"If necessary, our hospital is ready to provide the best possible treatment to the injured jawans. We shall also deem it to be our duty to shoulder any other responsibility the government may place upon us in service to our beloved Armed Forces."

"The entire Reliance Parivar fully shares the outrage of 1.3 billion Indians at the barbaric terrorist attack on a CRPF convoy on the Jammu-Srinagar highway on Thursday, in which 40 brave jawans were martyred. "No evil power in this world can break India's unity or our resolve to defeat terrorism, which is an enemy of humanity," said the foundation.

"Our hearts go out to the bereaved members of the martyrs' families. The nation will never forget the brave hearts and their sacrifice. We pray for the recovery of the injured jawans. As citizens, as well as a Corporate Citizen, we stand fully behind our Armed Forces and our Government in this hour of national solidarity."
