Navjot Singh Sidhu said that dialogue between India and Pakistan should continue even after the Pulwama terror attack by Pakistan-backed Jaish-e-Mohammed
New Delhi: Following the Pulwama massacre, which claimed at least 40 CRPF jawans’ lives, netizens took to Twitter to demand the removal of Punjab cabinet minister Navjot Singh Sidhu from The Kapil Sharma Show, hosted by stand-up comedian Kapil Sharma.
Sidhu faced backslash after he said that dialogue between India and Pakistan should continue, even after Pakistan-backed Jaish-e-Mohammed’s suicide bomber attacked a convoy of 78 vehicles on Thursday.
In 2018, Sidhu attended the oath-taking ceremony of Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan and hugged him and Pakistan Army general Qamar Javed Bajwa.
Here is how the Twitterati reacted

The Pulwama attack is being considered the worst terror attack since the Uri attack in 2016.
Over 2500 personnel of the Central Reserve Police Force were travelling in a convoy of 78 vehicles. Most of them were returning to duty after spending their holidays in their respective destinations. The convoy was attacked on the Jammu-Kashmir highway at around 3:30 pm by a Jaish-e-Mohammed suicide bomber.
