4. 40 CRPF SOLDIERS WERE KILLED PULWAMA TERROR ATTACK



At least 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) paramilitary troopers were killed and others continue to battle their lives in the deadliest terror attack witnessed in three decades of Kashmir insurgency. The horrific terror attack occurred on February 14, 2019 in Pulwama, Kashmir, India when a 78-vehicle convoy was escorting over 2,500 CRPF Jawans from Jammu to Srinagar. A SUV packed with explosives rammed into one of the buses belonging to the convoy. The incident has left India and the countries around the world in shock.

Federation of Jain Associations in North America (JAINA) extends deepest condolences and sympathies to the families and friends of all the CRPF martyrs. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families.

We recognize that various organizations have started similar relief funds and you may wonder why you should send your donations through JAINA:

JAINA does not charge any administrative fee to the relief fund. 100% of the donations will go towards relief effort. In fact, JAINA volunteers and partners will volunteer their time and experience to the cause.Funds collected by JAINA will be spent in a completely non-violent manner keeping in mind the Jain principles.

We request you to send your tax deductible (USA) contribution payable to JAINA, at World Community Services, 2960 Mother Well Court, Oak Hill, VA 20171 or donate online: www.jaina.org/donations. For further information or suggestions, please contact us. Pmehta1851@gmail.com
