‘Fools Cheering For Fools’: Pakistani Artists Condemn Indian Intrusion, Media And Celebrities
Pakistani celebrities have condemned India’s intrusion of the Pakistan airspace and said that they stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the army and the government in this crucial time.
Earlier on Tuesday, Indian jets intruded into Pakistani airspace but after facing timely and effective response from Pakistan Air Force released payload in Jabba while escaping. The Indian media also claimed to have ‘killed’ 350 people with their ‘strike’ during Indian jets’ ’21 minute stay’ in Pakistan. All of these claims have been rejected by the ISPR.
Pakistanis have condemned the attack and have offered full support to the army and the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government. The showbiz industry has a lot to say about the incident too.
Actress Armeena Rana Khan condemned some Bollywood actors and celebrities glorifying war. ‘Artists are supposed to be sane, pacifying voices’, she said.
I’m watching SOME of these “Bollywood” accounts in dismay, glorifying war (people should take note) In the future, these particular individuals shouldn’t be allowed to preach peace to the world. Artists are supposed to be sane, pacifying voices. 🤷🏻♀️ #theinternetneverforgets
