Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan remembered the martyrs of Pulwama and their sacrifice on the day of love. Amitabh reminded fans that while love must be celebrated everyday, tributes must be paid to Pulwama martyrs on February 14 that marks one year of the terrorist attack.

Amitabh wrote on social media, “Suna ja raha hai aaj hai Valentine Day. Pyar mohabbat jatate hain foolon se aur dilon se. Dil Mohabbat ki baatein to honi chahiye pratidin. Ek hi din banaya kyu gaya hai ye hai to abhinn. Par soche zara saal bhar pehle hua jo. Isi din shaheed hue Pulwama mein veer jo Shraddha se natmastak hote hain aaj hum, fool barsaate hain unpar aaj hum (I hear it is Valentine’s Day today. People express their love with flowers and straight from their hearts. But love must be talked about everyday. Why to restrict it to just one day? But also think about those martyrs who sacrificed their lives in Pulwaa. We salute them and shower flowers on them today).”

 

 

He also shared another post with his pictures from the time when he met families of Pulwama martyrs. “On this day we remember those who sacrificed their lives so we could live,” he tweeted.
