"We should see Kunal Kamra’s act as an act of resistance." The time for politeness is over, Swara Bhasker thundered at this Mumbai gathering. pic.twitter.com/bW8BYr2HwF— Brut India (@BrutIndia) February 6, 2020
Swara in her four-minutes long speech went on to question Supreme Court's decisions and asked why Muslims are targeted? She also added how we need not be polite when raising our concerns and protesting. The actress claimed the fight is at home and we need to start resisting the ideologies in our family.
"I think that when we talk about resistance, which is really the only way forward, I think we have to find ways to resist at every step, at every single step. I would urge all of us, and I'm sure you all agree, but still, again, begs repetition. I think we should see Kunal Kamra's act as an act of resistance. That was an act of protest. It doesn't have to be polite," she added.
