Please don't use hashtags, please don't gloat, please don't dehumanise yourself in a bid to dehumanise another.

One of the voices of peace was Mahira Khan, who made a strong statement about warmongering.
Nothing uglier. Nothing more ignorant than cheering for war. May sense prevail.. Pakistan zindabad. https://t.co/sH0VGGAERC

There were many conflicting comments coming up on her tweet. Some called her out for not speaking, or for speaking in such a way that saves her relationship with Bollywood.
Ye bolnei se film nai milei gi

Some of Mahira’s Indian fans did not appreciate her comment.
Where was sense when your country attacked our soldiers?? Does only India have to maintain peace? #JaiHind 🇮🇳

While all this was going on, fellow actor, Shaan Shahid replied to Mahira and we’re just stunned.
There is nothing uglier ,when people don’t cheer for freedom
— Shaan Shahid (@mshaanshahid) February 26, 2019
Of course, given the current climate, a LOT of people sided with Shaan.

He was called ‘brave’.

The common theme of ‘working for Bollywood’ kept coming up.

Pakistan and India have had tense relations since forever, this is nothing new to any of us. This time, what is different is that we, as a nation, are projecting ourselves as a nation that wants peace over all else. Everyone seems to be on board with this line of thinking and it’s best to present a united front. Actors and artists are meant to be people who positively influence the population, and it’s good to see that so many from the film industry are advocating for peace. As for Shaan, well it takes time to things to change, especially when it comes to India-Pakistan relations, so let’s hope he sees the overwhelming positives of not fighting a war.
