Dia Mirza blasts BJP leader over his tweet on Kashmiri grandpa’s death

A 60-year-old civilian has died in cross-firing in Sopore, Occupied Kashmir. Some disturbing pictures of this man are becoming viral on social media, in which the grandson of this person can be seen sitting on the dead body of his grandfather.

BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra has also made a controversial comment on this picture, after which a Twitter war between actress Dia Mirza and Sambit Patra was also seen.

The tweet did not sit well with many Twitter users, among which was Bollywood star, Dia Mirza.

"Do you not have an iota of empathy left in you?" she asked.

The politician accused Dia Mirza of being selective and retorted, "Madam, this is the time when you should hold a placard close to your heart reading “I am ashamed because of Pak sponsored Jihad in Kashmir” But you all are selective. You’ll never do that."

However, the Rehna Hai Tere Dil Mein star had a befitting response to Patra's comment. "You haven’t answered my question," she went on.

To which, he shared, "Yes madam, I have empathy, for my forces, for every Indian citizens irrespective of their religion. Unlike you, whose empathy is selective. Remember I am not a selective placard holder."

Dia Mirza retaliated saying that empathy cannot be selective. "Empathy is not selective. We either have it or we don’t. No child should ever have to endure the pain and horror this child has. Stop the politics and you have my support. With or without a placard," she said.
