Writer Fatima Bhutto expressed her disappointment with the Bollywood actress celebrating the inauguration of the temple, a place where the ancient and historic Babri Masjid was demolished and ransacked.

 

Fatima Bhutto expressed her disdain for Bollywood, referring to it as a craven industry. She criticized Bollywood stars for dressing up to celebrate the demolition of the Babri Masjid and taking selfies in support of the divisive politics of the BJP. Bhutto found this behavior sickening and shared her thoughts on the matter on the microblogging platform.

“Bollywood is a craven industry. To see its stars dolled up to celebrate the destruction of the Babri Masjid and clicking selfies to cheer the hateful politics of the BJP is sickening,” she said in a tweet.

The Prime Minister of India has fulfilled a commitment from his election campaign by inaugurating a Hindu temple constructed on the location where a centuries-old mosque was demolished by far-right groups in 1992.

The inauguration of the temple has received mixed responses on social media. Some celebrated it marking as a significant step in solidifying Hindu nationalism in India while others called it the death of secularism in India.
