Explaining the reason why she is against war, she told The Times of India that every death in the battlefield ultimately leaves numerous in the soldiers’ families devastated.
She has been trolled on various websites and social media platforms and shamed up for being ‘cowardly and self-centred’.
Right now, I am not in a position to watch social media sites. But I still stand by what I said about war. People have their opinion; it is the individual’s freedom of speech. I am no different.
Twitter also joined ranks with her to fend off the trolls and lauded her for the pacifist stance.
Having said that, many notable media personalities from the Indian side have been pushing the war rhetoric and making statements like “with us or against us” on live television causing lot of anger and instability among the masses.
It’s sad to see the prevalence of war mongering from the Indian side. The widow of the martyred Indian soldier is already enduring an ordeal, it is unfortunate that she has had to face such severe and nonsensical criticism.
