Jacqueline Fernandez Urges People To Support Sri Lankans Amid The Ongoing Economic Crisis, Hopes For ‘Situation To End Soon’

April 04, 2022 | by Kinjal Panchal

It is saddening and worrying to hear about what is going on in Sri Lanka right now and what the people are facing. To be living in a country that is experiencing one of the worst economic crises is beyond my imagination. Sri Lankans have taken to the streets to protest against President Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s government and how he has been handling this crisis. The crisis has led to power cuts that have been lasting up to 12 hours and longer and civilians are experiencing shortages of essential commodities as there is a severe shortage of foreign currency that makes the government unable to pay for imports. Bollywood actor Jacqueline Fernandez, who is Sri Lankan in origin, has taken to her Instagram to express worry about her homeland and has urged people to emphathise and support her country’s people.

Jacqueline Fernandez’s lengthy post on Sri Lanka’s crisis

The Kick actor has shared a photo of a couple of hands holding the sword from the Sri Lankan flag and penned a lengthy post on the ongoing crisis. She said, “As a Srilankan, it is heartbreaking to see what my country and countrymen are going through.” Jacqueline Fernandez continued, “I have been flooded with a lot of opinions since this began from around the world. I would say, do not be too quick to pass a judgement and vilify any group based on what is shown.”

Jacqueline Fernandez asked people to not pass judgement and instead support Sri Lankans. “The world and my people do not need another judgement, they need empathy and support. 2-minutes of silent prayer for their strength and well-being will bring you much closer to them than a comment based on a loose grasp of the situation.” Jacqueline concluded by saying, “To my country and countrymen, I am hoping this situation comes to an end soon and through means which are peaceful and for the benefit of the people. Praying for immense strength to those dealing with this. Peace to all!” In the end, she also wrote in Sinhala, “United we stand, divided we fall.”

We, too, hope the situation in Sri Lanka gets better and then residents are liberated from this crisis soon. Our prayers are with you, Sri Lanka.
