Saheefa Jabbar Khattak slams silence on Gaza in Bollywood

With the global impact these celebrities possess, their raising voice for the cause can significantly help get the message globally.

Pakistani actress Saheefa Jabbar Khattak slams Bollywood for the brazen silence on the atrocities in Gaza and Palestine.

Taking to her Instagram story, she slammed the leading actors of the Indian film industry for their silence on the issue. With the global impact these celebrities possess, their raising voice for the cause can significantly help get the message globally.

“What are we doing about Bollywood? Our neighboring country, where we are eager to work, and where we speak so highly of them in our interviews, NONE of them have spoken against the ongoing genocide,” Khattak highlighted in an Instagram story.

She added that Pakistani celebrities and social media users should stop wishing Bollywood celebrities on their birthdays. The actress reminded that the Indian government has already placed a ban on Pakistani actors working in the Indian film industry. Moreover, Pakistani actors are barely offered good roles. Hence, it is time that Pakistani entertainment industry should look after honing their skills and crafts.

“It’s time that we focus on our craft, make better films and dramas, and stop seeking validation from them or anyone.” The actress also urged for boycotting major Israeli products. She added that people can at least boycott five major products if not all.

Israel’s latest aggression on the refugee tents in Rafah has stirred a massive uproar once again globally. People sleeping in tents were burnt alive as Israel dropped bombs. Pakistani celebrities are posting pictures from the latest onslaught on Rafah on social media.

Unfortunately, not many from Bollywood have dared to speak up from Bollywood. Among the only prominent names speaking up on the issue is Sonam Kapoor, who shared news stories on her Instagram story. Others include Swara Bhaskar and Priyanka Chopra who talked about the ongoing Israeli aggression in her posts.
