As the insecurity of Muslim lives perk at Shaheen Bagh in Delhi, after another gunman entered and blindly shot at the protestors, mainly women, who have been sitting in peaceful dissent against CAA-NRC, Bollywood diva Sonam Kapoor called out the act of terrorism. Expressing her concern at the rising hatred and incidents of intolerance, Sonam dissed “divisive politics.”
Taking to her social media handles, Sonam shared a news article briefing about the attack and penned a message for followers to get a grip on the Hindu religion. It read, “This is something that I never imagined would happen in India. Stop this divisive dangerous politics. It fuels HATE. If you believe yourself to be a Hindu then understand that the religion is about Karma and dharma and this is not either of those. (sic)”
A 25-year-old man, who identified himself as Kapil Gujjar, fired two rounds in Shaheen Bagh triggering panic on Saturday evening. The man was later taken into custody while he was still shouting proudly, “Humare desh mein aur kisi ki nahi chalegi, sirf Hinduon ki chalegi (No one else can dictate the rules in our country except Hindus!).” No one was injured but in the wake of the Shaheen Bagh incident, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal urged the Union Home Minister Amit Shah to improve the law and order situation of the national capital. Taking note of the incident, Amit Shah also tweeted that he had spoken to Delhi Police Commissioner Amulya Patnaik and directed him to take strict action in connection with the incident.
Meanwhile, on the professional front, Sonam was last seen in Abhishek Sharma’s rom-com, The Zoya Factor, which also starred Dulquer Salmaan. From Sonam’s glamorous chic avatars to Dulquer’s tough looks and six-pack abs, the fans were served the sweet fruit of their anticipation ever since the trailer was dropped. Dulquer’s mind-blowing performance as Indian cricket team captain, Nikhil Khoda, left everyone stunned. Many of his fans went crazy in the scene where he pulls off his t-shirt and flaunts his sexy six-pack abs while wiping his face off sweat.
The film was based on novelist Anuja Chauhan’s book of the same name and the movie is bankrolled by Fox Star Studios.
