In a video, Babita was seen saying in Hindi, “I’m feeling very sad since yesterday. I couldn’t muster the courage to speak about it, but I’m still trying, to say a few words in respect of the martyrs. First of all, I pay my homage to the martyrs and offer my prayers to the Almighty to give their souls peace and their families strength and their children hope. Along with that, I want to say that that today the entire country has come together to stand with the soldiers to raise their morale to give terrorists and Pakistan a fitting answer. I urge the Government and also the political parties that they should all come together to boost the confidence of our soldiers so that they can hit back at Pakistan. And the start to that will be through the traitors and the anti-nationals who need to be thoroughly investigated.”
