In the wake of the dastardly Uri attacks on Indian armed forces on september 18, social media has been a battlefield – with picking out sides to debating unstoppably over the who’s right, over and over again, defining their condemnation, anger, grief! Adding fuel to fire is the multiple newsroom debates where Indians are arguing amongst themselves. And to make matters worse, there is the political call to ban Pakistani actors. The entire nation is in whirlwind of emotions that at times it might just be driving us away from a mojor objective!
An actor who is known to never mince his word and fearlessly talking about his opinion on the matter, Akshay Kumar recently posted a video on twitter.
Here’s what he has to say….
“I am not talking to you as a star or celebrity. I am talking to as an army man’s son. I have been noticing since long that in news and newspapers our own countrymen are arguing with each other. Some are asking for surgical strikes proof. Some are demanding that artists be banned. Some are scared of whether a war will happen or not. Gentlemen, please argue later. First please think about those who have laid down their lives for you at the border. 19 jawans attained martyrdom in Uri attacks. One 24 -year-old soldier Nitin Kumar sacrificed his life in Baramulla. Are their families and every other army family concerned about whether a film will release or not or will an artist be banned or not? They have just one worry, just one concern- their future. We should be see to it that their present and future should be correct and secured. They are there guarding us and that is why I and you are alive today. If they are not there to guard us, Hindustan will not be left. Jai Hind.”
