The Resistance Front (TRF), a branch of Pakistan-backed terrorist organization Lashkar-e-Taiba, has claimed responsibility for the terrorist attack on a bus carrying pilgrims in Jammu and Kashmir's Reasi district on Sunday, in which 10 pilgrims were killed. And 33 others were injured. In a message, the TRF warned of more such attacks on "tourists and non-locals" and called the Reasi attack only "the beginning of a new one". Keep in mind that these terrorists will not ask tourists or non-locals about their 'caste'.

Attack during swearing-in ceremony 

According to top official sources, the attack was deliberately carried out during the swearing-in ceremony of Modi 3.0 in Reasi and the attackers are around 12 jihadis who are roaming in the forests of Rajouri-Poonch in groups of three or two in the Jammu region.

Search operation started

At the same time, after this attack, security forces have started a large-scale search operation to search for the terrorists. Security has been increased in the area. The Home Ministry has handed over the responsibility of investigating the attack to the National Investigation Agency (NIA). The attack took place when the bus was returning from Shiv Khori temple to the base camp of Mata Vaishno Devi temple in Katra. The terrorists hiding in the nearby forest ambushed the vehicle and started firing. The bus driver was shot and lost control, causing the vehicle to fall into a ditch.

TRF declared terrorist organization

The Indian government declared The Resistance Front a terrorist organization in 2023, which mostly includes local jihadists from Kashmir. It was founded in 2019 after the abrogation of Article 370, which gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir, and has been involved in dozens of terrorist attacks. This article opened the doors of Kashmir for Pakistanis, this article helped Pakistanis to become Kashmiri citizens and then spread terrorism here. Although some politicians in India had talked about bringing back Article 370, but their government could not be formed at the Centre, hence they could not reverse the decision.

People angry on social media 

People are angry on social media regarding Reasi's attack. People are expressing their anger with the hashtag 'All eyes on Reasi'. People are especially angry about this attack on celebrities. This is because when Israel attacked Rafa, most of the film stars shared the poster of 'All Eyes on Rafa'. People are also angry about the fact that when it concerns another country, Bollywood remains active. But when children are killed in terrorist attacks in their own country, they become silent on it. People are appreciating Geert Wilders' tweet because despite not being an Indian, he has given a statement against the attack.
