As a Hindu, I am ashamed : Swara Bhasker, Actress

Expressed anger on the slogan of ‘Jai Shri Ram’ raised by the crowd in front of people offering namaz

Editorial comments

  • Swara Bhaskar has not uttered a word of protest about how Hindus have been attacked in the last few days in Bangladesh. Rather, it should not be a surprise if Hindus feel ashamed of Swara Bhasker being a Hindu.
  • Why Swara Bhaskar becomes mute against the religious fanatics who forcibly cause the closure of Aarti in Hindu temples ?
  • Why do the likes of Swara Bhaskar shut their mouths about those who harass society by offering Namaz illegally in public places and on the streets ?

New Delhi – In a strange incident that occurred in Gurugram on Friday, a crowd started chanting ‘Jai Shri Ram’ while some Muslims were illegally offering namaz at a site. The incident was recorded in a video that went viral. Tweeting about the incident, actress Swara Bhaskar said, “As a Hindu I’m ashamed”.

(Hindus should boycott the films of such anti-Hindu actresses and thereby display Hindu unity – Editor) Following this tweet, she was heavily criticised on social media. ‘We are ashamed that you are a Hindu’, ‘Why don’t you leave Hindu Dharma?’, said the critics.
