In a major terrorist attack, more than 40 CRPF (Central Reserve Police Force) jawans were killed on a CRPF convoy in Awantipora in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama district yesterday (February 14, 2019). Many were injured in the attack with a few of them being in a critical condition. Bollywood and television celebrities took to social media to express their anger over the dastardly attack. The Punjab cabinet minister, Navjot Singh Sidhu, who is also a member of The Kapil Sharma Show condemned the attack.
As per PTI report, Navjot Singh Sidhu said, "For a handful of people, can you blame the entire nation and can you blame an individual?" He further said, "It (the attack) is a cowardly act and I condemn it firmly. Violence is always condemnable and those who did it must be punished."
