    Indian actress Sonam Kapoor has become the latest celebrity to come in the line of fire for advocating peace with Pakistan. Internet trolls are leaving no stone unturned to question her nationality and even her acting skills.

    Even as the India-Pakistan hostility showed some signs of calming, with Islamabad announcing its willingness to free the captured Indian fighter pilot, passions continued to boil over on the internet, with Indians ruthlessly trolling an actress for advocating peace with Pakistan. 

    Sonam Kapoor, the daughter of famous Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor, shared a post promoting the idea that Hindu and Islamic fundamentalists have a lot in common and that the ordinary citizens of both India and Pakistan should oppose any potential armed conflict between the two nations.

    The actress recently shared a post by the Facebook parody page 'Humans of Hindutva' on her Instagram story. The message said that average Indians and Pakistanis had a lot in common with each other but it was Hindu and Islamic fundamentalists who were responsible for the war.

    Trollers not only vented their wrath on Sonam for showing compassion to the enemy but also took the opportunity to question her success as an actress. 

    ​Some suggested she should move to Pakistan, slamming her as "anti-national".

    ​Some said the actress has no pride in her country. 

    ​Nevertheless, there were also some who tried to make sense of what Kapoor said.
