On February 14th of this year, a deadly terrorist attack took place in India: a suicide bombing in Pulwama, Jammu-Kashmir took the lives of 40 members of the Central Reserve Police Force and left many others severely wounded.
When the news of the Pulwama attack reached Amma, Amma immediately said, “It is our dharma (responsibility) to support the families of these brave men who died while doing their duty.” Amma then announced that Mata Amritanandamayi Math would give Rs. 500,000 (US $6,000) to each of the 40 families who lost a member in the tragedy.
At the Amritavarsham venue, in the presence of Amma, Sri. Rajnath Singh, Honorable Raksha Mantri of India handed over the cheque to the families of the brave souls who sacrificied their lives for Mother India.
