Mumbai terror: Saluting the brave men

The whole country’s eyes are on Mumbai. It is astonishing that it took such a major terror strike for us to realise the importance of the country’s security forces. In the past 24 hours, the country has lost 14 policemen including 3 of the country’s best. ATS Chief Hemant Karkare, DIG Ashok Kamte and encounter specialist Vijay Salaskar laid down their lives fighting for the safety of the citizen’s of the country. Men from forces including the Army, the Navy, the National Security Guard (NSG) and the Mumbai Police are still bravely putting their lives opn the lines trying to bring the situation under control and ensure the safety of the people. 

It is high time that the politicians, bureaucrats and even the people of India should look up at the men who protect the nation from anti-social elements, criminals and terrorists alike. Heroes from the previous wars are yet to receive their dues. All those who have lost their lives may have got awards for their bravery but their families are still not able to cope with life after that. There are many who have lost their arms and legs, most of them are willing to go back to the fronts once again if the nation requires. It is saddening that the government has done nothing about these courageous men. It is not the top officers, but the average Jawan who lost everything waging war against the enemy, but his spirit, who is fighting hard now to get a proper compensation. This at a time when the pay commission is playing games and creating havoc on the lives of the patriotic men who are afraid of nothing.

I salute the brave men who have sacrificed their lives over the years fighting the enemy. The nation will never forget you. Jai Hind!
