Bollywood couple Javed Akhtar and Shabana Azmi have refused to attend the two-day long event in Karachi, Pakistan in the wake of the harrowing terror attack that took place in Pulwama, Jammu and Kashmir on Thursday. They were supposed to attend an arts event in Pakistan organised by Karachi Arts Council. The couple has decided to turn down the invitation as a sign of protest against the act of terrorism carried out by Pakistan-based terror outfit Jaish-e-Mohammed.
Many Bollywood celebrities condemned the attack and even slammed Pakistan for harboring the terrorist groups. PM Narendra Modi also warned the terror group responsible for the attack and vowed to avenge the death of 37 slain soldiers.
On the other hand, India has also revoked Most Favoured Nation status given to Pakistan to isolate the nation on the international platform.
CRPF has also pledged to avenge the death of the personnel who were killed in the suicide bombing attack. They said, “WE WILL NOT FORGET, WE WILL NOT FORGIVE: We salute our martyrs of Pulwama attack and stand with the families of our martyr brothers. This heinous attack will be avenged.”
