After the Indian Air Force's strike on the terror camps of Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) on February 26, the who's who of India from politics and business to cinema took to social media to laud the air force's mission. According to reports, at least 350 terrorists were killed after a group of Mirage 2000 Indian Fighter jets struck a major terrorist camp across the LoC and completely destroyed it.
As mentioned in agency reports, hundreds of Fidayeen and their trainers were shifted from Pakistan Occupied Kashmir to a five-star, resort style camp in a hilltop forest in Balakot after the Pulwama attack, providing Indian forces with "a sitting duck target" when they carried out an air strike early on Tuesday. The report further mentioned that everyone at the camp was sleeping and that the Pakistani defence establishment had no clue that the attack would take place so farther inside the LoC. They expected a surgical strike in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (POK).
As politicians across parties took to compliment the Indian Air Force's attack on the JeM camps, the Indian film industry too came together to applaud the air force's work. From Kamal Haasan and Sonakshi Sinha to Mahesh Babu and Swara Bhasker, actors from across the country took to Twitter to congratulate the air force.
