Bhabhi Ji Ghar Par Hain’s Saumya Tandon has slammed former Bigg Boss Pakistani contestant Veena Malik for her tweet against Wing Commander Abhinandan of the Indian Air Force. This was after Veena, who had tried to make a career in Bollywood unsuccessfully, tweeted implying that the captured Indian officer should be ill-treated by her country’s army.
Posting a blindfolded and bloodied photo of Wing Commander Abhinandan, Veena had written, “Abhi Abhi Tu Ayo Ho…Achi Mehmaan Nawazi Ho GI Aap Ki.”

This evoked angry reactions from Indians including celebrities from the entertainment industry, who slammed the Pakistani model for her distasteful social media post. Leading the pack was Saumya Tandon from Bhabhi Ji Ghar Par Hain. Lashing out at Veena, Saumya wrote, “Can’t imagine someone like him tweeting like this. Sad really sad.” Her subsequent tweet read, “Yes it’s her not him, but doesn’t change the disgust this tweet is spreading.”

Saumya, who was recently hailed as a hero for refusing to sell her soul for money, also wrote that she was against terrorism. She said, “We are against terrorism, against #PulwanaAttack , what are these so many haters on social media for, what is their agenda. So much hatred, disturbing, repulsive, heartbreaking. Fight is against terrorism not civilians of any country. Hope better sense with prevail.”
Eslewhere, Bollywood actor Swara Bhasker too slammed Veena for her tweet. She wrote, “Veena ji.. Shame on you & ur sick mindset. Your glee is just gross! Our officer is a hero- brave, gracious & dignified in the face of capture. At least some decency from that major in you army who was questioning #WingCommanderAbhinandan or the many Pakistanis suing 4 peace #sick.”
Pakistan has decided to release the captured Indian Air Force officer as a good will gesture for peace with India. Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan made the announcement in a joint session of parliament in Islamabad on Thursday.
