Kangana Ranaut will be given Y-category security as she visits Mumbai
Bengaluru: Actress Kangana Ranaut, who was targeted by the Shiva Sena for her bold statements in relation to her being shamed publicly, will get Y-category security as she visits Mumbai.
It’s the Union home ministry that has taken a decision in this regard.
The Y-category entails 11 security personnel including commandoes.
The actress thanked the Union home ministry for the kind gesture.
“This is a testimony to the fact that no nationalist voice can be suppressed by any fascist. I am grateful to Amit Shah ji. If he wanted, then he would have instead advised me to fly to Mumbai on a later date. But, he had the grace to protect the daughter of India and safeguard her pride and respect. Jai Hind,” she said.
It is to be noted Kangana will be visiting Mumbai on September 9.
Kangana Ranaut had minced no words in comparing the attitude of Mumbai police and politicians to Pakistan Occupied Kashmir as an alleged screenshot of Mumbai police liking a tweet exhorting people to shame Kangana for her stance on Bollywood went viral.
As her comparison became viral, Shiva Sena leader Sanjay Raut asked her not to visit Mumbai. To this, she replied that Mumbai had turned into Taliban from Pakistan Occupied Kashmir in one day.
In fact, such was the animosity displayed by Sanjay Raut that he termed her “haram Khor”.
Even the home minister Anil Deshmukh had openly said that charges will be pressed against her for defaming Mumbai. The mayor of Mumbai too had not spoken kindly about her.
But Kangana had replied with a lot of courage: “Your people are threatening to kill me. Yes, go ahead. Because the soil of this country is watered by such blood, so many people have lost their lives for the dignity of this country. We will also sacrifice our lives because we have to pay our debt. So let’s meet on 9th September. Jai Hind. Jai Maharashtra.”
