Pressure also mounted on Government from rest other fronts. And if not a war, the government at centre, in retaliation, carried out a mid-night surgical strike that made every Indian to feel proud and took it as the real revenge against this ‘forever- enemy- country’. Many also attributed it as a tribute to our martyrs of Uri.

No citizen of the country will tolerate such inhuman and cowardice behaviour of Pakistan, the nation promoting terrorists,” said Atif Alam, a participant in the procession. “In no case we support terrorists and the hidden support of Pakistan to them. Hence, through the procession, we condemn such brutal activity of a nation who is our neighbour and at one point of time was with us,” commented Asaf Ali Khan, another senior member of the Muslim community. “We are proud to be Indians,” Asaf reiterated. This is also the day that coincides with the Bhasani Sobhayatra (procession) of Maa Durga Puja all over the country including that of Sambalpur. But people here were seen with high sense of respect to each other during the procession. Interestingly, a Hindu family of the town has been organizing Tazia procession since decades as mark of respect to other religion.
