Bollywood veteran Anupam Kher has irked many by sharing his stance on recent tension in Indian Occupied Kashmir.

While many Pakistani celebs criticised the ongoing brutality, Kher shared how it was the ‘solution’ for Kashmir. Taking to Twitter, he shared, “Kashmir solution has begun.”

Soon after his tweet, many lashed out at the actor for instigating hate speech.

Kher’s tweet, can be seen as a historical reference to the Nazi ‘Final Solution’, which led to the Holocaust and the systematic genocide of Europe’s Jews.

Authorities in Indian-occupied Kashmir (IoK) placed large parts of the region under lockdown early on Monday while India sent in tens of thousands of additional troops and traded accusations of clashes with Pakistan along the Line of Control (LoC).

Communications were cut, with private mobile networks, internet services and telephone landlines made inaccessible too.

Other Indian celebs also weighed in on the tensions.
