Jawans breathes to die for his nation. Their contribution and sacrifices are incomparable. It is our duty to respect their passion and courage that they show while protecting us and fighting off the enemies.
But a violent video of Kashmiri mob disrespecting CRPF Jawans and thrashing them made us realize that the heroic status of these Jawans is being reduced to nothing. These Kashmiri youths abused, slapped and thrashed the CRPF officers. The video went viral and made our blood boil.

The officers didn’t say a word or did anything in their defense. But their integrity should not be misinterpreted as cowardice. Twitter flooded with angry tweets and many celebrities showed their support and vented their anger on social media.
Anupam Kher sent an open warning that people should not take panga with our soldiers.
As a peace loving person I may applaud our soldiers for their restraint. But I still want to say, “Don’t take panga with our soldiers.”🇮🇳 pic.twitter.com/VN0nH0AqDx

Here is what Mohammad Kaif said,
Appalled seeing the video of attack on our Jawaans.Extremely stupid of attackers to think of our #CRPFJawaans restraint as their weakness.
