Bollywood actor Naseeruddin Shah has said that hatred and cruelty rule India, adding that innocent people are being murdered in the name of religion.
In a video message, the actor said that the fearless dance of hate and brutality continues in India, with walls being erected in the name of religion. He alleged that those who raise their voice against the injustices are being silenced.
Shah went on to say that journalists and actors are being stopped from working, and the artists who speak against the barbarity also get muzzled.
Shah was lashed out by the Indian media, extremist elements, and other nationalist groups as soon as his video message was shared on Twitter.
Shah has had to face unrelenting criticism from extremist organizations due to his anti-India statements.
