Meerut Groom just stopped his Baraat only to Salute Pulwama Martyr’s Funeral Procession

In a touching gesture, a ‘baraat’ stopped just as the funeral procession of a Pulwama Martyr passed by. Harsh Goenka took to his official Twitter handle to share the photo with the caption, “Meerut’s bridegroom dismounts his horse and the baraat stops to salute the funeral procession of Martyr Ajay Kumar. We too salute our martyrs. We will not let their sacrifice go waste.”

Soon after seeing the funeral procession, he stopped the baraat, dismounted the horse and along with his sister, saluted the martyr.

In Pulwama terror blast, 55 Rashtriya Rifles personnel were martyred in a gunfight. The security forces were conducting a search operation when the militants ‘open fire’ on them. The martyred soldiers identified as Major V S Dhondial, Havaldar Sheo Ram and Sepoys Hari Singh and Ajay Kumar.

PTI quoted the Mother of Sepoy Ajay Kumar as saying that, “Pakistan has killed so many sons; Pakistan is not that big that India cannot destroy it. India can destroy it in one day. I am proud of my son, he sacrificed his life for the country.”

The top Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) commander Abdul Rasheed Ghazi was successfully neutralised by the Indian security forces in the 12-hour-long encounter.
