Every Indian has stood in support of the Indian army's recent Surgical Strike on Pakistan. Today DGMO Lt Gen Ranbir Singh in a statement to the pres said,“ Significant casualties have been caused to terrorists and those trying to shield them. We don’t have a plan to further conduct such strikes. India has spoken to Pakistan." Bollywood stars who have so far not spoken about the ban on Pakistani talent in the industry are hailing this newest update.
Post the Uri attacks there was furor and Raj Thackeray's Maharashtra Navnirman Sena demanded that all Pakistani artists be banned. MNS even threatened Karan Johar and demanded that his film Ae Dil Hai Mushkil featuring Fawad Khan should not release in India. The party even took on stars like Sushant Singh Rajput and Varun Dhawan who expressed their opinions about ban not being a solution to terrorism. Now with Indian Army declaring that they conducted a surgical strike on the LOC, celebrities are queuing up on Twitter to hail it.
Here's what Akshay Kumar, John Abraham, Varun Dhawan and Riteish Deshmukh have to say...
Even cricketers took to Twitter to support this move by the Indian armed forces...
Clearly, the Uri attacks will not be forgotten or forgiven. John Abraham and Sonakshi Sinha who were promoting their upcoming film Force 2
also reacted to this news. John said, "We are very proud. We had to do this earlier. I think it is high time we respond to terrorism. As a country we are tolerant. But I think it is high time we put our foot down and show what India can do." Sonakshi Sinha who was present at the event added, "Thank you for the surgical attacks. This is the need of the hour and we are happy to see it happening." And the Force 2
producer Vipul Shah said, "It’s a proud moment for everyone because our armed forces have retaliated."

The surgical strikes are the first major military action taken by Indian armed forces after terrorists from Pakistan crossed into an army camp in Uri in Kashmir earlier this month. 18 soldiers were killed in the attack. Prime Minister Narendra Modi had pledged that these attacks would not go 'unpunished'.
