Pakistani Military Spokesperson Major General Asif Ghafoor on Wednesday (8 January) praised Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone for visiting Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) campus and showing solidarity with the ‘youth’.
Ghafoor, Director General of Pakistani Inter-Services Personnel Relations (ISPR), took to twitter to praise the bollywood actress.
“Kudos Deepika Padukone for standing both with youth and the truth. You have proved to be a brave person in difficult environment earning respect. Humanity is above everything,” the Pakistani Military spokesperson said in a tweet, which he later deleted.
Earlier on Tuesday (7 January), Deepika had visited the JNU campus, which has been embroiled in chaos and protests for the past three days, to show her solidarity with the students of the varsity after the violence by masked people inside the campus on Sunday (7 January).
She was in Delhi for promotion of her movie Chhapaak, which will release on Friday (10 January), and arrived at Sabarmati T-Point in the university where a public meeting of Left leaning students was being held.
Padukone attended the meeting and stood as former JNUSU president Kanhaiya Kumar gave a speech.
