I don't need to condemn an attack publicly to prove my patriotism: Sania Mirza on Pulwama terror attack
As the entire nation grieves the death of Indian soldiers of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), tennis star Sania Mirza was trolled for sharing pictures of herself instead of expressing her sorrow for the martyrs.
Responding to the trolls, the Hyderabad-based star posted a note saying she doesn’t need to condemn the attack publicly. “This post is for those people who think that as celebrities we need to 'condemn' an attack, tweet, and Instagram and be all over social media to prove that we are patriotic and care about our country.. Why?”
She further said, “I don't need to condemn an attack publicly, or come and scream from rooftops or all over social media that we are against terrorism.. of course, we are against terrorism and anyone that spreads it... any person in their right mind is against terrorism and if they are not then that's a problem!!”
Wife of Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik, Sania also added although she prays for peace, the day won’t be forgotten or forgiven. “This day will be forgotten neither be forgiven but YES I will still pray for peace and you should too instead of spreading more hate.. anger is good as long as it's being channelled into something productive.. you are achieving nothing by trolling other people.”
40 CRPF soldiers died in a terrorist attack that took place in Jammu Kashmir’s Pulwama district last week. The Pakistan-backed Jaish-e-Mohammad claimed responsibility for what has become one of the worst terror attacks on the forces in the last few decades. Many celebrities including Ranveer Singh, Vicky Kaushal, Ayushmann Khurrana, Aamir Khan, Ajay Devgn, Priyanka Chopra and Anupam Kher expressed their sorrow.
