Pakistani stars tweet against Indian aggression


While abolishment of articles 370 and 35-A of the Indian Constitution, thus revoking the special status granted to Indian-held Kashmir, by Modi’s government is being hailed as a massive success by BJP supporters and conservatives, including Indian celebrities, Pakistani stars took to their social networking sites to speak out in favour of Kashmiri people.

The move to revoke Kashmir’s special status as an autonomous state followed a massive troop buildup, cluster bomb attacks on Muslim residential areas, cutting off communication services, banning public movement and shutting down educational institutes in a curfew that has been imposed for an indefinite period. Most of the prominent leaders of the Kashmir freedom movement are already under detention for months now, remaining pro-Pakistan figures were also put under house arrest.

Pakistani cyberspace flooded with messages of solidarity with the Kashmiri people and voices of protest against Indian aggression and blatant violation of human rights. Celebrities including Hamza Ali Abbasi, Mawra Hocane, Mahira Khan, Feroze Khan, Osman Khalid Butt and many others joined in to speak up against injustice.
