Recently, actor Naseeruddin Shah made a comment on freedom of speech in India, which has been opposed by many politicians. Now Actor and BJP MP Paresh Rawal on Tuesday expressed his views on the comment of the actor.
Paresh Rawal has shown his disagreement over actor Naseeruddin Shah's recent comment on freedom of speech in India, saying if Shah is expressing his views freely in India it means there is complete freedom of speech in the country. Paresh Rawal told ANI that "I don’t want to react to a particular statement. But it’s not right to say that India is not worth living in. I don’t agree. Incidents keep happening, but it is not right to generalise it,"
Earlier On January 4, the Shah had triggered a row by claiming in a video that those who demand rights are locked away. He also said that artists, actors, scholars and poets are stifled. He further said, Journalists too are being silenced.
The critically acclaimed actor Nasureedin shah also alleged that walls of hate are being constructed in the country and innocent people are being killed in the name of religion. He also said that those who stand against this injustice have their office raided and licence cancelled.
