Amit Kumar, New Delhi: Today is the 19th anniversary of the attack on the Indian Parliament. 


On December 13, 2001, the dark shadow of terrorism reached the Temple of democracy in India. The terrorists tried to enter the Parliament House building standing in the area considered to be safe from every danger.


The terrorists used white colored ambassadors for this and managed to get the security personnel burnt. But before his steps could pollute the temple of democracy, the security forces heaped him on it. A gang of gunmen targeted the temple of democracy in New Delhi by breaking into the tight security system of the Indian Parliament House.


On this occasion, Prime Minister Narendra Modi paid homage to the soldiers who were martyred in the Parliament attack and said that the country can never forget that cowardly attack. The PM tweeted that we will never forget the cowardly attack on our Parliament on this day in 2001. We remember the valor and sacrifice of those who lost their lives protecting their Parliament. India will always be thankful to them.


Nineteen years ago, on December 13, 2001, five Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorists attacked Parliament. All the terrorists were killed by the security personnel stationed in the Parliament complex. Five Delhi Police personnel, a woman constable of CRPF and two parliament guards were martyred in this attack.


The terrorists attacked the Parliament House when the winter session of Parliament was underway. At that time, hundreds of MPs were present in the Parliament House, including Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, LK Advani, Leader of Opposition Sonia Gandhi. But on the spot, the overcrowded security forces had killed five terrorists on the spot and failed their nefarious plans.


The main accused of the attack, Afzal Guru, was arrested by the Delhi Police, who was later sentenced to death by the court. Mohammad Afzal Guru was hanged in Tihar Jail, Delhi on 9 February 2013 in the morning.
