Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut received Padma Shri award recently. Now, Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chief Swati Maliwal wrote to President Ram Nath Kovind urging him to withdraw Kangana’s Padma Shri.
In the letter by DCW Chief, it was written that, “She [Kangana Ranaut] habitually spews venom against people of her own country and has repeatedly used vile language to attack those she does not agree with.”
“The actor’s statement reflect her hatred for our great freedom fighters like Mahatma Gandhi, Bhagat Singh and countless others who laid down their lives for the nation. We all know that our nation got its independence from the British rule through ultimate sacrifices and martyrdom of our great freedom fighters. Ms Ranaut’s statements have hurt the sentiments of millions of Indians and are seditious in nature,” the letter read.
In the letter it was mentioned that, “The revolt of 1857, the Champaran Satyagrah, the Khilafat movement, the Quit India movement, the Dandi march, the non cooperation movement and countless other protests and the sacrifices of millions of Indians who participated in the same have been demeaned and belittled by Ms. Ranaut through her insensitive and thoughtless lies.”
DCW chief questioned, “How can we forget the thousands who had assembled in the Jallianwala Bagh to protest the British rule and the massacre that followed? Are these chapters in our history a ‘bheekh’?”
Swati Maliwal took to her Twitter and lashed out at Kangana for her controversial comments. Here is the tweet made by Swati.
कंगना रनाउत ऐसी महिला है जिसे गांधी भगत सिंह की शहादत मज़ाक़ लगती है और लाखों लोगों की त्याग तपस्या से हासिल आज़ादी भीख लगती है! इसको पुरस्कार की नही इलाज की ज़रूरत है!
मैंने राष्ट्रपति को पत्र लिखा है कि तुरंत रनाउत का पद्म श्री वापिस लेके उसपे राष्ट्रद्रोह की FIR होनी चाहिए! pic.twitter.com/GqlwwUSpfK
