Pulwama attack- how Indian government retaliated
At least 40 soldiers of the CRPF were killed when a Jaishe-e-Mohammad suicide bomber rammed his explosive-laden vehicle in the bus ferrying jawans on the Jammu-Srinagar highway. The bus was part of a convoy of 78 vehicles carrying over 2,500 paramilitary personnel to Kashmir from Jammu. Most of them were joining duty after coming back from leave. Following the Pulwama terror attack, India launched an all-out diplomatic effort to isolate Pakistan on global platforms.
Some of the significant steps taken by the government are
IAF recently bombarded the training camps of JeM in POK using Mirage 2000 jets and caused massive damage.
Now, after Pulwama terror attacks, UNSC named Masood Azhar as a terrorist and stressed on the need for making the sponsors of terror attacks accountable. And France, US & UK are in plans to move a proposal to list Masood Azhar as a global terrorist. This is a victory for India.
India would stop its share of water from three eastern rivers, namely Ravi, Beas and Sutlej, from flowing to Pakistan. The water would be diverted to serve the people of Jammu and Kashmir and Punjab. Under the Indus Water Treaty of 1960, India has complete rights over three natural rivers, namely Ravi, Beas and Sutlej.
The first big decision that the Indian government took post the Pulwama attack was to withdraw the Most Favoured Nation (MFN) status to Pakistan. The decision means Pakistan would no more get preference in trade agreements.
India has withdrawn MFN status to Pakistan after the Pulwama incident. Upon withdrawal, primary customs duty on all goods exported from Pakistan to India has been raised to 200% with immediate effect. India mainly imports fruits and nuts, gypsum, sulphur, finished leather goods, ores, mineral oils and cement.
The government announced the withdrawal of security of the separatist leader in the valley Amid a growing demand and public pressure.
Prime minister made it clear that the security forces have been given a free hand in choosing the time, place and the structure of the response to be issued to the enemy.
India has suspended the Srinagar-Muzaffarabad bus service in the wake of the Pulwama terror attack. The essential bus service connects Jammu and Kashmir with Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.
India is breaking cultural ties with Pakistan by banning artists and sportspersons into India. Though this punishes innocent artists, it serves the purpose of pressuring Pakistan to take action on terror organisations.
After Pulwama terror attacks, 2500 Kashmiri youth applied for 111 vacancies in Army. This is a victory for India because terrorists wanted to create divisions in India and they didn’t succeed.
CRPF is taking 20 Kashmiri students on a six-day trip of ‘Bharat Darshan’, a nationwide tour. Many children in Kashmir valley did not venture outside their region. This step sends a message to our neighbouring country that we will not tolerate its the lenient attitude towards terror organisations.
