On February 14, India was shocked after the Pulwama attack from the Pakistan based terrorist group Jaish-e-Mohammed as more than 40 Indian CRPF soldiers had lost their lives in a cowardly attack and there were calls of severing ties with Pakistan in every sector. Among all the cricketers, former Indian opener, Gautam Gambhir was the most vocal and he also felt that the talks with Pakistan shouldn’t be on the table now and its time to go on the battlefield.

Ever since the attack, there were a lot of discussions and arguments over various issues. Even the calls for India boycotting Pakistan in the World Cup also increased as the final decision on the same is yet to be taken.

It has been reported that in a big overnight operation, the Indian Air Force (IAF) has destroyed the terror camps at three locations in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK).
