Sonam Kapoor’s call for peace draws flak on social media
The events of the past few days have been quite testing for the people of India and Pakistan alike. People have been glued to their television sets for breaking news, their newspapers for analysis and their social media accounts to share their sentiments towards their respective countries. Hashtags have been flying left, right and centre with most looking for a peaceful solution. One such is #SayNoToWar. Sonam Kapoor was one of the many celebrities who decided to share her thoughts on the current situation between India and Pakistan. Actually, it wasn’t quite her thought but a post that she clearly agrees with.
This post originally appeared on a Facebook page called Humans of Hindutva and mentions how both Hindu and Islamic fundamentalist have been spreading violence, bringing no good to any. “Ordinary citizens everywhere just want to have a normal life and go to the world and raise their children well and save up for a decent home,” reads a line from the post. Netizens, however, do not seem to be in sync with this line of thought and are calling Sonam Kapoor an anti-Hindu for sharing this post.
While Sonam has been at the receiving end, her Veere Di Wedding co-star and friend Swara Bhaskar has been shutting down Pakistani actress Veana Malik like a boss. Via Twitter, Veena is rather being disrespectful towards India. In fact, she even mocked Wing Commander Abhinandan as she shared his picture on social media with a nasty message. This did not go down well will Swara who gave it back to her with full force.Read More
