Sushant Singh Rajput Removes ‘Rajput’ From His Twitter Account To Protest Against The Attack On Sanjay Leela Bhansali, And The Twitter Battle Has Just Begin
It is 2017, and it is still questionable if we are progressing towards an accepting society or a regressive one which finds violence to communicate. When the fundamental rights of the country were written for a democratic India, I am not sure if those who toiled day and night to form it realised that the people will resort to violence even when they are given right to speak or question. Museums are vandalised and artists are beaten up. Few days after the country celebrated Republic Day, Sanjay Leela Bhansali was beaten up and pulled by his hair because, apparently, he distorted the history.
The shooting of his movie ‘Padmavati’ has been halted and the team retreated to Mumbai. The whole country is in shock to find the widespread hooliganism prevalent in one of the states hailed for its historicity and tourism. What message do we send out? Is it merely the script that provoked such volatile behaviour or the legacy of a caste that didn’t move down the throats of the Karni Sena. Actor Sushant Singh Rajput has found out a way to rebel against the whole affair in his own way.
The M.S. Dhoni actor has removed ‘Rajput’ from his surname to send out a message. Check out his tweet:
The fanatics refuse to take the backseat, and there were people who disapproved of his step.
Interestingly, Sushant’s retort was enough to shut the regressive mouths further.
The country who calls Mahatma Gandhi the father of India, who lifestyle professed non-violence, cannot justify the relevance of their arguments by propagating fear. We admire Sushant Singh for showing the alternate way to protest and be heard.
