How’s the jaish (Jaish-e-Mohammed) is how the pro-Pakistani forces have been reacting to the Pulwama terror attack which has killed 42 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) jawans and two Road Operating Party (ROP) officials.
While some asked “How’s the Jaish?”, some termed the Pulwama terror attack as “Surgical Strike 2.0” on the CRPF jawans in Jammu and Kashmir.
Mathematics student at Aligarh Muslim University (AMU), Basim Hilal, was one of the first ones to celebrate the Pulwama terror attack. His handle, however, was suspended by Twitter minutes after the tweet.
Another tweeted: “It is called surgical strike.” Her statement was followed by a hashtag: #RealSurgicalStrike.
Some even called it a Valentine’s Day wish from the Jaish-e-Mohammed.
In one of the deadliest terror attacks in Jammu and Kashmir’s three decades of militancy, a Jaish suicide bomber identified as Adil Ahmed Dar, rammed an explosives-laden vehicle into a CRPF bus that was part of a 78-vehicle convoy in Pulwama district, killing 44 personnel and leaving many critically wounded.
More than 2,500 Central Reserve Police Force personnel, many of them returning from leave to rejoin duty in the Valley, were travelling in the convoy of 78 vehicles when they were ambushed on the Srinagar-Jammu highway at Latoomode in Awantipora in south Kashmir around 3.15 pm.
Adil Dar was driving a vehicle packed with over 200 kg of explosives on the wrong side of the road and hit the bus, in which 39-44 personnel were travelling, an official at the spot said.
