Kangana Ranaut slams Shabana Azmi, calls her ‘Anti-National’


Following the heartbreaking terror attack in Pulwama which killed 40 CRPF jawans, Shabana Azmi and Javed Akhtar had cancelled a two-day literary event on her father Kaifi Azmi in Karachi, Pakistan.

Outspoken Kangana Ranaut lashes out at Azmi for organizing cultutal events in Pakistan, calling her ‘anti-national’ Kangana said, “People like Shabana Azmi calling for halt on cultural exchange -- they are the ones who promote Bharat Tere Tukde Honge gangs... why did they organise 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."

When Shabana Azmi was asked to give her reaction on Kangana Ranaut’s statement against her, she 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.”

Meanwhile, Kangana too has cancelled the success bash of 'Manikarnika' in solidarity with the jawans. She had said, "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."
