Does covalent or ionic bond bond is stronger?

I will believe this is related to bond strength! You cannot categorically state that one kind of bond is stronger than another. It will depend on the elements involved and the elements around them.

In fact covalent bond is more stronger. I think you know the defnitions of both the bonds. In case ionic bond, it is formed by the complete transfer of electrons. And an electrostatic force of attraction lies between the two atoms (which is nothing but the ionic bond). But this bond is liable to brake if sufficient force of attraction is provided to seperate the atoms. In case of covalent bond it is like 'permanent'.
Bond strength is actully related to bond order. And bond order comes only in case of covalent bond, so I think it has no role to play here.
