1 426

T he Hollywood-Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra has sparked hatred everywhere on social media. There are tensions suddenly going on between two major nations of the sub-continent: India and Pakistan. A lot of the public is urging everyone to not support war but rather peace. Some people are pointing out how Priyanka supporting her own nation’s efforts of defense isn’t a diplomatic choice given that she is a UNICEF Goodwill ambassador.

Priyanka Chopra Makes War Mongering Tweet as Indo-Pak War Escalates

The two nuclear armed powers of Asia- India and Pakistan have been tied up in conflict over Kashmir over a long time now. But things seem to be worsening between the two nations as India sent its fighter jets into Pakistan’s airspace. The country retaliated by shooting down Indian fighter jets over the disputed border region. Since Pakistan captured an Indian wing commander and interrogated him, there was a significant escalation in the crisis between the two powers. However, Pakistan has promised the safe return of the Indian commander, hoping for peace negotiations.

Amidst all this, while both armies were busy protecting their own borders, celebrities on either sides as well as other parts of the world have been reacting to the situation. While many campaigned for peace with the #SayNoToWar hashtag, some were supporting their respective countries. Many Indian celebrities including the newly wed Priyanka Chopra propagated for war praising the Indian forces for stepping into the enemy country’s border.

Is Priyanka Chopra Not Fulfilling her Role as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador?

Naturally, praising your country men for fighting the enemy and shielding the nation is something anybody would do. But this seems as if she is unintentionally encouraging war between the two nations. A UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador should always be opting for peace and take a diplomatic stand.

People are seeing Priyanka Chopra supporting her own army’s efforts as war mongering.  People have slammed Priyanka for failing in her UNICEF duties. Twitter was taken over as people demanded UN to take away this right from the actress as she was no longer eligible to talk about human rights at any platform.

Priyanka Chopra has yet to comment on the backlash she is receiving. We will update you on any news we find on the issue.

Priyanka Chopra is an Indian actress and singer who has also now stepped into Hollywood. She recently starred in the Valentines Special Isn’t It Romantic alongside Rebel Wilson. Priyanka recently tied the knot in an elaborate wedding ceremony to American singer Nick Jonas.

Priyanka Chopra also comes from an influential Indian family which has roots in politics. Since her mother Madhu Chopra is a politician, Priyanka’s tweets might make a bit of sense.

    India was not in its ‘defence’ and her comments were supporting her army that violated International law, Article 2(4) of the UN Charter. To transgress the bounds of a sovereign nation is absolutely unacceptable and act of war, between two nuclear powers. I fail to believe a UN ‘Good Will’ ambassador would unintentionally post such a tweet, that supported risking the entire south asian sub-continent into a nuclear war.
