Sai Pallavi, in a recent interview, said that the Kashmir genocide and lynching for ‘cow smuggling’ are the same. Netizens now have divided opinions. Some take Pallavi’s side, others pointed out that both are not the same.
Sai Pallavi’s political take
Sai Pallavi is known for her grounded personality and that’s one of the reasons why people love her. During the promotions of her upcoming film, Virata Parvam, she compared the Kashmir genocide to lynching for ‘cow smuggling.’ This opinion however has left social media separated. While a section of people takes Palaavi’s side, others pointed out that both are not the same.
In an interview, Sai Pallavi was questioned about her political leanings. She said that she is ideologically neutral and was brought up that way. She added that she doesn’t know if the left-wing or the right-wing groups are correct.
Speaking about her view, the Paava Kadhaigal actress said, “I grew up in a neutral environment. I have heard about the left-wing and right-wing. But, I cannot say who is right and who is wrong.”
“The film, The Kashmir Files, shows how Kashmiri Pandits were killed. Recently, there was an incident of a person being killed for carrying a cow because he was suspected to be a Muslim. After killing the person, the attackers raised ‘Jai Shri Ram’ slogans. What is the difference between what happened in Kashmir and what happened recently?” she questioned.
The 30-year-old also added that her family taught her to be a good person. “You need to protect the oppressed. Their stature isn’t important. If you are a good human being, you don’t feel that one is right.”
Sai Pallavi’s controversial opinion has drawn reactions from all sides on social media. While a few of them agree with her statement, others pointed out that one cannot correlate genocide with lynching for ‘cow smuggling’, which is basically a crime.

She’s an actress. The job is out on makeup and entertain.. how can we expect logic from her?

Simple…just trend this #boycottviratparvam and let them know what is it to choose a wrong side.

Being diplomatic means is not seeking sympathy by supporting minorities and saying we are secular.
We can understand it’s a part of promotion.

She does Movies like Shyam Singh Roy where High caste and Brahmins are shown in bad light. She acted in Viratparvam which show's Naxals in good light. I have been saying this long ago evry film industry has anti hindu angle. But Dindu here are busy with Bollywood only

This is the mindset of entire youth in India ,
Firstly ,this media should stop interviewing sensitive questions to movie ppl and sports ppl..their interview should confine to their expertise..
Bigger issues to be dealt with bigger ppl..

Stop trying to defame her with 40 secs clip,not showing what she said before & after,& changing the context,she said I grew up in a neutral family,so I can't say who is correct,irrespective of left-wing & right-wing opressed should be protected and we should be good human beings pic.twitter.com/mrEVqCC6nB

She did say&accept that minority oppression is wrong. That’s what KPs are “A Minority”. Then she compared & said both are different where she is saying protecting Cows is minority oppression. Logical fallacy Pallavinchindi. Malar, learn to blossom with Knowledge. Don’t be victim
