On this day, the Border Security force is celebrating its 57th raising day. BSF was formed on December 1, 1965, as a unified central agency after the Indo-Pak and India-China wars for keeping a check and maintaining the security of the borders of India and the matters connected to the country that are important to be taken care of. BSF is among the five Central Armed Police Forces of the Union of India and is one of the world’s largest border guarding forces. Also, the Border Security forces have been named as the First Line of Defence of Indian Territories.
“01 December 2021 on #BSFDay2021 as we turn 57, our ‘journey’ in the service of the motherland continues for eternity. It is an honour to serve and protect. A promise we shall forever keep: Jeevan Paryant Kartavya,” tweeted BSF.
BSF IG DK Boora on Wednesday said that the day brings immense joy and pride for the force. IG Boora said, “BSF is celebrating its 57th Raising Day and it is a time of immense joy for us.” He went on to remind the remarkable missions undertaken by the forces on an auspicious day. “As far as the Jammu frontier is concerned, BSF is present at the border with readiness. BSF has made several achievements this year at the border. We are ready to face any challenge put forth,” he further exclaimed.
With strong domination and regular surveillance, Jammu and Kashmir have experienced continuous peace in recent years. BSF Jammu has been successful in carrying out anti-tunnel drives along international borders and because of its dedicated efforts, it was able to detect two tunnels on the International Border in January 2021. With the unearthing of these tunnels, the BSF helped in exposing the nefarious designs of Pakistan-based terrorists. BSF’s persistent efforts and dedicated mindset are fostering a peaceful and harmonious society that everyone deserves.
