The popular actress took to Twitter to express how devastated she was by the news in an emotional tweet, asking, “Have we conveniently blocked what we don’t want to address?”

“This is beyond lines drawn on sand, it’s about innocent lives being lost!” she continued. “Heaven is burning and we silently weep. #Istandwithkashmir #kashmirbleeds.”

Khan’s comments inspired a deluge of backlash, with many Indian Twitter users criticizing her “diplomatic tweet,” and calling her out for “poking her dirty nose” in Indian matters. Others slammed her acting career, suggesting she was just bitter that her Bollywood career wasn’t going as well as she would like, and questioned why she hadn’t bothered to comment on other issues.
