Bollywood celebs including Akshay Kumar, Shekhar Kapur and cricketers spoke out against the Monday evening terrorist attack on the Amarnath pilgrims and called it a cowardly act.
At least seven pilgrims were killed and several wounded when suspected militants attacked police vehicles escorting Amarnath yatris at two different places in Anantnag district of Kashmir on Monday. One of the attacks took place at Botengoo in Anantnag.
Terrorist attack on the pilgrims of #AmaranthYatra is most shameful & cowardly act. Security forces should wipe out these terrorists.

Again a terrorist attack. On innocent pilgrims that wanted nothing but blessings of Lord Shiva. Time for action. Not words #AmarnathYatra

ISI supported Kashmiri jihadis are not freedom fighters, but religious terrorists targeting Hindus, must be condemned. #AmarnathYatra
