Chandigarh Auto Driver’s salute to all those 44 CRPF men who attained martyrdom
‘Mohabaat karne wale kuch aisa faraz nibha gae,
ke mohabat karne wale din hi apni jaan watan par luta gae.’
On February 14, when people all around the world were celebrating the day of love, then there were some people who planned exactly the opposite. Instead of love, they spewed hatred in Jammu and Kashmir by killing 44 CRPF men who were sons, brothers, husbands and fathers and had some dreams for their country and families.
The Jaish-al- Mohammad militants not only killed CRPF men but also traumatized their families by snatching away their bread-winners. People across the nation are carrying out candlelight marches to pay their respect to all those who attained martyrdom. People across India are requesting government in their own way, including calling for ‘bandh’ for stern action. The people of India want the government to make terrorists pay a heavy price for what they did.
One such request comes from Anil Kumar who drives auto rickshaw for seven years, in Chandigarh. He has a poster which says, ‘the day the Indian government takes revenge of Pulwama attack, he will provide free rides to everyone in Chandigarh for one full month.’
Anil Kumar’s wife, who works in a saloon, gave him this idea. They felt helpless for not being able to help the Army men in any way. It is not the first time; Anil Kumar is doing something as a gratitude for the Army men. He had been providing free services to them for 7 years now.

Not only this, he had been providing free services to the pregnant ladies. He had been saving lives by rushing accident victims to the hospitals.
So, next time you sit in his auto, just salute his spirit, his efforts.
