On 14th February, India witnessed one of the most disastrous terrorist attacks held in Pulwama. The attack led to the death of around 40 people. India avenged the attack by an air strike by the Indian Air Force (IAF) on Tuesday which reportedly led to the killings of about 350 terrorists and trainers. Pakistan ‘strongly rejected India’s claim’ of targeting terrorist camp near Balakot and causing heavy casualties.
Soon after the air strike by the IAF, many Bollywood celebrities hailed India’s military for their prompt action and it evoked patriotism in everyone’s hearts, reports DNA India. Online users, on the other hand, wished Pakistani celebrities to break their silence on the recent state of events between the two countries, beginning from Pulwama attack to the IAF’s air strike on Jaish-e-Mohammed’s biggest training camp in Pakistan.
Pakistan’s former Ministry of Planning, Development and Reform, Hussain Nadim tweeted on Tuesday, “Not gonna lie but in this entire #India – #Pakistan fiasco in recent days I’ve found a new respect for Pakistani journalists, analysts, celebrities & twitter folks. No calls for war, jingoism or hate-mongering with India. That tells a lot where we are headed.” Star Mahira Khan also broke her silence and quote tweeted Hussain’s tweet and wrote, “Same.”
Fatima Bhutto, granddaughter of former Pakistani Prime Minister Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto tweeted, “There is nothing uglier than people cheering for war. I pray for peace for India and Pakistan.” Mahira agreed to Fatima’s tweet and wrote, “Nothing uglier. Nothing more ignorant than cheering for war. May sense prevail.. Pakistan zindabad.”
