Amid soaring tension between Pakistan and India, a few Pakistani celebrities and public figures have been reacting the crisis with remarkable restraint.

Echoing the sentiments of Prime Minister Imran Khan, who advocated for a peaceful resolution to the conflict in his latest address, celebrities within the country have been calling for common sense to prevail.

Actress Armeena Khan used the popular hashtag 'saynotowar' to call for a peace:

She also called out those actors across the border who were stirring up nationalistic fervour and promoting violence.

Singer Hadiqa Kiani highlighted the futility of war:

Zaid Ali T took a jab at those who are cheering for conflict:

As always, Osman Khalid Butt knows what's up.

Sajal Aly thinks war should be off the table forever

Fatima Bhutto kept it short and effective:

Rabia Butt seems to have got the memo too

Fahad Mustafa is firmly in the anti war camp:

As is Mawra Hocane:

These Pakistani celebrities are on the right side of the narrative about war - let's hope it stays that way!

Show strength of character through generosity. Retun the wounded pilot after the best medical treatment as a gesture of peace-making.
