Salute! Puttur's brave soldier Zubair commended for fighting off LeT attack in Srinagar


Mangaluru, Feb 16: In a proud moment for the people of Dakshina Kannada, a soldier who is a native of the district was among the soldiers feted with Commendation Disc and Certificate for thwarting fidayeen attack at Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) camp at Srinagar on February 12.

The 28-year-old Zubair, a native of Puttur taluk serves with the 49th battalion of CRPF at Karan Nagar Battalion headquarters.

Speaking to daijiworld over the phone, Zubair said that in the early hours of February 12, they received information that terrorist had attempted to attack on the 23 battalion of CRPF. However, owing to quick retaliation by the security forces, the militants had retreated and fled to a building in the Karan Nagar area.

"We quickly zeroed-in on the location and cornered the 2-militants. In the operation that lasted over 30 hours, both the terrorists were killed. Unfortunately one of our constable Mojahid Khan from Bihar was killed during the counter-terror operation," Zubair said.

While the sentry of the battalion headquarters of Karan Nagar, Raghunath Ghait of CRPF has been hailed hero 'for his exceptional alertness, presence of mind' and has also been recommended for out-of-turn promotion by his superiors, it was this 28-year-old soldier, who first spotted suspicious movement of the terrorist outside the camp parliament and opened fire at them, after which the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) operandis aborted their attack plan.

Zubair along with the commandos of Quick Action Teams have been awarded Commendation Disc and Certificate by the director general of CRPF Rajeev Rai Bhatnagar that read 'For displaying thorough professionalism and unparalleled dedication, devotion and valour in eliminating the terrorist during the Karnnagar encounter dated 12/2/2018'.

A native of Haleneranki village in Puttur, Zubair finished his elementary education till 12th at Sri Ramakunjeshwara Educational Institution and completed his bachelor of business management degree in 2011 at St Philomena College. He is serving as a constable for CRPF and was trained at RTC CRPF Latur, Maharashtra. He joined the armed forces in 2013.

"This was my first special operation. Since my childhood I wanted to join the police force, but despite two attempts I was not selected. However, I cleared army selection in the first attempt itself and I am glad to serve the India Army. There are very few soldiers from this region in the armed forced. I hope more join," says the soldier who has been serving in Srinagar for the last two-and-a-half years.

Zubair got married October 2017 and returned to duty immediately after, and is anticipating a visit to his hometown in March this year. The tech-savvy soldier in his social media profile says that since 2015, he has been posted at Shri Maharaja Hari Singh Hospital or SMHS Hospital - which is very near to the Karan Nagar battalion headquarter.

To all the barking animals who always call Muslim's as Pakis or anti-national should learn from this Brave Muslim Soldier similar to him there are many Muslims soldiers who are fighting against the Pakis and their Mad Dogs. It is time now to stop calling by names to all our brothers and sisters treat them has our own family.

This is a a fitting slap on the face of one of the recently inducted union ministers from Karnataka hand picked by Modi to be in his government for his reprehensible statement threatening to banish a particular community from the face of this earth. I will not hesitate to salute brave people like Zubair a thousand times. He is the pride of my country and not ministers like the one who wants to destroy the social fabric of India.

    Bro Ramesh,

    I partly agree with you.In Islam this is what Jihad means fight for your nation,fight for peace.Jehad means struggle or sacrifice lavish life.

    Hats off to this wonderful youth Zubair and also his team.ZN and Owaisi are two different people one is politician ,another speaker.Both didn't loot 11000crore sorry now its 21000crore rs and ran off.They are seculars.Just because some media publish negative.They don't become negative.
    They don't need mine and yours conduct certificate.ZN is truthful if not KSA wouldn't have sheltered.We all Know KSA is a strict country with strict laws.

    "In Islam this is what Jihad means fight for your nation, fight for peace. Jihad means struggle or sacrifice lavish life" and "ZN is truthful if not KSA wouldn't have sheltered. We all Know KSA is a strict country with strict laws." ???????

    Really !!!! Are you serious Jihad means fight for peace & ZN is truthful ????? In the yesteryears when most people could not read and write they were all very gullible as took people for their word. But today when books and electronic media are easily available and if one spends a few minutes going through authentic sources - ALL the skeletons are out for the world to see when the closet doors are opened.

    STOP making a fool of yourself by such knowingly and wilfully wrong and misleading comments. Zubair is a soldier proudly wearing his Indian Uniform, and once any Indian wears this uniform he ceases to have any religion as he has now chosen to defend his motherland and we salute him for that.
