New Delhi: Veteran Bollywood actor Shabana Azmi slammed Narendra Modi-led government saying that these days anyone who criticises the government is termed as “anti-national”.
“If we do not point out the flaws, how would the conditions improve?,” the actress asked while addressing after getting an award for her work for women.
“In the interest of our country, it is necessary that we also point out its shortcomings. But the atmosphere now is such that if you criticise, especially the government, you are immediately branded as anti-national,” Shabana said.
“We have grown up in `Ganga-Jamni’ (composite) culture. We should not kneel before this situation. India is a beautiful country. Any attempt to divide people cannot be good for this country,” she stated further.
