Considering that Vicky has closely experienced the life of the Indian army officers, the actor asserted that Pulwama attacks should not be an incident that should be neither forgotten nor forgiven.
In recent media reports, the actor spoke about the incident when he was quizzed about his reaction to it, wherein he called it as a great loss of human lives. While he extended his support to the families who have lost their kith and kin in their attacks, those of the martyred CRPF officers, he also asserted the need for a major action that needs to be taken as a response to the Pulwama attacks.
Immediately after the news of Pulwama Attacks spread like wild fire on February 14, Vicky had even taken to Twitter to express his condolences saying, “Deeply saddened and shocked to hear the news of the terror attack in #Pulwama . My heart goes out to the families of the brave CRPF soldiers we lost today and praying for the speedy recovery of those injured.”
