  1. We are at a loss of words following the coordinated series of deadly terror attacks in Sri Lanka that ripped through some churches and hotels, killing and injuring hundreds of people. Well, you know what happens when a nation gets hit with terror attacks? Spread of misinformation, violence, and God knows what else. Well, it's not happening in this case, as the Sri Lankan officials blocked several social media networks, including Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram, Viber, YouTube, and more. It was done over concerns that the attacks would trigger waves of misinformation, violence and hate speech. © Reuters Presidential advisor Harindra Dassanayake told The New York Times that the decision to block access to social media sites was a “unilateral decision”. As of now, it's not entirely clear as to when this ban will be lifted, but it does make a lot of sense since most of the panicking often happens on or after reading dozens of articles spreading fake news on social media platforms. The move to ban social media, however, isn't unprecedented. Sri Lanka itself issued a temporary ban on social media sites after the riots fueled by Facebook misinformation spread. In fact, we've seen something similar in India too, and networks like Facebook and WhatsApp were blocked in the wake of riots. © Reuters But is the ban really helping? Well, there's no way to tell, but resorting to such measures does make sense since a lot of countries do struggle with viral and violent misinformation spread on social media during such events.
  2. After the extremely unfortunate terror attack in Pulwama on Valentine's Day this year, the wounds of the loss of our CRPF jawans had not even healed yet and the heart-breaking news of bombings in the neighbouring land of Sri Lanka has left South Asia along with the rest of the world praying for those who lost their lives in the attack and their families who will never get to reunite with their loved ones. What has been described as the “river of blood”, the attacks in churches across Negombo, Batticaloa and the national capital of Colombo on Easter sunday included a total of eight blasts at the hands of suicide bombers that led to the loss of more than 200 individuals with more than 500 severly injured. Unlike the attack in Jammu & Kashmir's district of Pulwama, which was instantly claimed by the notorious terror group, Jaish-e-Mohammed, yesterday's attacks weren't accepted by any group or organisation. The country, however, has been home to a decade-long civil war and an attack as big as this has to have some negative impact on the already tense environment. Realising the political scenario of his state, former Sri Lankan cricketer Kumar Sangakkara took to social media to request his people to not jump to conclusions and let the process of detecting the speculators of such a horrendous act unveiling with time and complete rationality: “I am shocked and saddened by these despicable acts of barbarism,” said Sangakkara in an Instagram post. “My heart breaks for the victims and all of you are in my thoughts and prayers. I would like to extend my love and condolences to the families of those who have lost their lives and I wish all those injured a speedy and full recovery. I also wish more strength to the hearts and hands of the first responders and the medical personnel who are attending to the injured and to the security personnel who are trying to bring the situation under control." “While we struggle to comprehend the depths of depravity people can descend to, and while we all grieve in unison, we need to find the strength to stand together as Sri Lankans; shoulder to shoulder and heart to heart. Together we can get through. Divided we have but little hope. Even though our hearts are overwhelmed with emotion, it is vital that we force our minds to be rational and intelligent. Do not rush to judgement or conclusions. Let's give ourselves time to grieve. Let's give ourselves the space to try and understand the ground reality. Loved ones have died. Fellow Sri Lankans have died. Guests visiting our country have died." “Do not buy into the spin or conjecture or the conspiracy theories. This is not a game. Eschew the efforts of those who shamefully try to politicise this tragedy. Let the authorities investigate. Let the authorities bring these cowardly terrorists to justice." “For us, our focus should be to love and support those who have been affected. To continue to have compassion and empathy for our neighbours. To keep each other safe. To try and ensure our thoughts, words and deeds enable and empower us to lift each other out of this tragedy. To join together and try our hardest to ensure that no such tragedy can ever occur again.” Love and care for one another know no boundaries and will always prevail wherever a conflict against fear takes place. Keeping that in mind, the sports fraternity of India showed their remorse towards our neighbours, praying for the lives of the victims and their families and extended their wishes towards the nation. Shocked to hear the news coming in from Sri Lanka. My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected by this tragedy. #PrayForSriLanka — Virat Kohli (@imVkohli) April 21, 2019 Saddened to hear about the terror attacks in various parts of Sri Lanka.

  3. Just when Kangana Ranaut criticised Bollywood for not coming forth and speaking on critical political issues, the quintessential Bollywood hunk stepped up and gave his two cents on the state of affairs of the country. While at the trailer launch of his film 'Romeo Akbar Walter', John Abraham, speaking about the current tensions between India and Pakistan post the Pulwama terror attacks said: "There has to be a war against terror, not against a country, religion, religions or between religions. I am very clear in my outlook. I (will) probably get picked on, but I am not going to sit on the fence and say 'this audience will like it, that won't." © Twitter He also added, unlike other actors, that he's never going to shy away from voicing his opinion. "There has to be a war on terror. It has to be over and done with. That doesn't mean you have to fight with another country. That doesn't mean you have to stereotype people." He was asked if actors are obliged to make political comments, to which he said: “Yes, if they are politically aware. Kangana is very politically aware and she has got a voice. I think you must take a stand if you are politically aware. But you shouldn't be stupidly talented. You can't be an idiot, who knows nothing about which country lies where. If you don't know what's happening from Bihar to Syria, then you should shut up and smile and show your mug that you have done so much work on. Don't talk.” © Pinterest While the actor believes other actors should not talk or comment about politics to simply 'trend', he encourages more people to come forward and talk about the grave situation at hand. We believe John has a point to make, because the country idolises the Bollywood fraternity to an extent and if they come forth and share positive opinions, which do not propagate war and violence, then it definitely reflects well for the rest of society. We all have an opinion but voicing something that's beneficial for the nation and its people should definitely be put forth out and loud. © Indiatimes While talking to the press, John also spoke about his new espionage thriller 'Romeo Akbar Walter', directed by Robbie Grewal. The film also features Mouni Roy, Jackie Shroff and Sikander Kher. Since the film does talk about Indo-Pakistan relations, everyone in the film is aware of the current situation and has an opinion on it, said the 46-year-old actor. “We are stereotyping people, that's probably the most dangerous sign. It shouldn't happen. But that's the way the world is functioning today.” He added. The film is scheduled to release on April 5th. © Twitter Watch the trailer here While more famous personalities are coming forward to express their opinion on the situation at hand, we only hope the tensions die down slowly and peace is accepted by both the parties, shortly.
  4. From coming to the rescue of a financially struggling acid attack survivor to starting the initiative 'Bharat Ke Veer' along with the Government of India, Akshay Kumar is a hero in real life too, who has never backed down from going that extra mile for the society, and the bravehearts and their families. © Instagram Now, Akshay Kumar has donated Rs. 15 lakh to Sundari Devi, wife of Jeet Ram Gurjar. Gurjar was one of the CRPF jawans martyred in the Pulwama terror attack on 14th February. CRPF (Central Reserve Police Force) DIG Jagdish Narayan Meena revealed the news of his donation. Jeet Ram Gurjar hailed from a village in Bharatpur and was the sole earning member in his family. His younger brother, Vikram Singh, thanked Kumar for his gesture at a time when they needed it the most, as they are financially very weak. He further mentioned that his parents along with Gurjar's wife and two daughters were also dependent on him. Reportedly, the amount was transferred under 'Bharat Ke Veer'. In this initiative, one can help the families financially, by donating either using the app or the website bharatkeveer.gov.in. Earlier, it was reported that Akshay has vowed to donate Rs. 5 crore to the families of Pulwama martyrs, via 'Bharat Ke Veer'.

  5. The pain that the Pulwama terror attack brought on for the entire nation less than two weeks ago on 14th February, left a gaping wound in our hearts, and more so in the lives of all the families who lost a son, husband or brother. The families of the martyred soldiers have just started to pick up the pieces of the life that they once knew, and people from across the country are helping them to make their lives a little easier and better in any way they can. the number of the martyr has gone up to 49 .. i am contributing for now 50 .. thats 2.5 cr — Amitabh Bachchan (@SrBachchan) February 16, 2019 From sports stars to Bollywood film actors and other prominent Indian personalities, everybody has stepped in to help the martyrs' families, not only in spirit but financially too.

The amount shall be delivered to the Indian Army on 24th April on the occasion of Master Dinanath Mangeshkar's death anniversary. That is not all, even the Dinanath Mangeshkar Pratisthan shall be donating 5 lakh rupees to the Indian Army for the welfare of the soldiers who selflessly serve our nation. Speaking to the Maharashtra Times regarding the same, the singer shared that, "many people in the industry always help soldiers who sacrifice their lives for the nation. Even now, people from the industry are helping out. We have also announced something from our end." © Twitter The entire nation is aware of the love and respect Lata Mangeshkar holds for our armed forces. Once, on the occasion of her birthday, she had urged her fans and well-wishers to refrain from spending money on her gifts, and spend that money on our jawans instead.
  6. The Indian government made its stance on cross-border terrorism very clear yesterday, as the Indian Air Force (IAF) took on the propagators of terror and destruction left to thrive under Pakistan's aid and protection, in the early hours of 26th February 2019. The Indian Air Force carried out an air-borne, non-military strike on three prime terror locations in Pakistan and Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) to eliminate terrorists and training camps in the area. The air-strike was carried out using hi-tech fighter jets Mirage 2000s which successfully destroyed the camps of three major terror-outfits - Jaish-e-Mohammad, Hizbul Mujahideen and Lashkar-e-Taiba - functioning out of three pivotal centres in the area, namely Balakot, Muzaffarabad and Chakothi. #WATCH: Foreign secretary Vijay Gokhale briefs the media in Delhi https://t.co/Th0TjwO99o — ANI (@ANI) February 26, 2019 While very little details about these camps were known earlier, recent reports suggest that JeM's Syed Ahmad Shaheed's centre in Balakot, which also served as a prime location for terror outfits as a 'jihad launchpad', was no less than a 5-star resort situated atop lush green hills in the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan. Here are all the inside details on the architecture and hi-tech facilities in the Balakot terror camp, as reported by an exclusive TOI report: · Started in 2003-2004, the Balakot facility spread over six acres of forest area and boasted of large halls and dormitories, which could house more than 600 people at a time. · The training ground spread across a whopping two-acre clearing where the terrorists would reportedly light bonfires and train.

  7. Before the funeral pyres and graves of the CRPF soldiers martyred in the Pulwama attack on 14th February 2019 could go cold, India showed Pakistan how terrorism must truly be dealt with when push comes to shove. Earlier this morning, India carried out an air-borne strike on three locations in Pakistan and Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) to eliminate terrorists and Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) training camps in the area. The air-strike was carried out by the Indian Air Force (IAF) using hi-tech fighter jets, which successfully destroyed the camps of the terror-outfits functioning out of three pivotal centres in the area. Here are all the details you need to know about the who, when, where and how of the air-strike carried out by the Indian Air Force during the wee hours of 26th February 2019, that made India's stand on terrorism very clear: The Timeline The Indian Air Force dropped 1000 kg bombs on three sensitive terror camps in Balakot, Muzaffarabad and Chakothi in PoK and Pakistan.

Joint training camps of Jaish-e-Mohammad, Hizbul Mujahideen and Lashkar-e-Taiba were located in the area. These are launch pads that were jointly operated by the three terror outfits. 3:48 am - 3:55 am - The IAF struck the terror camps in Muzaffarabad next. 3:55 am - 4:04 am - Chakothi, which is over 50 kilometres from Muzaffarabad, was the last and final target of the strike. Source The Official Statement By The Indian Government On The Airstrike An official statement from the government on the airstrike on the terror bases in Balakot, Muzaffarabad and Chakothi by the Indian Air Force, was made by the Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale in a detailed statement, earlier this morning. Here is the full statement: · On 14 February 2019, a suicide terror attack was conducted by a Pak based terrorist organization Jaish-e-Mohammad, leading to the martyrdom of 40 brave jawans of the CRPF. JeM has been active in Pakistan for the last two decades and is led by Masood Azhar with its headquarters in Bahawalpur. · This organization, which is proscribed by the UN, has been responsible for a series of terrorist attacks including on the Indian Parliament in December 2001 and the Pathankot airbase in January 2016. · Information regarding the location of training camps in Pakistan and PoJK has been provided to Pakistan from time to time. Pakistan, however, denies their existence. The existence of such massive training facilities capable of training hundreds of jihadis could not have functioned without the knowledge of Pakistan authorities. · India has been repeatedly urging Pakistan to take action against the JeM to prevent jihadis from being trained and armed inside Pakistan. Pakistan has taken no concrete actions to dismantle the infrastructure of terrorism on its soil. #WATCH: Foreign secretary Vijay Gokhale briefs the media in Delhi https://t.co/Th0TjwO99o — ANI (@ANI) February 26, 2019 · Credible intelligence was received that JeM was attempting another suicide terror attack in various parts of the country, and the fidayeen jihadis were being trained for this purpose. In the face of imminent danger, a preemptive strike became absolutely necessary. · In an intelligence-led operation in the early hours of today, India struck the biggest training camp of JeM in Balakot. In this operation, a very large number of JeM terrorists, trainers, senior commanders and groups of jihadis, who were being trained for fidayeen action, were eliminated. This facility at Balakot was headed by Maulana Yousuf Azhar alias Ustad Ghouri, the brother-in-law of Masood Azhar, Chief of JeM. · The Government of India is firmly and resolutely committed to taking all necessary measures to fight the menace of terrorism. Hence this non-military preemptive action was specifically targeted at the JeM camp. The selection of the target was also conditioned by our desire to avoid civilian casualties. The facility is located in a thick forest on a hilltop far away from any civilian presence. As the strike has taken place only a short while ago, we are awaiting further details. JeM's Yusuf Azhar alias Mohammad Salim alias Ustaad Gohri who was targeted today by IAF #airstrike in Balakot across LOC was on the Interpol list and among the most wanted in India. pic.twitter.com/1eTj8FhFMJ — ANI (@ANI) February 26, 2019 · The Government of Pakistan had made a solemn commitment in January 2004 not to allow its soil or territory under its control to be used for terrorism against India. We expect that Pakistan lives up to its public commitment and takes follow up actions to dismantle all JeM and other camps and hold the terrorists accountable for the actions. 7 Vital Tactical Moves Used By IAF During The Strike 1.

  8. Twelve days after the deadly Pulwama terror attack shook the nation and killed over 40 CRPF jawans, the IAF (Indian Air Force) today breached the LoC (Line of Control) and struck JeM (Jaish-e-Mohammed) terror camps in Balakot. This is the first time in almost two decades that IAF's jets crossed the border and fired in aggression. The fighter jets ambushed the terror camps with 1,000 kg laser-guided bombs. The strike was carried out around 3:30 AM by 12 Mirage 2000 fighter jets. IAF operates multiple fighter jets like the Sukhoi 30MKI, MiG 29UPG, SEPECAT Jaguar, and HAL Tejas. But, the Mirage 2000 has been a trusted jet since the 1999 Kargil Conflict, the last time it fired weapons in aggression. © MensXP / Shivam Vahia The Mirage 2000 is built by French company Dassault Aviation - the makers of the controversial Rafale jets. The IAF calls the jet "Vajra", meaning thunderbolt for its precision aiming and intercepting abilities. The Jets were first commissioned in 1985 and it was in response to Pakistan Air Force's acquisition of the American F-16 fighter. © WikiMedia Initially, 36 single-seater aircraft and four twin-seater were ordered, but after its remarkably successful performance in Kargil, the government ordered 10 more. The jet is technically classified as a multi-role aircraft, meaning it can carry out air-to-ground bombings, air-to-air superiority combat, interception, as well as reconnaissance. © Wikimedia / SRA Greg L. Davis Even though it seems like an old aircraft on paper, India has upgraded the jet's avionics to the latest standard (Mirage 2000I) and it is classified as a fourth generation fighter. Powering the fighter is a single SNECMA M53 turbofan that generates up to 95kN of thrust in afterburner stage. The engine has a single shaft modular design which helps in reducing the weight and in turn increases manoeuvrability. It can fly at a maximum speed of Mach 2.2 or 2,330kmph. © Safran It has a built-in DEFA 554 autocannon and can fire up to 1,800 rounds per minute. Five hardpoints (location where missiles and bombs are attached) are located on the fuselage and two on each wing. For today's strike, GBU-12 Laser Guided bombs were used and R.550 missile was loaded to counter any possible threat from Pakistan's air force. © WikiMedia / SSgt. Glenn B. Lindsey This is the same jet that was also landed on Yamuna Expressway near Mathura in 2015. For today's attack, reports suggest that Sukhoi 30MKI were also kept on standby to assist the Mirage 2000 in case of retaliation from Pakistan Air Force. At the same time, the attack was also backed by an EMB-145 AEW&CS "Netra" aircraft from Agra to look out for aerial targets and provide better radar coverage.
  9. In the aftermath of one of the worst terror attacks on Indian soil, where over 40 CRPF jawans were martyred in Pulwama, the Indian Air Force (IAF) launched pre-dawn airstrikes on Pakistan-based terror camps of Jaish-e-Mohammad, which was responsible for the attack on the CRPF convoy. India's Foreign Secretary, Vijay Gokhale confirmed the airstrikes by the IAF in a press briefing, "in the early hours of Tuesday, India struck the biggest training camp of JeM in Balakot." Twitter (For Representation) He further said, "In this operation, a very large number of JeM terrorists, trainers, senior commanders and groups of jihadis who were being trained for fidayeen action were eliminated." The airstrike took place around 3:30 AM and 12 Mirage 2,000 fighter jets were used for the attack, and 1,000 kg laser-guided bombs were dropped on the terror camps, completely destroying them, according to reports. Twitter (For Representation) Hours after the attack, people began flooding the social media with their reactions on the airstrikes that reportedly neutralised over 300 terrorists. The official account of the Indian Army tweeted a poem.

  10. Post the deadly Pulwama terror attack, the entire country is left in a state of horror and shock. Over 40 CRPF personnel lost their lives and we're still trying to put the pieces together, all across the country, not sure if they'll fit anymore. But an international humanitarian organisation by the name of 'Khalsa Aid' and some local Gurudwaras and individual Sikhs helped the Kashmiri population who were trying to escape vigilante mob attacks all across the country and we know for sure there is still some faith left in humanity. © Twitter The organisation gave protection, food and shelter to many stranded Kashmiris and helped them reach back safe to their homes in Kashmir. The violence erupted all over North India where many Kahsmiri students were being attacked in retaliation to the attack on the 14th of February and with the help of Khalsa Aid, they've all made it back home safe. © Twitter As a mark of gratitude and in order to thank the Sikh communities, the Kashmiris have now expressed their love for the Sikhs for helping them out in times of need and have offered free services to the Sikhs, namely medical treatments and education and free snow bike rides in Gulmarg. © Twitter So much so, a cartoon caricatured by a Kashmiri cartoonist by the name of Suhail Naqshbandi has gone viral on social media. The sketch depicts a Sikh offering a helping hand to a drowning Kashmiri, narrating the benevolent services and gratitude towards the brotherhood. Sardar means a leader and they lead by example. Hats off to them for being everywhere to help the humanity. @Khalsa_Aid #kashmirisindistress #kashmir pic.twitter.com/H6kUfIVlzk — Suhail Naqshbandi (@hailsuhail) 20 February 2019 The cartoonist tweeted: “Sardar means a leader and they lead by example.

The cartoon was also shared by former Jammu & Kashmir chief ministers Mehbooba Mufti and Omar Abdullah. I salute our Sikh brethren who came to the aid of young Kashmiris all over the country.

  11. The rage is real. Memories of all those CRPF jawans being mercilessly martyred at the hands of the Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorists continue to haunt us. Whether it's the loud chants of “Vande Mataram” during the candle march at India Gate in unison or the emotional speeches given by the fellow soldiers, the flare against those who want to harm our motherland is burning bright in every Indian. While the common citizens are trying their best to show their protest, there is one man in particular who is waging a war of his own against terror and those perpetrators who want to see the world burn. That man being Gautam Gambhir. Although he has parted ways with the Indian cricket team, the former Indian opener continues to serve his country even now. After the infamous terror attack at the hands of a Jaish influenced suicide bomber caused more than 40 CRPF soldiers their lives, Gambhir was one of the first few to condemn it. He was also one of the first to suggest that the only way to sort the issue out for good is to settle it on the “battle ground”. “Yes, let's talk with the separatists. Yes, let's talk with Pakistan. But this time conversation can't be on the table, it has to be in a battle ground. Enough is enough. 18 CRPF personnel killed in IED blast on Srinagar-Jammu highway,” the cricketer had tweeted on the day of the attack. Having admitted time and again that his first love was the Indian Army and not cricket, Gambhir also runs a foundation that works in favour of the children of the martyred soldiers of the nation. “We are sponsoring 50 children right now, we are going to increase the number to 100,” he said at the launch of Radhika Kawlra Singh's book 'It's Easy To Be You'. “It was pure destiny and had I not played Ranji Trophy in 12th (standard), I would have definitely gone into the NDA because that was my first love and it still remains my first love. In fact, my only regret in life is that I couldn't join the army,” Gambhir had said. Indian Army नॠयह à¤à¤à¤ भॠशà¥à¤°à¥ नहà¥à¤ à¤à¤°à¥ but they will bloody well finish it and I am with them emotion-to-emotion, shoulder-to-shoulder. — Gautam Gambhir (@GautamGambhir) February 17, 2019 The patriot in Gautam Gambhir has enabled him to serve his country to the best of his abilities. So what if he is not a soldier, his was against terror is equally important and must be supported under any circumstances.
  12. 14/2/2019 will be marked as one of the darkest days in the history of our nation, as a fidayeen attack claimed the lives of over 40 CRPF jawans, who were killed in a suicide bomb attack in Pulwama, Jammu and Kashmir. A CRPF convoy of buses, trucks and SUVs containing over 2000 personnel, mostly who were returning to the base after their leaves, was rammed by a JeM terrorist driving a vehicle laden with almost 350 kgs of RDX, which caused the deadly explosion. With the entire county being thrown into a state of shock, anger and anguish, many of our nation's personalities have taken to social media to condemn the cowardly attack and have expressed their solidarity with the families of the martyrs. The nation's sports fraternity also joined hands to condemn the attack and express their condolences. “I'm shocked after hearing about the attack in Pulwama, heartfelt condolences to the martyred soldiers & prayers for the speedy recovery of the injured jawans,” said Indian skipper Virat Kohli in a tweet. I'm shocked after hearing about the attack in Pulwama, heartfelt condolences to the martyred soldiers & prayers for the speedy recovery of the injured jawaans. — Virat Kohli (@imVkohli) February 15, 2019 In another tweet, former Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir, who was visibly enraged post the attack, said, “this time conversation has to be in the battleground.” Yes, let's talk with the separatists. Yes, let's talk with Pakistan. But this time conversation can't be on the table, it has to be in a battle ground.

  13. Every time the Indian borders or the safety of its citizens are threatened, it is the men in green who stand in the way of trouble. Holding the fort with all their might and even putting their lives on the line to get it done. Yet there's no denying that their bravado and selflessness also makes them easy targets and puts them in harm's way, every time our foes wish to make a point (however unnecessary and futile). Jammu & Kashmir: Mortal remains of CRPF personnel who lost their lives in #PulwamaAttack yesterday, at CRPF camp in Budgam. pic.twitter.com/h4XoD5tC7o — ANI (@ANI) February 15, 2019 Yesterday's terror attack in Jammu & Kashmir's Pulwama, which is being called the biggest attack in the area since the Uri attack in 2016, is a proof of such a situation. Yesterday JeM terrorists targeted a CRPF procession in Jammu to Srinagar which comprised of over 70 vehicles and 2,547 personnel. The attack took away the life of 44 jawans and has left the country seething with anger and grief. © Twitter Targeting unsuspecting soldiers and attacking them when their defences are down is the biggest proof of cowardice that there is. Yet, even in death the jawans and their families continue to prove that they are the country's biggest pride. Even through their ultimate misery and loss, the families of the martyred jawans continue to take pride in the sacrifice their sons, husbands and brothers made for their motherland. However, it the need of the hour is to stand with the families of the martyred and share in the pain in grief. And since acknowledgement is the simplest way to start, let's begin with that.

  14. Yesterday, on February 14, the nation was painted red, not in the colour of love but with blood as nearly 40 CRPF (Central Reserve Police Force) personnel were martyred in one of the worst terrorist attacks ever in the state of Jammu & Kashmir. AP When half the nation was celebrating the day of love with their partners, there were many families who were mourning the death of their loved ones. Cheers of laughter and joy soon turned into tears and cries of the families of jawans, who were mercilessly attacked when they were travelling in a CRPF bus that was blown up using explosives. Reportedly, a suicide bomber named Adil Ahmad Dar alias 'Waqas Commando' crashed his SUV, laden with more than 350kgs of explosives, into the bus that was part of a 70-vehicle convoy on its way to Pulwama. Pakistan-based terrorist organisation Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) claimed responsibility for this terror attack. AP The attack has left the families devastated and the nation in shock. From prominent personalities to commoners, everyone is filled with rage and are now voicing their anger on social media. From Akshay Kumar, Priyanka Chopra, Abhishek Bachchan, 'Uri' actor Vicky Kaushal to Taapsee Pannu, Alia Bhatt and more, celebrities are standing strong with the families of martyred jawans as this cowardly and despicable act can't be forgotten easily. Numb beyond belief at the dastardly terror attack on #CRPF soldiers in #Pulwama. May God give peace to their souls, and strength to their grieving families. Wishing the injured a speedy recovery.

  15. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those who have been adversely affected by the 14th February 2019 terror attack on the CRPF bus in the Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir. The loss of over 40 of India's finest and bravest soldiers in what is considered to be the biggest terror attack since Uri has left the Indian public in sorrow, sympathetic and irate. Amidst such times of chaos and upheavals, one must show as much support to the victims as they can. The idea of promoting yourself or your team should probably be the last thought in your head right now and the people seemed to feel the same way when they set the Indian cricket captain, Virat Kohli, straight. While the world was mourning on the huge tragedy that took place on Valentine's Day, Virat Kohli decided to put out a couple of tweets asking his fans (essentially the entire nation), to vote for the Indian sports honours for the best cricket club and the best fan club of the year. While celebrities from all over the country including Priyanka Chopra came out to empathise with the families of the martyred jawans and the CRPF soldiers that were injured in the blast, Kohli's tweet felt ignorant, unsympathetic and really just out of place. Absolutely shocked by the attack in #Pulwama...Hate is NEVER the answer!!! Strength to the families of the martyred jawans and the CRPF soldiers injured in the attack. — PRIYANKA (@priyankachopra) February 14, 2019 My deepest thoughts and prayers are with the victims of the Pulwama attacks and their families. — Karan Johar (@karanjohar) February 14, 2019 There's no doubt that if the situation was even remotely different from what it is right now, Kohli's Twitter fans, all of 28.2 million, would have hopped onto the bandwagon to vote for their favourite cricket club and fan club in a instant as their leader had asked of them. But in the wake of something as devastating as the Jaish-e-Mohammed attack on J&K, the followers had to hold the torch for the Indian skipper to see things clearly, as they let Kohli know all about their displeasure with his tweets: This is what the cricketer had uploaded but later removed after getting a lot of flak: And here's how his agitated fans responded: Virat aapke team sea jo bhi aapka Social Media Account handle karta hai Wo Bahut Bada Pagal hai — Raja â¤ï¸ (@RaghurajPrSingh) February 14, 2019 Promotional tweet regarding sports honor awards voting.

He has done some exceptional work to bring the Men in Blue to the stage where they are right now. However, these tweets are just the best examples of 'wrong time, wrong place'.
  16. The final trailer of 'Hotel Mumbai' showcases an emotionally electrifying account of what went down during the horrific 26/11 Mumbai terrorist attacks on 26th November 2008. The movie is based on a documentary called 'Surviving Mumbai' and highlights the horrors and the nightmares from one of the deadliest terror attacks in the history of our nation, which still seem like fresh wounds in our hearts This movie stars Anupam Kher, Dev Patel and Jason Issacs in the lead. © Netflix © Netflix The movie garnered a lot of accolades when it was premiered at the Toronto Film Festival back in September and is releasing this March on Netflix. The movie is an account of what happened during the attack when people tried to seek refuge and many lost their lives when the gun firing began. © Netflix It is an emotionally gripping ride and you need to make sure you watch it to exactly understand what the victims and the survivors endured that day.
  17. It may finally be time to call The Undertaker by his real name, Mark William Calaway. One of the strongest characters that WWE has ever produced, The Undertaker has been the most celebrated persona not only in the WWE but in all of wrestling. Throughout the years, the myth of the 'Deadman' taking away his opponents' souls in a golden urn has given us eerie yet enjoyable moments. Even during the relatively uncanny run of the Undertaker's 'American Badass' avatar, Calaway somehow managed to be equally captivating with his uber-cool chopper and his microphone skills. But in the past couple of years, age has been getting the better of the Deadman. The 53-year-old wrestler has faced unfortunate concussions, broken bones and has genuinely blacked-out inside the ring against wrestlers like Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns. Arguably the most valuable wrestling record of all-time, The Undertaker's streak of being unbeaten at Wrestlemania was broken by Brock Lesnar as he pinned him at the 30th anniversary of WWE. Eventually, he was also pinned by Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania as the 'Big Dog' needed a big push going ahead into the next year. All of this was done in order to rid Calaway of all the expectations his generations of fans had from him. Now, without the burden of the streak or the facade of being 'the Devil's favourite son', the Undertaker is free to call it quits and actually live a healthy retired life. Calaway, who took his character very seriously, has kept away from media for a very long time. Therefore, his interview on Onnit's 'True Wrestling' documentary is not only rare but highly valuable too. In the interview, Calaway talks about how he has given every bit of his life to the wonderful art that wrestling is. Talking about the idea of him bidding adieu to the wrestling world, the former World Heavyweight Champion says that he has put everything into perspective when thinking about the end of his career. “You know, at the tail-end now, I really have to put everything into perspective, and what damage I'm doing at this point, to myself, and my life after wrestling,” said The Undertaker. With the WWE Royal Rumble around the corner and Wrestlemania 35 to take place on 8th April 2019, Calaway is rumoured to headline the WWE Hall of Fame which happens a day before the main Wrestlemania event. If the Deadman does decide to hang his trenchcoat for good, there would be no better way to say 'goodbye'.
