Two weeks after the deadly terrorist attack in Pulwama in Kashmir, Indian Air Force’s fighter jets crossed the Line of Control to destroy major terrorist camps near Balakot with bombs on February 26.
The airstrikes were in retaliation to the dastardly attack by a JeM suicide bomber on a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) convoy in the Pulwama district of Jammu and Kashmir earlier this month, which claimed the lives of at least 40 soldiers.
Paresh Rawal takes a dig at Ali Zafar
Amid all this, veteran actor Paresh Rawal took a dig at Pakistani singer and actor Ali Zafar on the latter’s silence over the IAF operations. Rawal reacted to Zafar’s old tweet where he had praised the Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan’s speech.
Zafar applauded Pakistan PM Imran Khan with a ‘What a speech!’ for stating that the nation would retaliate if India attacked it, actor and MP Paresh Rawal took a jab at the actor.
Now, as India took revenge on February 26, Paresh Rawal took a jibe at the actor and wrote, “Now speechless!!!”

The airstrikes, which are being touted as ‘Surgical Strike 2.0’ took place on February 26 around 3:30 am using 12 Mirage 2,000 fighter jets. The aircraft dropped 1,000 kg laser-guided bombs on a major terror camp across the Line of Control, completely destroying it.
Ali Zafar has worked in several Bollywood films like ‘Mere Brother Ki Dulhan’, ‘Chashme Baddoor’ and ”London, Paris, New York’. He last appeared in Gauri Shinde’s 2016 film ‘Dear Zindagi’.
