Pulwama Attack: Indian ace tennis star Sania Mirza took to Twitter to condemn the Pulwama attack on the CRPF jawans, but got trolled instead. Sania was getting hate messages on social space once the incident took place on February 14. This is not the first time, Sania has faced the ire of fans. In the past as well, the Indian tennis stalwart has found herself on the wrong side with fans on social handles. Sania Mirza is married to Pakistan cricketer Shoaib Malik. However, this time Sania with her latest post has tried to hit back the trolls, but that has backfired as Indians seem to be in an unforgivable mood after the ghastly terror strikes in Jammu and Kashmir.
Sania Mirza Post:
“This post is for those peeople who think that as celebrities we need to ‘condemn’ an attack, tweet and Instagram and be all over social media to prove that we are patriotic and care about our country.. why?? Cause we are celebs and some of you are frustrated individuals who have no where else to target your anger towards and grab every opportunity to spread more hate?? Mirza said in a lengthy post on Twitter.
“I don’t need to condemn an attack publicly, or come and scream from rooftops or all over social media that we are against terrorism.. of course we are against terrorism and anyone that spreads it.. any person in their right frame of mind is against terrorism and if they are not then that’s a problem!!
“I play for my country, sweat for it and that’s how I serve my country. I stand with the CRPF jawaans and their families, my heart goes out to them and they are our true heroes who protect our country.. 14th February was a black day for India and I hope we never have to see another day like this, no amount of condolences can make any of this better.. this day will not be forgotten and neither shall it be forgiven but YES I will stay pray for peace and you should too instead of spreading more hate,” Mirza added.
Here is how this post did not go down well with Indians and they hit back:
In what is being termed as the deadliest terrorist strike in three decades in Jammu and Kashmir, an explosive-laden SUV rammed into one of the buses in the CRPF convoy.
