Bollywood actor Annu Kapoor has called for a violence against Kashmiris living across India in the aftermath of the Pulwama terror attack. Kapoor said that the violence against Kashmiri Muslims was justified since the local population in Jammu and Kashmir had forced Hindus to flee the state in the past.
“Now what’s happening with Kashmiri children here, so our Kashmiri Pandits were given the similar treatment. Our Kashmiri Pandits also suffered. So they (Kashmiri Muslims) will have to suffer. It takes two hands to clap,” Kapoor told ABP channel.
Listen to veteran actor Anu Kapoor. He goes on to justify Kashmiris being attacked all over India & says it’s tit for tat.

What a shameful bigot. These morons don’t know that no outsider can purchase land in other states too, like Uttarakhand, Himachal, Manipur, Mizoram, ArunachalPradesh, Nagaland and other states in North East (exception Assam). But the focus is Kashmir. Intention change demography! https://t.co/KaOAUuvX88

Right-wing brigade have targeted Kashmiri Muslims across India in the aftermath of the Pulwama terror attack that killed 45 CRPF jawans. Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday had urged them to not target Kashmiris since ‘Our fight is for Kashmir and not against Kashmir, not against Kashmiris.’
