Referring to Bollywood actor Naseeruddin Shah’s remark on Bulandshahr statement, on Sunday, Union Minister Prakash Javadekar said that India is the most secure country and added that “if anyone feels insecure here then it reflects their insecure mentality.”
Mr. Javadekar told the source that “If anyone feels insecure in the most secure country then it reflects their insecure mentality. The truth is people of this country irrespective of their caste or religion have the freedom to express their views. Therefore, I believe such an accusation is not appropriate.”
Mr. Shah’s recent remark on Bulandshahr violence incidents, “At many places, the death of a cow is being given more importance than the killing of a policeman. I feel anxious for my children because tomorrow if a mob surrounds them and asks, ‘Are you a Hindu or a Muslim’ they will have no answer. It worries me that I don’t see the situation improving anytime soon,” which he found in a video was circulated on social media.
However, the popular Bollywood actor clarified the remark said that “I have made the statement as a worried Indian and I have previously made similar remarks. I don’t know for what reason I am being branded as a traitor.”
On December 3, a Superintendent of Police Subodh Kumar Singh and a civilian, named Sumit were shot dead after violence that broke out in Uttar Pradesh Bulandshahr area over the rumor of cow slaughter.
