While most Bollywood actors in India are not quite educated, they behave like boors. A little-known actress Priyanka Chopra has joined a large group of violent people with monstrous tendencies who are celebrating human death and destruction.
While India and Pakistan are on the verge of a gory war, the actress has preferred bloodshed by saluting the Indian Air Force (IAF) which attacked the Pakistani territory on February 26 with the claims that 350 people were killed in the attack. “Jai Hind Indian Armed Forces,” Priyanka Chopra tweeted after the attack.
The belligerent behavior of the Indian actress has triggered a pervasive outrage among the people who do not want war between the two nuclear-armed nations.
An online petition has been launched on Change.org to condemn her secret desire for war. “Priyanka Chopra doesn’t deserve to be a Goodwill Ambassador for the UN,” the petition suggests.
It adds that in her attempt to express her nationalism towards her country India, Priyanka Chopra tweeted her support for the Indian Air Force’s violation of entering into Pakistan’s territory.
Through her tweet, according to the petition, she has celebrated an attempt at war against Pakistan while war destroys the life of innocent people and it must be condemned at any cost.
Considering her role as the UN Ambassador of child rights and education for girls, the petition suggests, Chopra needs to learn a lesson on how devastating the impact of war can be, especially for children.
The petition urges the United Nations to take back her ambassadorship since she is neither an ambassador of goodwill nor peace.
The heightened confrontation between the two countries follows the recent terror attack on CRPF (Central Reserve Police Force) men in the Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir (J&K) in which more than 40 Indian men died.
Pakistan has repeatedly asserted that India’s ruling party BJP under PM Narendra Modi has stage-managed the terrorists attack on its soil to solicit people’s support when the Lok Sabha election is just a few months away.
Pakistan PM Imran Khan also asserted that Modi is trying to take advantage in the upcoming election by blaming Pakistan without any evidence for attacks on the Indians. It is being observed that the Modi’s party BJP is taking undue political mileage for attacks by the Indian Air Force (IAF) on Pakistan.
Jai Hind #IndianArmedForces 🇮🇳 🙏🏽

The chattering classes also argue that India cannot blame the outsiders such as Pakistan terrorists for the incidents that are happening in India. It is the responsibility of the Indian government and Indian security forces to avert such attacks instead of blaming Pakistan or external terrorists.
It is being asked why Indian security forces allow Pakistan terrorists to enter India. So, Modi cannot blame Pakistan for his own failures and India cannot blame others for its own security lapses.
