Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut, who has been in controversies due to her statements, has now given a controversial statement about Mahatma Gandhi. Making fun of Mahatma Gandhi’s ‘mantra of non-violence’, Kangana said that by putting other cheek forward, you get ‘bheekh’, not freedom. Maharashtra Congress has warned of legal action against her remarks on Mahatma Gandhi.
Actually, Kangana Ranaut targeted Mahatma Gandhi by posting a series of posts on Instagram and said, “choose your heroes wisely.” Kangana has shared a news published in a newspaper whose headline is, “Gandhi, others had agreed to hand over Netaji”. The report claimed that Gandhi, along with Jawaharlal Nehru and Mohammed Ali Jinnah, came to an agreement with a British judge that they would hand Bose over if he were to enter the country.
Ranaut has written with this cutting of the newspaper, “Either you are a Gandhi fan or Nataji supporter You can’t be both… Choose and decide.”
In another post, Ranaut has claimed, “Those who fought for the freedom were ‘handed over’ to their masters by those who had no courage burning/ boiling hot blood to fight their oppressors but they were power hungry and cunning.”
34-year-old Kangana said, “Those are the ones who taught us, “If someone slaps you offer another cheek for one more slap” and that is how you will get Aazadi. That’s not how one gets Aazadi, one can only get bheekh like that. Choose your heros wisely(sic),” Kangana said that it is time for people to know about their history and their heroes.
She added, “… Because just placing them all in one box of your memory and every year wishing them all birth anniversaries is not enough infact it’s not just dumb but highly irresponsible and superficial…”
According to news agency ANI, Maharashtra Congress chief Nana Patole said that Maharashtra Congress will take legal action against actress Kangana Ranaut for her alleged defamatory statement against Mahatma Gandhi. Congress will file an official complaint against him with Mumbai Police.
Let us tell you that the pro-BJP actress was recently awarded the Padma Shri by President Ram Nath Kovind, two days after she gave a statement regarding independence. Ranaut had said last week that India did not get independence in 1947, but ‘begged’, the real freedom came in 2014 when Narendra Modi’s government came to power.
