Celina Jaitley: “I am the 4th generation in a family dedicated to the armed forces… my family has given blood to our nation I speak from my heart. While this sensible gesture of Mr Imran Khan is truly appreciated, also expected certainly is a genuine commitment to hunt down all militant group heads for the benefit of both sides. We owe an immense debt of gratitude to the soldiers that have paid the ultimate price for this cause,as well as for those who are blessed enough to return from the battlefield unscathed, they alone must suffer & bear the deepest wounds & scars of war. Downing a F16 with a 30 year old aircraft , ejecting, getting lynched, and keeping his calm and dignity despite all that goes to say a lot for all who stand for us and the sacrifice their families make. Abhinandan brought us all together as Indians, we have to remember to be that and not turn into Hindu, Muslim, Dalit, Christian or Kashmiri. Our forces sacrifice demand that we stand behind them as “one” .”
