Petition filed in Pakistan seeks Priyanka Chopra’s removal as UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador post her patriotic tweet
Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra was announced as the UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador in December 2016. However, in the wake of the on-going tension between India and Pakistan, an online petition has been started against PeeCee in Pakistan. The petition seeks her removal as the UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador. As reported by The News International, several online users have signed the petition after she posted a patriotic tweet, hailing India and the Indian Armed Forces for the surgical strikes which were carried out by India on Pakistan on February 26, 2019.

After the Pulwama terror attack that took place on February 14 resulting in the loss of lives of more than 40 CRPF jawans, India carried out the surgical strike against Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM), a terror training camp in Pakistan, who had taken responsibility for the attack. After the surgical strike, Priyanka took to her Twitter account and posted, “Jai Hind #IndianArmedForces”.

Tagging the UN and the UNICEF, the petitioners have said that Priyanka is advocating war by cheering India and so must be removed from her position. The petition which is published on the website called Avaaz.org reads, “War between two nuclear powers can only lead to destruction & death. As goodwill ambassador of UNICEF, Priyanka Chopra was supposed to stay neutral & peaceful but her tweet in favour of Indian arm forces after they invaded Pakistan airspace shows otherwise. She doesn’t deserve this title anymore.”

The actress has not yet commented on this and there has been no word from UNICEF either.
