What is the stance of Bollywood Celebrities on Kashmir issue? Did they talk about Article 370? Let’s find out what they shared on Twitter on 5th August when the Indian state made the damning declaration.

Shah Rukh Khan

Shah Rukh tweeted a picture of his wife.

Priyanka Chopra

Priyanka is the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Goodwill Ambassador and has received the Mother Teresa Memorial Award for Social Justice for her contribution towards social causes.

But she had nothing to say about the human rights violations in Kashmir.

It is worth pointing out that she came under fire in February 2019 for cheering for war against Pakistan after Pulwama attack. Many people on Twitter started petitioning for her removal as UNICEF’s ambassador.

Salman Khan

The first tweet Salman Khan sent out after Article 370 was revoked was the teaser of ‘Pal pal dil kay paas’.

Akshay Kumar

Farhan Akhtar

Farhan is a United Nations (UN) Goodwill Ambassador for women rights and is often seen as a loud voice for human rights in India.

However, the director/actor so far has nothing to say about the human rights abuses on the Indian side of Kashmir.

Anil Kapoor

He also posted a pictured of his wife.

Kajol

Kajol shared different tweets but none related to Kashmir.

Ajay Devgan

Ajay Devgan also went on to post the pictures of his wife Kajol.

What’s with these stars sharing pictures of their wives on a day that was so heavy on Kashmiri citizens?

So, basically there has been complete silence from the Bollywood stars on the situation in Kashmir. It looks like they do not have any stance on human rights violations in the disputed territory at all!

Bolo Jawan has started a trend on Twitter with the hashtag #WhereDoYouStandOnKashmir and #Article370 to ask the woke how they view the brewing human rights catastrophe in Kashmir. Join the conversation and let us know your thoughts!
