For decades, the Bollywood was acting like seculars and liberals when the nation needed them the most. But now the wait is over as the new age celebrities have understood the pulse of the nation and are expressing their honest views for the nation’s good. But few tag these views as hyper nationalism.
When the stone-pelters were given a taste of their own medicine with pellet-guns, we Indians saw a huge gang of politicians, seculars, liberals, activists ganging-up and crying out on the top of their voice demanding the withdrawal of the pellet guns. But now when that stone-pelter (potential terrorist) turned into a terrorist and killed our own men, the sympathizers of stone-pelters remained tight lipped.
And those few celebrities who spoke, exhibited their hypocrisy by urging for dialogues and not war with beggar terror nation Pakistan, for example Priyanka Chopra, the lady who gets Asthama during Deepawali. Slamming such opportunists, Kangana Ranaut has made some bold statements that most of the actors who enter the Rs 200 crore Club fear to make.
Recently Javed Akhtar and Shabana Azmi had scheduled to attend Karachi for an event. Targeting it, Kangana Ranaut said “People like Shabana Azmi calling for halt on cultural exchange — they are the ones who promote Bharat Tere Tukde Honge gangs… why did they organise an event in Karachi in the first place when Pakistani artistes have been banned after Uri attacks? And now they are trying to save face? The film industry is full of such anti-nationals who boost enemies’ morals in many ways, but right now is the time to focus on decisive actions… Pakistan ban is not the focus, Pakistan destruction is”.
Fuming her anger on the people who want talks with Pakistan, Kangana said that such people should be painted black, put on a donkey and slapped by everyone on the streets. Yes, she said “Pakistan has not only violated our nation’s security they have also attacked our dignity by openly threatening and humiliating us. We need to take decisive actions or else our silence will be misunderstood for our cowardice… Bharat is bleeding today, the killing of our sons is like a dagger in our gut; anyone who lectures about non-violence and peace at this time should be painted black, put on a donkey and slapped by everyone on the streets”.
