The Nation has been engulfed in deep anguish and extreme infuriation after Pakistan backed terrorist organisation, Jaish-e-Mohammad, audaciously attacked a convoy of 70 vehicles of the CRPF carrying 2500 personnel which was on its way from Jammu to Srinagar. In what is being considered the most gruesome attack in the last 3 decades, over 40 CRPF personnel lost their lives as a suicide bomber, rammed an explosive-laden car into the CRPF bus, which was part of the convoy.
In wake of the ghastly terrorist attack, the popular music company T-series had unlisted a song sung by Atif Aslam, a Pakistani national on its YouTube channel.
Two eminent personalities from the film fraternity, Kangana Ranaut and singer Sonu Nigam also shared their anger and resentment, which, most of the people of India can identify with in the aftermath of the dreadful attack.
While Nigam took a caustic dig on people who have raised slogans of ‘Bharat Tere Tukde Honge, Inshallah Inshallah” and Afzal Hum Sharminda Hain, Tere Qatil Zinda Hain” in JNU a couple of years ago and had called out the secular liberal gang and their supporters for pretending to care for the soldiers who have lost their lives, Kangana too expressed her disdain for the ‘Aman Ki Asha’ preachers, who pretend to call for peace and dialogue while turning a blind eye towards the very religious fanaticism that causes deaths and violence in the Kashmir.
Kangana Ranaut had even cancelled the celebratory event organised for the recent success of her movie Manikarnika to stand in solidarity with the grieving families of the CRPF Jawans.
