A video of Bollywood actress Swara Bhasker has gone viral on social media which shows her making an impassioned speech and talking about a range of issues.
“The fears which we had have come true. The police kill unarmed Muslims and destroy their properties. People who take oath to abide by the Constitution are actually maiming it,” she said.
She then went on to slam the Supreme Court over the Ayodhya case verdict that allows for the construction of a Ram Temple at the place of demolished Babri mosque. During her speech, she also used cuss words and asserted that the time to be polite is over.
This is the inflammatory speech by @ReallySwara that instigated the violence in Delhi! She has made many tweets telling people to hit the streets and create mayhem. @DelhiPolice when are you going to take action against this woman?! pic.twitter.com/qVWr04WjSP— 🔸DIXSA🔸 (@AxiJ5) February 26, 2020
She was speaking at an event on February 1, 2020.
A number of users have shared the clip and accused her of provoking Muslims and allegedly exhorting them to take law in their hands. Many people believe that if Kapil Mishra, a Bharatiya Janata Party, can be accused of instigating violence in Delhi, then Swara too must be treated in similar vein.
Riots, raging through Delhi for the last three days, have led to 24 people losing their lives.
