webpack error - Module build failed: Error: Parse Error without filename

ModuleBuildError: Module build failed: Error: Parse Error:
To make this worse, it only showed me the line number but not the file. After checking this issue, I decided to switch to using babel-loader instead of jsx loader. My webpack config now has the following loader configuration
