Actress Dia Mirza has come out in support of colleague Kangana Ranaut by criticizing Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut for directing an abusing remark against the ‘Queen’ actress.
It is well-known that Kangana Ranaut has been at the centre of the strong movement against the wrongdoers in Sushant Singh Rajput’s murder case. She has been vocal in her opinions, and in many cases, she has brought the bigwigs of Bollywood into the discussion.
Kangana questions the ‘Intolerance Debate Warriors’
A couple of days ago, Kangana Ranaut, said: “In 2008 Movie Mafia declared me a Psycho, in 2016 they called me a Witch and Stalker in 2020 Maharashtra Minister publicity gave me the title of Haramkhor Ladki because I said after a murder I feel unsafe in Mumbai, where are INTOLERANCE debate warriors?” This was after she was accused of disrespecting Maharashtra and Shivaji Maharaj.
Sanjay Raut had earlier called Kangana a ‘Haramkhor’
Sanjay Raut had used the words ‘Haramkhor’ for Kangana as he felt that the actress was disrespecting Maharashtra and Shivaji Maharaj. However, not many were impressed with the Shiv Sena leader’s usage of the word in public. Dia Mirza was one of the few celebs who voiced their opinion on the matter.
Strongly condemn the word ‘haramkhor’ used by @rautsanjay61. Sir you have every right to express your displeasure for what Kangana has said but you must apologise for using such language. https://t.co/6uY3AObCcw

Dia Mirza opined that although Mr Raut had his right to express his anger at Kangana’s statements, it was unjust on his part to use a foul word against her. Dia also pointed out that the trend of abusing women on social media has increased in the recent days.
She said: “The last few months have seen an unprecedented rise in name-calling and personal abuse. It is something that undermines every effort made to build a safe/equal society for women. Unfortunately, many women are also perpetuating this culture. This must stop. Let’s stand together!”
