After the Indian Air Force (IAF) bombed a Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) terror camp in Pakistani territory on Tuesday morning, India witnessed a wave of celebration across many states.
Thousands of people took to the streets with the tri-color in their hands and celebrated the day in high ‘josh’.
Manoj, an auto driver from Delhi offered free rides to passengers by putting up a poster on his auto praising IAF and thanking Modiji.
Even private businesses celebrated the day by offering discounts on food, products, and various services.
However, the biggest tribute to the attack came from a mother and father in Rajasthan who named their newborn ‘Mirage Singh Rathore’.
They decided to name their son after the fighter-jet because he was born at 3:50 AM on Tuesday, the same time when IAF carried out the attack on the JeM terror camp in Balakot.
Mahavir Singh and Sonam Singh, who are residents of Dabda village in Rajasthan’s Nagaur district, come from a family of army men.

Just two weeks after terrorists based out of Pakistan carried out terror attacks in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama, killing 40 innocent CRPF personnel, Indian Air Force fighter jets launched a major offensive on Tuesday, dropping heavy artillery in Pakistani territory in an early morning strike.
As many as 12 Mirage 2000 jets struck a Jaish-e-Muhammed (JeM) terror launch pad in Balakot.
