Controversy is increasing continuously over the statement given by Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut, who was recently awarded the Padma Shri award, regarding the country’s independence. Meanwhile, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) spokesperson and Maharashtra government minister Nawab Malik also targeted Kangana. Along with this, he said that the Center should take back the Padma Shri from her and arrest her.
Reacting to Kangana Ranaut’s freedom statement, Malik said, “We strongly condemn actress Kangana Ranaut’s statement that India got freedom in 2014. She insulted freedom fighters. The Centre must take back the Padma Shri from Kangana and arrest her.”
Nawab Malik further said, “Looks like Kangana Ranaut took a heavy dose of Malana Cream (a particular variety of hashish which grows specifically in Himachal Pradesh) before making such a statement.”
Let us tell you that before this, many leaders have criticized Kangana Ranaut. Varun Gandhi, “Sometimes an insult to Mahatma Gandhi’s sacrifice and penance, sometimes respect to his [Mahatma Gandhi’s] killer, and now an insult to the sacrifices of lakhs of freedom fighters — from Shaheed Mangal Pandey to Rani Laxmibai, Bhagat Singh, Chandrashekhar Azad, Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose and more. Should I call this madness or treason?”
It is worth noting that Kangana Ranaut, while giving a controversial statement at the Times Now Summit, had said that the freedom the country got in 1947 was alms and the true freedom was got in 2014. The video of this statement of Kangana is becoming very viral on social media. In this statement, Kangana was referring to the BJP government.
This absurd statement of Kangana is causing anger among the countrymen against the actress and they are demanding strict action against her. At the same time, many people are also demanding to take back Padma Shri from Kangana.
