What Happened When Om Puri Went To Martyred Jawan’s Home Asking For Forgivness

Veteran actor Om Puri, who was under fire for making derogatory remarks against Indian soldiers, visited the house of martyred BSF soldier Nitin Yadav in Nagla Bari village in Etawah, on Tuesday.

The veteran actor, on the occasion of his 66th birthday , said he had come “for repentance, and not forgiveness”.

He met Yadav’s family and paid floral tribute to the martyr.

Puri looked at the soldier’s photograph for several minutes and cried inconsolably uttering the word ‘maafi’ (forgiveness).
My comments are beyond forgiveness. Had I uttered those words in any other country I would have been executed. I seek forgiveness and request you to accept me as a part of your family – the actor said to the soldier’s family.

In a recent live televised debate on the Indian Motion Pictures Producers’ Association slapping an indefinite ban on Pakistani artistes, barring them from working in Indian projects, the veteran actor had defended art and ended up insulting the country’s martyrs.
In a shocking response, when pressed on what he thought of the ban in the aftermath of the killing of 19 Indian soldiers in the terror attack at Uri in J&K on September 18, Om Puri lost his cool and said: “Who had asked the soldiers to join the army? Who told them to pick the weapons?”
Under fire for his insensitive comments, the Bollywood actor arrived at martyr Nitin’s house at around 1 pm on Tuesday and met his parents, including father Balbeer Singh and mother Usha Devi. Nitin Singh Yadav (24) had laid down his life fighting heavily armed terrorists in Baramulla in J&K on October 2.
Apologising for his harsh comments on the soldiers killed during the Uri attack, Om Puri admitted that his comments were in no way justifiable. The actor said that he decided to visit the families of the martyrs and personally apologise for his statements.

I just have one thing to say on this matter – Better late than never !
