Pakistan demands Priyanka Chopra’s removal as UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, here’s why
Following India’s airstrike at Pakistan’s terror camp in Balakot on February 26, several Bollywood celebrities congratulated and lauded the Indian Armed Forces. Now Priyanka Chopra, who was made as the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) Goodwill Ambassador in 2016, also took to Twitter and appreciated the Indian Army as she wrote: “Jai Hindi #IndianArmedForces.”
Priyanka’s comment on Twitter did no go down well with Pakistani netizens and they started an online petition seeking her removal as the UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, reported The News International. It is to be noted that Priyanka’s parents Dr Ashok Chopra and Dr Madhu Chopra were both doctors in the Indian Army.

The petition argues that the ‘Quantico’ actor extended her support to India despite being the UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador.
“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 petition stated.
Twelve days after the terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama, Indian Army conducted an airstrike on Jaise-e-Mohammed Mohammed (JeM) training centre in Balakot. India claimed to have eliminated dozens of terrorists in the attack.
Now it has what the actress has to say about this petition.
