Angry reactions after Bollywood actor Annu Kapoor justifies violence against Kashmiris across India


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.

No sooner his comments were shared on social media, prominent social media users and activists began to demand for an action against Kapoor for calling for violence against Kashmiri Muslims.

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.’
