Mallika Dua, the stand-up comedian always stays in the limelight for her controversial statements. She is again on people’s target for her remarks on Pulwama attack martyrs. In her video, she shared on Facebook, she can be heard saying,
“These people who are saying that ‘humare log shaheed ho gaye, aap apne life normally kaise jee rahe ho (our people have been martyred, how can you live your life normally)’… people are saying this to each other; not just to me, it’s all over social media. There is a group of people who are violently in protest of the fact that people are showing their lives the way they are.”
“Now my point is, every day there are people who die of hunger, bhukmari, berozgaari, depression… there are so many reasons why people die; not just in India, but all over the world. You keep going about your life like you do, right? Are those lives any less important? Or are we being insensitive? Do we not care because we are posting things on social media? What is this logic? Yeh kya nonsense chal rahi hai ki poora desh ro raha hai aur tum has rahi ho?”
Along with the video, Mallika wrote, “To all the nakli nationalists and keyboard patriots, you don’t get to decide who’s Indian and who’s not. Especially those of you hell bent on destroying the secular fabric of this country really need to shut your mouths before giving others unsolicited Gyaan on being Indian. Tum hum se zyaada hindustaani nahin aur hum tumse kam Hindustaani nahi. It’s very convenient to be a keyboard warrior when it’s someone else shedding blood on your behalf.”
For her remarks she started getting trolled. Her remarks are absoluetly absurd and now she is suffering a backlash.
