Swara Bhasker has reacted to Kangana Ranaut’s slap incident. The newly-elected MP was at the Chandigarh airport en route to Delhi when a CISF personnel slapped her. She was suspended, and the probe is on. Talking about it, Bhasker condemned the violence, but also pointed out the ‘irony’ since she claimed that her ‘Tanu Weds Manu’ co-star herself justifies violence on social media.

In an interview with Connect Cine, Swara Bhasker addressed the incident and said, “Anybody who is a reasonable person will say that whatever happened with Kangana was wrong. There is nobody who will justify the violence or an act of assault which Kangana suffered. So yes, what happened with her was wrong and shouldn’t have happened. It is not right to assault anyone. What people were telling Kangana’s right-wing supporters was that they shouldn’t be speaking up about this, because they are those who justify lynching.”

She continued, “Kangana just got slapped–and even that should not have happened–but at least she is alive, and has her security around. In this country, people have lost their lives, they’ve been lynched to death, shot dead on a train by security personnel, in riots,

security personnel have been recorded beating up people. Jo log ye saare acts ko justify kar rahe hai, woh phir aake Kangana ke case pe hume mat sikhao (The people who justify these acts should not teach us about Kangana’s case).”

She also pointed out that Kangana Rananut has often justified violence on social media. “The problem with the Kangana case is that she herself has used her platform to justify violence. Her past tweets resurfaced, including the one for which she was banned from Twitter, where she has almost called for a genocide... Then she had also justified Will Smit slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars, saying that if her mother or sister was abused, she would have also slapped someone,” she explained.

“So now what do you say? What happened to her wasn’t right, and the one who did that has already been suspended and punished. So there, justice has been served, but those who have been killed in the last ten years in the country, the perpetrators are roaming free,” she added.

Earlier, Kangana Ranaut had slammed Bollywood for their silence on the incident. She soon deleted the story from Instagram. Karan Johar had also reacted to the incident.
