[Pakistan], Mar 2 (ANI): Actor Priyanka Chopra Jonas has found herself in the  tight spot after she cheered for war in a recent tweet when tensions were running high between India and Pakistan, which has upset her fans in Pakistan.

An online petition started by people in Pakistan tagging the UN and UNICEF, seeks the removal of global icon Priyanka Chopra as UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, reported The News International.

Pertaining to actor’s tweet “Jai Hindi #IndianArmedForces” after the Indian Air Force conducted multiple air strikes in Pakistan’s Balakot, the petition argues that the actor ‘Cheered for war’, despite being the UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador.

Priyanka Chopra was made the UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador in December 2016.

On February 26, twelve days after the Pulwama attack, India had launched an anti-terror strike against a Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) terror training camp in Pakistan’s Balakot, in which a large number of terrorists were killed by the Indian Air Force, according to Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale. (ANI)
