Dia Mirza lashes out at BJP leader for insensitive comment on Kashmir brutality


An elderly Kashmiri was recently gunned downed by Indian forces in the Sopore district of Indian Occupied Kashmir (IoK) in a relentless onslaught against innocent civilians.

The Indian occupation forces and Indian media were quick to blame Kashmiri fighters for the tragic incident. Gory pictures showing a grandfather lying on the ground drenched in blood, while his three-year-old grandson sat atop the body and walking around the Indian police personnel have gone viral on social media.

The 65-year-old has been identified as Bashir Ahmed.

Things were made worse when an Indian political spokesperson took a jibe at the incident in a now-deleted tweet. Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) spokesperson Sambit Patra shared the picture and wrote, “Pultizer lovers?” on it, which did not sit well with many, among whom was Bollywood star Dia Mirza.

“Do you not have an iota of empathy left in you?” she asked.
