The entire nation is still grieving over the loss of lives of our brave hearts in the Pulwama terror attack, in which at least 40 CPRF Jawans were martyred. The wicked attack took place on February 14 when terrorists targeted a convoy with a car bomb at Awantipora in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district. They were carrying more than 350 kg of explosives.
After this terrible incident, there have been calls for boycotting Pakistan in the Cricket World Cup that commences on May 30 in England and Wales. The Men in Blue are slated to play Pakistan on June 16 in Manchester.
Indian skipper, Virat Kohli ahead of the first T20I against Australia opened up on whether India should play Pakistan in the World Cup or not. “Our sincere condolences to the families of CRPF soldiers who lost their lives in Pulwama Attack. We stand by what the nation wants to do and what the BCCI decides to do. We will go by what the govt & the Board decides, we will respect that,” he said during the media conference on Saturday.
