Priyanka Chopra's tweet miffs Pakistan; a petition filed seeking her removal as UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador

In December 2016, Priyanka Chopra was made the UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador. However, recently, an online petition has started against the actress in Pakistan to remove her as the UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador. As reported by The News International, the petition is signed against the actress as she congratulated the Indian Armed Force for the surgical strike that was conducted on Pakistan by India on February 26, 2019.

The surgical strike was conducted by India against Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM), a terror training camp in Pakistan. It was a retaliation to the Pulwama terrorist attack on February 14 which cost the lives of more than 40 CRPF jawans. After the surgical strike, PeeCee took to her Twitter page and tweeted, "Jai Hind #IndianArmedForces". The petition mentions that despite being the UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Chopra cheered for war and hence, they want her to be removed. They have tagged the UN and the UNICEF in their online petition.

The petition published on the website called Avaaz.org reads, "War between two nuclear powers can only lead to destruction & death. As goodwill ambassador of UNICEF, Priyanka Chopra was supposed to stay neutral & peaceful but her tweet in favour of Indian arm forces after they invaded Pakistan airspace shows otherwise. She doesn’t deserve this title anymore."

Jai Hind #IndianArmedForces
