Kangana Ranaut on the death of the Kashmiri Pandit
There have been burning issues around the world, and Bollywood actors have been speaking up on issues. But, there has been a huge debate on whether or not, Bollywood celebs speak up enough about certain issues and whether they're saying the right things. Moreover, are they speaking up for the right causes?
Kangana Ranaut recently bashed celebs for not speaking up about certain issues at home, their selective activism and for showing hypocrisy in the case #BlackLivesMatter. Now, the actress chose to speak up on issue she felt strongly about— the killing of Kashmira Pandit, Ajay Pandit in the Kashmir valley.
The actress took to Instagram to post a passionate video on the killing holding up a placard, "Celebrities who call themselves intellectuals are often seen holding up cards like this, with candles, petrol bombs, step onto the streets to burn the nation..."
Apart from bashing celebrities, she demanded justice for the Kashmiri Pandit, and said that we need to stop teaching secularism to Hindus who have always been secular and peace-loving. She also said that the government should give back the land they own to Kashmiri Pandits, and send them home to their land in Kashmir.
Now, many on the internet are impressed by the actress' candour and are happy she spoke up on an issue, that many celebrities have avoided touching upon.
