Navjot Singh Sidhu had to face the anger of Indian people for his diplomatic views on Pulwama attack, with people even urging others to boycott ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’ and ‘Sony Tv’. Although Sidhu condemned the Pulwama terror attack in which 45 CRPF soldiers were killed, he also said that the dialogue with Pakistan should continue.
“Wherever wars are fought and such things (Pulwama type attack) happen, dialogue also continues simultaneously. There is a need to find a permanent solution to (issues between India and Pakistan). His comments, however, did not go well with some people who called to stop watching show Comedy Nights with Kapil, where he is appears along with comedian Kapil Sharma. Some people also demanded that Sony Tv should drop Sidhu from the show, otherwise they will stop watching Sony Tv. They also urged others to unsubscribe Sony TV channel. Have a look at the tweets below.
Sidhu mentioned that the whole country of Pakistan cannot be blamed for the terror attack. “This (attack) should be condemned by all. For a handful people, you cannot blame an entire nation. Those behind the attack must be punished,” Sidhu said. “Such people (terrorists) have no religion, no country and no caste. When a snake bites, its anti-dote is also snake poison,” Sidhu said, justifying his take on the matter regarding dialogue between the two nuclear neighbours.
