On the solemn anniversary of the the surgical strikes, the nation commemorates the audacious and resolute action taken by the Indian Army through the historic surgical strikes carried out seven years ago. These strikes, which took place on the intervening night of September 28 and 29, 2016, were a stern message to those who harbored nefarious designs against India.


Uri Terror Attack


The Uri terror attack, which occurred on September 18, 2016, was a devastating blow to our nation. Four heavily armed terrorists infiltrated the Indian Army's administrative base in Uri, Jammu and Kashmir, and unleashed a horrific assault that resulted in the martyrdom of 19 brave soldiers. This act of aggression sent shockwaves across the nation, prompting calls for a strong response.


The Surgical Strikes

In response to the Uri attack, the Indian Army undertook a series of surgical strikes, demonstrating its unwavering commitment to safeguarding the nation and its people. These surgical strikes were carried out meticulously, targeting multiple terrorist launch pads across the Line of Control (LoC).

Under the leadership of the Special Forces, Indian soldiers crossed the LoC, infiltrated into enemy territory, and executed swift and precise operations. The primary objective was to neutralize the terrorists and their handlers who posed a direct threat to India's security. The surgical strikes were not only a military triumph but also a powerful message that India would respond decisively to acts of terror.

The Global Community Responds

The surgical strikes were not only applauded by the Indian populace but also garnered attention and support from the international community. Several countries expressed their solidarity with India and condemned terrorism in all its forms. The strikes underscored India's commitment to defending its sovereignty and ensuring the safety of its citizens.

Honoring Our Heroes

As we reflect on this momentous day, it's imperative to pay tribute to the valiant soldiers who executed the surgical strikes with utmost bravery and precision. Their unwavering dedication to the nation serves as a shining example for all. We remember the sacrifices made by our soldiers to protect our borders and maintain peace.

A Time for Remembrance and Resolve

Seven years have passed since that fateful night, but the memory of the surgical strikes remains etched in our collective consciousness. It is a reminder of our nation's resilience, our soldiers' valor, and our commitment to eradicating terrorism. As we honor the memory of the Uri attack's martyrs and celebrate the success of the surgical strikes, we also renew our resolve to stand strong against any threat to India.
