Armeena Rana Khan in a series of tweets advocated peace and called out Bollywood actors for their “hypocrisy”. “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?” she wrote.

Indian military aircraft violated the LoC  on Tuesday as they “intruded” from the Muzaffarabad sector and were forced to return owing to the timely response of the Pakistan Air Force.

The NSC had rejected Indian claims of targeting an alleged terrorist camp near Balakot and said that Pakistan will decide the time and place of response to the aggression.

Director General Inter-Services Public Relations (DG ISPR) Major General Asif Ghafoor on Tuesday also warned India that it was time to “wait for our surprise”.
