Bollywood diva’s Priyanka Chopra and Jacqueline Fernandez along with retired Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar condemned the recent bombing in Sri Lanka describing it as “extremely sad” on social media.
On Easter, a series of blasts took place in Sri Lanka, eight devastating bomb blasts ripped through high-end hotels and churches holding Easter services, killing 290 people, including dozens of foreigners. The apparently coordinated attacks were the deadliest to hit the country in the decade since the end of a bloody civil war that killed up to 100,000 people and evoked painful memories for many Sri Lankans.
Priyanka Chopra took to her social media profile and wrote, “Heartbreaking scenes from #Srilanka. A day of celebration turned into one of tremendous loss. My prayers and thoughts go out to everyone affected by these horrific attacks”
Jacqueline, whose father is Sri Lankan and mother Malaysian, tweeted: “Extremely sad at the news of bombings in Sri Lanka. It’s unfortunate that one is not able to see that violence is like a chain reaction. This has to stop.”
Even Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar, couldn’t hold himself and condemned such a violent act. He wrote, “Saddened to hear about the terror attacks in various parts of Sri Lanka. Strongly condemn these acts of terror. Hatred and violence will never overpower love, kindness and compassion. #SriLanka”
