Kangana Ranaut Twitter Suspended: If death demands dignity and clicking pictures of a crematorium is a punishable offence -where do we draw the line on sharing pictures on social media? People, who share a huge following – do they have a responsibility about what they share and how they share it? If so, is Kangana Ranaut mindful of that?
This morning the actor shared a horrid picture, even the details of which in words can run a chill down your spine. The caption read, “Gang raped BJP worker by TMC goons, Indira Gandhi imposed emergency 39 times, and she told international media that India does not care what you think get lost, this gawar blood thirsty dehati nation does not know the language of love Modi ji, they need danda”.
This is the aftermath of a hotly contested state election, a woman leader emerging victorious for the third time, even after getting pushed to the wall. Violence has now ensued the state killing people in both camps and as usual, Twitter remains a battleground where preaching is easier than practising.
In a country engulfed by the pandemic where thousands are dying every day, some unable to get medical aid, post-poll violence taking away lives is the last thing we need. It is more human lives lost, irrespective of political affiliation.
As far as international media is concerned, currently it is the relief material sent on humanitarian grounds from countries across the world that is try to pull the medical system of our country back on its feet.
At a time like this, Ranaut continues her social media tirade belittling rescue and relief efforts by making statements after statements.
Dear Kangana, for your “…gawar blood thirsty dehati nation…” – it is an adage that when you point one figure at someone three fingers point at you. So you or I cannot change the system unless we agree that we are part of it. You cannot be part of the solution by considering yourself outside the system.
As for the poor woman who lost her life, give her some dignity in death.
