#Airstrike: Veena Malik Slammed For Gross Insensitive Tweet About Captured Pilot
Stars like Swara Bhasker and TV actress Saumya Tandon gave Veena a lesson in civility and humanism
Tempers have been rising across the borders of India and Pakistan after the February 14 attack in Pulwama on a CRPF convoy, killing 40 soldiers. In retaliation, Indian Air Force (IAF) struck terrorist training camps across the Line of Control (LOC). Pakistan then hit back, bringing down two jets and capturing one Indian pilot on their soil.
The captured pilot, Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman was shown being attacked by some locals before Pakistani army personnel rescued him. Another video did the rounds where the pilot was seen talking about how the Pakistani army treated him with respect and dignity after he was caught.
In an already tense and fragile atmosphere, this incident is being talked about the most on social media with several celebrities also appealing to the Pakistan government to release him. In a parallel development many peace-loving citizens on both sides of the border are also trying to trend #saynotowar, hoping for peace to prevail.
Unfortunately, former Bigg Boss contestant and rabble rouser Veena Malik does not seem to have got the memo. In a series of insensitive and gross tweets, the actress made fun of Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman. She wrote: "Abhi Abhi Tu Ayo Ho...Achi Mehmaan Nawazi Ho GI Aap Ki."
Needless to say, Twitterati was furious and Bhabhiji Ghar Pe hain Actress Saumya Tandon and the voluble Swara Bhasker were among those who took the lead in slamming Veena for her remakers.
Saumya wrote: ‘Can’t imagine someone like him tweeting like this. Sad really sad.
She further added, “We are against terrorism, against #PulwanaAttack , what are these so many haters on social media for, what is their agenda. So much hatred, disturbing, repulsive, heartbreaking. Fight is against terrorism not civilians of any country. Hope better sense with prevail."

Swara Bhasker too schooled Veena. “Veena ji.. Shame on you & ur sick mindset. Your glee is just gross! Our officer is a hero- brave, gracious & dignified in the face of capture. At least some decency from that major in you army who was questioning #WingCommanderAbhinandan or the many Pakistanis suing 4 peace #sick.
Hope Veena has learnt a lesson!
