He joined the list of actors expressing solidarity and saluting the 17 ‘heroes’ who lost their lives in the militant attack in Jammu and Kashmir’s Uri last month. “Saluting the real heroes of our country, our Armed forces; for whom we owe a lot. Jai Jawan! & glad to have a PM who is so strong willed!” Mohan Babu posted.
In one of the worst casualties suffered by the Indian Army in recent times, a fidayeen attack left at least 17 soldiers dead at the rear base of an infantry regiment in Uri on September 18. The early morning attack was carried out by four terrorists, all of whom were neutralised.
Other people from the film fraternity including Rana Daggubati, Allari Naresh and Bollywood stars Shah Ruk Khan, Amitabh Bachchan and Sonakshi Sinha have shared grief condemning the attack. Some actors even appreciated India’s counter surgical strikes that took place in Pakistan.
“Proud of the Indian Army and our government on taking solid anti-terrorism measures in safeguarding our nation! JaiHind!!” Rana had tweeted.
Comedy actor Allari Naresh also condoled for the deaths of the soldiers. “17 martyrs. Each was somebody’s everybody. My heart goes out to their families. Is it really that difficult for peace to prevail? #UriAttack,” he said.
