On a day when India’s President and PM saluted our Air Force — on Air Force Day, a shameful tragedy has tarnished the sense of pride on this fateful day.
Pictures of martyred soldiers put in cardboard box, tied with ropes are circulating on the internet. The photos demeaning the soldiers’ efforts are causing massive outrage on the internet.
Lieutenent HD Panag shared these images on social media and soon resentment followed.

People on Twitter are terming this as ‘shameful’ and are questioning the government on nationalism and the way they treat the soldiers who fight for the nation.
