Woh azaadi nahi thi, woh bheek thi. Aur jo azaadi mili hai woh 2014 mai mili hai (That wasn’t freedom, those were alms. We got real freedom in 2014.)” 

This is what Bollywood actor and right-winged activist Kangana Ranaut said while speaking at the annual summit of a national media network. 

The recent remark of Kangana Ranaut has not gone down well with many in India, including BJP MP Varun Gandhi criticising her statement. 

Reacting to Kangana Ranaut’s statement, BJP MP Varun Gandhi exclaimed that whether he should call this idea “madness or treason”.

“Sometimes an insult to the sacrifice and penance of Mahatma Gandhi, something showing respect to his killer and now this disdain for the sacrifices of millions of freedom fighters starting from Mangal Pandey to Rani Laxmibai, Bhagat Singh, Chandrashekhar Azad, Netaji and more. Should I call this thought process madness or treason,” Varun Gandhi said.
