Tensions between India and Pakistan reached its height after more than 40 CRPF jawans were killed in the Pulwama massacre on February 14. However, despite, these growing tensions Salaria didn’t step back from helping the locals.
"While India-Pakistan tensions were high following the Pulwama incident, we were installing hand pumps in these poor villages," Joginder Singh Salaria, who launched the Pehal Charitable Trust, was quoted as saying by the Khaleej Times.
