Pakistani singer-actor Ali Zafar, this Tuesday, appreciated Pakistan PM Imran Khan’s address to India over the Pulwama terror attack that took place on Thursday. Ali, who has played the lead in a number of Bollywood films including Tere Bin Laden, Mere Brother Ki Dulhan, Chashme Baddoor, Total Siyapaa, Kill Dil, and Dear Zindagi, wrote in a tweet, “What a speech! @ImranKhanPTI”
“Listen with an open heart and mind devoid of ego, bias or hatred. If can’t, listen again after a few days in a moment of peace.#love #peace # #humanity #togetherness above all. PM Imran Khan Address To The Nation,” he wrote in another tweet.
Imran Khan, in his nearly sixty-minute-long speech, denied Pakistan’s involvement in the Pulwama attack. The Pakistan PM said that his country itself was a victim of terrorism and that 70,000 Pakistanis had lost their lives to that tragedy. He also forewarned India of retaliation if it launched an attack on Pakistan.
“You (India) have blamed the Pakistan government without any evidence...If you have any evidence, we will act,” Imran said.
“We have fought a war against terrorism for 15 years, 70,000 Pakistanis have lost their lives, terrorism is receding, peace and stability are returning... what benefit would we get from it,” the PM asked.
“If you think you will attack us and we will not think of retaliating…we will retaliate. We all know starting a war is in the hands of humans, where it will lead us only God knows. This issue should be solved through dialogue,” he further added.
Ali undauntedly endorsing his PM’s message to India has not gone down well with a plethora of Indian users on Twitter. While some have literally warned him to not come back to India for work, there are people who have called him ‘namak haraam.’
Pakistan-based terror group Jaish-E-Mohammed, has openly claimed responsibility for the Pulwama terror attack. It was initiated by a local Kashmiri boy, the 22-year-old Adil Ahmad Dar, who had joined the Jaish last year. Adil rammed his Scorpio car, consisting 350 kilograms of RDX, into a CRPF convoy of 78 buses killing some 40 jawans.
