The situation at India-China border in Ladakh is very tense as the two countries are at war. Recently, India lost 20 braveheart soldiers who martyred while fighting with the army of the neighbouring country. Many celebrities took to social media to pay their tributes to the soldiers. TV actor Karanvir Bohra too did the same, and even uninstalled TikTok and announced it on Instagram. While all praised his move, some even slammed him for 'showing off patriotism' on social media.
On Instagram, Karanvir Bohra wrote, "I know I can’t do much sitting in my house, but pray a send blessings. My heart goes out to the jawans and their families who gave up their life in the #ChinaIndiaFaceoff 20soldiers martyred @the LAC. First thing first.... I’m done with @indiatiktok I’m pressing #deletetiktok.” He received various kinds of response on this with a few even slamming him. A netizen wrote, "Badi jaldi Akal aa gyi tiktok uninstall krne ki... abi ruk jate or 100-200 soldiers ko marne dete..!! (So you finally had the brainwave to uninstall the Chinese app... why, you could have waited for 100-200 soldiers to die)."
Later, Karanvir took to Twitter to clarify himself and say that he didn't do it to feel 'patriotic'. "Just to put the record straight, I'm not uninstalling @TikTok_IN "to feel patriotic" as some might say.... But sometimes you do things coz it's the right thing to do," he wrote. Check out his posts below:
