Surgical strike by Indian Army: Bollywood reacts to India’s answer to Uri attack by Pakistan
Salman Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Akshay Kumar, Amitabh Bachchan, Lata Mangeshkar, Asha Bhosle, Madhur Bhandarkar commented on the surgical strikes by the Indian Army. Cricketers like MS Dhoni and Virender Sehwag also tweeted in support.
Mumbai, September 29: Right after the news of surgical strikes by the Indian Army along the Line of Control (LoC) was announced this morning, Bollywood as always expressed their support to the country and to the army on Twitter. Director Madhur Bhandarkar, known for his hard-hitting films, and acclaimed actor Paresh Rawal were among the first to tweet their support to the Army and Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Actors Salman Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Akshay Kumar, John Abraham, Sonakshi Sinha, Nikhil Dwivedi, legendary singers Lata Mangeshkar and Asha Bhosle, and filmmaker Hansal Mehta later commented on the strike. Many aam aadmi Indians and government officials also tweeted and the Indian Army Twitter handle posted a statement. The surgical strikes were in retaliation to the Uri attacks carried out by four militants in Jammu and Kashmir, who were allegedly Pakistan agents.
Starting 2 am IST on September 29, the Indian Army began surgical strikes at some terror launchpads along the LoC. The news, announced by Army Director General of Military Operations Lt General Ranbir Singh and confirmed by Ministry of External Affairs Spokesman Vikas Swarup, came as a shock to Pakistan, who initially denied that such an incident had happened. Pakistan termed it as cross-firing and not a surgical strike by India. But Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has now said that the country will retaliate and that their silence does not mean they will not act.
Social media of both India and Pakistan has been abuzz with an imminent Indo-Pak war after the Uri attack by Pakistan, with hate spewing over from both ends on Twitter and Facebook. After the Uran scare too, people were talking about a war or more acts of terrorism. But the Uran sightings of terrorists turned out to be a prank by school children of the Navi Mumbai port area, so did the news of four people being spotted in Pathankot in Punjab. The surgical strike is being touted as a befitting reply by Narendra Modi to his Pakistan counterpart.
