Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar Tweet Amid Lakshadweep-Maldives Row:

Recently, Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited Lakshadweep and enjoyed snorkelling. He shared pictures from his trip and seen walking along the beaches. Modi  termed his trip as ‘Moments of pure bliss’. However, a minister from Maldives claimed that India is shifting focus from Maldives by PM promoting Lakshadweep. Also, he mentioned India is facing significant challenges to compete with them. This statement soon sparked a heated controversy between two countries, resulting in many Indians cancelling their trips to Maldives.

Now, Bollywood celebs starting with Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar have appealed to people to explore Indian Islands.

Salman Khan About Lakshadweep Islands:

Salman Khan took to his X platform and wrote “It is so cool to see our Hon PM Narendrabhai Modi at the beautiful clean n stunning beaches of Lakshadweep, and the best part is that yeh hamare India mein hain.”

Shraddha Kapoor Is Mesmerized With Beauty Of Lakshadweep:

Shraddha Kapoor tweeted “All these images and memes making me super FOMO now 😍 Lakshadweep has such pristine beaches and coastlines, thriving local culture, I’m on the verge of booking an impulse chhutti ❤️ This year, why not #ExploreIndianIslands”.

Akshay Kumar responds to the racist comments by Maldives politician

Akshay Kumar replied to the Maldives’ prominent politician’s tweet against Indians. He wrote “Came across comments from prominent public figures from Maldives passing hateful and racist comments on Indians. Surprised that they are doing this to a country that sends them the maximum number of tourists. We are good to our neighbors but why should we tolerate such unprovoked hate? I’ve visited the Maldives many times and always praised it, but dignity first. Let us decide to #ExploreIndianIslands and support our own tourism.”

John Abraham Promotes Domestic Tourism

John Abraham wrote “With the amazing Indian hospitality, the idea of “Atithi Devo Bhava” and a vast marine life to explore. Lakshadweep is the place to go. #exploreindianislands”.

Kangana Ranaut Slammed Maldives politician’s racist remarks

Kangana Ranaut too joined them to voice out her opinion about the ongoing controversy. She tweeted “Smell?? Permanent smell?? What!!! Suffering from massive Muslim phobia, even though belonging to the same community. Lakshadweep consists of 98 percent of Muslim population, this prominent public figure from Maldives calling them smelly and lowly is rather racist and uninformed. 

Mr Zahid, Lakshadweep’s entire population is hardly 60 thousands people, which means it’s almost untouched, unexplored and unexploited natural island.For most people tourism is not just filthy luxury, it is rather exploration of nature, alignment with the source and above all experiencing and enjoying the raw, untouched beauty of virgin beaches. 

Shame on you for being so crass and vulgarly racist.”

Lakshadweep is a union territory of India located at 200 to 440 km off the Malabar Coast of India. Its total surface area is 32 sq km with a population around 64 thousand only.
