Actress Kangana Ranaut’s Padma award should be confiscated straight away says Congress

The political party Congress said that the comments are “treason”


Actor Kangana Ranaut’s Padma Shri should be “confiscated straight away”, former Union Minister Anand Sharma said in a snowballing controversy over her comment that India won true freedom in 2014 – when Prime Minister Narendra Modi came in power and that the 1947 independence was “bheek” or charity.

“The Padma Award given to Ms. Ranaut should be cease immediately. Before giving such Awards, mental psychological measurement should be done so that in future people like her do not get the chance to disrespect our nation and its heroes”, said Anand Sharma on Twitter and also tagged President Ram Nath Kovind.

He then called Kangana Ranaut’s comment shameful and shocking, accused her of insulting Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru and Sardar Valabhbhai Patel, besides making fun of the sacrifices of our freedom fighter like Bhagat Singh and Chandrashekhar Azad.

The political party Congress said that the comments are “treason”. Few members of the party said she must apologize to the nation and she must be confiscated from the top civilian honor.

The 34-year-old actor, who was awarded the Padma Shri earlier this week and has awarded other national awards in the past, has always been vocal about her support for the ruling party BJP and has been known to speak out about her political stand without modifying it.

“Insulting the sacrifice of Mahatma Gandhi sometimes, praising his killer (Nathuram Godse) sometimes, and now the disrespecting the sacrifices of Mangal Pandey, Rani Laxmibai, Bhagat Singh, Chandrashekhar Azad, Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose and lakhs of freedom fighters. Should I call this thinking of madness or treason?” – Varun Gandhi tweeted.

Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has asked the Mumbai Police to file a case against the actor. AAP leader Preeti Sharma Menon says what she said is “seditious and inflammatory”.
