On 14th February, over 40 CRPF jawans were martyred after a horrific attack by the militant organization named Jaish-e-Mohammed in the Pulwama district in Kashmir.
The incident took the whole nation by shock, and no one could believe the tragedy that had struck our country. This is also considered to be one of the worst militant attacks in recent times.
One thing that struck everyone was the gaping wound these soldiers left behind. No amount of condolence messages could ever compensate for the tremendous loss that their loved ones were experiencing.
Consequently, a lot of people stepped in to ensure that the families of the martyred jawans had a secured future. For instance, some people like Virender Sehwag assured the families that they would take responsibility for the education of the jawans’ children.
Shikhar Dhawan had also released a video where he urged people to come forward and help the families. Mohammed Shami has now decided to follow suit.
He announced that he would be donating 5 lakhs to the wives of the martyred soldiers. He also mentioned that the families could rest assured, he would always help them if needed.
He stated that cricketers play for their country, but the soldiers are the real heroes who defend our country on the borders. He also promised to always stand by the jawans.
