Swara Bhasker has been vocal throughout the Anti-CAA protest that has been concerning the entire country. The actress who was in Indore recently to address a rally spoke about the partiality by the government and also on how it has granted citizenship to Adnan Sami, who is of the Pakistani descend and also gave him a Padma Shri.
The Anarkali of Arah actress was in Indore to address the ‘Save the Constitution, Save the Country’ rally, according to the reports in New Indian Express said, “A legal process of granting citizenship to refugees and capturing infiltrators is already in place in this country. You (the government) have granted Indian citizenship to Adnan Sami and now selected him for Padma Shri through the prevailing process.”
She added, “On the one hand you abuse us (anti-CAA protesters), cane-charge us, slap us, hurl teargas shells at us and on the other hand you award Padma Shri to a Pakistani. This government calls us members of ‘tukde-tukde’ gang and anti-nationals for just sustaining the existing provisions for citizenship instead of imposing new discriminatory laws.”
She also spoke about how the government has betrayed the constitution that is to be followed. She said, “The problem is they have intruded the minds of the government and the ruling party because the government has fallen in love with Pakistan. It sees Pakistan everywhere. My devout grandmother doesn’t chant Hanuman Chalisa as often as this government keeps chanting Pakistan mantra.”
Swara in her address also took a dig at the BJP minister who recently criticized Bangladeshi inflators just because he saw them eating Poha.
