Amma to give families of soldiers killed in Kashmir support money
February 19, 2019 - Amritapuri, India
The Mata Amritanandamayi Math will give $7,000 US to each family of the more than 40 Indian soldiers killed on February 14th. The terror attack occurred in Pulwama, Jammu & Kashmir as the paramilitary convoy passed by.
“It is our duty to support the families of these brave men who died while doing their duty of protecting the nation,” said Amma. “My heart goes out to their families and loved ones. May we all pray for their peace and wellbeing.”
The soldiers were with India’s Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF). The Mata Amritanandamayi Math announced the donation as Amma was travelling to Mysore, Karnataka--the first stop on the northern leg of her 2019 tour of India.
