Mumbai: Celebrities like Amitabh Bachchan, Lata Mangeshkar and Rajinikanth have condemned the terror attack on the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) troopers in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama district.
Rajinikanth expressed his anger over the attack, in which 49 troopers were killed, saying enough is enough.
“I strongly condemn the unpardonable violence of the terrorists at Pulwama in Kashmir enough is enough! Time has come to put an end to all these barbaric acts.
“My heart goes out to the families of the jawans who lost their lives and are injured. To those brave hearts departed… May their souls rest in peace,” he said in a statement.
