Nothing uglier. Nothing more ignorant than cheering for war. May sense prevail.. Pakistan zindabad. https://t.co/sH0VGGAERC— Mahira Khan (@TheMahiraKhan) February 26, 2019
Anyone who is encouraging war between Pakistan and India should be taken out of their house and be forced to fight the war themselves. Tweet karna bohat asaan hai, but for once think of the all the soldiers that die unnecessarily because of this. #PakistanZindabad 🇵🇰— Zaid Ali (@Za1d) February 26, 2019
We need peace! We need words! We need to grow and not regress! There is nothing exciting or spectacular about war, we are talking about REAL HUMAN lives 😔🙏🏼— Hadiqa Kiani (@Hadiqa_Kiani) February 26, 2019
“It is easy to advocate peace whilst the sun shines. When the storm rages, it is then your character, principles & values are tested. Will you turn your face into the wind and stand by what is right or will history find you wanting?” - Me #peace #saynotowar ❤️🤘🏻— Armeena 🦋 (@ArmeenaRK) February 26, 2019
Armeena Khan has also quoted Bollywood actor Priyanka Chopra's tweet and slammed her for praising the Indian forces. "WHAT?!!! But aren’t you supposed to be a Good Will ambassador for @UNICEF? Screenshot# this everyone and next time she speaks up for peace and goodwill. Let’s remind her of this hypocrisy," she tweeted.

“There can be NO winners in war if we value Human Life at all.“— MAWRA HOCANE (Hussain) (@MawraHocane) February 26, 2019
It’s time we understand this as humans.The media needs to take charge & stop being provocative. It’s our duty to inculcate peace & use our words for better & not worse.
Praying for peace always!
Actors around the world are boundary less creatures, when indian actors retaliated so absurdly on a false accusation on Pakistan and called in for war,— Shamoon Abbasi official (@shamoonAbbasi) February 26, 2019
