Kangana Ranaut wants action against Vir Das’s monologue about India, terms it soft terrorism

Earlier this week, comedian-actor Vir Das shared a video of his monologue on his YouTube channel, which was a part of his recent performance at the John F Kennedy Centre in Washington DC. In the Six min long video, Das can be seen talking about some topics with respect to India in a controversial manner. “I come from an India where we worship women during the day and gang rape them at night,” he said at one point.

After her freedom controversy, actress Kangana Ranaut has taken a dig against comedian-actor Vir Das. Calling him a criminal for his monologue about India that he shared on his YouTube channel, Kangana said such kind of creative work is ‘soft terrorism’ and strict action should be taken against him.

The video is getting criticized by a lot of public figures and one of those is Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut. Slamming the video, in her post, Kangana wrote, “When you generalize all Indian men as gang rapists it gives rise and encouragement to racism and bullying against Indians all over the world… After the Bengal famine, Churchill famously said, ‘These Indians breed like rabbits they are bound to die like this…’ He blamed Indians’ sex drive/fertility for the death of millions because of hunger… Such creative work targeting an entire race is soft terrorism… Strict actions must be taken against such criminals @virdas."

After being trolled and facing backlash, Vir shared a clarification on the same in a Twitter post on Tuesday. He said, “The video is a satire about the duality of two very separate Indias that do different things. Like any nation has light and dark, good and evil within it. None of this is a secret. The video appeals for us to never forget that we are great. To never stop focusing on what makes us great.”

However, Kangana herself is busy tackling a controversy caused by her comment on Indian’s freedom. In an interview, she said the freedom of India that we got in 1947 was bheekh. She has also said that she will return her Padma Shri if she is proved wrong.
