Do you think Pakistani celebrities working in India should have condemned Uri terror attacks??

Jan Ki Baat makes an attempt to deconstruct the reason behind the silence of Pakistani celebrities over the Uri attack. Pakistani celebrities have been known to publicly emote their condemnation of terrorist attacks that occurred in Europe, and even in some Asian nations. However, their silence on the Uri attack has led many to speculate on the justifiability of their silence. The attack has less to do with bordered existences and more to do with the nature of humanity. Disapproval of terrorism isn’t limited to and for European countries, after all. If one can speak about the terror attacks on Paris, then why abstain from extending the same courtesy to terrorist attacks on India, residents or soldiers.

Militants attacked an Indian Army brigade headquarters in Jammu and Kashmir’s Uri on 18th September, killing 17 soldiers in the most deadly such attack in the northern region of Kashmir in recent years. The attack began at 5.30am in the morning and militants breached the perimeter fence to enter the camp. Four militants were confirmed killed a few hours later, according to an army spokesperson. The attack generated a flood of sympathetic messages from across the globe.

Do celebrities have a moral obligation? Or is it a selective one? Or so they simply want to avoid political entrapments?
