The actor condemned the terror attack and urged the nation to come together to support the families of the martyred soldiers
Mumbai: Actor Vicky Kaushal, who played the role of an Army officer in Uri: The Surgical Strike, on Saturday said the terror attack on a CRPF convoy in south Kashmir's Pulwama district should not be forgotten and forgiven.
Though he said it is necessary to give an answer to the Pulwama attack he did say that people should not jump to dole out advice on what should be done. He said, "I feel I am a less knowledgeable person... It is easy to say do this, do that and this should happen or that should happen, there are repercussions also that happen. I think our government will be thinking of the best move, they would be discussing these things and we should leave it to them. This should not be forgotten and should not be forgiven."
The actor spoke about the incident while attending Cine and TV Artistes' Association (CINTAA) and 48 Hour Project's first edition of Act Fest 2019. He also lauded actor Amitabh Bachchan's decision to donate Rs five lakh each to the families of the martyrs.
"I think in any way, be it financially or emotionally, if we can support their families as a nation it is a good thing. We all should come ahead," he said.
Actor Manoj Bajpayee also echoed the same sentiments while speaking at the event. He said that the citizens of the country should have faith in them (government) and support them in such trying circumstances, "Words will fall short to express our anger for this kind of heinous act. My prayers are the families of soldiers who have lost their dear ones in the tragedy and it's their irreparable loss, " he added.
