Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor has courted controversy because of her lagtest Instagram post, which said that the ‘average Indian has more in common with the average Pakistani than he does with a Hindu fundamentalist.’

Her Insta story, posted amidst tension between India and Pakistan, read, “The average Indian has more in common with the average Pakistani than he does with a Hindu fundamentalist who wants to bomb in the name of Ram and lynch minorities and rally in support of child rapists.”

It further read, “The average Pakistani has more in common with an average Indian than he does with an Islamic fundamentalist who wants to bomb others in the name of Allah and oppress women and put guns in the hands of children.”

Her post said that ‘ordinary citizens everywhere just want to have a normal life and go to work and raise their children well and save up for a decent home.’

The post concluded, “Hindu and Islamic fundamentalists both have loads in common. Their minds are poisoned by hate and they both lack empathy for the other side. They both want war and do not care for its consequences. The cost of this extraordinary hatred of fundamentalists in both countries is eventually going to be paid by the ordinary citizens of both countries and the soldiers who are always first in line of a fire they did not ignite.”

No sooner had she updated her Insta story on Wednesday, Hindutva trolls began to target her with accusing her of plagiarism.

On Wednesday, Pakistan had catured an Indian Air Force officer, Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman after the Pakistani military claimed it had downed his MiG 21 plane that he was flying.

Pakistani channels were quick to broadcast his disturbing video with the Indian officer being blindfolded and his hands tied behind the back.
