Over a month, tensions between India and Pakistan have increased multifold. The attack on Uri left at least 19 Indian soldiers dead and India resolved to not let it go. Prime Minister Narendra Modi – in many of his speeches – had said that the attack will not go unanswered, and it didn’t. In retaliation, India carried out surgical strikes along the Line of Control on several terrorist launch pads causing ‘significant casualties’.

But while people of the country are celebrating the strike, families of the soldiers deployed on and around the border are scared for the lives of their loved ones guarding the country. After the strike, security has been tightened, and leaves of all the jawans have been cancelled because the possibility of a military operation between India and Pakistan has increased.

In the wake of the situation, cricketer Mohammad Kaif tweeted a heartwarming message for our jawans which touched a chord with many. “Leave of all Jawans have been cancelled. If in train or bus, you see a Jawan without a seat, do offer them a seat,” he tweeted.

This polite request by the cricketer isn’t anything that one might find difficult to do and it’s probably the least we, as citizens of the country, can collectively decide to do. Many came forth and applauded this gesture by Kaif, adding their own heartwarming messages for the Indian Army.

Kaif is not the first cricketer who has spoken after Uri attack. Virender Sehwag and Virat Kohli had also raised their concern.
