HIGHLIGHTS
    • Leading cricketers saluted IAF for their befitting reply to Pakistan. 
    • In wake of Pulwama Attack, IAF responds in style.
    • As per the schedule, India will play against Pakistan in the World Cup.

The Government of India confirmed attacks by Indian Air Force (IAF) jets on terror camps across the Line of Control (LoC) early on Tuesday. India said the attacks targeted the biggest training camp of Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) which claimed responsibility for the suicide terror attack on a CRPF convoy in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district on February 14, martyring over 40 personnel. 

The Pulwama terror attack has created a deep rift in various walks of the society and even the cricketing community is divided over the question of playing Pakistan in the ICC World Cup in England and Wales starting in May.

Post this flamboyant attack, the cricketing community has once again united and lauded the Indian Air Force army. 

Here are the tweets: 

The Indian cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar took to the twitter and said, “Our niceness should never be comprehended as our weakness. I salute the IAF, Jai Hind”

Virendra Sehwag emulated his idol and responded in his style and said, “The boys have played really well. #SudharJaaoWarnaSudhaarDenge #airstrike”

India’s left-handed batsman Suresh Raina salutes Indian Air Force for their great effort and said, “My salute to #IAF for showing great courage in the face of adversity. A fitting reply to cowardice! #JaiHind”

India’s Test vice-captain, Ajinkya Rahane also took to Twitter and said, “Bravo to the #IndianAirForce! They have sent a much-needed message against terror. We are proud of you. Jai Hind!”

Yuzvendra Chahal said, “Indian Air Force Bohot Hard Bohot Hard #IndiaStrikesBack #JaiHind”
