Richa Chadha has always been open about her opinions and speaking about what she feels is right. Be it the Naxal debate or the recent JNU protests, the Panga actress has never refrained to take a stand. She was present at a promotional function of her upcoming film Panga along with Kangana Ranaut and Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari and was taken a dig at by Vivek Agnihotri for being quiet.
It all started when Kangana was asked about her opinion on the Nirbhaya case. She slammed senior lawyer Indira Jaising for supporting the convicts of the rape case. She said, “That lady should be locked in jail with them for four days. She needs it. What kind of women are those who feel sympathetic? Such women gave birth to monsters. These women give birth to people who feel sympathy for, feel love for such people, murderers.” Vivek shared this video of hers and bashed Richa for keeping quiet on the issue. He said, “Total disrupter. Even her co-star, who openly supports #ShaheenBagh and #UrbanNaxals is quiet. Because even they know they can’t support traitors openly in a press conference. Also, why speak openly when lying and virtue signaling on SM needs no courage.”
Richa made sure she gave it back to the filmmaker and posted a tweet saying that she still supports her political views and did not talk about the Nirbhaya issue because she was not asked the question. She tweeted, “Sir Ji, Kangana and I decided to not discuss politics, If the press HAD asked me the same question, I’d have shared my thoughts. I still support the brave women at #ShaheenBagh, by the Home Ministry’s own admission, there ain’t no Tukde Tukde gang. PFA RTI.”
After her unabashed reply, Vivek tweeted back by saying, “Thanks for explaining. “Societies die because wise people speak when they must not and keep quiet when they need to speak.” Btw, I filed an RTI & confirmed that officially Gandhi was neither a Mahatma nor a Rashtrapati. And the only Bhakts were Hanuman, Tulsidas, and Meerabai.”
“Those that are able to speak freely BECAUSE of democracy, do their best to destroy democracy inadvertently. And like Burke said, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing”. Also, the epithet ‘Mahatma’ was never used to harass citizens,” came as a reply by Richa.
