Known for her controversial statements, Manikarnika’s actress Kangana Ranaut has called for the destruction of Pakistan in the aftermath of the Pulwama attack. She expressed her agitation in response to the question pertaining to the declining of the invitation to attend a literature festival in Pakistan by veteran actress Shabana Azmi and lyricist Javed Akhtar.
While taking a dig at the Shabana Azmi, Kangana stated, “People like Shabana Azmi calling for a halt on the cultural exchange — they are the ones who promote Bharat Tere Tukde Honge gangs… why did they organize an event in Karachi in the first place when Pakistani artistes have been banned after Uri attacks? And now they are trying to save face? The film industry is full of such anti-nationals who boost enemies’ morals in many ways, but right now is the time to focus on decisive actions… Pakistan ban is not the focus, Pakistan destruction is.”
Kangana stated, “Pakistan has not only violated our nation’s security they have also attacked our dignity by openly threatening and humiliating us. We need to take decisive actions or else our silence will be misunderstood for our cowardice… Bharat is bleeding today, the killing of our sons is like a dagger in our gut; anyone who lectures about non-violence and peace at this time should be painted black, put on a donkey and slapped by everyone on the streets.”
Azmi reacting to the Kangana’s statement said, “You really think at a time like this a personal attack on me can be of any significance when the entire country stands as one in our grief and in condemning this dastardly Pulwama attack? May God bless her [Kangana].”
