Priyanka Chopra, who once lived in India and often performs the role of a ‘peacenik’, is now facing strong denunciation from similar ‘peace-loving’ Pakistani citizens after she came out in support of the Indian Air Force and tweeted, “Jai Hind”. The peace-loving, intelligent Pakistanis have now expressed their anguish over Priyanka Chopra’s support to Indian armed forces and have demanded the removal of the actress as a goodwill ambassador of UNICEF.
“War between two nuclear powers can only lead to destruction & death. As goodwill ambassador of UNICEF, Priyanka Chopra was supposed to stay neutral and peaceful but her tweet in favour of Indian arm forces after they invaded Pakistan airspace shows otherwise. She doesn’t deserve this title anymore,” the petition read.
Priyanka Chopra, whose parents were both doctors in the Indian Army, had incidentally supported the Indian Armed Forces after it had carried out air strikes to target the Jaish terrorist camps inside Pakistan. Interestingly, soon after Pulwama terrorist attacks that had killed more than 40 security personnel, Priyanka had turned to be a peacenik to claim hate was never an answer. Priyanka could not get herself to outright condemn Pakistan for sending terrorists to bleed India with a thousand cuts.
Despite Indian ‘peaceniks’ trying hard to project Pakistani establishment as a messiah of peace, the true nature of Pakistanis manifests itself as they attack individuals for merely expressing their love for the country. Interestingly, such intolerance towards Indians also indicates that despite the fact that ‘peacemaking’ is a good business venture, which has also been India’s policy towards Pakistan for so long, it has failed to achieve everlasting peace between two countries.
Priyanka Chopra, like other fellow peaceniks in the country, deliberately ignores the fact that the peace movements with Pakistan like ‘Aman Ki Asha’ has no influence in making the terrorist state of Pakistan to give up its terror policy of ‘bleeding India with a thousand cuts’. In fact, Pakistani establishment and its citizens have no respect for this Indian ‘peace’ non-sense and have often targetted us under the garb of restoring ‘peace’.
The ‘peaceniking’ is post-modernism hypocrisy which no one comprehends. The ‘pacifist’ movements across the world have turned out to be short-sighted, with a focus on achieving ‘negative peace’ of merely preventing large scale violence rather than propagating for long term ‘positive peace’ of achieving peace through ‘human justice’. The irony of peacemaking industry is it has only thrived because of the conflicts and wars, which not only gives them a platform to scream for peace but also fills their coffers with huge monetary grants to act as a ‘safety valve’ of the victims.
The hypocrisy of these ‘celebrity-peaceniks’ like Priyanka Chopra is not unknown in the age of social media. Priyanka Chopra was part of a huge controversy for being a part of an American TV show which had demonized Hindus with ‘Hindu terror’ bogey.
Netizens had also exposed Priyanka Chopra over her “double standards” on burning of crackers. Priyanka had urged people to not burst crackers on Diwali claiming that it could lead to ‘Asthma’ by emotionally stating that she had diagnosed with asthma at the age of five. However, netizens had asked what happened to her asthma and concern for the environment and animals when she lit fireworks to celebrate her own wedding with Nick.
