for the whole nation, when India lost her 18 brave sons. At a height of 9000 to 12000 ft. when soldiers of two infantry battalions took shelter in the camps during a changeover and while many of them were sleeping, 4 terrorists open fired on them. The alert soldiers started backfiring which killed one of the terrorists on the spot.  An LPG cylinder burst in the cookhouse, which set the camp on fire. Even after the firing was stopped, the arena around was engulfed by fire. Some tents were in flames, yet the casualties were being transferred to the field hospital. Occasional explosions from grenades or bullets due to the enraged heat from the fire, echoed in the ranges.

Lieutenant General Ranbir Singh, the former General Officer in the Indian Army traced the ethnicity of the terrorists and marked their links with Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) which is a Pakistani jihadi group. Former Home Minister and serving Defence Minister Mr. Rajnath Singh tweeted, “Pakistan is a terrorist state and it should be identified and isolated as such”, while the Pakistan government rejected all the allegations.

Since the partition the conflicts between India and Pakistan have grown outrageously. Be it the 26/11 attack, the Kargil War, or Uri attack, things have always taken a terrorising turn, building tensions between the nations. The allegations of fostering terrorism, by India, to continuous rejection of it despite the links and proofs gathered, by Pakistan is clearly visible till now in the verbal battles during the meeting at UNHRC. The recent fall of Kabul and takeover by the Taliban has made the scenario much more complex. Here is a video shared on twitter that clearly testifies the links and complexities in and around Pakistan with Taliban, in this video shared by Geeta Mohan.

The fear of terrorism has also stopped the NZ-Pak upcoming series, where New Zealand has called it off due to security concerns. Read more at: https://rtdjournal.com/new-zealand-vs-pakistan-series-called-off-by-nz-due-to-security-concerns/

Darkness can never make way for light. In the same manner, terrorism can never do good to anyone. Terrorism is the opposite of humanity and should be condemned by every nation and its people, at all times.
