Here’s How Pakistani Celebs Are Spreading Peace (Unlike Their Indian Counterparts)

There is nothing uglier than war, and Pakistani celebrities understand it.

While most Indian artists are calling for all-out war, Pakistani celebrities are advocating peace.

After the alleged airstrike by Indian Air Force in Balakot, Twitter has lit up like a firestorm. This arena was not the kind of lit that you’d want though.

While Bollywood was baying for conflict, surgical strikes, hate-mongering and warmongering in equal measure, Pakistani celebs kept a cool head.

Pakistani responses were a whole range of thought-provoking. Fatima Bhutto, often known for being the voice of reason and advocate for peace, started it all.

The keyboard warriors from Bollywood did not get enough after the Pulwama attack. Even then Pakistani artists only offered condolences, condemned terrorism and called for peace not war.

Many followed suit with not just calling for peace but condemning war.

Armeena Khan is in a schooling roll. She even called out Priyanka Chopra for jumping the warmongering bandwagon….not UN goodwill ambassador-like at all.

Just remember folks this is not a competition. There is collateral damage, and there are casualties of war on the ‘winner’s side’ too.

Some Celebrities Called for a Response… But Only When All Else Fails

Artists like Faisal Qureshi warned that a desire for peace is not weakness. It’s more about being the better person.

Other public figures also swooped in to second Faisal Qureshi.

Good point but retaliate diplomatically right? Like they said in Straight Outta Compton, ‘we hit back with lawsuits and drain them’.

Calling out all keyboard warriors.

For a country that calls itself the world’s largest democracy, teaching the virtues of tolerance to Indian celebrities need not be this hard. If not, they can always ask their Pakistani counterparts.
