While actors Huma Qureshi, Farhan Akhtar, and Swara Bhasker are taking part in protests against the amended Citizenship Act, actor Kangana Ranaut on Monday condemned these protests and said the people should not instigate violence in the name of democracy.
"It's not correct for the people to instigate violence in the name of democracy.
We are still hung on to the pre-Independence era. During that time, going on strikes against the people, who had captured us, not paying taxes, all of this was really cool. But today, because of democracy, your leaders have come from within you, not from Italy or Japan," the 'Panga' actor told ANI.
Slamming people for vandalising public property during protests, Ranaut said, "In our population, only three to four per cent people pay taxes.
Rest of them are actually dependent on them. So, who gives you the right to burn buses, trains, create ruckus in the country."
"One bus costs a lot. It's not a small amount. And the condition of this country is such that there are so many, who are dying of malnutrition," added Ranaut.
On the work front, the fiery actor will next be seen in sports-drama 'Panga' where she is essaying the role of a Kabaddi player. Helmed by Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, 'Panga' is set to hit the big screens on January 24, 2020.
Delhi's deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia slammed Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut over her comment on anti-CAA protests.
Kangana Ranaut tweeted, "When you protest, the first thing that's imp is that you don't turn violent. In our population, only 3-4% ppl pay tax, others are actually dependent on them. So, who gives you the right to burn buses, trains & to create ruckus in the country?". Replying to Kangana, Manish Sisodia tweeted, "Even daily labourers pay indirect taxes when he buys something cheap like salt. They even pay taxes when they went to watch movies and are responsible for income of actors."
