Kangana Ranaut condemns violence during CAA protest: Strikes against government was cool only during pre-independence era

New Delhi: While actors Huma Qureshi, Farhan Akhtar, and Swara Bhaskar 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 Asian News International.

Slamming people for vandalising public property during protests, Ranaut said, "In our population, only three to four percent people pay taxes. The 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 24 January, 2020.
