The whole country is furious after the horrifying ter’ror att’ack on a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) convoy in Jammu & Kashmir’s Pulwama on Thursday (14th February). The attack took the lives of 40 CRPF jawans.
After this attack, Indian Tennis star Sania Mirza is gets trolled on social media. Mirza, who is married to Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik, is trolled and targetted every time the relation between India and Pakistan takes a hit. This time Mirza had hit back at the hatred.
Sania took to Twitter to write a heartfelt note for the martyred CRPF soldiers.
Sania Mirza trolled on social media
“This post is for those people who think that as celebrities we need to ‘condemn’ an attack, tweet and Instagram and be all over social media to prove that we are patriotic and care about our country.. why?? Cause we are celebs and some of you are frustrated individuals who have no where else to target your anger towards and grab every opportunity to spread more hate??” Sania wrote in her Twitter post.
Reminding the trolls that she didn’t have to “condemn attacks publicly” to prove that she was “against terrorism”, Sania wrote, “I don’t need to condemn an attack publicly, or come and scream from roof tops or all over social media that we are against terrorism. Of course we are against terrorism and anyone that spreads it. Any person in their right frame of mind is against terrorism and if they are not then that’s a problem!”

“I play for my country, sweat for it and that’s how I serve my country. I stand with the CRPF jawaans and their families, my heart goes out to them and they are our true heroes who protect our country.. 14th February was a black day for India and I hope we never have to see another day like this, no amount of condolences can make any of this better.. this day will not be forgotten and neither shall it be forgiven but YES I will stay pray for peace and you should too instead of spreading more hate,” she added.
“Anger is good as long as it’s being channeled into something productive. You are achieving nothing by trolling other people. There was no place for terrorism in this world and there never will be. Find you way to serve the nation instead of sitting and swearing and judging public figures for how many posts they have posted about the tragedy! Do your bit and we are doing out bit without announcing on social media! Yes that’s a thing too. Prayers and peace,” Sania concluded her post.
