Richa Chadha is facing a lot of backlash for seemingly mocking the Indian Army.
The actress posted a tweet in reaction to a statement made by Northern Army Command, Lieutenant General Upendra Dwivedi.
He commented on Defence Minister Rajnath Singh’s remarks on taking back Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK).
He said: “As far as the Indian Army is concerned, it will carry out any order given by the Government of India.
“Whenever such orders are given, we will always be ready for it.
“The military is always ready to make sure that ceasefire understanding is never broken as it is in the interest of both nations, but if broken at any time, we will give them a befitting reply.”
In reaction to the statement, Richa Chadha wrote: “Galwan says hi.”
Her tweet did not go down well on social media, with many accusing her of mocking the Indian Army and belittling the sacrifice of the jawans in the 2020 Galwan clash between India and China.
BJP leader Manjinder Singh Sirsa tweeted:
“Disgraceful Tweet. Should be withdrawn at the earliest. Insulting our armed forces is not justified.
