Concerned about the normal lives of soldiers in India amid the ongoing tension between India and Pakistan, Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched a campaign wherein people across the country can send their wishes and messages to soldiers for Diwali, who are miles away from home and their families, protecting the people of this nation so we can celebrate the festival in peace.
“I sent my #Sandesh2Soldiers. You could also do the same. Your wishes will certainly make our forces very happy,” he tweeted. The PM also shared a video in which he said we should make our soldiers from the Army, Navy, Air Force, Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), Border Security Force (BSF), feel that we are grateful for what they do for us.
Some people from the film industry were also expected to join the campaign and guess what, Akshay Kumar, Salman Khan, Aamir Khan have already extended their wishes. Akshay, who urged people to think about jawans first and argue later on whether the surgical strikes happened or not, released a video wishing the soldiers a very happy Diwali and thanking them for protecting us. “Aap hain to hum hain. Aap hain to Hindustan hai” he said.
“This is a wonderful gesture. Our PM is absolutely right, the support of 125 Crore Indians for our soldiers will fill them with love. Let us all join him in sending our messages. Love. a.” tweeted Aamir.
Here’s how many others joined in to wish the soldiers.
