Won’t cry on son’s martyrdom, will keep promise: Jawan’s mother
As the body of BSF brave heart Gurnam Singh wrapped in the tricolour arrived at his home, his mother Jaswant Kaur kept the promise made to her son not to cry over his martyrdom.
The family is proud of the sacrifice made by the 26-year-old in the line of duty but demanded a specialised hospital in his name for the border guards and troops injured on IB and LoC to help save their lives.
The jawan's father also asked the Prime Minister to give a befitting reply to Pakistan.
Gurnam Singh succumbed to injures at a hospital in Jammu on Saturday night after he was injured in a sniping incident on the International Border in Kathua sector on Friday.
A pall of gloom descended on Gurnam's native village Bhalesar Magowali in R S Pura tehsil, which is close to the Indo-Pakistan border as the body of the jawan arrived.
Holding back her tears, Gurnam's mother said, "I will not cry. I have promised this to my son. Gurnam once said mummy, don't cry if I sacrifice my life for the nation. I said I won't...he made us proud. We are proud of his martyrdom".
