It’s a matter of grief for the country; Niharica Raizada on Pulwama terror attack
Actress Niharica Raizada, who next will be seen in ‘Total Dhamaal’, has condemned Thursday’s terror attack on a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) convoy in Jammu and Kashmir by saying that it’s a matter of grief for the country that 200kgs of explosives have in one shot killed our CRPF troopers.
Forty-nine CRPF personnel were killed Thursday in one of the deadliest attacks in Jammu and Kashmir when a Jaish-e-Mohammed suicide bomber rammed a vehicle carrying over 100 kg of explosives into their bus in Pulwama district.
Reacting to Pulwama terror attack incident, Niharica said, “It is a matter of grief for the country that 200kg of explosives have in one shot killed our CRPF troopers. My head bows in sorrow and in pride for those courageous men who by no fault of theirs have lost their precious lives.”
Niharica said that Indian government should attack terrorist outfits instead of attacking Pakistani citizens, she said, “However, to condemn a whole nation, albeit we do not have the friendliest of relationship between India and Pakistan, we must attack the terrorists not a country. We must attack the attackers not a nation. There are many types of people in a nation so, we cannot speak bad about everyone in one breath.”
She added, “We must think, and strategically operate, first by strengthening our country’s security and then by responding to the attackers.
Actor-producer Ajay Devgn on Monday announced that his forthcoming film “Total Dhamaal” will not release in Pakistan. The decision comes after the Pulwama terror attack that claimed the lives of 49 CRPF troopers last week.
Reacting to the decision of makers of ‘Total Dhamaal’, Niharica said, “It’s really nice gesture that the makers of the Total Dhamaal film have shown respect to their Jawaans by not releasing their film in Pakistan. We salute their bravery and we send love and condolences to their families.”
‘Total Dhamaal’ is directed and co-produced by Indra Kumar. It is the sequel to 2011 film Double Dhamaal and the third installment of the ‘Dhamaal’ film series.
It is releasing on 22nd February, 2019.
